The etiology of this patient's osteodystrophy
could not be confirmed, and a hereditary component cannot be ruled out; however, an inadequate diet likely played a significant role.
This case is another example where the radiologist may offer a definitive diagnosis (renal osteodystrophy
with secondary hyperparathyroidism) based on diagnostic radiographic features aiding further clinical management.
The histopathological examination of the femur also showed evidence of osteoclastic and osteolytic activity leading to osteodystrophy
Cadmium toxicity to ringed seals (Phoca hispida)--an epidemiological study of possible cadmium induced nephropathy and osteodystrophy
in ringed seals (Phoca hispida) from O.
The hemodialysis treatment process itself creates a new clinical pathology which includes uremic cardiomyopathy, renal osteodystrophy
, and dialysis dementia (Funck-Brentano 1980).
The unmet medical need is compelling - elevated PTH exacerbates mineral imbalances (particularly calcium and phosphorus) in ESRD patients, and is linked to severe pathological effects such as osteodystrophy
, vascular calcification, and increased risk for cardiovascular events, all of which contribute to morbidity and mortality in these patients.
Irrespective of the cause, the high level of PTH observed with primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism increases osteoclast activity, which eventually leads to osteodystrophy
Aim: We planned this study in order to evaluate the radiological and biochemical parameters that may be useful in the early diagnosis of renal osteodystrophy
in the patients with chronic renal failure, prospectively.
Phosphate retention and the resulting hyperphosphatemia in patients with ESRD on dialysis are usually associated with secondary hyperparathyroidism, renal osteodystrophy
, soft tissue mineralization and the progression of renal failure.
Consequently, bone structure is weakened this condition is called Renal Osteodystrophy
or Renal Bone Disease.
Risk factors for vertebral fractures in renal osteodystrophy
The differential diagnoses included osteopetrosis, Paget disease, hyperparathyroidism, renal osteodystrophy
, osteomalacia, and skeletal fluorosis.
