Authors: Hardes J, Gosheger G, Budny T Abstract Bone sarcomas are extremely rare representing approximately 0.2% among all cancer types. Due to the rarity of these tumors both the patients and the physicians can overlook or misinterpret the first often unspecific symptoms of these tumors (pain, limping and swelling). Therefore, radiographic examination (X-ray and/or MRI) of the involved region in case of inexplicable symptoms is strongly recommended. The most common primary malignant bone tumor entity is osteosarcoma, followed by chondrosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma. Osteosarcomas and Ewing sarcomas occur predominantly...

CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first study comparing a total ceramic metal-free knee system with a geometrically identical metallic TKA (total knee arthroplasty). Longer follow-ups will be required to demonstrate the overall efficiency of this TKR and perhaps to expand its medical indication. PMID: 29471557 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Yamamoto N, Miki T, Nishiyama A, Dan'ura T, Matsui Y, Ozaki T Abstract This is the first report of extensive bilateral patellar tendon ossification occurring over a prolonged time after a unilateral knee injury. An 84-year-old Japanese man with a spinal cord injury caused by a burst fracture of the T12 vertebra presented with a bony hard prominence on the left knee, which was injured in a traffic accident when he was 77 years old. Radiography revealed extensive ossification of the bilateral patellar tendons. We review the English literature with a focus on the localization of bilateral heterotopic ossifica...

Authors: Sonekatsu M, Sonohata M, Kitajima M, Kawano S, Mawatari M Abstract In patients with poliomyelitis, degenerative arthritis of the hip may be encountered in the paralytic or normal contralateral limb because of leg length discrepancy, pelvic obliquity, or severe deformities of the affected hip. Although total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common orthopedic procedures, there are few reports of THA in adult patients with residual poliomyelitis. From March 2001 to January 2011, 5 patients with residual poliomyelitis (6 hips) underwent THA using uncemented implants at our hospital. We retrospectively...

The Commission of the European Communities published image quality criteria for imaging modalities. However, none were established for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Such criteria are warranted due to the complexity and health and safety risks associated with MRI. The purpose of this study was to establish image quality criteria for MRI examinations of the knee, providing harmonisation of image quality, improving practice and reducing risks.

AbstractIntrapulmonary teratoma is a rare and little-known disease. The present case was that of an adolescent with recurrent cough and haemoptysis. Chest radiography revealed a mass on the left lung base, and computed tomography (CT) indicated a heterogeneous tumour with a fluid component, soft parts, fat, and calcifications in the left upper lobe. Upper left lobectomy was performed; histopathological findings confirmed a mature pulmonary teratoma.

ConclusionThe volume of blood loss was lower and the operation time was shorter in ACDF than in ACCF for the treatment of two-level CSM. Sagittal balance was better in the ACDF group than in the ACCF group, and this observation may lead to a reduced occurrence of axial symptoms.
