A Comparison of Cervical and Thoracolumbar Fractures Associated with Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis-A Nationwide Multicenter Study.

J Clin Med 2020 Jan 12;9(1). Epub 2020 Jan 12.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Surgical Science, Tokai University School of Medicine, 259-1193 Kanagawa, Japan.

In diffuse idiopathic hyperostosis (DISH), the ankylosed spine becomes susceptible to spinal fractures and spinal cord injuries due to the long lever arms of the fractured segments that make the fracture extremely unstable. The aim of this retrospective multicenter study was to examine the differences in DISH-affected spine fractures according to fracture level. The data of 285 cases with fractures of DISH-ankylosed segments diagnosed through computed tomography (CT) imaging were studied and the characteristics of 84 cases with cervical fractures were compared to 201 cases with thoracolumbar fractures.

Obesity and calcification of the ligaments of the spine: a comprehensive CT analysis of the entire spine in a random trauma population.

Spine J 2019 08 20;19(8):1346-1353. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Baylor Scott & White Health/Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, Address: 2401 S 31(st) St, Temple, TX 76508, USA.

Background Context: Obesity, which is currently surging to epidemic levels within the United States, has been linked to hyperostotic conditions like diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). Excess adipose tissue and insulin-resistance may cause a systemic increase in serum levels of proinflammatory cytokines and these signals can affect bone metabolism. Spinal ligaments and discs may have receptors for these signaling molecules. Read More

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 computed tomography (CT) is usually the initial imaging modality, magnetic resonance imaging (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 noncontiguous fractures.

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.

Oropharyngeal dysphagia as an uncommon manifestation of an osteoarticular disease.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Jan 24;12(1). Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Otolaryngology, Centro Hospitalar de Vila Nova de Gaia Espinho EPE, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.

We report a case of a 76-year-old Caucasian woman who was referred to our department due to progressive dysphagia. We performed a flexible nasofibrolaryngoscopy that demonstrated the presence of a non-pulsatile mass in the right posterior wall of the hypopharynx. Cervical CT scan revealed that the mass represented a bulging of the hypopharynx wall produced by osteophytes along the cervical segment (C3-C4 and C4-C5) of the rachis. Read More

CT-Based Evaluation of Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis in Adult Population; Prevalence, Associations and Interobserver Agreement.

J Clin Densitom 2020 Jan - Mar;23(1):44-52. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Dow Institute of Radiology, Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, Pakistan.

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH), being an asymptomatic condition, is generally discovered incidentally on imaging and it has not received much attention for research on clinical grounds. We assessed the prevalence of DISH, its associated factors, and interobserver agreement for computed tomography (CT)-based diagnosis of DISH. CT scans of chest, abdomen, and pelvis performed for various clinical indications were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

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

The Unstable Spine: A Surgeon's Perspective.

Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2018 Dec 13;39(6):618-629. Epub 2018 Oct 13.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery & Rehabilitation, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE.

Instability of the spine is a complex clinical entity that exists on a wide spectrum encompassing many aspects of spinal pathology including traumatic, neoplastic, infectious, and degenerative processes. The importance of determining stability is paramount in the decision-making process regarding the need for operative or nonoperative care. Defining clinical instability can be a challenging and requires careful attention to the pathology involved, findings of necessary imaging, and a thorough clinical exam. Read More

Ankylosing Spinal Disease-Diagnosis and Treatment of Spine Fractures.

World Neurosurg 2019 Mar 23;123:e162-e170. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technical University Munich, Munich, Germany.

Background: In patients with ankylosing spinal disease, including ankylosing spondylitis and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, even low-impact trauma can lead to complex injuries. The injuries seem to be highly unstable and associated with greater mortality rates compared with the general spine trauma population.

Methods: We reviewed the medical records of a consecutive series of 41 patients (34 men, 7 women) with ankylosing spinal disease and unstable traumatic spine injuries who were admitted to our department from 2007 to 2016. 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

Aortic pulsation prevents the development of ossification of anterior longitudinal ligament toward the aorta in patients with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) in Japanese: Results of chest CT-based cross-sectional study.

J Orthop Sci 2019 Jan 16;24(1):30-34. Epub 2018 Sep 16.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Shiga University of Medical Science, Tsukinowa-cho, Seta, Otsu, Shiga, 520-2192, Japan.

Background: The development and etiology of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) were far from complete understanding. Even the precise mechanism of the development of its typical right-sided ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament (OALL) frequently compared to 'flowing candle wax', a hallmark of DISH, remains unknown.

Methods: The participants of this study were 261 individuals (31 females and 230 males) diagnosed as DISH according to the criteria established by Resnick and Niwayama extracted from a consecutive 3013 patients who have undergone chest CT for the examination of pulmonary diseases in our institute.
