Osteopenia at the hip and low total body calcium content have been reported in women with Marfan syndrome. Using dual X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA), we evaluated the lumbar spine L2‐L4 and proximal femur bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm2) in 32 women and 16 children with Marfan syndrome. The women were 38 ± 10 (SD) years old (23–58 years); their mean height was 178.6 ± 8 cm. The children (9 boys and 5 girls) were 9.9–17.5 years old. Children were tall for their ages but of normal weight. All… Expand
Bone mineral density in adults with Marfan syndrome.
TLDR
Axial BMD is lower than normal in Marfan adults, and this reduction may contribute to fractures seen in the Marfan population. Expand
Bone Mineral Density in Sixty Adult Patients with Marfan Syndrome
TLDR
Both men and women with Marfan syndrome have a significant deficit of BMD at the hip and radius, and the decrease is present equally in both sexes and is more pronounced at predominantly cortical sites. Expand
Assessment of bone mineral density in adults and children with Marfan syndrome
TLDR
The results lead us to question the value of aggressive BMD evaluations by DXA in patients with diagnosed Marfan syndrome, particularly prior to reaching mid-age, as any application of bone mineral replacement therapy in these patients may be premature based on the existing evidence. Expand
Areal bone mineral density in children and adolescents with Marfan syndrome: evidence of an evolving problem.
TLDR
Young patients with MFS have markedly low BMD at the lumbar spine and femur, and values show a tendency to decrease over time in the peripheral skeleton, which may lead to a low peak bone mass, increasing the fracture risk during adult life. Expand
Increased fracture rate in children and adolescents with Marfan syndrome.
TLDR
The incidence of fractures was higher in patients with MFS compared to general population of the same age and latitude, and the management of MFS must account bone status health and start strategies of fracture prevention. Expand
Assessment of Bone Mineral Status in Children With Marfan Syndrome
TLDR
It is found that MFS patients have significantly lower BMC and BMD in whole body and lumbar spine, and larger longitudinal studies are required to evaluate the natural history, incidence of fractures, and effects of pharmacological therapy. Expand
Bone mineral density in Marfan syndrome. A large case-control study.
TLDR
Men and women with Marfan syndrome have significant osteopenia independent from BMI, as well as healthy controls of similar height and BMI. Expand

TLDR
It is recommended that measurement of bone mineral status should be part of the longitudinal clinical investigation of MFS children, and patients with a FBN1 premature termination codon mutation had a more severe musculoskeletal phenotype than patients with an inframe mutation. Expand
Bone Mineral Density and Skeletal Manifestations in Patients with Sotos Syndrome
  • 2020
Objective: Sotos syndrome is a rare overgrowth disorder. Bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover data in patients with Sotos syndrome are scarce. We describe the skeletal status of a paediatricExpand
Antiretroviral Therapy and Bone Health
TLDR
Significant correlations were observed between low BMD and increasing age and longer duration of ART but no relationship was observed with gender, therapy regimen or serum calcium or phosphate levels. Expand

Bone mineral status of women with Marfan syndrome.
TLDR
Women with Marfan syndrome have bone deficits at the proximal femur as well as of the whole body, and this deficit is not related to scoliosis and persists when corrected for bone size. Expand
Osteoporosis in unstable adult scoliosis.
TLDR
Changes were found in the youngest age groups, indicating reductions in bone mineral content earlier in the adult life of white women with a specific type of high-morbidity US characterized by the marker of lateral spondylolisthesis. Expand
Clinical and anthropometric correlates of bone mineral acquisition in healthy adolescent girls.
TLDR
Bone mineral apparent density (BMAD) is presented, which is BMC normalized to a derived bone reference volume, which minimizes the effect of bone geometry and allows comparisons of mineral status among bones of similar shape but different size. Expand
Simple measurement of femoral geometry predicts hip fracture: The study of osteoporotic fractures
TLDR
Hip axis length predicts hip fractures independently of age and bone mineral density in elderly women and if verified by additional studies, can improve the assessment of hip fracture risk compared to a measurement of femoral neck bone density alone. Expand

TLDR
New analysis methods to reduce the confounding effect of bone size are described, and a parameter, bone mineral apparent density (BMAD, g/cm3), is introduced that better reflects bone apparent density. Expand

TLDR
This paper summarizes issues and proposes diagnostic criteria for osteoporosis for practical use and addresses a number of problems which need to be addressed in adapting a conceptual definition for clinical use. Expand
Progression of aortic dilatation and the benefit of long-term beta-adrenergic blockade in Marfan's syndrome.
TLDR
Prophylactic beta-adrenergic blockade is effective in slowing the rate of aortic dilatation and reducing the development of aortsic complications in some patients with Marfan's syndrome. Expand
Location on chromosome 15 of the gene defect causing Marfan syndrome.
TLDR
The chromosomal localization of the mutation in Marfan syndrome is a first step toward the isolation and characterization of the defective gene and serves as a diagnostic test in families in which cosegregation of these markers with the disease has been confirmed. Expand
Rare inflammatory and hereditary connective tissue diseases.
TLDR
The pregnant woman with the Marfan syndrome and pre-existing cardiovascular disease has a substantially increased risk of developing a major complication during gestation most commonly aortic aneurysm, dissection, rupture or insufficiency. Expand
Body fat assessed from total body density and its estimation from skinfold thickness: measurements on 481 men and women aged from 16 to 72 years.
TLDR
Measurement of body density or of total body K or oftotal body water allows a calculation of the relative proportion of these two compartments in the body and therefore also of the total fat content. Expand
