Mechanisms of GDF-5 action during skeletal development. (1/608)

Mutations in GDF-5, a member of the TGF-beta superfamily, result in the autosomal recessive syndromes brachypod (bp) in mice and Hunter-Thompson and Grebe-type chondrodysplasias in humans. These syndromes are all characterised by the shortening of the appendicular skeleton and loss or abnormal development of some joints. To investigate how GDF-5 controls skeletogenesis, we overexpressed GDF-5 during chick limb development using the retrovirus, RCASBP. This resulted in up to a 37.5% increase in length of the skeletal elements, which was predominantly due to an increase in the number of chondrocytes. By injecting virus at different stages of development, we show that GDF-5 can increase both the size of the early cartilage condensation and the later developing skeletal element. Using in vitro micromass cultures as a model system to study the early steps of chondrogenesis, we show that GDF-5 increases chondrogenesis in a dose-dependent manner. We did not detect changes in proliferation. However, cell suspension cultures showed that GDF-5 might act at these stages by increasing cell adhesion, a critical determinant of early chondrogenesis. In contrast, pulse labelling experiments of GDF-5-infected limbs showed that at later stages of skeletal development GDF-5 can increase proliferation of chondrocytes. Thus, here we show two mechanisms of how GDF-5 may control different stages of skeletogenesis. Finally, our data show that levels of GDF-5 expression/activity are important in controlling the size of skeletal elements and provides a possible explanation for the variation in the severity of skeletal defects resulting from mutations in GDF-5.  (+info)

Support of the anterior column with allografts in tuberculosis of the spine. (2/608)

Fresh-frozen allografts from the humerus were used to help to stabilise the spine after anterior decompression for tuberculosis in 47 children with a mean age of 4.2 years (2 to 9). The average angle of the gibbus, before operation, was 53 degrees; at follow-up, two years later, it was 15 degrees. Rejection of the graft or deep sepsis was not seen. Cross trabeculation between the allograft and the vertebral body was observed at six months, with remodelling occurring at approximately 30 months.  (+info)

Regulation of chondrocyte differentiation by Cbfa1. (3/608)

Cbfa1, a developmentally expressed transcription factor of the runt family, was recently shown to be essential for osteoblast differentiation. We have investigated the role of Cbfa1 in endochondral bone formation using Cbfa1-deficient mice. Histology and in situ hybridization with probes for indian hedgehog (Ihh), collagen type X and osteopontin performed at E13.5, E14.5 and E17.5 demonstrated a lack of hypertrophic chondrocytes in the anlagen of the humerus and the phalanges and a delayed onset of hypertrophy in radius/ulna in Cbfa1-/- mice. Detailed analysis of Cbfa1 expression using whole mount in situ hybridization and a lacZ reporter gene reveled strong expression not only in osteoblasts but also in pre-hypertrophic and hypertrophic chondrocytes. Our studies identify Cbfa1 as a major positive regulator of chondrocyte differentiation.  (+info)

Retardation of bone growth in triamcinolone-treated mice. (4/608)

Immature mice were treated for up to 8 weeks with daily doses of triamcinolone diacetate. The epiphyseal cartilage plate and its surrounding bone from the humeral head were studied histologically at regular intervals. Concomitantly, roentgenographic measurements were performed on the humeri in toto. By the tenth injection significant morphological changes were noted in the cartilaginous plate, followed by complete cessation of bone growth. Severe triglyceride accumulation appeared in the experimental livers and humeral bone marrow. Osteoporosis also occurred and became severe from the fifth week of triamcinolone administration. Possible explanations for the above findings are discussed.  (+info)

Retinoid signaling is required for chondrocyte maturation and endochondral bone formation during limb skeletogenesis. (5/608)

