Percutaneous osteoplasty for the treatment of a painful osteochondral lesion of the talus: a case report and literature review. (5/11)

An osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) is a lesion involving the talar articular cartilage and its subchondral bone. OLT is a known cause of chronic ankle pain after ankle sprains in the active population. The lesion causes deep ankle pain associated with weight-bearing, impaired function, limited range of motion, stiffness, catching, locking, and swelling. There are 2 common patterns of OLTs. Anterolateral talar dome lesions result from inversion and dorsiflexion injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the fibula. Posteromedial lesions result from inversion, plantar flexion, and external rotation injuries of the ankle at the area impacting against the tibial ceiling of the ankle joint. Early diagnosis of an OLT is particularly important because the tibiotalar joint is exposed to more compressive load per unit area than any other joint in the body. Failure of diagnosis can lead to the evolution of a small, stable lesion into a larger lesion or an unstable fragment, which can result in chronic pain, joint instability, and premature osteoarthritis. A 43-year-old man, with a history of ankle sprain one year previously, visited our pain clinic for continuous right ankle pain after walking or standing for more than 30 minutes. There was a focal tenderness on the posteromedial area of the right talus. Imaging studies revealed a posteromedial OLT classified as having a geode form according to the FOG (fractures, osteonecroses, geodes) radiological classification and categorized as a stage 2a lesion on magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was scheduled for aspiration and osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite under arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance. A 26-gauge needle was inserted to infiltrate local anesthetics into the skin over the cyst and ankle joint. An arthroscope was placed into the joint to approach the OLT. The arthroscopic view showed that there was no connection between the OLT and the cyst of the talus body. A 13-gauge bone biopsy needle was inserted into the cyst, and aspiration was performed. Aspirated fluid from the cyst was originally white and clear; however, it changed to a blood-tinged, reddish color due to mixing with the incisional blood. After aspiration, contrast medium was injected, and the shape of the spread was observed. Bone cement comprising hydroxyapatite was injected to fill the bone defect of the cyst. A 1.5 mL volume of cement was injected into the talus under vigilant fluoroscopic and arthroscopic monitoring to prevent its dissemination into the joint. There was no cement leakage into the vessels or articular space. Postoperative fluoroscopy and computed tomography images showed bone cement filling of the defect. In the present case, arthroscopic and fluoroscopic guidance was used for aspiration of an OLT and for performing percutaneous osteoplasty with hydroxyapatite for one defect; this treatment decreased pain upon weight bearing and enabled a return to work without any restrictions one week after the procedure. The purpose of this report was to highlight the presence of OLT in chronic ankle pain and to review its management strategies.  (+info)

Adult degenerative scoliosis can be a result of scoliosis from childhood. The curvature may increase during adulthood and become painful. Scoliosis that happens in childhood is usually idiopathic, meaning there is no known reason for it.Any part of the spine can be affected by scoliosis including the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar vertebrae. Most often the lumbar spine is affected. The vertebrae curve to one side and may rotate, which makes the waist, hips, or shoulders appear uneven.. The most common cause of adult degenerative scoliosis is from degeneration, known as wear and tear. Itusually occurs after the age of 40. In older women, it is often related to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the loss of calcium in the supporting bone. This makes the vertebrae weak. In adult degenerative scoliosis, the spine loses its structural stability and becomes unbalanced. This imbalance of the spine causes changes in the way the forces of the spine are directed. The larger the scoliotic curve becomes, the ...
Noticing some of the existing challenges of cementoplasty for palliation and consolidation of bone metastases, Dr. Deschamps developed a new percutaneous treatment approach for bone metastases located in the pelvis or proximal femur. He named the technique Fixation by Internal Cemented Screw (FISC), which aimed to improve resistance to torque and tension stresses caused by cement augmentation.. Dr. Deschamps originally developed this approach for bone metastases located in the proximal femur, which he demonstrated had better consolidation compared to cementoplasty alone. Based on these promising results, he expanded to consider pelvic indications. Dr. Deschamps then published a full review of the technique to describe the procedures steps as well as the different possible tracks and complications. In 2019, he published a study with the largest worldwide cohort of cancer patients who were treated by percutaneous FICS for pathological fracture pain palliation with a long-term follow up.. His ...
Spinal collapse treatment. Coloured frontal X-ray of the lumbar spine of a 56-year-old patient being treated for a collapsed spinal vertebra. Three spinal bones (vertebrae, square blocks) are seen here, with the vertebral processes protruding on either side. The vertebra at centre (the L2 vertebra) has been injected with an acrylic bone cement (dark blue) to prevent it from collapsing. This treatment is known as vertebroplasty, or cementoplasty. The collapse of a vertebra can be caused by conditions such as osteoporosis or bone cancer. In the case of bone cancer, cementoplasty also helps to relieve the severe pain caused by the cancer. - Stock Image M700/0176
The challenge for physicians is that anticoagulants used for PCI often increase the risk of bleeding, especially at femoral access points in the thigh. A multi-site study led by a Miller School cardiologist has provided the first clinical application of a unique drug system that consists of an anticoagulant which thins the blood, and a control agent which then quickly reverses the process after the intervention.. Mauricio G. Cohen, M.D., associate professor of medicine in the Cardiovascular Division, led the Phase IIa study which he calls an important milestone in the search for safer anticoagulants for patients undergoing procedures in the catheterization lab. The study results are published in the July 26 online issue of Circulation, a journal of the American Heart Association.. The study represented the first clinical application of REG1, a unique RNA drug system made up of an anticoagulant/blood thinner (RB006) and a control agent (RB007) to reverse anticoagulation.

