Abstract
The main aim was to assess whether young and healthy daughters of women with fractures of the distal end of the radius (DER) had less bone mass than the control group. In an observational study of cases and controls (1:1), the daughters of women with fractures of DER (96) were selected at the age of reaching the peak of bone mass and compared with a control group (91). All women underwent medical history, analytical determinations, and densitometry. In the case group, we found lower bone mass values at the spine and femoral neck than the control group. We also found a lower bone mass at the hips of daughters of women with 1 or more osteoporotic fractures associated with DER and at the lumbar spine in those whose mothers had densitometric osteoporosis. In conclusion, young daughters of women with fractures of DER had lower levels of bone mass density, with a possible “location-specific” occurrence based on the presence of 1 or more osteoporotic fractures associated with DER or on the presence of maternal densitometric osteoporosis.