Retinoids have long been known to influence skeletogenesis but the specific roles played by these effectors and their nuclear receptors remain unclear. Thus, it is not known whether endogenous retinoids are present in developing skeletal elements, whether expression of the retinoic acid receptor (RAR) genes alpha, beta, and gamma changes during chondrocyte maturation, or how interference with retinoid signaling affects skeletogenesis. We found that immature chondrocytes present in stage 27 (Day 5.5) chick embryo humerus exhibited low and diffuse expression of RARalpha and gamma, while RARbeta expression was strong in perichondrium. Emergence of hypertrophic chondrocytes in Day 8-10 embryo limbs was accompanied by a marked and selective up-regulation of RARgamma gene expression. The RARgamma-rich type X collagen-expressing hypertrophic chondrocytes lay below metaphyseal prehypertrophic chondrocytes expressing Indian hedgehog (Ihh) and were followed by mineralizing chondrocytes undergoing endochondral ossification. Bioassays revealed that cartilaginous elements in Day 5.5, 8.5, and 10 chick embryo limbs all contained endogenous retinoids; strikingly, the perichondrial tissues surrounding the cartilages contained very large amounts of retinoids. Implantation of beads filled with retinoid antagonist Ro 41-5253 or AGN 193109 near the humeral anlagens in stage 21 (Day 3.5) or stage 27 chick embryos severely affected humerus development. In comparison to their normal counterparts, antagonist-treated humeri in Day 8.5-10 chick embryos were significantly shorter and abnormally bent; their diaphyseal chondrocytes had remained prehypertrophic Ihh-expressing cells, did not express RARgamma, and were not undergoing endochondral ossification. Interestingly, formation of an intramembranous bony collar around the diaphysis was not affected by antagonist treatment. Using chondrocyte cultures, we found that the antagonists effectively interfered with the ability of all-trans-retinoic acid to induce terminal cell maturation. The results provide clear evidence that retinoid-dependent and RAR-mediated mechanisms are required for completion of the chondrocyte maturation process and endochondral ossification in the developing limb. These mechanisms may be positively influenced by cooperative interactions between the chondrocytes and their retinoid-rich perichondrial tissues.  (+info)

The inferior capsular shift operation for instability of the shoulder. Long-term results in 34 shoulders. (6/608)

We reviewed 26 patients with 34 shoulders treated by the inferior capsular shift operation for inferior and multidirectional instability. The mean follow-up was 8.3 years. In total, 12 shoulders showed voluntary subluxation. Eight operations used an anterior and posterior approach, 11 were by the posterior route, and 15 shoulders had an anterior approach. In 30 shoulders (85%) the outcome was satisfactory and 20 (59%) scored good or excellent results on the Rowe system. Instability had recurred in nine shoulders (26%) from three months to three years after the operation. Six of the 12 shoulders with voluntary subluxation (50%) had recurrence, as against three of the other 22 (14%), a statistically significant difference. The operation is therefore not indicated for voluntary subluxation. The 19 shoulders which had been assessed in 1987 at a mean of 3.5 years after surgery, were also reviewed in 1995 and found to have no significant changes in instability or Rowe score. This shows that the capsular shift appeared to have maintained its tension over an eight-year period. After the use of a posterior approach, 64% of the shoulders showed a posterolateral defect on radiographs of the humerus.  (+info)

Maturational disturbance of chondrocytes in Cbfa1-deficient mice. (7/608)

Cbfa1, a transcription factor that belongs to the runt-domain gene family, plays an essential role in osteogenesis. Cbfa1-deficient mice completely lacked both intramembranous and endochondral ossification, owing to the maturational arrest of osteoblasts, indicating that Cbfa1 has a fundamental role in osteoblast differentiation. However, Cbfa1 was also expressed in chondrocytes, and its expression was increased according to the maturation of chondrocytes. Terminal hypertrophic chondrocytes expressed Cbfa1 extensively. The significant expression of Cbfa1 in hypertrophic chondrocytes was first detected at embryonic day 13.5 (E13.5), and its expression in hypertrophic chondrocytes was most prominent at E14.5-16.5. In Cbfa1-deficient mice, whose entire skeleton was composed of cartilage, the chondrocyte differentiation was disturbed. Calcification of cartilage occurred in the restricted parts of skeletons, including tibia, fibula, radius, and ulna. Type X collagen, BMP6, and Indian hedgehog were expressed in their hypertrophic chondrocytes. However, osteopontin, bone sialoprotein, and collagenase 3 were not expressed at all, indicating that they are directly regulated by Cbfa1 in the terminal hypertrophic chondrocytes. Chondrocyte differentiation was severely disturbed in the rest of the skeleton. The expression of PTH/PTHrP receptor, Indian hedgehog, type X collagen, and BMP6 was not detected in humerus and femur, indicating that chondrocyte differentiation was blocked before prehypertrophic chondrocytes. These findings demonstrate that Cbfa1 is an important factor for chondrocyte differentiation.  (+info)

