Bone mass, bone microarchitecture and anthropometric measurements during childhood growth in Spanish girls

Rio Luis Del , Winzenrieth Renaud , Cormier Catherine , DiGregorio Silvana

The aim of the present study was to evaluate bone mass and bone microarchitectural texture as assessed by trabecular bone score (TBS) modification at spine during childhood growth in girls.The study group was composed of 415 healthy girls aged between 2 and 17 years old. Height, weight and BMI Z-scores were evaluated and compared to The WHO Child Growth Standards. Pubertal stage was evaluated using Tanner score. The areal BMD (aBMD) was assessed...

Influence of age and gender on spine bone density and TBS microarchitectural texture parameters in infants

Winzenrieth Renaud , Cormier Catherine , DiGregorio Silvana , Rio Luis Del

Children bone knowledge is relatively sparse. This is especially true for infant and for bone microarchitecture data. We have investigated, in this study, the age-related modifications of spine microarchitectural texture, as assessed by TBS, on male and female infants during their two first years of life.The study group was composed of 143 and 109 healthy female and male infants aged between 0 and 2 years. Height and weight Z-scores were signifi...
