Charpidou, Theodosia; Lang, Franziska; Langenegger, Thomas; Dedes, Konstantin J; Honegger, Christoph (2013). Bilateral transient osteoporosis of the knee during pregnancy. Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 287(6):1259-1261.

Abstract

Transient osteoporosis is a rare disease, which can affect pregnant women in the third trimester. Bone marrow edema syndrome, transient bone demineralization, hip algodystrophy, regional migratory osteoporosis, and even reflex sympathetic dystrophy all are terms that have been used to describe the condition. Babinsky and Fromen first documented the symptoms of transient osteoporosis in 1916, and in 1959 Curtiss and Kincaid discussed two cases affecting women in the third trimester of pregnancy. The hip joints are most commonly affected in pregnant women, being reported in 76 % of cases.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
