Is Routine MRI of the Spine Necessary in Trauma Patients with Ankylosing Spinal Disorders or is a CT Scan Sufficient?

Spine J 2019 Mar 16. Epub 2019 Mar 16.

Department of Orthopaedics and Sport Medicine, Harborview Medical Center, 325 Ninth Avenue Seattle, WA 98104, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Ankylosing spinal disorder (ASD) patients are at a greater risk for spinal fractures due to osteoporosis and rigidity of the spinal column. These fractures are associated with a high risk of neurologic compromise resulting from delayed or missed diagnoses. Although CT is usually the initial imaging modality, MRI has been proposed as mandatory to help identify spinal injuries in ASD patients with unexplained neck or back pain or known injuries to help identify non-contiguous fractures.

Ectopic spinal calcification associated with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH): A quantitative micro-ct analysis.

J Orthop Res 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Physiology and Pharmacology, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, The University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada.

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is a non-inflammatory spondyloarthropathy identified radiographically by calcification of the ligaments and/or entheses along the anterolateral aspect of the vertebral column. The etiology and pathogenesis of calcifications are unknown, and the diagnosis of DISH is currently based on radiographic criteria associated with advanced disease. To characterize the features of calcifications associated with DISH, we used micro-computed tomographic imaging to evaluate a cohort of 19 human cadaveric vertebral columns. Read More

Injuries to the Rigid Spine: What the Spine Surgeon Wants to Know.

Radiographics 2019 Mar-Apr;39(2):449-466. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

From the Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis St, Boston, MA 02115.

The biomechanical stability of the spine is altered in patients with a rigid spine, rendering it vulnerable to fracture even from relatively minor impact. The rigid spine entities are ankylosing spondylitis (AS), diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, degenerative spondylosis, and a surgically fused spine. The most common mechanism of injury resulting in fracture is hyperextension, which often leads to unstable injury in patients with a rigid spine per the recent AOSpine classification system.

Interobserver agreement using Schlapbach graded scale for diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH): can we reduce the cut-off point of vertebral affection?

Clin Rheumatol 2019 Apr 18;38(4):1155-1162. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Bone Metabolism Unit. Department of Internal Medicine, University Hospital Marqués de Valdecilla-IDIVAL and University of Cantabria, 39008, Santander, Spain.

Resnick-Niwayama criteria for diagnosing DISH depict an advanced stage, and a new reduced cut-off point with three contiguous vertebrae affected (two bone bridges) has been proposed. The aim has been to know the interobserver agreement by using a graded scale of DISH in which grade II matches with the new proposed cut-off point and grade III matches with the first criterion of Resnick-Niwayama. Males ≥ 50 years and postmenopausal women included in a population-based prospective study (the Camargo Cohort) were analyzed. Read More

[Differential diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis-axSpA mimics].

Z Rheumatol 2019 Feb;78(1):31-42

Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet, Claudiusstr 45, 44649, Herne, Deutschland.

The classification of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) comprises the classical ankylosing spondylitis (AS), which is characterized by already existing structural changes in the sacroiliac joints, and the so-called non-radiographic axSpA (nr-axSpA), in which by definition such changes are not present. This distinction is based on the ASAS classification criteria for axSpA, which are however not suitable for a diagnosis. According to the current classification, spondyloarthritis (SpA) includes axSpA, which can be associated with psoriasis and/or chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (CED), such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and peripheral SpA, which is further divided into SpA associated with psoriasis, partially synonymous with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), reactive SpA, partially synonymous with reactive arthritis (ReA) and SpA associated with CED, partially synonymous with arthritis associated with CED (e.

Imaging of axial spondyloarthritis. New aspects and differential diagnoses.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2018 Sep-Oct;36 Suppl 114(5):35-42. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet, Herne, Germany.

Axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) is a chronic rheumatic disease characterised by inflammatory back pain and several other disease manifestations and comorbidities. The 2009 ASAS classification criteria differentiate between the classical ankylosing spondylitis or radiographic axSpA and non-radiographic axSpA based on the presence or absence of definite radiographic changes in the sacroiliac joints. Importantly, back pain in patients with axSpA may well have reasons other than axial inflammation or new bone formation. Read More

Small sagittal vertical axis accompanied with lumbar hyperlordosis as a risk factor for developing postoperative cervical kyphosis after expansive open-door laminoplasty.

J Neurosurg Spine 2018 Aug 25;29(2):176-181. Epub 2018 May 25.

OBJECTIVE Preoperative positive cervical sagittal imbalance and global sagittal imbalance are risk factors for postoperative cervical kyphosis after expansive open-door cervical laminoplasty (ELAP). The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the incidence of postoperative cervical kyphosis after ELAP and the preoperative global sagittal spinal alignment in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) without spinal sagittal imbalance. METHODS Among 84 consecutive patients who underwent ELAP for CSM at the authors' hospital, 43 patients without preoperative cervical kyphosis (C2-7 angle ≥ 0°) and spinal sagittal imbalance (C2-7 sagittal vertical axis [SVA] ≤ 80 mm and C-7 SVA ≤ 95 mm) were included in the study.

Severe hip joint motion restriction in a patient with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 May;97(18):e0652

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, College of Medicine, Yeungnam University, Taegu, Republic of Korea.

Rationale: Severe limitation of motion (LOM) in the spine occasionally occurs in patients with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). However, in extraspinal areas, significant LOM has rarely been reported. In this study, we report a patient with DISH who had severe motion restriction within both hip joints. Read More

Thoracic aortic aneurysm is an independent factor associated with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis.

Bone Joint J 2018 05;100-B(5):617-621

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine, Nagano, Japan.

Aims: Although we often encounter patients with an aortic aneurysm who also have diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH), there are no reports to date of an association between these two conditions and the pathogenesis of DISH remains unknown. This study therefore evaluated the prevalence of DISH in patients with a thoracic aortic aneurysm (AA).

Patients And Methods: The medical records of 298 patients who underwent CT scans for a diagnosis of an AA or following high-energy trauma were retrospectively examined. Read More

Rich table but short life: Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis in Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) and its possible consequences.

PLoS One 2018 19;13(4):e0195920. Epub 2018 Apr 19.

PACEA-UMR 5199, University of Bordeaux, Pessac, France.

The exhumation of Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) was performed in 2010 to verify speculative views on the cause of his death. Previous analyses of skeletal and hair remains recovered from his grave refuted the presumption that he died from poisoning. These studies also outlined the possibility that he actually died from an acute illness, echoing the rather vague and inaccurate testimony of some historical records. Read More

Anterior longitudinal ligament in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis: Ossified or displaced?

J Orthop Res 2018 Sep 24;36(9):2491-2496. Epub 2018 May 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht University, Box 85500, 3508 GA, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is often theorized to be an ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament (ALL). Using computed tomography (CT) imaging and cryomacrotome sectioning, we investigated the spatial relationship between the ALL and newly formed bone in DISH to test this hypothesis. In the current study, four human cadaveric spines diagnosed with DISH using CT imaging were frozen and sectioned using a cryomacrotome. Read More
