Increased Patellar Volume/Width and Decreased Femoral Trochlear Width Are Associated With Adolescent Patellofemoral Pain.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 Dec;476(12):2334-2343

R. M. Smith. F. T. Sheehan, Functional and Applied Biomechanics, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA B. P. Boden MD, The Orthopaedic Center, Rockville, MD, USA.

Background: Patellofemoral pain is one of the most common forms of knee arthralgia in adolescent females. Unlike in adults, in whom the etiology of patellofemoral pain is considered to be multifactorial (eg, altered bone shape and musculoskeletal dynamics), the etiology of adolescent patellofemoral pain has been historically attributed to overuse. Although it is highly plausible that adolescent patellofemoral pain results from excessive maltracking, as suggested by recent research, an increase in patellar, relative to femoral, size could also contribute to patellofemoral pain through altered cartilage stresses/strains, resulting in overloading of the subchondral bone.

Effectiveness of interventions for treating apophysitis in children and adolescents: protocol for a systematic review and network meta-analysis.

Chiropr Man Therap 2018 23;26:41. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

5Centre for Clinical Epidemiology, Jewish General Hospital, McGill University, Ottawa, Canada.

Background: Overuse injuries are reported to be more common than acute trauma in children and adolescents, causing pain and reduced function. The most common is apophysitis - a traction injury to the apophysis in growing individuals. The duration of symptoms reported in the literature is between 6 weeks to 6 months or more. Read More

Intra-articular Large Ossicle Associated to Osgood-Schlatter Disease.

Cureus 2018 Jul 19;10(7):e3008. Epub 2018 Jul 19.

Orthopaedic Surgery, CHA University, Seongnam, KOR.

Osgood-Schlatter disease (OSD) is known as a self-limiting condition but surgical excision of the ossicles may be required in adults resistant to conservative treatments. The ossicle associated to OSD is generally small and located outside the joint near the tibial tubercle; however, large or intra-articular ossicle has been reported rarely. Here, we report an unusual case of OSD with a separated, large-sized ossicle that protruded into the knee joint and treated by arthroscopy-assisted excision of the ossicle. Read More

Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) is a painful, growth-related overuse condition of the tibial tuberosity, leading to inflammation of the patellar ligament at the tibial tuberosity. It primarily affects young adolescents, athletic population, and usually, resolves with age or skeletal maturity. Therapy is usually conservative, with surgery indicated in a minority of cases.

Overuse Injuries in the Pediatric Population.

Sports Med Arthrosc Rev 2016 Dec;24(4):150-158

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Division of Sports Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA.

Athletic overuse injuries are becoming an increasingly common entity in the active pediatric population. The prevalence of these injuries may be attributed to the combination of an underdeveloped musculoskeletal system, increased participation in competitive sport at a younger age, and increased duration and intensity of training. Many of these injuries may go unreported and/or undiagnosed, as they do not all result in time lost from sports, and are not always appreciated on imaging. Read More

Osseous Injury Associated With Ligamentous Tear of the Knee.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2016 Nov 4;67(4):379-386. Epub 2016 Aug 4.

Department of Radiology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

One of the most common knee injuries is ligament tear, which may initially manifest as an osseous injury in radiographs. Radiologists should therefore be able to recognize ligament tears of the knee as osseous abnormalities in images. This review focuses on the imaging features of knee ligament injuries and their related osseous injuries: anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear with Segond fracture; associated marrow contusion; ACL avulsion fracture; posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tear with osseous avulsion of the ligament including arcuate sign; reverse Segond fracture; PCL avulsion fracture; medial collateral ligament tear with Pellegrini-Stieda disease; lateral collateral ligament tear with avulsion fracture of the fibular head; and patellar ligament injuries with Osgood-Schlatter and Sinding-Larsen-Johansson.

Introduction: A number of studies have examined the risk factors for Osgood-Schlatter disease (OSD). Studies on risk factors have not necessarily accurately demonstrated the risk factors of this disease because they were not prospective cohort studies or the populations in the studies were not categorized by the skeletal maturation of the tibial tuberosity. We can identify the precise risk factors for OSD by performing a prospective cohort study of a group of asymptomatic patients in particular times of adolescent using ultrasonography. Read More
