ConclusionAlthough rare, osteoid osteoma may occur in the hallux. Even if the patient age, pain pattern, and radiographic findings do not exactly meet the classical definitions for osteoid osteoma, this tumor should always be included in the differential diagnosis list in patients presenting with foot pain.

This study evaluates the safety of GAE for the treatment of symptomatic knee OA.
Genicular artery embolization (GAE) is a promising technique to reduce symptoms of pain from knee osteoarthritis (OA), primarily by reducing synovial inflammation. In a prospective trial of GAE, MRI was compared with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for synovial thickening and enhancement, both of which are imaging features of clinical synovitis.
To systematically review published literature on geniculate artery embolization (GAE) for osteoarthritis (OA) related knee pain.
Genicular artery embolization (GAE) has been proposed as a novel technique to treat painful synovitis related to osteoarthritis (OA). An in-depth understanding of the genicular anatomy is crucial to achieve technical success and avoid non-target related complications. Given the lack of previous angiographic description, we report our analysis of genicular artery anatomy and propose an angiographic classification system.
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a major cause of pain and disability with estimated prevalence of>20% in the elderly. Treating patients with intermediate disease severity is a challenge due to poor response to conservative treatment. Surgery is not warranted in them due to absence of severe deformity. This pain is postulated to be related to osteochondral neoangiogenesis with low-grade inflammation. The feasibility, safety and efficacy of genicular artery embolization for relief of symptoms in this subgroup was studied
To determine if genicular artery embolization (GAE) is more effective than a sham procedure in reducing pain and disability secondary to knee osteoarthritis (OA).
Imipenem –cilastatin (IPM-CS) is used as an embolic material in embolization for osteoarthritis; however, in vivo characteristics of IPM-CS have not been rigorously assessed. The purpose of this study was to elucidate in vivo temporal characteristics of IPM-CS particles as an embolic agent using rat renal arteries.