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether anatomic fit mismatch between EADHP and the distal humerus increases as humeral size decreases when an EADHP is used to repair a distal humeral fracture. EADHP protrusion decreased by 0.08 mm per 1-mm increase in humeral length. As distal humeral width increased by 1 mm, plate protrusion decreased by 0.48 mm. Additionally, when humeral length was ,293.6 mm or distal humeral width was ,60.5 mm, plate protrusion was at least 10 mm at the distal humerus.. Despite the tapered design of the EADHP for the distal humerus, anatomic fit mismatch frequently occurred at the distal tip of the EADHP. The EADHP was designed to allow distal fixation with five locking screws (three bicortical screws proximally on the lateral column and two unicortical screws at the end toward the capitellum and trochlea) [11]. If EADHPs are proximally fixed to avoid distal tip protrusion in small-sized humeri, mismatch at the distal tip of the plate can be reduced to some ...
In human anatomy of the arm, the lateral portion of the distal articular surface of the humerus consists of a smooth, rounded eminence, named the capitulum of the humerus. In non-human tetrapods, the name capitellum is generally used, with capitulum limited to the anteroventral articular facet of the rib (in archosauromorphs). It articulates with the cupshaped depression on the head of the radius, and is limited to the front and lower part of the bone. Lepidosaurs show a distinct capitellum and trochlea on the centre of the ventral (anterior in upright taxa) surface of the humerus at the distal end. In non-avian archosaurs, including crocodiles, the capitellum and the trochlea are no longer bordered by distinct ect- and entepicondyles respectively, and the distal humerus consists two gently expanded condyles, one lateral and one medial, separated by a shallow groove and a supinator process. Romer (1976) homologizes the capitellum in Archosauromorphs with the groove separating the medial and ...

Lateral condylar humerus fractures (LCHFs) are the second most common pediatric distal humerus fractures. Open reduction and internal fixation is recommended for fractures displaced by more than 2 mm. Few studies described using closed reduction and percutaneous pinning (CRPP) for treating fractures with greater displacements. This study aims to explore the feasibility of CRPP in treating displaced LCHFs. All patients underwent attempted CRPP first. Once a satisfying reduction was obtained, as determined using fluoroscopy based on the relative anatomical position of the fragments, an intraoperative arthrogram was performed to further confirm the congruence of the articular surface of the distal humerus. Open reduction is necessary to ensure adequate reduction if the fracture gap is more than 2.0 mm on either anteroposterior view or oblique internal rotational view by fluoroscopy after CRPP. All included fractures were treated by a single pediatric surgeon. Forty-six patients were included, 29 boys and
Introduction: Distal humerus fractures are uncommon injuries accounting for fewer than 2% of all adult fractures. It has bimodal age distribution, 14-30 years common in males and they are high energy fracture or 70 years and older commoner in females and they are low energy fractures. Complex shape of elbow, adjacent neurovascular architecture & sparse soft tissue envelope combine together to make these fractures difficult to treat. :A study was conducted on 34 adult pts. having intercondylar fracture humerus from Feb 07 to Dec12. Classification done as per Rise borough & Radin. All were closed AO type C except 2 open # I/C humerus. Majority of cases were operated within 2wks. of injury. Objective is precise reconstruction of articular surfaces, proper alignment, stable internal fixation, allowing early motion and repair of all concomitant lesions..

