Assessment of hindfoot deformity by three-dimensional MRI in infant club foot. (1/339)

In 12 infants aged under 16 months with unilateral club foot we used MRI in association with multiplanar reconstruction to calculate the volume and principal axes of inertia of the bone and cartilaginous structures of the hindfoot. The volume of these structures in the club foot is about 20% smaller than that in the normal foot. The reduction in volume of the ossification centre of the talus (40%) is greater than that of the calcaneus (20%). The long axes of both the ossification centre and the cartilaginous anlage of the calcaneus are identical in normal and club feet. The long axis of the osseous nucleus of the talus of normal and club feet is medially rotated relative to the cartilaginous anlage, but the angle is greater in club feet (10 degrees v 14 degrees). The cartilaginous structure of the calcaneus is significantly medially rotated in club feet (15 degrees) relative to the bimalleolar axis. The cartilaginous anlage of the talus is medially rotated in both normal and club feet, but with a smaller angle for club feet (28 degrees v 38 degrees). This objective technique of measurement of the deformity may be of value preoperatively.  (+info)

Intra-articular displaced fractures of the calcaneus. Operative vs non-operative treatment. (2/339)

Twenty-eight patients with displaced intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus treated by open reduction and fixation were compared with 30 patients with similar fractures treated conservatively. Judged by the clinical and radiographic criteria results were more satisfactory in the surgical group than in the nonoperative group, although high rates of poor results were encountered in both groups.  (+info)

Ultrasound study of heel to calcaneum depth in neonates. (3/339)

AIM: To investigate whether it would be safe to extend the currently recommended area of sampling to the whole heel in neonates. METHODS: Eighty newborn infants were studied, weight range 0.56 to 4.34 kg, gestation 24 to 42 weeks. Ultrasound scanning was used to measure the shortest distance between the skin and the perichondrium of the calcaneum. RESULTS: The shortest depth of perichondrium was in the centre of the heel and ranged from 3 to 8 mm. In 78 of the 80 infants the distance was 4 mm or more. There was a small but significant positive correlation with weight. CONCLUSIONS: Standard automated lancets for preterm use that puncture to a depth of 2.4 mm may be safely used anywhere over the plantar surface of the heel. The posterior aspect of the heel should be avoided. Reducing the density of heel pricks should reduce the associated pain.  (+info)

Impact of peripheral neuropathy on bone density in patients with type 1 diabetes. (4/339)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether peripheral neuropathy (PN), as part of the microangiopathic complex, affects bone mineral density (BMD) of the peripheral or the axial skeleton in patients with type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Three study groups were examined. Group 1 comprised 21 males with type 1 diabetes and severe PN with a mean (range) duration of diabetes of 28 (9-59) years and an HbA1c of 8.2% (6.3-10.4). Group 2 comprised 21 male type 1 diabetic patients with absent or mild PN matched to patients of group 1 regarding age, weight, and duration of diabetes. Group 3 comprised 21 control subjects. BMD was measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and by quantitative ultrasound of the calcaneus. PN was determined by biothesiometry. Levels of physical activity were assessed through guided questionnaires. RESULTS: In group 1, BMD was significantly reduced at all measured sites, compared with an expected Z score of 0 (spine, -1.01 +/- 0.34; femur, -0.94 +/- 0.25; forearm, -1.10 +/- 0.36). To a lesser extent, but still significantly, group 2 also showed reduced BMD values (spine, -0.60 +/- 0.26; femur, -0.55 +/- 0.25; forearm, -1.05 +/- 0.36), whereas group 3 had normal BMD values (-0.23 +/- 0.25, -0.10 +/- 0.21, -0.07 +/- 0.25, respectively). Group 1 had lower mean BMD levels than group 2 and group 3 at all measured sites, but a significant difference was found only between groups 1 and 3 at the site of the femur (analysis of variance, P < 0.05). Broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) of the calcaneus was significantly reduced in group 1 compared with groups 2 and 3 (108 +/- 3 vs. 115 +/- 2 and 115 +/- 2). Significant correlations between all DEXA measurements and BUA were demonstrated in both groups 1 and 2 (r values between 0.54 and 0.75). No significant differences in physical activity levels or body composition were demonstrated between the two patient groups. CONCLUSIONS: The present results suggest that in patients with type 1 diabetes, PN may be an independent risk factor for reduced BMD in the affected limbs as well as in the skeleton in general.  (+info)

