All mice were killed on day 7 afte. The surgical operation. The micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) analysis for different femoral trabecular bone sites demonstrated pathological alterations of trabecular bone mass and micro-networks at greater trochanter as shown by decreases in bone mineral density/bone volume (P<0.05) and trabecular number (P<0.05) and increases in trabecular separation (P<0.01) and bone surface/bone volume (P<0.05) in UUO mice. The present study demonstrates that UUO-induced unilateral obstructive nephropathy has markedly detrimental effects o. The trabecular trochanter o. The femur.
