A six-year prospective cohort study on the changes in bone density and bone quality up to peak bone mass in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) with and without 2 years of calcium and vit-D supplementation
Refereed conference paper presented and published in conference proceedings


摘要Introduction: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is associated with osteopenia which could persist into adulthood
affecting attainment of peak bone mass thus resulting in osteoporosis in late adulthood. We previously reported a
randomised double-blind placebo-controlled trial (the Cal study) showing significant bone health improvement with
2-year calcium and vitamin D (Ca+Vit-D) supplementation for girls with AIS. This study addressed the important issue
whether bone health improvement from the initial 2-year Ca+Vit-D supplementation could persist as subjects approached towards peak bone mass at 6 years, i.e., after 4 years of supplement discontinuation.

Materials and Methods: This was an extension of the Cal study on girls with AIS (aged 11-14 years; mean age 12.9 years; Tanner stage
