Context: Several studies have shown that Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) predicts fractures independently of Bone Mineral Density (BMD) measured with Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA), even in patients with Primary Hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), known to have deteriorated bone microarchitecture. Low TBS values alone are still not considered as a single criterium to recommend parathyroid surgery. Measuring bone quality in patients with PHPT may be helpful to identify a proportion...
