Bone mineral density and micro-architectural changes in advanced chronic kidney disease

Salam Syazrah , Khwaja Arif , Eastell Richard

Background: Risk of fracture in chronic kidney disease (CKD) population is high and it is associated with increased mortality. CKD affects bone quality through changes in bone turnover, microarchitecture, and mineralization. Secondary hyperparathyroidism has different effects on cortical and trabecular bone but dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is unable to effectively differentiate these bone compartments. High resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQ...
