Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) in the Management of Osteoporosis and Assessment of Fracture Risk: An Update.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2022 ;1364:7-34

Interdisciplinary Center of Bone Diseases, Bone and Joint Department, Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and Lausanne University, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) presents a low cost and readily available alternative to DXA measurements of bone mineral density (BMD) for osteoporotic fracture risk assessment. It is performed in a variety of skeletal sites, among which the most widely investigated and clinically used are first the calcaneus and then the radius. Nevertheless, there is still uncertainty in the incorporation of QUS in the clinical management of osteoporosis as the level of clinical validation differs substantially upon the QUS models available.

Arthrosc Tech 2022 Apr 28;11(4):e669-e673. Epub 2022 Mar 28.

Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A.

Joint-spanning external fixation in acute ankle trauma is a means to provide temporary stability and restoration of length, alignment, and articular congruency. This allows for soft-tissue consolidation before definitive fixation to decrease the risk of wound complications. Traction is commonly used during definitive fixation to aid in fracture reduction and to maintain reduction during placement of internal hardware. Read More

Hindfoot Fractures: Injury Patterns and Relevant Imaging Findings.

Radiographics 2022 May-Jun;42(3):661-682. Epub 2022 Mar 11.

From the Department of Radiology, UCSD Health System, 408 Dickinson St, San Diego, CA 92103-8226 (E.S.); and Department of Radiology, UT Health Science Center, San Antonio, Tex (M.D.).

The hindfoot consists of the talus and calcaneus, spans the tibiotalar to transverse tarsal joints, and is critical for support of body weight and absorption and transfer of physiologic loads during bipedal movements. Hindfoot fractures account for approximately 17% of foot and ankle fractures, with calcaneal fractures being more common than talar fractures. Hindfoot fractures are usually caused by high-impact axial loads such as falls from heights and motor vehicle accidents, and understandably, they are often seen in patients with polytrauma.

A clinical and statistical study of the frequency, structure and circumstances of posterior foot injury was carried out in 1047 patients admitted to the clinic in the period from 2007 to 2020. Age and gender groups have been identified, in which most often injuries leading to hospitalization occurred as a result of a fall with low kinetic energy at home or on the street, due to negligence, illegal actions and road accidents. The majority of patients were hospitalized urgently after injury, among which fractures of the calcaneus prevailed (84. Read More

Stress fracture of the calcaneus.

Tidsskr Nor Laegeforen 2022 03 28;142(4). Epub 2022 Feb 28.

Calcaneal stress fracture is an injury that particularly affects athletes and runners owing to repeated stress on the lower extremities without sufficient recovery time. Medial and lateral heel pain during activity raises suspicion of the injury, but radiological examinations are required for a definitive diagnosis. The treatment is usually conservative, involving rest and dietary correction, and a pharmacological or surgical approach is only relevant in some few cases. Read More
