Ultrasound imaging of the humeral capitellum: a cadaveric study.

J Orthop Sci 2014 Nov 8;19(6):907-12. Epub 2014 Sep 8.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Science, 1 Kawasumi, Mizuho-cho, Mizuho-ku, Nagoya, 467-8601, Japan,

Background: Ultrasound is suitable for routine examinations of capitellar osteochondritis dissecans because it can visualize both the subchondral bone and the overlying articular cartilage non-invasively. The radial head interferes with the sonographically visible area of the articular surface of the humeral capitellum, although the precise extent of this is currently unknown. This study aimed to investigate the visible area of the humeral capitellum using both anterior and posterior ultrasonographic scans. Read More

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Staging to Evaluate the Stability of Capitellar Osteochondritis Dissecans Lesions.

Am J Sports Med 2014 Aug 9;42(8):1972-7. Epub 2014 May 9.

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

Background: Treatment for capitellar osteochondritis dissecans (COCD) lesions is usually based on their stability from the bony floor after arthroscopic or open direct observation. Thus, a noninvasive means of lesion stability assessment by use of imaging is desirable to preoperatively determine treatment strategy.

Purpose: To evaluate our modified MRI staging system for COCD, we compared the results of MRI staging with the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) classification for lesion stability. Read More

Preoperative imaging criteria for unstable osteochondritis dissecans of the capitellum.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2013 Apr;471(4):1137-43

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Yamagata University Faculty of Medicine, Yamagata, Japan.

Background: The stability of an osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesion of the humeral capitellum may be determined by intraoperative probing with unstable lesions being displaceable. Although preoperative imaging is used to diagnose and determine treatment of these lesions, it is unclear whether unstable lesions on imaging correspond to those found intraoperatively.

Questions/purposes: We therefore examined the concordance between preoperative imaging and intraoperative instability and examined the imaging features of the patients who healed without surgery. Read More
