With excellent outcomes reported (1 and 5 year survivals of 90% and 70% respectively) increasing attention is paid to ensuring long-term wellbeing after transplantation. A large proportion of patients are diagnosed with osteoporosis and risk of fracture in the post-transplant period may be as high as 30% following transplant.

It has the potential to significantly improve survival outcomes however, transplant benefit has likely been achieved only by highly experienced Centre(s). Since eligible patients for transplantation also have excellent prognosis with standard management, care...
