Aims and objectives: Medical and social importance of osteoporosis has recently increased significantly. According to the forecast of International Osteoporosis Foundation in the coming years, the number of osteoporotic fractures may increase by 23 % [1]. Among fractures occurring against the background of this patholog[...]

Methods and materials: The presented study included 210 women, postmenopausal, who underwent bone densitometry by quantitative computed tomography. By age surveyed were distributed as follows: 50-59 years (n = 73), 60-69 years (n = 58), 70-79 years (n = 53), 80 years and older (n = 26). When conducting bone densitometry w[...]

Results: Implementation of CT-densitometry from 28,1±3,1 % women total sample revealed osteoporosis in 44,8±3,4 % - osteopenia and 27,1±3,1 % of bone mineral density was within the normal range. In the age groups this ratio had the following distribution: in women 50-59 years of osteoporosis diagnosed in 20,[...]

Conclusion: Evaluation of bone mineral density in postmenopausal women by quantitative computed tomography with increasing age has been an increase bilateral asymmetry index values ​​for both trabecular and cortical bone of the lumbar vertebrae. Reducing lumbar vertebral bone mass is associated with an increa[...]
