Stroke patients have increased risk of hip fractures. Nearly all fractures occur on the hemiplegic side, and reduced bone mineral density (BMD) may be an important predisposing factor. The aim of this study was to investigate the degree of demineralization within the first year after stroke, and to elucidate a possible difference in patients with high versus low ambulatory levels. Forty acute stroke patients were followed (17 initially wheelchair-bound and 23 initially ambulatory). BMD was… CONTINUE READING