The humerus is ossified from eight centers, one for each of the following parts: the body, the head, the greater tubercle, the lesser tubercle, the capitulum, the trochlea, and one for each epicondyle. One primary and seven secondary centres . The center for the body appears near the middle of the diaphysis in the eighth week of fetal life, and soon extends toward the extremities. This is the primary centre At birth the humerus is ossified in nearly its whole length, only the extremities remaining cartilaginous. During the first year, sometimes before birth, ossification commences in the head of the bone, and during the second year the center for the greater tubercle, and during the fifth that for the lesser tubercle, make their appearance. By the sixth year the centers for the head and tubercles have joined, so as to form a single large epiphysis, which fuses with the body about the twentieth year. The lower end of the humerus is ossified as follows. At the end of the second year ossification ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Structural adaptations of the femur and humerus to arboreal and terrestrial environments in three species of macaque. AU - Burr, David. AU - Ruff, C. B.. AU - Johnson, C.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - One reason to measure cross-sectional structural properties of primate long bones is to define mechanically relevant complexes of traits that describe the adaptation of bone to different biomechanical environments. This can be effectively accomplished when congeneric species having different postural and locomotor behaviors are compared. This paper compares the cross-sectional geometry of the femur and humerus in three behaviorally different macaque species as a basis for defining such patterns. Cross-sectional moments of inertia in the standard anatomical planes were calculated at five locations along the diaphyses of the femur and humerus in Macaca fascicularis, M. nemestrina, and M. mulatta. The data suggest that the barrel-shaped femur is associated with behaviors for which long ...

BACKGROUND: Proximal humeral fractures account for 5-6% of all fractures in adults. There is considerable variation in whether or not surgery is used in the management of displaced fractures involving the surgical neck. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of surgical compared with non-surgical treatment of the majority of displaced fractures of the proximal humerus involving the surgical neck in adults. DESIGN: A pragmatic parallel-group multicentre randomised controlled trial with an economic evaluation. Follow-up was for 2 years. SETTING: Recruitment was undertaken in the orthopaedic departments of 33 acute NHS hospitals in the UK. Patient care pathways included outpatient and community-based rehabilitation. PARTICIPANTS: Adults (aged ≥ 16 years) presenting within 3 weeks of their injury with a displaced fracture of the proximal humerus involving the surgical neck. INTERVENTIONS: The choice of surgical intervention was left to the treating surgeons, who used
On the anterior lateral surface of the condyle is the lateral capitulum, which articulates with the head of the radius bone, and on the anterior medial surface of the condyle is the trochlea, which articulates the trochlear notch of the ulna bone. Introduction. The grooved portion of the articular surface fits accurately within the semilunar notch of the ulna; it is broader and deeper on the posterior than on the anterior aspect of the bone, and is inclined obliquely downward and forward toward the medial side. Charcot arthropathy is a rare disorder characterised by debilitating joint destruction. Understand the bones structure that comprise the Clavicle, Scapula & Humerus. The body is cylindrical in its upper portion, and more prismatic below. Humerus Fractures of the proximal end: Humeral head fracture: may occur in anterior or posterior dislocations of shoulder Greater tuberosity fracture: It is due to direct trauma, dislocation of the shoulder joint or due to violent contraction of ...
Ossifications after osteosynthesis of the proximal humerus are poorly described. We report a case of major and early ossifications after synthesis of a fracture dislocation of the shoulder. Case presentation: A 57 year-old man, right-handed, bipolar schizophrenic, presented after a fall, a fracture of the head and metaphysis of the humerus from the anterior notch of posterior dislocation of the right humerus. An osteosynthesis was performed after reduction on the tenth post-traumatic day. The postoperative period was complicated because of early ossifications and painless stiffness of the shoulder. Conclusion: The importance of local trauma, the long consultation period, the operative difficulties and the heparin therapy are factors that could have favored the occurrence of ossifications. Preventive treatment could have prevented them or limited their extent.
Id hoped to get a longer update posted last night, but it just didnt happen - comforting FangFang when she was feeling yucky and then sleeping when she was comfortably sleeping took priority! I do so appreciate the prayers and support from all of you, though, so I want to let you know where were at today!. To back up a bit, wed been planning for months to do bilateral tibia rodding surgery yesterday, but when FangFang broke her right humerus about 10 days ago, Id sent a copy of the x-rays to her orthopedic surgeons in Omaha, just in case seeing those images changed their minds about surgery plans. Their assistant e-mailed me on Monday and said Dr. Esposito would talk with me on Tuesday about our options, but I didnt think much of it. The fracture wasnt incredibly severe, and operating on two limbs at a time is a fair amount already. However, when we saw him in pre-op yesterday, he suggested that we prioritize what was giving her the most trouble but try to rod all 3 bones if possible. He ...

