Abstract:Aim: Comparison of bone mineral density (BMD) in perimenopausal women with surgical menopausal women.
Methods: The present analytical cross sectional study was conducted on patients (out patients and in patients) in Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kamla Nehru Hospital, attached to IGMC Shimla. Group 1 (N=60): Perimenopausal women aged 40-45years as control. Group 2 (N=60): Women who had undergone hysterectomy with bilateral salphingoophorectomy at least 6 month ago. BMD measurements were measured by whole body dual energy X-ray absorptiometery (DEXA), with the help of Hologic Discovery QDR machine available in department of radiology.
Results: In the present study the mean age of post-surgical menopausal group was 46.0 years and in the perimenopausal group the mean age was 42.4 years. Mean parity in post-surgical menopausal group was 3.03 and 2.5 in the perimenopausal group.
Conclusions: The prevalence of osteoporosis is very high in this part of India. Both perimenopausal and post-surgical menopausal women have lower levels of BMD. Bone mineral density (BMD) can be taken as a useful marker to assess and treat osteoporosis and also to prevent complications in post-menopausal women.
