Mineralized Bone Histology of Metabolic Bone Diseases

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The author presents the bone biopsy: indications for the procedure, laboratory treatment of the sample and bioptic histological pictures of major metabolic bone diseases. Bone biopsy retains the most important role in nephrology for the determination of variants of renal bone disease, a consideration which is important for therapeutic decisions. In endocrinology, it is important for the diagnosis of (mostly) occult osteomalacia and hereditary disorders and to clarify diagnostic biases.
