Spinal cord injury (SCI), as a primarily neurological disorder that causes muscular atrophy, is well known to be associated with sub-lesional bone losses. These losses are more pronounced from epiphyseal than from diaphyseal regions. We hypothesized that this discrepancy may be explained by anatomical variation in endocortical circumference. Nine men who had attracted SCI 9 to 32 (mean 21.4) years prior to study inclusion were matched to able bodied control (Ctrl) people by age, height and… CONTINUE READING
