Factors affecting skeletal integrity in an Australia Rett syndrome cohort and best practice guidelines for prevention and management of low bone density in Rett syndrome
MetadataShow full item record
Rett syndrome is a rare genetic neurodevelopmental disorder. Cross sectional and longitudinal densitometry assessment in Rett syndrome found decreased bone density with age but muscle mass and mensus afforded some protection. Consensus-based clinical management guidelines provided recommendations for clinical assessment and pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions. These data have the potential to reduce the frequency of fractures in Rett syndrome and stimulate further research that aims to ameliorate the impacts of poor bone health.
