One of the extrapulmonary effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is characterized by a low bone mineral density (BMD) and microarchitectural deterioration. Most studies in COPD patients use dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) only to determine osteoporosis; therefore, microarchitectural changes without a low BMD are missed. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and correlates of osteoporosis in COPD patients based on DXA, spinal… CONTINUE READING
