Age Peculiarities of Femoral Bone Mineral Density in Women in Donetsk Region

V.V. Povoroznyuk, F.V. Klimovitsky, N.I. Dzerovich


The article considers the standard data of femoral bone mineral density for women living in Donetsk region. 593 healthy women aged 20–84 years old have been examined. Examina-tion was performed in Osteoporosis Centre (R&DI of Traumatology and Orthopaedy of Donetsk National Medical University named after M. Gorky). Mineral density of the femoral neck and femo-ral bone was assessed with the help of dual energy densitometers Discovery QPR, Bedford, the USA. The result of the study demonstrated that the age influences much the indices of bone mineral density. Women reached the peak of the bone mass in their 30-ies. Loss of the bone tissue increased with the onset of postmenopausal period. Femoral osteoporosis incidence is age-dependent. The standard base for densitometer Discovery QPR has been firstly developed in Ukraine.
