• The enthesis is the transitional zone where collagenous structures such as tendons and ligaments are interwoven into bone. (medscape.com)
  • In general, fractures of the distal radius are treated non-operatively if the bone fragments can be held in anatomical alignment by a plaster cast or orthotic. (nihr.ac.uk)
  • The intervertebral joints are this type, and many of the small bones of the wrist and ankle also meet in gliding joints. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • These metaplastic transformations result in new bone formation (periostitis), gradual ossification of syndesmoses (eg, the sacroiliac joints), and syndesmophyte formation along the outer fibers of the vertebral discs. (medscape.com)
  • Comparison of bone mineral density changes around short, metaphyseal-fitting, and conventional cementless anatomical femoral components. (naver.com)
  • the denser the tissue, (bone versus fat) less x-ray passes through it and this difference in body tissue density is why bone (high body tissue density) is white on a radiograph, compared to fat (low body tissue density) which is gray, or air (no density) which is black. (hss.edu)
  • This involves cutting or rebreaking the bone, realigning it, and repairing it with a rod down the middle or with a plate and screws. (healthline.com)
  • This process involves cutting or re-breaking the affected bone, realigning it, and then using modes to repair it with the help of a rod that is placed in the middle or with using a plate and screws. (tophealthjournal.com)
  • Additional complications from the hip replacement system may include increased metal ion levels in the blood, bone staining, necrosis, swelling, nerve damage, tissue damage and/or muscle damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tarsal coalitions are the result of impaired mesenchymal separation of the tarsal bones. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Does knee malalignment increase the risk of development and progression of knee osteoarthritis? (nih.gov)
  • Given the paucity of investigation into the relationship between knee malalignment and risk of incident OA, further high-quality cohort studies are needed, and these may have important implications for the prevention of knee OA. (nih.gov)
  • In this technique the entire defect area including the underlying bone is replaced. (uky.edu)
  • Females less than 17 years and males less than 18 years of age treated at our institution between January 2005 and January 2008 with complete both-bone shaft fractures were screened for inclusion. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Failure of modeling may also be seen in the short tubular bones, with widening of the medial ends of the clavicles, sternal ends of the ribs and pubic bones. (appliedradiology.com)
  • We found limited evidence for an association between knee malalignment and incident knee OA, because only 1 cohort study examined this relationship. (nih.gov)
  • As a result of inflammation at these interfaces, the radially oriented collagen fibers undergo metaplasia, forming fibrous bone. (medscape.com)