Comparison of quantitative ultrasound in the human calcaneus with mechanical failure loads of the hip and spine. (5/339)

OBJECTIVE: Quantitative ultrasound of the calcaneus is used clinically for evaluating bone fracture risk, but its association with the mechanical properties at other skeletal sites is not well characterized. The objective was therefore to determine its predictive ability of the mechanical failure loads of the proximal femur and lumbar spine. METHOD: In 45 human cadavers (29 males and 16 females, aged 82.5 +/- 9.6 years), we determined the speed of sound, broadband ultrasonic attenuation (BUA) and the empirical stiffness index, using a commercial quantitative ultrasound scanner. The proximal femora and the fourth vertebral body were excised and loaded to failure in a testing machine. RESULTS: Femoral failure loads ranged from 933 to 7000 N and those of the vertebrae from 1000 to 7867 N, their correlation being 0.51 in females and -0.08 in males. Forty percent of the variability of femoral, but only 24% of the variability of the vertebral fracture loads could be predicted with calcaneal speed of sound. In the femur, a combination of speed of sound and BUA improved the prediction (r2 = 50-60%), but not in the spine. CONCLUSIONS: The study provides experimental evidence that calcaneal quantitative ultrasound is capable of predicting mechanical failure at other skeletal sites and has potential to identify patients at risk from osteoporotic fracture. The different association of quantitative ultrasound with femoral and vertebral failure may result from the influence of the cortical bone and a higher microstructure-related similarity of the calcaneus and the femur.  (+info)

Total dislocations of the navicular: are they ever isolated injuries? (6/339)

Isolated dislocations of the navicular are rare injuries; we present our experience of six cases in which the navicular was dislocated without fracture. All patients had complex injuries, with considerable disruption of the midfoot. Five patients had open reduction and stabilisation with Kirschner wires. One developed subluxation and deformity of the midfoot because of inadequate stabilisation of the lateral column, and there was one patient with ischaemic necrosis. We believe that the navicular cannot dislocate in isolation because of the rigid bony supports around it; there has to be significant disruption of both longitudinal columns of the foot. Most commonly, an abduction/pronation injury causes a midtarsal dislocation, and on spontaneous reduction the navicular may dislocate medially. This mechanism is similar to a perilunate dislocation. Stabilisation of both medial and lateral columns of the foot may sometimes be essential for isolated dislocations. In spite of our low incidence of ischaemic necrosis, there is always a likelihood of this complication.  (+info)

Fibrous dysplasia arising from the calcaneus. (7/339)

A case of an 18-year-old woman with fibrous dysplasia arising in the calcaneus, which is extremely rare, is reported, with the emphasis placed on differential diagnosis from low-grade central osteosarcoma. She had a severe pain in her left ankle after sprain. Plain radiographs showed a radiolucent lesion measuring 6.3 x 2.5 cm with a sclerotic margin in the left calcaneus. CT scans showed a well-defined lytic lesion with disruption of the lateral cortex and an ossification or calcification in its center. On MR imaging, the lesion had isointensities and high intensities on T1 and T2 weighted images, respectively, but its central portions showed lower intensities both on T1 and T2 weighted images. The lesion was enhanced with gadolinium except for the central portions. The specimen obtained by open biopsy consisted of fibrous tissue and foci of irregular woven bone. None of the nuclear atypia, mitoses, longitudinal stream of bone or invasive nature of growth was detected. The diagnosis of fibrous dysplasia was histologically made. The lesion was curetted and packed with autogenous bone chips. No evidence of recurrence was noted postoperatively.  (+info)

Elderly cohort study subjects unable to return for follow-up have lower bone mass than those who can return. (8/339)

Longitudinal studies of osteoporosis in older persons may underestimate bone loss because of a lack of follow-up measurements on subjects too frail to return. The authors addressed this possible bias as part of the population-based Framingham Study; in 1996-1997, they used quantitative ultrasound to assess the bone status of elderly subjects regardless of their ability to return to the clinic. Broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) and speed of sound of the calcaneus (heel) were measured in 433 subjects at the Framingham, Massachusetts, clinic and in 167 subjects at their homes or nursing homes. All ultrasound parameters were measured with intramachine coefficients of variation of <6.0%. The mean BUA for those subjects evaluated at the clinic was higher than for those measured at home (9.2% higher for men, p = 0.081; 8.6% higher for women, p = 0.034). After adjustment for age and weight, the differences in BUA were no longer significant. Among the elderly subjects participating in this longitudinal cohort study, those who were unable to return for follow-up were older, weighed less, and had a lower BUA than those who did return, suggesting that longitudinal studies of changes in bone mass with aging may underestimate the true population values.  (+info)

