The relationship between serum vitamin D concentrations and in vivo tetracycline labeling of osteoid in crush fracture osteoporosis.
Twenty of 22 consecutive British patients with crush fracture osteoporosis had transiliac bone biopsies following double in vivo tetracycline labeling synchronized with the collection of serum for the measurement of vitamin D metabolites. A significant but direct (rather than inverse) relationship was found between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (calcidiol) levels and the fraction of cancellous surfaces covered with osteoid not taking either tetracycline label (r = 0.53, P less than 0.02). There was no ...Expand abstract
