Skeletal Radiol 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Radiology and Department of Orthopedics, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

Synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon benign neoplasm that usually affects large appendicular joints and only rarely the spine. There are only a few small series and case reports documenting malignant transformation of synovial chondromatosis into secondary chondrosarcoma, typically within the hip in the setting of recalcitrant disease and multiple recurrences. Chondrosarcoma arising in synovial chondromatosis of the spine is exceedingly rare, with only one previously published case report involving the craniocervical junction. Read More

Structural Features of Heparan Sulfate from Multiple Osteochondromas and Chondrosarcomas.

Molecules 2018 Dec 11;23(12). Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Medical Genetics and Rare Orthopaedic Diseases & CLIBI Laboratory-IRCCS, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, V. di Barbiano 1/10, 40136 Bologna, Italy.

Multiple osteochondromas (MO) is a hereditary disorder associated with benign cartilaginous tumors, known to be characterized by absence or highly reduced amount of heparan sulfate (HS) in the extracellular matrix of growth plate cartilage, which alters proper signaling networks leading to improper bone growth. Although recent studies demonstrated accumulation of HS in the cytoplasm of MO chondrocytes, nothing is known on the structural alterations which prevent HS from undergoing its physiologic pathway. In this work, osteochondroma (OC), peripheral chondrosarcoma, and healthy cartilaginous human samples were processed following a procedure previously set up to structurally characterize and compare HS from pathologic and physiologic conditions, and to examine the phenotypic differences that arise in the presence of either exostosin 1 or 2 ( or ) mutations.

The usefulness of wide excision assisted by a computer navigation system and reconstruction using a frozen bone autograft for malignant acetabular bone tumors: a report of two cases.

BMC Cancer 2018 Oct 24;18(1):1036. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kanazawa University, 13-1 Takara-machi, Kanazawa, 920-8641, Japan.

Background: Difficult resection of tumors from regions with complex local anatomy, such as the pelvis and sacrum, is likely to result in inadequate surgical margins (intralesional or marginal); this is because three-dimensional osteotomy is difficult particularly around the acetabulum. Additionally, removal of the joint makes reconstruction very difficult; thus, retention of good function also becomes difficult. In musculoskeletal oncology, computer navigation systems are still not widely used to prevent tumor-positive margins. Read More

Applications of PET/CT and PET/MR Imaging in Primary Bone Malignancies.

PET Clin 2018 Oct 17;13(4):623-634. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90007, USA.

Primary bone malignancies are characterized with anatomic imaging. However, in recent years, there has been an increased interest in PET/computed tomography scanning and PET/MRI with fludeoxyglucose F 18 for evaluating and staging musculoskeletal neoplasms. These hybrid imaging modalities have shown promise largely owing to their high sensitivity, ability to perform more thorough staging, and ability to monitor treatment response. Read More