1. We have examined the relationship between the attenuation of broadband ultrasound in the os calcis in vitro and its bone mineral density measured by quantitative computed tomography and by physical density.. 2. Broadband ultrasound attenuation was found to correlate closely with physical density (r = 0.85, P , 0.0001), but the correlation was less than that observed between quantitative computed tomography and physical density (r = 0.92, P , 0.0001). Measurements of broadband ultrasound attenuation and quantitative computed tomography were significantly correlated (r = 0.80, P , 0.0001).. 3. Partial correlation analysis showed a significant relationship between broadband ultrasound attenuation and bone density, but when the effect of physical density was taken into account no significant correlation was found between broadband ultrasound attenuation and quantitative computed tomography (r = 0.08, not significant).. 4. Broadband ultrasound attenuation in three prospective amputees showed a ...

BACKGROUND: During pregnancy, mineralization of the fetal skeleton and obligate urinary losses require adaptation of maternal calcium homeostasis, such as increased intestinal calcium absorption and bone resorption. However, the environmental determinants of maternal bone resorption during pregnancy in healthy adult mothers have not been previously described. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We conducted a population-based longitudinal study of 307 term pregnancies using a cohort of 307 pregnant women living in Southampton, United Kingdom. During early and late pregnancy, skeletal status was measured at the left calcaneus using quantitative ultrasound (QUS). RESULTS: There was a significant (P | 0.001) decline in both speed of sound and broadband ultrasound attenuation during pregnancy. Those women who were pregnant for the first time (P = 0.001), had low milk intake prepregnancy (P = 0.01), and reduced measures of fat mass (P = 0.01) showed the greatest decline in calcaneal bone measurements. Furthermore, those
High plasma homocysteine (Hcy) levels are associated with increased osteoporotic fracture incidence. However, the mechanism remains unclear. We investigated the effect of Hcy-lowering vitamin B,inf,12,/inf, and folic acid treatment on bone mineral density (BMD) and calcaneal quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameters. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial included participants aged ≥65 years with plasma Hcy levels between 12 and 50 µmol/L. The intervention comprised 2-year supplementation with either a combination of 500 µg B,inf,12,/inf,, 400 µg folic acid, and 600 IU vitamin D or placebo with 600 IU vitamin D only. In total, 1111 participants underwent repeated dual-energy X-ray assessment and 1165 participants underwent QUS. Femoral neck (FN) BMD, lumbar spine (LS) BMD, calcaneal broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA), and calcaneal speed of sound (SOS) were assessed. After 2 years, FN-BMD and BUA had significantly decreased, while LS-BMD significantly increased (all p , ...

For decades, open reduction and internal fixation was the surgical treatment of choice for intra-articular calcaneal fractures, either with or without any augmentation. Delayed weight bearing and wound-related complications are still unresolved. Aiming at a minimally invasive therapy with accelerated mobilization, we applied closed reduction and balloon-assisted augmentation with calcium phosphate cement. A 45-years-old Greek man with intra-articular calcaneal fracture was treated with closed reduction and balloon assisted augmentation with calcium phosphate cement. Follow-up was performed using the Maryland foot score, plain radiographs and multidirectional computerized tomography. Early full weight-bearing was performed at the end of the first week postoperatively. There was no need for secondary reconstructive procedures at the 2 year follow-up. The patient had minimal problems regarding the pain, subtalar motion and peroneal impingement. There was no significant further collapse of the subtalar
Patients on long-term oral corticosteroids have an increased risk of low bone mass and fragility fractures. Fracture risk rises soon after commencement of corticosteroid therapy and it is possible that these agents adversely influence bone architecture disproportionately to their effect on bone mass. The best means of assessing bone status in patients using corticosteroids remains uncertain, but quantitative ultrasound of the calcaneus may provide evidence of microarchitectural changes not detected by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Patients with Crohns disease have an increased risk of low bone mineral density (BMD), the etiology of which is multifactorial but includes corticosteroid use. We studied 118 consecutive patients with Crohns disease, 21 of whom used continuous oral corticosteroids, 70 of whom were intermittent users, and 27 who had never used the drug. All patients received DXA of the lumbar spine, hip and calcaneus and quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of the calcaneus. The different

