Abstract:

Background/Objectives: Low areal bone mineral density (aBMD) of the hip and knee region has been associated with fracture risk in individuals with SCI; however the contribution of bone micro-architecture to fracture risk has not been evaluated. The primary objective of this study was to determine whether a relationship exists between indices of bone strength (aBMD at the distal femur and proximal tibia; trabecular vBMD; average hole size, HA; cortical thickness, CTh; buckling ratio, BR; cross-sectional moment of inertia, CSMI; and polar moment of inertia, PMI) and potential fracture risk factors (gender, age, bisphosphonate use, time post-injury, fractures, and completeness of injury). The secondary objectives were to 1) determine whether indices of bone strength can discriminate between SCI patients with and without fragility fractures; 2) determine if these indices of bone strength correlate with the number of fractures sustained; and 3) determine the proportion of individuals with SCI who have a trabecular vBMD at the ultra-distal tibia that is below 72mg/cm3.
