No vascular calcification on cardiac computed tomography spanning asfotase alfa treatment for an elderly woman with hypophosphatasia.

Bone 2019 05 28;122:231-236. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO 63110, USA. Electronic address:

Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is the inborn-error-of-metabolism characterized enzymatically by insufficient activity of the tissue-nonspecific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) and caused by either mono- or bi-allelic loss-of-function mutation(s) of the gene ALPL that encodes this cell surface phosphomonoester phosphohydrolase. In HPP, the natural substrates of TNSALP accumulate extracellularly and include inorganic pyrophosphate (PPi), a potent inhibitor of biomineralization. This PPi excess leads to rickets or osteomalacia in all but the most mild "odonto" form of the disease. Read More

Do we need to stabilize and treat the os acromiale when performing reverse shoulder arthroplasty?

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2019 04 13;105(2):225-228. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, KOÇ University School of Medicine, Sariyer, Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: The purpose of this study is to investigate the incidence of os acromiale in patients who had reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) for rotator cuff tear arthropathy and the effect of presence of os acromiale on the functional results.

Hypothesis: We hypothesize than in the presence of os acromiale, the contraction strength of the deltoid would decrease due to the dynamic downward depression of the bony fragment leading to less favorable clinical results.

Material And Method: A total 46 patients with a mean age of 70. Read More

Raman spectroscopy applications in rheumatology.

Lasers Med Sci 2019 Jun 21;34(4):827-834. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

2nd Department of Internal Medicine, Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Raman spectroscopy is a type of vibrational spectroscopy based on the inelastic scattering of photons, which has attracted much attention due to its potential clinical application in rheumatology. In this review, we discuss the typical spectral features of cartilage, bone, synovial fluid, and pathologic crystal deposits, as well as methods of amplifying the Raman signal of biofluids such as drop-coating deposition Raman spectroscopy. Further, applications of Raman and drop-coating deposition Raman spectroscopy in osteoarthritis are described, highlighting the clinical potential of these methods. Read More

Hip Involvement in Patients With Calcium Pyrophosphate Deposition Disease: Potential and Limits of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound.

Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken) 2019 12 30;71(12):1671-1677. Epub 2019 Oct 30.

Università Politecnica Delle Marche, Ancona, Italy.

Objective: To preliminarily explore the diagnostic potential of ultrasound (US) in detecting calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystal deposits at the hip joint in a cohort of patients with CPP deposition disease (CPPD) who were previously evaluated by conventional radiography (CR) and to assess the sensitivity and specificity as well as the agreement between US and CR in the evaluation of hip CPP crystal deposits.

Methods: Fifty consecutive patients with definite CPPD and 40 age/sex/body mass index-matched disease control subjects who had undergone hip CR within the previous 6 months were enrolled. Bilateral hip US examination was carried out to assess the presence of CCP crystal deposits at the acetabular labrum fibrocartilage and at the femoral head's hyaline cartilage. Read More
