Abstract

Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease and increases the risk of developing osteoporosis. Incidence of fracture is higher in this group of patients compared to the general population and can lead to increased morbidity (1). Bone strength of the proximal femur is not only linked to bone mineral density; it also depends on the geometric properties of the bone mass (2). Hip structural analysis (HSA) is a technique used to assess hip bone structure that takes geometric measurements of the femur from dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) images (3). Objectives: To determine whether HSA measurements help predict fracture in patients with RA. Methods: Data were collected from June 2004 to August 2017 from RA patients who underwent a DEXA scan at a District General Hospital. This included hip axis length (HAL), cross-sectional area (CSA), cross-sectional moment …
