Higher bone mineral density, smaller bone size found in patients with foot or ankle OA

from Orthopedics Today

Researchers from Sweden discovered that after adjusting for body mass index, patients with foot or ankle osteoarthritis had higher bone mineral density and smaller femoral neck width as measured by DEXA compared to controls. “Patients with [osteoarthritis] OA in the foot or ankle have higher [bone mineral density] BMD and smaller bone size than being expected by their [body mass index] BMI,” Maria C. Cöster, MD, of Skåne University Hospital in Malmö, Sweden, and colleagues wrote in their study. more
