A robust method for RNA extraction and purification from a single adult mouse tendon.

PeerJ 2018 24;6:e4664. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Center for Regenerative Medicine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: Mechanistic understanding of tendon molecular and cellular biology is crucial toward furthering our abilities to design new therapies for tendon and ligament injuries and disease. Recent transcriptomic and epigenomic studies in the field have harnessed the power of mouse genetics to reveal new insights into tendon biology. However, many mouse studies pool tendon tissues or use amplification methods to perform RNA analysis, which can significantly increase the experimental costs and limit the ability to detect changes in expression of low copy transcripts.

From the Departments of Radiology (D.G.) and Pathology (P.R.), University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Pickens Academic Tower, 1400 Pressler St, Unit 1473, Houston, TX 77030-4009; Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.); Department of Radiology, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wis (P.J.P., M.G.L.); Department of Radiology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Ind (K.S.); and Section of Abdominal Imaging, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo (S.B.).

Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome (VHL) is an autosomal-dominant hereditary tumor disease that arises owing to germline mutations in the VHL gene, located on the short arm of chromosome 3. Patients with VHL may develop multiple benign and malignant tumors involving various organ systems, including retinal hemangioblastomas (HBs), central nervous system (CNS) HBs, endolymphatic sac tumors, pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, pancreatic cystadenomas, pancreatic cysts, clear cell renal cell carcinomas, renal cysts, pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas, and epididymal and broad ligament cystadenomas. The VHL/hypoxia-inducible factor pathway is believed to play a key role in the pathogenesis of VHL-related tumors. Read More

Am J Sports Med 2017 Sep 15;45(11):2654-2664. Epub 2017 Feb 15.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Background: Preventive medicine techniques have alleviated billions of dollars' worth of the economic burden in the medical care system through the implementation of vaccinations and screenings before the onset of disease symptoms. Knowledge of biomechanical tendencies has progressed rapidly over the past 20 years such that clinicians can identify, in healthy athletes, the underlying mechanisms that lead to catastrophic injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures. As such, preventive medicine concepts can be applied to noncontact musculoskeletal injuries to reduce the economic burden of sports medicine treatments and enhance the long-term health of athletes.

Madelung deformity and Madelung-type deformities: a review of the clinical and radiological characteristics.

Pediatr Radiol 2015 Nov 2;45(12):1856-63. Epub 2015 Jul 2.

Shriners Hospitals for Children, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Madelung deformity of the distal radius results from premature closure of the medial volar aspect of the distal radial physis, leading to increased volar tilt and increased inclination of the radial articular surface, triangulation of the carpus with proximal migration of the lunate and dorsal displacement of the distal ulna. The deformity is particularly common in Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis, but it may also occur in isolation. True Madelung deformity can be differentiated from Madelung-type deformities by the presence of an anomalous radiolunate ligament (Vickers ligament). Read More

Intravenous leiomyomatosis revisited: an experience of 14 cases at a single medical center.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2015 Mar;34(2):169-76

Department of Pathology, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) is a rare neoplasm of smooth muscle origin with the capacity for distant vascular and/or organ extension. The primary lesion is typically found in the uterus, with the most common extrauterine sites being pelvic/broad ligament vessels, and less often inferior vena cava, right heart chambers, and pulmonary vasculature. Extrauterine involvement can result in direct mass effect or vascular obstruction with associated clinical sequelae. Read More

Optical clearing in dense connective tissues to visualize cellular connectivity in situ.

PLoS One 2015 12;10(1):e0116662. Epub 2015 Jan 12.

Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, United States of America.

Visualizing the three-dimensional morphology and spatial patterning of cells embedded deep within dense connective tissues of the musculoskeletal system has been possible only by utilizing destructive techniques. Here we utilize fructose-based clearing solutions to image cell connectivity and deep tissue-scale patterning in situ by standard confocal microscopy. Optical clearing takes advantage of refractive index matching of tissue and the embedding medium to visualize light transmission through a broad range of bovine and whole mount murine tissues, including cartilage, bone, and ligament, of the head and hindlimb.

A case of symptomatic mass in the right iliac fossa: a Bermuda Triangle which often lies the right diagnosis.

Ann Ital Chir 2014 Feb 24;85(ePub). Epub 2014 Feb 24.

Disease of the iliac fossa can often be accompanied by non-specific symptoms and some of these are exclusively caused by the compression of bulky masses of other neighboring structures. In young women a differential diagnosis is a non trivial task as several possible causes have to be taken into account. Thus, intraligamentary tumors, which are extremely rare finding, are frequently confused with uterus, ovary or intestinal tumors. Read More
