Computed Tomographic Measurements of Thigh Muscle Cross-Sectional Area and Attenuation Coefficient Predict Hip Fracture: The Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study
TLDR
Decreased thigh muscle HU, a measure of fatty infiltration of muscle, is associated with increased risk of hip fracture and appears to account for the association between reduced muscle strength, physical performance, and muscle mass and risk of Hip fracture. Expand
Sarcopenia, Cardiopulmonary Fitness, and Physical Disability in Community-Dwelling Elderly People
TLDR
Sarcopenia was associated with physical disability in elderly men and the association between sarcopenia and physical disability was mediated to a large extent by decreased cardiopulmonary fitness. Expand

TLDR
This Perspective will provide the evidence for a shared genetic influence on bone and muscle, seeking to unravel some of the contradictory findings published thus far and provide indications that there are pleiotropic relationships between bone structure/mass and muscle mass/function. Expand
