What is bone resorption and bone formation defect if osteoporosis?

What is bone resorption and bone formation defect if osteoporosis?

One process is: Greater. In osteoporosis, bone resorption is more prevalent then bone formation. As a result, a negative bone balance occurs and bone loss will occur and over time osteopenia or osteoporosis will occur. Medications such as Fosamax and Boniva (ibandronate) slow down bone resorption. ...Read more

Bone Resorption (Definition)

Bone resorption usually refers to bone mineral reduction because cellular components osteoclasts remove calcium from bones into blood. Bone resorption exceeds formation in older patients due to hormonal imbalance, lack of exercise, and possibly nutrition and vit. D deficiency. Hyperparathyroidism sometimes related to renal disease, chronic inflammation, disuse ...Read more

How does rods placed into the bone effect bone marrow? If bone marrow loss is a result of this condition, would that also cause anemia?

How does rods placed into the bone effect bone marrow?  If bone marrow loss is a result of this condition, would that also cause anemia?

Probably not: Much. In the common situation where a rod is placed in the femur to stabilize a serious fracture there would be effacement of some bone marrow, but not enough in of itself to cause a deficit in rbc production leading to anemia. The fracture itself and the surgery could result in low HGB shortly after the injury. ...Read more

What is bone metabolism in relation to healing of a fracture?

Metabolism: Bone is living tissue, and bone metabolism simply refers to the cellular activity of bone, whether that bone is healing from a fracture or responding to the normal activities of everyday life. In fracture healing, a combination of osteoblastic (bone forming) and osteoclastic (bone breakdown) activity occurs which ultimately leads to healing of the bone. ...Read more

Also, you need on-going care for the rest of your life, since there is no "cure" for this condition yet. It can be improved and maintained, but it requires immediate, assertive, and on-going professional care. Without that, bye bye teeth. ...Read more

Is it "better" to have sclerotic bone lesions, than lytic ones with bone metases? Is there still a greater chance of fracture of the affected bone, whether it is lytic or now sclerotic?

Good question: Excellent question.Unfortunately not an easy answer. But overall, either will do structural damage to the bone and leave it more vulnerable to a fracture or collapse.The lytic ones are quite a bit weaker,however, and can break with little or even no trauma.Both can be very painful and difficult to treat.Also,remember the source: breast,prostate,lung,thyroid, and kidney are more apt to go to bone. ...Read more

How common is a bone infection or fracture site infection with closed bone fractures?

Not common: If the fracture is truly closed, bacteria should not be able to infect the bone since it isn't exposed to the outside environment. Fractures, where bone is penetrated through the skin or visible through a wound, have variable infection rates based on the size of the wound and the time until the patient receives antibiotics. ...Read more

Which type of avn is more dangerous, lead to collapse of talus bone. Patchy avn or diffuse avn ? How to care it ?

All avn is not good: Avascular necrosis means loss of blood supply to that area. Patchy or diffuse doesn't matter, except that patchy might indicate that blood supply is starting to return to the area. When the bone doesn't get the blood supply, the bone starts to demineralize making it appear "patchy" at first. If blood supply is not restored, the calcium in the bone will continue to be absorbed and collapse. ...Read more