Adult Degenerative Scoliosis - Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine. Many people think it only occurs in children, but adults can have scoliosis as well.
Introduction. Controlled oxygenated rewarming of cold stored livers by machine perfusion demonstrated a strong protective effect in preclinical studies. Here we report on the first clinical application of this new concept in a pilot series of 6 marginal donor grafts.. Methods. Between 03/2014 and 05/2014 six distally procured livers from DBD-donors, which had been rejected by other transplant centers were subjected to the controlled rewarming protocol before transplantation. Immediately after arrival in our transplant center the hepatic artery and portal vein were cannulated. Gentle rewarming of the graft was effectuated thereafter by pressure controlled oxygenated machine perfusion (MP) via portal vein and hepatic artery (Organ Assist, Groningen, NL) while gradually increasing perfusate temperature up to 20°C. Custodiol-N was used as preservation solution. Real-time biochemical analysis of perfusate parameters was carried out in constant time intervals during the controlled ...

Several signs of scoliosis in an adult are the same as those in an adolescent. Patients with scoliosis might notice that one shoulder appears to be higher than another. They might have an uneven waist and notice that their hips are not in line. One side of the body may show a prominence in the rib cage, and one shoulder blade may be more prominent than another. Scoliosis can make the torso tilt to one side and can even result in the legs seeming to be of unequal lengths.. Since scoliosis is a sideways curve, it is not usually obvious when viewing a patients profile. However, adults with scoliosis may lean forwards in order to try to stretch out the back, especially if a nerve in the spine is being pinched.. Patients with Adult Degenerative Scoliosis often experience back pain. The pain is usually located in the lower back (ie the lumbar region). In some cases, adults with scoliosis may also notice shooting pain in their legs.. While adult degenerative scoliosis may cause modest problems in many ...

Adult onset scoliosis is caused by degeneration of the vertebrae that begins with the disintegration of parts of the spinal discs (Garcia-Ramos et al., 2015; Oskouian &Shaffrey, 2006; Wong, Oh, & Gray, 2017). Uneven disk space then leads to loss of vertebral integrity so that the vertebrae become wedge shaped. The wedging in the vertebrae to one side of the spinal column leads to scoliosis. Osteoporosis also predisposes the vertebrae to asymmetrical disintegration and subsequent scoliosis. (Good, Auerback, OLeary & Schuler, 2011; Oskouian & Shaffrey). Adult degenerative scoliosis occurs most often in the lumbar spine; the lower five vertebrae of the spinal column (Wong et al.). One consequences of unequal vertebral height is spinal stenosis; the pinching of the nerves that exit the spinal cord. Another consequence is arthritis of the facet joints, the joints of the spine that guide rotation and flexion-extension spinal motions Lateral listhesis, a sideways translation of the vertebrae due to ...
This topic calls for first in human studies and Phase I/II clinical trials of targeted radionuclide therapy (TRT) for cancer using novel radiopharmaceuticals or TRT treatment strategies as described in the project goals below.. TRT enables personalized cancer treatment by combining the therapeutic effect of radiation therapy with the targeting capability of molecularly targeted agents, such as antibodies used for biologically targeted therapy or immunotherapy. In TRT, a cytotoxic dose of a radioactive isotope is attached to a tumor-targeting agent that binds to malignant tumor cells selectively. For instance, the ability of the antibody to bind only to a tumor-associated antigen ensures that the tumor gets a lethal dose of radiation, while normal tissue gets only a minimal dose. This minimizes toxicity to normal tissues and can increase therapeutic efficacy (therapeutic index).. The first clinical application of TRT was the treatment of thyroid cancer with radioactive iodine, and the field of ...