Prior to radiographic assessment, one needs to be familiar with the normal ossification centers and accessory bones in the pediatric foot. The initial workup for a suspected calcaneus fracture involves anterior posterior (AP), lateral and an axial view. The AP view allows assessment of the talonavicular and the calcaneocuboid joints. The posterior facet can be seen on the lateral and Bohlers angle is measured on this view. Bohlers angle is the angle between a line drawn between the highest points of the anterior and posterior facets and a line drawn tangential to the highest point on the calcaneal tuberosity. The normal value in adults is between 20 and 40 degrees. It is typically less in children ...
The goal of surgery for a calcaneus fracture (broken heel) is to restore the shape of the heel bone as close to normal as possible.
The calcaneus is the most frequently fractured tarsal bone, with calcaneal fractures accounting for 65% of all tarsal injuries and approximately 2% of all fractures. [1] Most of these fractures occur in male industrial workers and lead to significant economic impact because of long-term disability. [1] Even though recent studies have shown better results with surgical treatment [2-5] and less invasive stabilization systems [3-5], the treatment of calcaneal fractures remains controversial because of the suboptimal results of treatment and the incidence of complications associated with both conservative and surgical methods. [6-9]. On reviewing the literature for the treatment of symptomatic, malunited calcaneal fractures, the general consensus suggests that resection of impinging bone with isolated subtalar arthrodesis for subtalar joint arthritis yields the best long term results. [10-23] Moreover, some surgeons also do endoscopic calcaneal ostectomies for calcaneofibular impingement with good ...
Results-In 14 290 participants (mean follow-up of 9.3 years; total person-years 132 574), there were 599 incident strokes. Participants in the lowest 10% of the calcaneum broadband ultrasound attenuation distribution had an increased stroke risk (hazard ratio 1.41; 95% confidence intervals, 1.02-1.94) compared with those in the top 30% of the distribution after adjustments. A decrease of ~1 standard deviation in broadband ultrasound attenuation (20 db/MHz) was associated with a 17% increase in relative risk of stroke (95% confidence intervals, 5%-30%). Meta-analysis of 4 studies (25 760 participants, 1237 cases of stroke) found that for every decrease in 1 standard deviation in bone mineral density, there was an increased risk of incident stroke among women (pooled relative risk 1.22; 95% confidence intervals, 1.09-1.37; I2=0%, 3 studies) but not in men (pooled relative risk 1.05; 95% confidence intervals, 0.94-1.17; I2=0%, 2 studies).. ...

RUNX2 is an essential transcription factor required for skeletal development and cartilage formation. Haploinsufficiency of RUNX2 leads to cleidocranial displaysia (CCD) a skeletal disorder characterised by gross dysgenesis of bones particularly those derived from intramembranous bone formation. A notable feature of the RUNX2 protein is the polyglutamine and polyalanine (23Q/17A) domain coded by a repeat sequence. Since none of the known mutations causing CCD characterised to date map in the glutamine repeat region, we hypothesised that Q-repeat mutations may be related to a more subtle bone phenotype. We screened subjects derived from four normal populations for Q-repeat variants. A total of 22 subjects were identified who were heterozygous for a wild type allele and a Q-repeat variant allele: (15Q, 16Q, 18Q and 30Q). Although not every subject had data for all measures, Q-repeat variants had a significant deficit in BMD with an average decrease of 0.7SD measured over 12 BMD-related parameters ...

