MRI findings of serous atrophy of bone marrow and associated complications. - European radiology
To report the MRI appearance of serous atrophy of bone marrow (SABM) and analyse clinical findings and complications of SABM.A retrospective search of MRI examinations of SABM was performed. Symptoms, underlying conditions, MRI findings, delay in diagnosis and associated complications were recorded.We identified 30 patients (15 male, 15 female; mean age: 46 ± 21 years) with MRI findings of SABM. Underlying conditions included anorexia nervosa (n = 10), cachexia from malignant (n = 5) and non-malignant (n = 7) causes, massive weight loss after bariatric surgery (n = 1), biliary atresia (n = 1), AIDS (n = 3), endocrine disorders (n = 2) and scurvy (n = 1). MRI showed mildly hypointense signal on T1- weighted and hyperintense signal on fat-suppressed fluid-sensitive images of affected bone marrow in all cases and similar signal abnormalities of the adjacent subcutaneous fat in 29/30 cases. Seven patients underwent repeat MRI due to initial misinterpretation of bone marrow signal as technical error. Superimposed fractures of the hips and lower extremities were common (n = 14).SABM occurs most commonly in anorexia nervosa and cachexia. MRI findings of SABM are often misinterpreted as technical error requiring unnecessary repeat imaging. SABM is frequently associated with fractures of the lower extremities.• SABM occurs in several underlying conditions, most commonly anorexia nervosa and cachexia. • Abnormal marrow signal is often misinterpreted as technical error requiring unnecessary repeat imaging. • SABM is frequently associated with stress fractures. • Fractures in SABM can be obscured by marrow signal abnormality on MRI.
Effectiveness of magnetic resonance imaging in detecting partial and complete distal biceps tendon rupture. - The Journal of hand surgery
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the elbow is often obtained to confirm the clinical suspicion of a distal biceps tendon rupture. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of MRI in diagnosing partial and complete distal biceps tendon ruptures as determined at the time of surgery.We identified 22 partial and 24 complete distal biceps tendon ruptures operated on by a single surgeon. The preoperative MRIs of these patients were obtained, along with MRIs of the elbow in 10 asymptomatic individuals. Two musculoskeletal radiologists read each MRI without knowledge of the diagnosis or the surgical findings. Their interpretations were compared with the intraoperative findings and the results were statistically analyzed.The overall sensitivity and specificity of MRI were 92.4% and 100%, respectively, in detecting distal biceps tendon ruptures. The sensitivity and specificity of MRI for complete tears were 100% and 82.8%, respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of MRI for partial tears were 59.1% and 100%, respectively.Magnetic resonance imaging is an effective tool for diagnosing distal biceps tendon ruptures. Although MRI is extremely sensitive in diagnosing complete tears, it is substantially less sensitive in diagnosing partial tears.Diagnostic II.Copyright 2010 American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

Imaging of stress fractures in the athlete. - Radiologic clinics of North America
Osseous stress fractures and stress reactions represent the effect of abnormal repetitive stress on normal bone. An accurate and thorough clinical history and sequential radiographs often suffice 40 make the diagnosis especially when the fracture occurs in one of the common locations, such as the tibia, metatarsals, or calcaneus. In cases that are atypical in location or clinical presentation the authors rely more on MR imaging, radionuclide bone scanning, and occasionally CT. MR imaging detects early changes of osseous stress injury and allows precise definition of anatomy and extent of injury, and is the preferred modality for evaluating the continuum of osseous manifestations of stress injury. MR imaging is useful in evaluating shin splints, early osseous stress injuries, and overt stress fracture. In the elite athlete prompt diagnosis and early rehabilitation are the goals.
Low dose compared to variable dose Warfarin and to Fondaparinux as prophylaxis for thromboembolism after elective hip or knee replacement surgery; a randomized, prospective study. - Thrombosis journal
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE), known together as venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease remain major complications following elective hip and knee surgery. This study compares three chemoprophylactic regimens for VTE following elective primary unilateral hip or knee replacement, one of which was designed to minimize risk of post-operative bleeding.Patients were randomized and stratified for hip vs. knee to receive A: variable dose warfarin (first dose on the night preceding surgery with subsequent target INR 2.0-2.5), B: 2.5 mg fondaparinux daily starting 6-18 h postoperatively, or C: fixed 1.0 mg dose warfarin daily starting 7 days preoperatively. All treatments continued until bilateral leg venous ultrasound day 28 ± 2 or earlier upon a VTE event. The study examined primary endpoints including leg DVT, PE or death due to VTE and secondary endpoints including effects on D-dimer, estimated blood loss (EBL) at surgery and hemorrhagic complications.Three hundred fifty-five patients were randomized. None was lost to follow-up. Taking 1.0 mg warfarin for seven days preoperatively did not prolong the prothrombin time (PT). Two patients in Arm C had asymptomatic distal DVT. One major bleed occurred in Arm B and one in Arm C (ischemic colitis). Elevated d-dimer did not predict delayed VTE for one year.Fixed low dose warfarin started preoperatively is equivalent to two other standards of care under study (95 % CI: -0.0428, 0.0067 for both) as VTE prophylaxis for the patients having elective major joint replacement surgery.ClinicalTrials.gov identifier # NCT00767559 FDA IND: 103,716.
