Prevention of early bone loss around the prosthesis by administration of anti-osteoporotic agents and influences of collared and non-collared femoral stem prostheses on early periprosthetic bone loss
European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, 07/05/2012
Ji WP et al. – Dual–energy X–ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan can quantitatively determine bone loss around the prosthesis after total hip arthroplasty. Bone mineral density around the prosthesis is correlated with administration of anti–osteoporotic agents. Fosamax + caltrate D + Xianlinggubao can prevent early bone loss around the prosthesis.
