If the appendicular
DXA is positive or equivocal then a confirmatory test is covered.
12) measured BMD at appendicular
sites using SPA in 892 men, and stated that adjusting BMD for weight increased the rate of bone loss.
1%, respectively), and appendicular
fracture detection was superior to that of the axial skeleton (76.
Mucosal hyperplasia, retention cyst, mucinous cyst adenoma, and mucinous cyst adenocarcinoma of the appendix are four different types of appendicular
Khan  et al, Sensitivity and Specificity of bilirubin in predicting appendicular
perforation 88% and 80% respectively; similarly, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of bilirubin in predicting appendicular
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary malignant bone tumor and occurs with greatest frequency in the appendicular
They reported that BMD at axial and appendicular
sites was higher than in those with no listhesis at L3-L4, was similar at L4-L5, and was lower at L5-S1.
These findings were non-compressibility (83%), appendicular
tube (55%), appendicolith (13%), omental thickening (80.
root was laparoscopically ligated and cut in 9 cases, and was removed and inverted at the umbilical wound under direct visualization in seven cases.
In particular age groups and depending on the anatomical position of appendix, it may present atypically, either in the form of abscesses in soft tissues, appendicular
masses or lead to intestinal obstruction, which may result in high morbidity and prolonged hospital stay.
It has been reported that it provides valid estimates of appendicular
skeletal muscle mass, and skeletal muscle measures with DXA are associated with prevalent and incident physical disability.
All the cases were assessed for bone mineral density from appendicular
as well as axial skeleton.