Loss of reduction and screw perforation causes high failure rates in the treatment of proximal humerus fractures. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the early postoperative complications using modern Dynamic Locking Screws (DLS 3.7) for plating of proximal humerus fractures. Between 03/2009 and 12/2010, 64 patients with acute proximal humerus fractures were treated by angular stable plate fixation using DLSs in a limited multi-centre study. Follow-up examinations were performed three, six, twelve and twenty-four weeks postoperatively and any complications were carefully collected. 56 of 64 patients were examined at the six-month follow-up. Complications were observed in 12 patients (22%). In five cases (9%), a perforation of the DLS 3.7 occurred. Despite the use of modern DLS 3.7, the early complications after plating of proximal humerus fractures remain high. The potential advantage of the DLS 3.7 regarding secondary screw perforation has to be confirmed by future randomized controlled

AU - Fehringer, Edward V.. PY - 2016/5/1. Y1 - 2016/5/1. N2 - Proximal humerus fractures are the third most common fracture in the elderly. Although most fractures can be treated conservatively with acceptable outcomes, certain fracture patterns are at high risk for progression to humeral malunions, nonunions, stiffness, and post-traumatic arthrosis. The goal of antegrade humeral nailing of proximal humerus fractures is to provide stability to a reduced fracture that allows early motion to optimize patient outcomes. Certain technical pearls are pivotal in managing these difficult fractures with nails; these include rotator cuff management, respect of the soft tissues, anatomic tuberosity position, blood supply maintenance, knowledge of the deforming forces on the proximal humerus, fracture reduction, and ...

A prospective comparative study in the management of Neers type II and type III proximal humerus fracture with proximal humerus nail versus proximal humerus internal locking system
Background: Concerning surgical management experience with locking plates for proximal humeral fractures has been described with promising results. Though, distinct hardware related complaints after fracture union are reported. Information concerning the outcome after removal of hardware from the proximal humerus is lacking and most studies on hardware removal are focused on the lower extremity. Therefore the aim of this study was to analyze the functional short-term outcome following removal of locking plate fixation of the proximal humerus. Methods: Patients undergoing removal of a locking plate of the proximal humerus were prospectively followed. Patients were subdivided into the following groups: Group HI: symptoms of hardware related subacromial impingement, Group RD: persisting rotation deficit, Group RQ: patients with request for a hardware removal. The clinical (Constant-Murley score) and radiologic (AP and axial view) follow-up took place three and six months after the operation. To ...

