Changes in histologic and biochemical indexes of bone turnover after bilateral nephrectomy in patients on hemodialysis. Evidence for a possible role of endogenous calcitonin.

Abstract:

We studied the effects of bilateral nephrectomy on bone metabolism in 27 patients on maintenance hemodialysis. After nephrectomy plasma alkaline phosphatase fell rapidly in 10 patients whose preoperative plasma levels had been higher than normal. This fall was associated with a transient decrease in osteoblast counts of iliac-bone biopsies. A fall in plasma phosphate and a rise in plasma immunoreactive calcitonin also occurred, but calcium and immunoreactive parathyroid hormone levels did not...
