The human spine, in particular the lumbar spine, is subject to significant compressive and bending stresses, which affect the structure of the bone tissue of the vertebrae. The more heterogeneous the ...
A vertebral fracture is the most common complication of osteoporosis, and various factors are involved in its occurrence. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of trabecular and cortic...
In order to investigate the relationship between changes in blood circulation and bone mineral density (BMD) loss, the characteristic parameters reflecting the function of tissue oxygen metabolism are...
Denosumab is an antiresorptive drug with demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of osteoporosis. However, discontinuation of this agent is associated with increased bone turnover and rapid bone loss, ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of quantitative perfusion parameters in 3-T MRI for benign-malignant differentiation in musculoskeletal tumors.
The etiology and pathogenesis of osteoporosis has been extensively discussed. The relationship between bone blood circulation and the formation of bony trabeculae has been less understood...
Despite the high prevalence of low back pain, little is still known about its underlying pathology. Only a small proportion of people (~1%) have a diagnosable pathoanatomical entity causin...
The primary aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of low BMD and vertebral fractures, as determined by a standardized assessment, and to elucidate the role of bone qua...
Study on quantitative perfusion parameters acquired on MR imaging of patients with non-tumoral pathology of the musculoskeletal system.
DCE-MRI were performed in sixty adults (hips and lumbar spine). For each region of interest studied, the investigators determined the morphology of each time-concentration curve (TCC) and ...
A quantitative prediction of the biological, ecotoxicological or pharmaceutical activity of a molecule. It is based upon structure and activity information gathered from a series of similar compounds.
The last bone in the VERTEBRAL COLUMN in tailless primates considered to be a vestigial tail-bone consisting of three to five fused VERTEBRAE.
Locations, on the GENOME, of GENES or other genetic elements that encode or control the expression of a quantitative trait (QUANTITATIVE TRAIT, HERITABLE).
Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
