What Are Potential Problems of Congenital Lung Malformations?
Discussion Congenital lung malformations (CLM) are commonly identified with prenatal ultrasound and occur in ~1:2400 live births. The natural history shows that lesions may remain the same, enlarge or appear to disappear. There is a wide-range of clinical manifestations. Patients may be asymptomatic or symptomatic at birth and often develop symptoms later. The overall natural history is difficult to ascertain as there are fewer studies done in older children and adults. Those that are done often lack a good denominator by which to judge the incidence or prevalence. Resection is carried out usually if a patient is symptomat...

How Common Are Bone Spurs in Young Athletes?
Discussion The terminology of abnormal calcification of soft tissues and uses of the terms is often muddied. Especially as the causes may be similar and multiple adjacent tissues may be involved. An exostosis is an abnormal proliferation of bone from the joint. They can appear in various forms and in many locations. An osteophyte is also known as a bone spur and is type of exostosis. Osteophytes are thought to be periosteal or synovial mesenchymal stems cells that become calcified. They usually have a more narrow or pointed projection from the joint. Osteophytes are a very common feature of osteoarthritis. Enthesophytes a...
