Severe burn injury can alter bone metabolism

Severe burn injury can alter bone metabolism
February 8, 2016

Changes in bone turnover markers suggest that severe burn injuries lead to alterations in bone metabolism that can influence bone quality and structure, according to study findings.

“A severe thermal trauma causes early and sustained alterations in bone metabolism. To date there is limited information about the consequences of these changes, but elevated bone turnover is well known to cause structural and biomechanical changes in the skeleton,” Christian Muschitz, MD, head of the osteoporosis unit and clinical research team, St. Vincent Hospital Vienna, Academic Teaching Hospital of the Medical University of Vienna, told Endocrine Today.
