Recovery of Bone Mineral Mass After Upper Limb Fractures in Children and Teenagers

Published in Journal of pediatric orthopedics. 2019, vol. 39, no. 4, p. e248-e252
Abstract Loss of bone mineral mass and muscle atrophy are predictable consequences of cast-mediated immobilization following wrist and forearm fractures. This study aimed to prospectively determine whether previously reported lower bone mineral mass following immobilization for wrist and forearm fractures in children and teenagers had recovered at 6- and 18-month follow-up.