Background and purpose A retrocalcaneal bursitis is caused by repetitive impingement of the bursa between the Achilles tendon and the posterosuperior calcaneus. The bursa is situated in the posteroinferior corner of Kagers triangle (retrocalcaneal recess), which is a radiolucency with sharp borders on the lateral radiograph of the ankle. If there is inflammation, the fluid-filled bursa is less radiolucent, making it difficult to delineate the retrocalcaneal recess. We assessed whether the radiographic appearance of the retrocalcaneal recess on plain digital (filmless) radiographs could be used in the diagnosis of a retrocalcaneal bursitis. Methods Whether or not there was obliteration of the retrocalcaneal recess (yes/no) on 74 digital weight-bearing lateral radiographs of the ankle was independently assessed by 2 observers. The radiographs were from 24 patients (25 heels) with retrocalcaneal bursitis (confirmed on endoscopic calcaneoplasty); the control group consisted of 50 patients (59 ...
Background/Purpose:. Axial spondyloarthropathy (axSpA) patients have an increased risk of developing osteoporosis compared to matched controls. Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the technique of choice to detect low bone mineral density (BMD). Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of the calcaneus measures 3 parameters of bone: speed of sound (SOS), broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) and stiffness index (SI; composite of SOS and BUA) and can predict fragility fractures in postmenopausal women. QUS is cheap, portable and does not use any ionising radiation. It also provides information on bone microarchitecture, as well as bone mineral density (BMD). Few studies have investigated the use of QUS in axSpA. We aimed to investigate relationships between DXA and QUS in a well characterised axSpA cohort. Methods:. Patients fulfilling modified New York (mNY) or Assessment of Spondyloarthritis International Society (ASAS) criteria were consecutively recruited from rheumatology clinics in this ...

On the market there is a wide selection of safety shoes, and at first sight they all look similar. Safety shoes against retrocalcaneal bursitis
Retrocalcaneal bursitis most commonly occurs as s result of repetitive activity that encourages the calf muscles to tighten and shorten from overuse, like repetitively wearing high heels, running and even wearing tight shoes that pinch at the back of the heel. Symptoms normally include a constant dull ache or burning pain at the back of the heel that is aggravated by any touch or pressure from tight shoes or movement of the ankle joint. There will normally be noticeable swelling around the back of the heel. In cases of bursitis caused by infection the skin around the affected joint will appear red and will feel incredibly warm to the touch. Additional symptoms are a high temperature and feverish chills. Retrocalcaneal bursitis is very similar to Achilles bursitis as the bursae are very close in proximity and symptoms are almost identical however retrocalcaneal bursitis is a lot more common ...
Perfect foot structure isnt needed to walk comfortably, yet our clients do require good functional movement in several key joints to lessen wear and tear and reduce damaging knee, hip and low back compensations. Correcting these problems can be as simple as manually balancing the foot to allow increased motion in a single fixated area such as the talocalcaneal or subtalar joint (Fig 1). My mentor, the late Dr. Philip Greenman used to say: The subtalar is the bodys steering wheel and the most important joint you didnt know you had. Located just below the ankle, where the calcaneus (heel bone) and the talus (ankle bone) meet, it primarily does only two things…roll in and roll out (Fig. 2). Pain from plantar fasciitis and medial shin splints often have roots in a dysfunctional talocalcaneal articulation where the talus has glided forward on calcaneus and become fixated there. ...
Retrocalcaneal bursitis is the painful inflammation and swelling of the retrocalcaneal bursa that is situated between the calcaneus (heel bone) and the Achilles tendon. A bursa is a small fluid filled sac that forms around joints in areas where there is a lot of friction between muscles, tendons and outcrops of bone. The bursae position themselves in between the tendon or muscle and the bone, buffering any friction from movement. To picture a bursa imagine it as a very small water filled balloon that sits in places where things rub against each other, such as in between a tendon and a bone, to provide a soft smooth cushion for the tendon to pass over painlessly. The covering of the bursa also acts as a lubricant and aids the tendon?s movement. It is estimated that there is over 150 bursae in your body which protect the joint and tendons from wear. They are all very small and unnoticeable until they become swollen and painful with bursitis ...

N2 - The speed of sound (SOS) has become a useful tool in osteoporosis assessment, since it represents a combination of density and compressibility of bone tissue and should provide better information on bone quality and an estimate the fracture risk. In general, the speed of sound on dispersive material, such as bone tissue, depends strongly on frequency. Therefore, a measurement of velocity dispersion magnitude (VDM) might provide more important bone structure information than measurements of bone mineral density (BMD), ...

Reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and subsequent osteoporosis is a major public health problem affecting millions of people, especially elderly and postmenopausal women worldwide. Although the key role of a healthy lifestyle on chronic diseases has been established, the importance of these characteristics along with other factors influencing BMD is still controversial. Further, previous studies addressing this issue in postmenopausal Malaysian women are very limited. This study aimed to determine the lifestyle habits that may affect BMD in postmenopausal Malaysian women. In a cross-sectional study, a total of 201 healthy postmenopausal women were interviewed to obtain information on their socio-demographic, reproductive, and lifestyle status. Calcaneal BMD was measured by quantitative ultra sonography (QUS) and was expressed in broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) as well as T-score. Food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) was used for calcium intake evaluation and visual analog scale (VAS) was ...

An avulsion fracture occurs when a small segment of bone attached to a tendon or ligament gets pulled away from the main bone. The hip, elbow and ankle are the most common locations for lower limb avulsion fractures in the young sportsperson.. Treatment of an avulsion fracture typically includes active rest, ice and protecting the affected area. This active rest period is followed by controlled exercises that help restore range of motion, improve muscle strength and promote bone healing. Your physiotherapist should supervise your post-avulsion exercises. Most avulsion fractures heal very well. You may need to spend a few weeks on crutches if you have an avulsion fracture around your hip. An avulsion fracture to your foot or ankle may require a cast or walking boot.. An excessive gap between the avulsed bone fragment and main bone may not rejoin naturally in rare cases. Surgery may be necessary to reunite them. In children, avulsion fractures that involve the growth plates also might require ...
Many cases of retrocalcaneal and retroachilles bursitis can be treated at home by wearing comfortable shoes, following the R.I.C.E. treatment protocol, and using over-counter NSAIDs.
Calcaneal fractures are uncommon, compromising 1-2% of all fractures and representing 60% of all tarsal fractures. Annual incidence is 11.5 per 100 000 and its more common in men. The most usual mechanisam is axial loading of the foot caused from a fall. The fracture can be divided into two groups; intraarticular and extraarticular. Clinicly its presented with severe pain, swelling, haematoma, deformity of the foot and inability to walk. Also weight-bearing of the foot is not possible. Ecchymosis around the heel are usually a sure sign of a calcaneal fracture. We can also find blisters which are resault of a severe trauma of the soft tissue and massive swelling. Anamnesis usually shows an information about a fall or a car accident, but if its not present then we need to see if the person has DM or osteporosis, because it can be a stress fracture. The initial radiographic evaluation of the patient with a suspected calcaneus fracture should include a lateral, an anteroposterior (AP) and Harris ...
Three hundred people were enrolled for a cross sectional study during 3rd week of June, 2014, from Out Patients Departments of Rawal Institute of Health Sciences, Islamabad. Informed consent was taken. Study sample included patients, attendants and hospital staff. Sample size was calculated by using WHO sample size calculator with confidence level 95%, absolute precision 0.05 and P=95%. All of these were enquired about their bio-data, BMI, daily milk intake, daily sun exposure, frequent carbonated drink use, smoking habit, parity and in case of females, if they were bound to homes most of the times or not. Their calcaneus bone mineral density was measured by using Sonost 3000-Ultrasound Bone Densitometer. T score was calculated and categorized into normal, osteopaeniac and osteoporotic according to WHO guidelines.11 By using SPSS version 20, frequencies and percentages were calculated for categorical variables and mean and standard deviations were calculated for numerical data.

Intraosseous lipoma of the calcaneum has a classical appearance. It usually occurs at the critical angle of the calcaneum, which is an area of increased porosity that is physiological. Compared to intraosseous lipomas at other sites, calcaneal lipomas show a greater prevalence of marginal sclerosis (61%) and internal calcification (62%), and rarely cause bone expansion.(2) Calcification within a lucent lesion at the critical angle of the calcaneum, which is pathognomonic of intraosseous lipoma, helps to differentiate it from unicameral bone cysts.(1). Differentiating intraosseous lipoma from osteonecrosis on CT and MR imaging may be difficult at times, as they both contain fat and are separated from the surrounding marrow by a rim of tissue.(1) Distinguishing features of intraosseous lipoma include resorption of bone trabeculae, a rounded (rather than serpentine) margin and expansile remodelling.(1,6) Radiographically, intraosseous lipoma may be mistaken for fibrous dysplasia. However, fibrous ...

