Complications at diagnosis in primary hyperparathyroidism

Capatina Cristina , Caragheorgheopol Andra , Voicu Gabriela , Poiana Catalina

Introduction: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is associated with adverse effects especially on the bones and kidney. While nowadays it is mostly diagnosed at an asymptomatic stage, patients with overt involvement of the target organs at the time of diagnosis are still encountered.Aim: To explore the frequency of disease complications already present at the time of diagnosis in a cohort of patients with sporadic PHPT who meet the current surgical guide...

Association between serum magnesium levels and physical performance tests in patients with primary osteoporosis

Iulia Greere Daniela Ioana , Voicu Gabriela , Manda Dana Alice , Poiană Cătălina

Introduction: Osteoporosis is the most frequent metabolic bone disease worldwide affecting primarily the senior population. The associated bone loss in combination with a decline in physical performance lead to increased incidence of falls and fragility fractures. Thus, improving physical performance is key to preventing osteoporotic fractures.Methods: A total of 140 participants were inrolled in a cross-sectional study. Secondary causes of osteoporosis ...

Adrenal tumors in menopause: bone assessment

Ghemigian Adina , Carsote Mara , Dumitrascu Anda , Dumitru Nicoleta , Valea Ana , Voicu Gabriela , Dumitrache Constantin

Introduction: Menopause correlates endocrine dysfunctions; whether an adrenal incidentaloma represents one of these it is difficult to establish since an age-dependent pattern of incidence has been described. Bone assays are necessary according to years since last menstruation but also if persistent hypercortisolemia is confirmed.Aim: This is a series of cases incidentally found with an adrenal tumor (AT) and osteopenia while evaluation of their menopaus...

The follow-up in patients evaluated based on quantitative ultrasound: a prospective study

Carsote Mara , Radoi Valentin , Popescu Mihaela , Dusceac Roxana , Ene Cristina , Voicu Gabriela , Coculescu Mihail , Poiana Catalina

Introduction: The heel quantitative ultrasound (QUS) is useful tool in the assessment of fracture risk especially if cost issues are involved. It might be helpful in follow-up the patients who will not be treated with anti-osteoporotic drugs.Aim: To present the bone evaluation (DXA) after a period of time in patients who are initially assesed by both DXA and QUS.Material and patients: This is a prospective pilot study in a group of...

The QUS fracture risk groups: unifactorial analyze regarding bone markers and DXA assessment

Carsote Mara , Chirita Corina , Radoi Valentin , Ene Cristina , Gruia Adriana , Voicu Gabriela , Poiana Catalina , Coculescu Mihail

Introduction: The quantitative ultrasound (QUS) is an useful tool in the evaluation of the fragility fracture risk.Aim and study design: We performed the QUS fragility fracture risk groups (valided by the golden standard DXA) by a unifactorial analyze including the bone markers.Method: The cut offs used were: SI≤59U (high risk), SI≥83U (low risk), and medium risk with SI between 59 and 83U. The QUS analyze was performed...
