Musculoskeletal Outcomes After Bone Marrow Transplant
The purpose of the study is to evaluate bone mineral density and muscle strength in survivors of bone marrow transplant. Association with age, type of transplant, steroids, years since transplant, body composition, endocrinopathies, radiation, quality of life and physical activity will be explored.
