Low trabecular bone score better predicts prevalent vertebral fractures in younger rather than older women starting endocrine therapy for breast cancer

Context: Although Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) has been widely and independently associated with fragility fractures, its diagnostic power in certain populations remains to be established. Women initiating aromatase inhibitors for breast cancer should be screened for bone health to prevent cancer treatment-induced bone loss as much as possible. TBS is regarded as an adjunctive tool to evaluate these patients, but thresholds of pharmacologic interventions are still a gray zone, ...

Trabecular bone score increases the proportion of patients with asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism meeting surgical criteria

Malagrino Matteo , Piazza Anna , Bisceglia Nicolo , Bernardi Boari Marcello , Vandi Giulia , Altieri Paola , Pagotto Uberto , Zavatta Guido

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...
