Özet

There is an evidence that some of the essential trace elements are crucial determinants of bone health. Excess or deficiency of these elements has a role in the development of bone diseases, therefore research on trace elements in bone is very important. Iliac crest bone biopsies were optioned from twelve persons undergoing orthopedic surgery due to any reason than osteoporosis. Cortical and trabecular parts were separated, and blood and fats were removed. Up to 30 minor and trace elements were determined in these samples by instrumental neutron activation analysis and other techniques and their relations were discussed.
