Abstract

We studied the effects on the axial bone mass of total joint arthroplasty (TJA) for lower extremities in 48 female rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patientsby using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Twenty-nine postmenopausal RA patients treated only with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) served as controls. They were studied for an average duration of 63 months. The reduction in the bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine (L2-4) was significant in both groups (p < 0.01<similar to>0.05), but it was not statistically different between the two groups. The BMD of the femoral neck decreased significantly in both groups (p < 0.01-0.05) after 2 years, but it was not statistically different between the two groups. Our data suggest that TJA slowed the rapid axial bone loss usually associated with advanced RA.
