It is estimated that the ratio between the femoral and tibial growths is 0.94/0.67 (1.4), but the accuracy of the data used to obtain it is limited. We aim to find a correlation between the rate of new bone growth in between each zebra line in the patients with Osteogenesis Imperfects (OI) who have received cyclic bisphosphonate (BP) therapy with each treatment cycle between the distal tibia and proximal femur. This will allow us to quantify the growth of the distal femur and proximal tibia with accuracy. Read More

Increased fracture risk is a complication that occurs in the context of primary bone diseases such as osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). Despite being considered as the reference-standard, the use of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) to evaluate fragility fractures in OI has not been validated by prior systemic review. Identifying patients at greatest risk for bone fragility fractures and determining skeletal health markers that can monitor bone mass concerning response to bone-active treatments are important issues for clinicians. In this systematic review we assessed the clinical utility of DXA for evaluating osteoporotic bone in OI pediatric patients according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force guidelines. Read More
