Pediatric skeletal diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, part 2: current and emerging applications.

Pediatr Radiol 2021 May 21. Epub 2021 May 21.

Division of Pediatric Radiology, Department of Imaging Sciences, University of Rochester Medical Center, 601 Elmwood Ave., Rochester, NY, 14642, USA.

Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) complements the more established T1, fluid-sensitive and gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance pulse sequences used to assess several pediatric skeletal pathologies. There is optimism that the technique might not just be complementary but could serve as an alternative to gadolinium and radiopharmaceuticals for several indications. As a non-contrast, free-breathing and noninvasive technique, DWI is especially valuable in children and is readily incorporated into existing MRI protocols. Read More

Targeting DKK1 prevents development of alcohol-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head in rats.

Am J Transl Res 2021 15;13(4):2320-2330. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Hospital of Youjiang Medical University for Nationalities Baise 533000, Guangxi, China.

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a devastating bone disease characterized by avascular or aseptic necrosis of the femoral head, and alcohol consumption is reported one of the leading risks to this disease. Previous studies have linked Dickkopf-1 (DKK1) to the occurrence of ONFH, but the role of DKK1 in alcohol-induced ONFH (AONFH) has not been fully discussed. In this study, we found that the expression level of DKK1 was dramatically increased in serum and bone samples from AONFH patients, experimental AONFH rats, and cultured bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) with ethanol stimulation.

Treatment of Traumatic Femoral Neck Fractures with an Intramedullary Nail in Osteoporotic Bones.

Indian J Orthop 2021 Jun 11;55(3):621-628. Epub 2021 Mar 11.

ATORG-Aschaffenburg Trauma and Orthopaedic Research Group, Center for Orthopaedics, Trauma Surgery and Sports Medicine, Hospital Aschaffenburg-Alzenau, Am Hasenkopf 1, 63739 Aschaffenburg, Germany.

Purpose: Sufficient anchoring of intramedullary osteosynthesis in the femoral head in a femoral neck fracture is a challenge with increasing age of the patients and decreasing bone quality. For older patients with inferior bone quality, it has not been investigated whether the application of an intramedullary force carrier, as a minimally invasive and rapid intervention, can provide a considerable benefit and reduce the postoperative complication and lethality rate. This retrospective study aimed to investigate the stability and functionality after the acute treatment of a femoral neck fracture in osteoporotic bone using an intramedullary force carrier even with higher grade fracture types.

Atorvastatin Upregulates microRNA-186 and Inhibits the TLR4-Mediated MAPKs/NF-κB Pathway to Relieve Steroid-Induced Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head.

Front Pharmacol 2021 16;12:583975. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Guangdong Engineering Research Center for Translation of Medical 3D Printing Application, Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Medical Biomechanics, National Key Discipline of Human Anatomy, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Steroid-induced avascular necrosis of the femoral head (SANFH) is caused by the death of active components of the femoral head owing to hormone overdoses. The use of lipid-lowering drugs to prevent SANFH in animals inspired us to identify the mechanisms involving Atorvastatin (Ato) in SANFH. However, it is still not well understood how and to what extent Ato affects SANFH. Read More

Efficacy of orthobiologic adjuvants to core decompression for hip preservation in avascular necrosis hip.

J Hip Preserv Surg 2020 Aug 22;7(3):423-438. Epub 2020 Nov 22.

Department of Orthopaedics, PGIMER, Chandigarh 160012, India.

Head preserving modalities in avascular necrosis (AVN) hip are variably effective in early stages, and further options that could prevent head distortion and osteoarthritis are needed. Core decompression (CD) is the most commonly used surgery in the early stages of osteonecrosis with variable rates of success. The present review aimed to determine the effectiveness of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) or their combination with CD in early stages of AVN hip, prior to collapse of femoral head.

Morphological variants to predict outcome of avascular necrosis in developmental dysplasia of the hip.

Bone Joint J 2021 May;103-B(5):999-1004

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sophia's Children's Hospital, Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Aims: The most important complication of treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head, which can result in proximal femoral growth disturbances leading to pain, dysfunction, and eventually to early onset osteoarthritis. In this study, we aimed to identify morphological variants in hip joint development that are predictive of a poor outcome.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who developed AVN after DDH treatment, either by closed and/or open reduction, at a single institution between 1984 and 2007 with a minimal follow-up of eight years. Read More

Exosomes Secreted from Hypoxia-Preconditioned Mesenchymal Stem Cells Prevent Steroid-Induced Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head by Promoting Angiogenesis in Rats.

Biomed Res Int 2021 7;2021:6655225. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Orthopedics, The First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, Shaanxi Province 710061, China.

Recent studies have suggested that exosomes exert similar therapeutic effects to those of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in regenerative medicine and MSCs-derived exosomes exhibit therapeutic effects on steroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). Furthermore, reparative functions of exosomes from MSCs are enhanced by hypoxia treatment of the cells. However, there are no related reports about whether exosomes derived from hypoxia-preconditioned MSCs could show better therapeutic effects on steroid-induced ONFH. Read More

Autologous stem cell implantation with core decompression for avascular necrosis of the femoral head using a new device.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK.

Introduction: Autologous stem cell progenitor implantation into necrotic lesions of the femoral head has previously been described as a potential treatment for avascular necrosis (AVN), on the basis that there is a reduced number of functioning stem cells in the marrow within the necrotic segment. We present a case series of patients with AVN that underwent core decompression with autologous stem cell implantation using a new device.

More than 20° posterior tilt of the femoral head in undisplaced femoral neck fractures results in a four times higher risk of treatment failure.

Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Trauma Surgery, Leiden University Medical Centre, Albinusdreef 2, 2333 ZA, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Purpose: In this study, we aimed to determine the correlation between the preoperative posterior tilt of the femoral head and treatment failure in patients with a Garden type I and II femoral neck fracture (FNF) treated with the dynamic locking blade plate (DLBP).

Methods: Preoperative posterior tilt was measured in a prospective documented cohort of 193 patients with a Garden type I and II FNF treated with the DLBP. The correlation between preoperative posterior tilt and failure, defined as revision surgery because of avascular necrosis, non-union, or cut-out, was analyzed. Read More
