Can Bone Health Improvement after Initial 2-Year Calcium and Vitamin D Supplementation be Maintained in Idiopathic Scoliosis after 4-Year of Treatment Discontinuation – A Prospective Randomized Double-blinded Placebo-controlled Trial
Refereed conference paper presented and published in conference proceedings


摘要Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is associated with low bone mass which could persists into adulthood and has been reported to be a significant and independent prognostic factor for for curve progression in AIS. Given that AIS girls have low dietary calcium intake and high prevalence of Vit-D insufficiency, our group has previously reported the first 2-year randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled trial with calcium(Ca) and Vit-D supplementation to AIS girls with low bone mass(the Cal study) showing strong evidences of positive bone accretion effects with Ca+Vit-D supplementation.

This study was an extension of the Cal study to address the important issue whether bone health improvement from the initial 2-year Ca+Vit-D supplementation could persist as subjects approached Peak Bone Mass at 6-year ie after 4-year of supplement
