    Thanks to IanG for getting the full paper to me while on the road.

    This study is largely nonsensical. It was a case control study. The cases were older than the controls and BMI was higher in the cases than the controls --> both are potential confounders in the cause of PTTD --> no matter what the results, they can not be relied upon!

    As for a plausible mechanism for an association between PTTD and LLD; they found PTTD in the longer leg in 41% and in the shorter leg in 43%!!!! - that kinda defeats the whole claim of what they allegedly found in the study!
