The role of bone age in the evaluation of trabecular bone score (TBS) of children and adolescents 5--19 years old

Guagnelli Miguel Angel , Ambrosi Regina , Lopez-Gonzalez Desiree , Winzenrieth Renaud , Del Rio Luis , Clark Patricia

Rationale: Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) is a texture-based tool analyzing DXA images in order to assess bone microarchitecture in the lumbar region. In pediatric population, definition of normative values has remained elusive due to the disparities of results in normal population, probably link to uncontrolled factors which impact bone microarchitecture and the nonlinear behavior of bone growth. Our objective was to evaluate TBS in healthy Mexican children and adolescents using...

Chronological age, height adjusted age and bone age: Which of them correlates better to bone mineral density in kidney-transplant recipient children?

Ambrosi Regina , Guagnelli Miguel Angel , Almiray Alma , Hernandez Ana , Medeiros Mara , Clark Patricia

Chronic kidney disease in children causes multiple bone alterations, particularly renal osteodystrophy, which affects both bone quality and size, in turn causing short stature, bone deformities and brittleness. Once they get a transplant, this process starts to revert, and although mineral alterations improve, short stature often requires growth hormone supplementation but bone fragility requires evaluations in order to revert the disease’s effects. DXA is a valuable tool...

Fracture prevalence in children 0–19 years-old in Mexico: A 10-year cross-sectional analysis

Clark Patricia , Barbato Annarella , Guagnelli Miguel Angel , Rascon Jose Alberto , Denova Edgar , Borja Victor Hugo

Fracture prevalence in children appears to change in recent years due to variations in physical activity and enforcement of laws that protect children within motor vehicles. However, in Mexico such variation has not been explored so far.Objective: To analyze fracture prevalence in the paediatric population of Mexico to detect patterns of change in time, between genres and among different diagnoses.Methods: We analyzed data from the...
