For normal bone, aging has been associated with a decrease of both density and failure strength, and with the development of pathologies such as osteoporosis. Conversely, it has been reported that another common disease, osteoarthritis, may alter these age-related changes in cancellous bone, suggesting that it may have a protective role against osteoporosis and the correspondent fracture risk. It was reported that in the principal compressive region of the femoral head in osteoarthritis the… CONTINUE READING
