Analysis of three-dimensional computed tomography talar morphology in relation to pediatric pes planovalgus deformity

This study aimed to investigate three-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT) talar morphology in children with idiopathic and neuromuscular pes planovalgus. Eleven children [nine boys, two girls; mean (SD) age: 10.5 (2.8) years] with idiopathic pes planovalgus and 15 children [three boys, 12 girls; mean (SD) age: 10.8 (3.4) years] with neuromuscular pes planovalgus were included. All patients underwent 3D CT and weight-bearing anteroposterior, lateral, and axial radiography. Demographic data and talar 3D CT and radiographic measurements were compared between both groups. The correlation between the measurements was also analyzed. The neuromuscular group showed significantly more severe deformity than the idiopathic group in the radiographic and 3D sagittal talus measurements. The 3D coronal talus measurement showed a significant negative correlation with the axial hindfoot alignment in the idiopathic group while the 3D transverse talus measurement was significantly correlated with the lateral talocalcaneal angle in the neuromuscular group. 3D intraosseous alignment of the talus is correlated with pes planus deformity. Longitudinal and biomechanical studies including a control group are necessary to elucidate the role of 3D talar morphology on a dynamic imbalance in pes planovalgus.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate and characterize anterior chest wall (ACW) joint ’s enthesopathy on CT scans in patients with DISH compared with age- and gender-matched control group.Material and methodsRetrospective evaluation for enthesopathy features of ACW joints —sterno-clavicular (SCJ), manubrio-sternal (MSJ), costo-sternal 1–7 (CSJ)—on chest CT scans of subjects with DISH (Resnick criteria) and of age- and gender-matched control subjects was performed. 183 subjects (DISH: 92, control: 91); male:female: 126:57, average age: 71.7 years (range 50–94 ) were evaluated. Total enthesopathy sco...

ConclusionSternal wire complications secondary to migration beyond the sternum are rare but potentially fatal. Precise wire location and risk assessment with CT are more appropriate when wire location cannot be clearly delineated by plain film radiography.

n E Abstract The role of the patella is paramount in the transmission of the quadriceps muscle forces, the increase of the lever arm, the distribution of the forces on the trochlea and the centring of the extensor apparatus. Despite the low incidence of patellar factures in comparison with other lower limb fractures, the painful and functional complications, such as knee stiffness, loss of extension and patellofemoral osteoarthritis, can be very disabling and will often compromise the return to a professional or recreational activity and induce falls in the elderly population. Treatment can be conservative or surg...

The aim of the study was to determine any discrepancies among preoperative full-leg standing radiographs (LLR) and supine non-weight-bearing computed tomography (CT)-scan-based three-dimensional (3D) models in the assessment of the lower limb alignment prior to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and answer the question of whether the LLR study can be obviated in preoperative planning when TKA is performed with patient-specific instrumentation (PSI).

ConclusionsAlthough nano-CT has many disadvantages, it enabled the 3D anatomical study of the FMMs in relation to the NLF when combined with iodine staining. We imported the 2D images obtained by nano-CT scanning into the Mimics software, successfully reconstructed the FMMs, and finally obtained images of complex 3D structures of the FMMs. The shapes, positions, and 3D spatial relationships of the FMMs were clearly visualized. The novel insights into the 3D anatomy of the FMMs may help understand the formation of the NLF. Finally, the results of this study may help improve the rejuvenation surgery of the NLF soon.Level of ...

Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) is a general term that implies the use of a computer to model intelligent behavior with minimal human intervention. AI, particularly deep learning, has recently made substantial strides in perception tasks allowing machines to better represent and interpret complex data. Deep learning is a subset of AI represented by the combination of artificial neuron layers. In the last years, deep learning has gained great momentum. In the field of orthopaedics and traumatology, some studies have been done using deep learning to detect fractures in radiographs. Deep learning studies to det...

Chest radiography and computed tomography revealed that the patency capsule was located within the bronchus intermedius. It was successfully removed by flexible bronchoscopy. The balloon was placed over the capsule and inflated. Subsequently, the catheter was pulled, while thus dragging the capsule with it and...

Materials and Methods: Forty implants inserted into bovine rib blocks were used. Thirty had standardized bone defects (10 each of angular, fenestration, and dehiscence defects), and 10 were defect-free controls. CBCT, PPA, and OPA images of the samples were acquired. The images were evaluated twice by each of ...