Distal humerus fracture is a condition which occurs when there is a break in the lower end of the humerus. Distal humerus fracture treatment is offered at Brahms, Cohn & Leb Orthopaedics in Cleveland, OH.
Humerus. In the upper arm, there is but one bone, the humerus. Its knoblike upper end forms the ball portion of the ball-and-socket shoulder joint; the scapula forms the socket portion. The four muscles that immediately surround the shoulder joint are attached to the outer part of the knob. Since the scapula and the humerus fit together rather poorly, these muscles must hold the bones closely together.. The upper part of the humerus shaft is at first cylindrical. As it approaches the elbow, it flattens out and expands sideways. At this expanded end are two joint surfaces that lie side by side. The inner surface resembles a spool, pulley, or hourglass laid on its side. It is known as the trochlea, the Greek word for pulley. The inner bone of the forearm, the ulna, hooks onto the trochlea from behind.. Radius and Ulna. The forearm contains two bones: the ulna and the radius. The ulna is primarily involved in the bending and straightening of the elbow-it is thick and massive at the elbow while ...
Aim: Displaced and intraarticular humerus distal fractures require surgical treatment. In this study we evaluated to functional results of the surgical treatment of distal humerus intraarticular fractures in adults. Additionally, we evaluated the factors affecting surgical outcomes. Material and Method: Between 2005 to 2010, 22 elbows of 21 patients who were operated for distal humerus intraarticular fractures were evaluated retrospectively. 11(52.4%) patient were male and 10(47.6%) were female, mean age 46.2 (range 17 to 71). Fractures were classified as type B3 for 10, type Cl for 6 and type C2 for 6 subjects according to AO classifications. We performed paralel double locking plate for 9(41%), perpendicular double plate for 2(9%), K wires and screw combination for 7(32%), and single plate for 4(18%) patients. Functional assesment were performed with the MEPS and q-DASH scoring systems. Results: Mean follow-up was 30.4(5-68) months. Fracture healing was observed in all of the patients. Mean ...
Background: Proximal humerus fractures are represented as 4-5 of all fractures, with incidence notably growing with age. Since surgical internal fixation in treatment of proximal humeral fractures is used, fractures of osteoporotic bone and choice of plate for their osteosynthesis represent particular problem. The aim of the study was to test two locking plates: Philos plate with locking screws with determinated direction, and Arthrex plate with poliaxial locking screws, using the finite element method. Subjects and methods: This study used version 6.10 of Abaqus FEA software package for simulation and fine element analysis of Philos and Artrex plates attached to the osteotomy models of proximal humerus with fracture gap at 0°, 10° and 20° in four types of static load: abduction, adduction, axial compression and flexion. Simulation results of loads in abduction, adduction, axial loads and flexion, were described with the total bone displacement (U) and maximum bone displacement in the ...

Distal humeral extension-type malunions may occur as a complication following improper reduction of supracondylar humerus fractures. We evaluated results after distal humeral flexion osteotomies for sagittal realignment of the humeral condyle in children. Medical records and radiographs of all patients younger than 18 years of age, who underwent this procedure because of a clinically relevant lack of elbow flexion, were evaluated. In a cohort of 18 children with a mean age of 8 years at the time of surgery and a mean follow-up duration of 1 year, elbow flexion increased significantly from a mean of 101° preoperatively to 126° at the final follow-up; established radiographic parameters (e ...

A proximal end of a humerus collected by C. Ameghino was designated as the holotype of Apterodytes ictus Ameghino, 1901 in the monotypic genus Apterodytes Ameghino, 1901. Later, Ameghino (1905) transferred this species to the new genus Palaeoapterodytes Ameghino, 1905. The validity and affinity of this species has been discussed controversial, not only on account of the poor preservation of the material, but also because of the characters used in its diagnosis and description. A systematic revision of Aptenodytes ictus (Ameghino, 1901) is presented. This is a proximal end of a right humerus strongly weathered that was interpreted as a complete humerus with an unique morphology. The characters included in the original diagnosis and the description are inadequate to compare with those of other species as they are based mainly on the assumption of the atrophy of a humerus that is in fact fractured and incomplete. Its morphology allows its confidant assignment to the family Spheniscidae, although it ...

Introduction : Humeral shaft fractures are quite common in orthopedics and represent 1-3% of adult fractures. The surgical treatment is the a better choice in order to obtain a reduction and stable alignment and to prevent the complications. The goal of this study was to compare the three techniques (IMN, LCP and EF) in the treatment of diaphyseal fractures of the humerus in the adult patient. Materials and Methods: We examined 79 patients with diaphyseal fractures of the humerus. 32 were treated with plaque (LCP), 26 with intramedullary nail (IMN) and 21 with eternal fixer (FE) The clinical and radiographic follow-up was done at 1.3, 6 and 12 months. As rating scales we used the ASES and SF-36. We recorded all the complications. Results: The median follow-up was 11.5 months (9-16). The operative time was significantly smaller in the case of FE (47 ) with a statistically significant difference compared with other techniques. Even the blood loss was lower in the case of FE (60ml), compared to ...