The CUBAClinical is a patented dry Ultrasonic Bone Sonometry System. By placing the calcaneus (heel bone) between two directly contacting Ultrasonic Transducers, rapid measurements of Broadband Ultrasonic Attenuation (BUA) are obtained. The calcaneus is a bone site of proven sensitivity to osteoporotic change. The CUBAClinical takes an ultrasound measurement through the patient s heel. The patient is seated with the foot accurately positioned into the footwell, using the correct positioning insert. The foot and lower part of the leg are secured using two Velcro straps. Ultrasound gel is applied to the face of the silicone pads and to the sides of the heel to provide acoustic coupling. The silicone pads are brought into contact with each side of the patient s heel by means of a motorized mechanism. Inaudible sound waves are transmitted from one of the transducers through the heel and received by the other transducer. Quantitative parameters describing the attenuation in the heel are ...

Have you ever seen a rhinoceros? A photograph will do, although seeing one in person is, of course, a much more visceral experience. Anyway, you have the picture of a rhinoceros in your mind, right? Beady eyes, leathery skin and, most importantly, that enormous horn right at the end of its nose? Great.. Now, imagine that this rhinoceros has somehow gotten inside your foot. (Okay, its a test of the imagination, but try anyway. It might help if you imagine a very small rhinoceros.) Its round rump is hanging out near your toes, and its facing the back of your foot, with its horn pushing out at your heel, right about where your Achilles tendon attaches to the calcaneus (your heel bone). Now, imagine what it would feel like to have that rhino horn pushing from inside your heel every time you put on a pair of shoes with a nice, stiff back. Not exactly comfortable, right?. Well, the calcaneus isnt really much like a rhinoceros. It lacks the irritable nature, for one. But it can have a bony ...

In what follows, I will be assuming that you are a person who wants to see Bernie Sanders elected President of the United States. If this is not something you want, this discussion will be of little value.. The task itself is clear and has two parts: At the Democratic convention in July of 2020, Bernie Sanders needs to be the nominated as the partys candidate for president. Then, on November 3, 2020, Bernie Sanders needs to receive 270 electoral votes. Personally, I think Part II will be easier than Part I, because in Part II Bernie Sanders has the luxury of running against a cartoon of an evil billionaire. This will play to his strengths. I think watching a debate between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump will be an immensely satisfying experience, and that the people of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin will be moved by Bernies comprehensive agenda for dealing with their day-to-day problems. I believe they will reject Donald Trump, because Donald Trump offers nothing but bigotry ...

Kiel DP, Demissie S, Dupuis J, Lunetta KL, Murabito JM and Karasik D. Hebrew SeniorLife Institute for Aging Research and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA. [email protected] Background: Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mass and compromised bone structure, heritable traits that contribute to fracture risk. There have been no genome-wide association and linkage studies for these traits using high-density genotyping platforms.. Methods: We used the Affymetrix 100K SNP GeneChip marker set in the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) to examine genetic associations with ten primary quantitative traits: bone mineral density (BMD), calcaneal ultrasound, and geometric indices of the hip. To test associations with multivariable-adjusted residual trait values, we used additive generalized estimating equation (GEE) and family-based association tests (FBAT) models within each sex as well as sexes combined. We evaluated 70,987 autosomal SNPs with genotypic call rates , or =80%, HWE p , or = 0.001, ...

With each and every step your feet absorb several times its own body weight resulting in heel pain and causing pain in the sole of the foot. The plantar fascia runs from the calcaneus (heel bone) to the under-surface of the toes and as you run the arch of the foot drops helping to preserve energy and dissipate the associated forces. This repeated action can cause inflammation of the plantar fascia usually at the point where it attaches to the heel bone, restricting the movement of the foot. Using the Aircast Plantar Fasciitis AirHeel will help to reduce swelling, discomfort and enhance circulation with every step..

In recent years, there has been growing interest in the association between the residential environment and health. The association between residential environment (i.e., geographic elevation) and bone status is unknown. Furthermore, these associations could differ by exercise habits due to the chronically greater daily activity caused by steep slopes in mountainous areas. The aim of this study was to test whether the association between bone status of elderly people measured using quantitative ultrasound (QUS) and elevation varied according to the exercise habits in a mountainous area population. Data were collected from a cross-sectional study conducted during 2012-2013. QUS value was expressed as a proportion of the young adult mean (%YAM), with higher scores donating better bone status. After excluding subjects with missing data, we analyzed the data for 321 men and 500 women. Our results indicate that %YAM was not associated with elevation among men, or among women with exercise habits. However,