Related News. THE SPECIALIST: DR. SEAN MCCANCE ON ADULT DEGENERATIVE SCOLIOSIS. As co-director of orthopedic spine surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center, McCance diagnoses patients with spine disorders and spends much of his week in the operating room. In spine surgery for 13 years, McCance performs more than 250 operations annually.. WHOS AT RISK:. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that can lead to impingement and back pain. It is very common, though in most cases the curves are small enough that they produce no symptoms and go undiagnosed. Some studies have shown that as much as 5% of the population may have scoliosis, many of them with milder curves so they dont even know, says McCance. Adult degenerative scoliosis usually affects people in their 40s or 50s who start developing a curvature of the spine because of disk degeneration. Due to arthritis, the joints become loose or lax, and the spine starts to collapse, leading to curvature of the spine and compression of the nerves, ...
BACKGROUND: Measurement of skin oxygen is of great interest in diverse fields of medicine. Different pathologies, e.g. infection, ischemia cancer or chronic wounds show a characteristic oxygen distribution and skin oxygen tension. Additionally diverse operative procedures require a reliable postoperative monitoring in order to ensure success of the therapy. OBJECTIVE: Aim of this study was to assess transepidermal oxygen flux for postoperative wound monitoring after operative treatment of fractures close to the hip. METHODS: 22 patients underwent transepidermal oxygen flux measurement at the first postoperative day. Transepidermal oxygen flux measurement was performed using ratiometric luminescence imaging. Examination was conducted in close proximity to the operation wound. The corresponding area at the contralateral side served as reference. RESULTS: Oxygen flux in the operation area was higher (0.084 +/- 0.021) than the contralateral side (0.071 +/- 0.029). CONCLUSIONS: Transepidermal oxygen ...
Our results suggest that nearly complete factor IXa inhibition, achieved with a single intravenous RB006 bolus, can support elective PCI, a finding that has not been documented previously. RB006 provided a rapid, reproducible, and stable pharmacodynamic response that was measurable with a point-of-care coagulation monitoring device used routinely in the catheterization laboratory. This study was the first to investigate the administration of a highly specific and rapid active control agent to achieve a desired intensity of anticoagulation after PCI. Partial reversal of RB006 allowed a graded or controlled stepdown in anticoagulation after PCI with a defined sheath removal time, whereas complete RB006 reversal allowed sheath removal immediately after PCI, both without complications.. Factor IXa is a vitamin K-dependent protein and an appealing anticoagulation target. Factor IX is activated early after vascular injury and assembles with factor VIIIa on the platelet surface to form a highly ...

Background Cavernous carotid arteriovenous fistulas (CCFs) are a relatively rare but fairly well documented intracranial vascular pathology. The most frequently utilized approach to treatment is endovascular embolization, via either transvenous or transarterial approaches, in order to close the venous outflow or limit the arterial inflow. The adopted standard algorithm to these options is to first attempt mapping a venous tract for catheterization. Frequently, the morphology of the venous drainage is in-sufficient for catheterization. Trans-arterial embolization is typically reserved for these instances given the well documented risks, including cranial nerve injury which approaches a 10% overall risk of complication. A third and less commonly used alternative for treating these difficult CCFs involves direct percutaneous access to the fistula. There are few published case reports documenting this direct access method, including our previous work describing a case in which we treated a clival ...

The authors reviewed 72 adult degenerative scoliosis or kyphosis patients treated between 2012 and 2014. Sixty of these patients (76.7% female with an average age of 61 years) with pre- and post-operative X-rays reached six-month follow up, with X-rays, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Scoliosis Research Society-22 (SRS-22) scores collected at each follow-up visit. Of these 60, 33 had been implanted with more than two cages and 27 had been implanted with less than two. Fière noted that these two groups had similar baseline demographic and clinical parameters, with the exception of body mass index scores.. Fière reported that patients implanted with more than two cages had more Smith-Petersen osteotomy (87% of the ,2 cage group compared with 59% of the ,2 cage group, p=0.011). Fewer patients in the ,2 cage group required bone morphogenic proteins (45.5%) to assist fusion than in the ,2 cage group (77.7%) (p=0.011), while more ,2 cage patients had fixation to sacrum/iliac (94%) than ,2 cage ...
Patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or fibromyalgia experience chronic pain. Concomitantly, the rat model of CFS exhibits microglial activation in the lumbar spinal cord and pain behavior without peripheral tissue damage and/or inflammation. The present study addressed the mechanism underlying the association between pain and chronic stress using this rat model. Chronic or continuous stress-loading (CS) model rats, housed in a cage with a thin level of water (1.5 cm in depth), were used. The von Frey test and pressure pain test were employed to measure pain behavior. The neuronal and microglial activations were immunohistochemically demonstrated with antibodies against ATF3 and Iba1. Electromyography was used to evaluate muscle activity. The expression of ATF3, a marker of neuronal hyperactivity or injury, was first observed in the lumbar dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons 2 days after CS initiation. More than 50% of ATF3-positive neurons simultaneously expressed the proprioceptor
