BOF 2.82

 

A 75-year-old female has been admitted to the orthopaedic unit with a fracture neck of femur. She has had a DEXA scan earlier in the year and this had shown osteoporosis with a high risk of fracture. You decide that the patient should be started on calcium and vitamin D supplements and a bisphosphonate.

The mechanism of action of bisphosphonates is:

 

a)      Inhibits the action of osteoclasts

b)      Increases the action of osteoblasts

c)      Increases deposition of calcium in the bone matrix

d)      Suppresses the action of parathyroid hormone

e)      Increases the action of 1,25 dihydocholecalciferol
