Abstract

To reveal systemic and local osteoporosis, the authors studied biochemical markers of bone metabolism in vibration disease patients. The vibration disease patients appeared to have the most frequent and marked osteoporosis in peripheral bones--hands (in 90% of cases) and forearms (in 66.7%). Prevalence of systemic osteoporosis and osteopenia reached 11.7 and 48.3% in the select respectively. According to biochemical markers, bone reconstruction state was characterized by moderately intensified bone resorption and diminished bone formation.
