Aromatase inhibitors (AIs), blockers of estrogen biosynthesis, delay bone maturation and therefore are used increasingly to promote growth in children and adolescents with growth disorders. The effects of treatment on skeletal health are largely unknown. Since estrogen deficiency is associated with various detrimental skeletal effects, we evaluated in this cross-sectional posttreatment study vertebral body morphology, dimensions and endplates, and intervertebral disks by the use of magnetic… CONTINUE READING
