Histomorphometric analysis of iliac trabecular bone in otosclerosis

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

With the aim of investigating whether patients with otosclerosis suffer from a generalized bone disorder, a histomorphometric analysis of trabecular bone from the iliac crest was performed. Iliac crest biopsies from 10 patients with otosclerosis and 20 normal controls were obtained after tetracycline double labelling and examined by histomorphometry. No significant differences were found in the estimates of density and remodeling of bone between patients and sex and age-matched normal controls. Qualitatively the bone specimens showed no signs of any generalized bone disorder.
