Treatment of posttraumatic lumbar interspinous ligament calcification with partial resection of spinous processes and calcified interspinous ligaments: case report.

J Neurosurg Spine 2018 Dec;30(3):362-366

The authors report on the first surgical treatment for traumatic interspinous ligament calcification, with significant radiographic and symptomatic improvements at long-term follow-up. Heterotopic ossification occurs following traumatic injury but does not typically affect the interspinous ligaments. While these ligaments can calcify with age, this is rarely seen in patients younger than 50 years of age. Read More

Treatment of heterotopic ossification of the hip with use of a plaster cast: case report.

Rev Bras Ortop 2018 Nov-Dec;53(6):805-808. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE), Recife, PE, Brazil.

Heterotopic ossification can be defined as the formation of bone in tissues that have no ossification properties, such as in muscles and connective tissue of a periarticular region, without invasion of the joint capsule. This pathology usually has a benign course, but it can cause a reduction in the range of joint movement and hamper the rehabilitation process. Its etiology is still unknown and it usually is originated from posttraumatic complications, affecting 10-20% of patients with traumatic brain injury. Read More

Posttraumatic Heterotopic Ossification of the Hip.

J Orthop Trauma 2018 Aug;32 Suppl 1:S18-S19

Division of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, NYU Langone Health, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, New York, NY.

Introduction: Posttraumatic heterotopic ossification (HO) of the hip frequently follows acetabular fracture and hip surgery and can become symptomatic, with significant pain and limited range of motion (ROM). Definitive treatment may require surgical excision, which can result in serious complications if not planned and executed appropriately.

Methods: Surgical excision of posttraumatic hip HO requires appropriate indications, preoperative planning, and intraoperative guidance using fluoroscopy to maximize excision of HO and minimize complications. Read More

The reverse Sauvé-Kapandji procedure for the treatment of (posttraumatic) proximal radioulnar synostosis.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2018 Aug 8;28(6):1225-1229. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery Unit, Hospital Universitario HM Montepríncipe, Avenida Montepríncipe, 25, 28660, Boadilla del Monte, Madrid, Spain.

Proximal radioulnar synostosis is a rare but highly disabling posttraumatic complication in periarticular elbow injuries. Surgical treatment is an option for functionally limiting proximal radioulnar synostosis; however, the approach can endanger local neurovascular structures, especially if the synostosis affects the level of the bicipital tuberosity. We report two cases of proximal radioulnar synostosis with a preoperative prono-supination range of motion of 0° and 15° treated by a reverse Sauvé-Kapandji procedure resecting a 1-cm section of the radial shaft distal to the bicipital tuberosity and leaving the synostosis in place.

Depletion of Mast Cells and Macrophages Impairs Heterotopic Ossification in an Acvr1 Mouse Model of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.

J Bone Miner Res 2018 Feb 3;33(2):269-282. Epub 2018 Jan 3.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a clinical condition that often reduces mobility and diminishes quality of life for affected individuals. The most severe form of progressive HO occurs in those with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP; OMIM #135100), a genetic disorder caused by a recurrent heterozygous gain-of-function mutation (R206H) in the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) type I receptor ACVR1/ALK2. In individuals with FOP, episodes of HO frequently follow injury. Read More

Mast cell inhibition as a therapeutic approach in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP).

Bone 2018 04 26;109:259-266. Epub 2017 Aug 26.

Department of Medicine, Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, United States. Electronic address:

Background: Episodic flare-ups of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) are characterized clinically by severe, often posttraumatic, connective tissue swelling and intramuscular edema, followed histologically by an intense and highly angiogenic fibroproliferative reaction. This early inflammatory and angiogenic fibroproliferative response is accompanied by the presence of abundant mast cells far in excess of other reported myopathies.

Results: Using an injury-induced, constitutively-active transgenic mouse model of FOP we show that mast cell inhibition by cromolyn, but not aprepitant, results in a dramatic reduction of heterotopic ossification. Read More

[18F]NaF PET/CT scan as an early marker of heterotopic ossification in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva.

Bone 2018 04 18;109:143-146. Epub 2017 Aug 18.

Department of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine, VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare genetic disease with a progressive course characterized by episodically local flare-ups, which often but not always leads to heterotopic bone formation (HO). Recently, we showed that [18F]NaF PET/CT may be the first tool to monitor progression of a posttraumatic flare-up leading to new HO, which was demonstrated in a patient with FOP who underwent a maxillofacial surgery. This paper evaluates [18F]NaF PET/CT as a marker of FOP disease activity, comparing its use with other imaging modalities known in literature. Read More

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA.

Brain injury specialists are experienced providers able to identify and treat the unique medical complications after moderate-severe traumatic brain injury, including posttraumatic seizures, paroxysmal sympathetic hyperactivity, spasticity, hydrocephalus, agitation, neuroendocrine dysfunction, heterotopic ossification, venous thromboembolism, and cranial nerve dysfunction. Owing to the potential negative impact on outcome if left untreated, identification and appropriate treatment is essential. An additional role of the brain injury specialist is to educate family about potential medical complications and anticipated outcomes after brain injury. Read More

Posttraumatic intra-articular heterotopic ossification of the shoulder joint in a 15-month-old boy.

Skeletal Radiol 2016 Apr 4;45(4):559-65. Epub 2015 Nov 4.

Department of Orthopaedics Surgery, Chonbuk National University Medical School, Research Institute for Endocrine Sciences and Research Institute of Clinical Medicine of Chonbuk National University-Biomedical Research Institute of Chonbuk National University Hospital, 567 Baekje-ro, Dukjin-gu, Jeonju, 561-756, Republic of Korea.

Heterotopic ossification (HO) can result from a single severe injury, repeated microtrauma, central nervous system injury, extensive burns, or muscular bleeding due to hemophilia. Although relatively rare in childhood and extremely rare within a joint, HO should be included in the differential diagnosis of an intra-articular mass when indicated by clinical, radiographic, and histologic findings. Here, we report a posttraumatic intra-articular HO of the shoulder joint in a 15-month-old boy without underlying hematologic disease. Read More

Complications of Elbow Trauma.

Hand Clin 2015 Nov 25;31(4):683-91. Epub 2015 Aug 25.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University Hospital and Clinics, 300 Pasteur Drive, Room R144, Stanford, CA 94305-5341, USA.

The elbow is a highly congruent trochoginglymoid joint allowing motion in both flexion-extension and pronosupination across 3 articulations. Therefore, treatment of fractures of the elbow can be technically challenging to manage, even after initial surgery. The posttraumatic elbow is prone to complications such as stiffness associated with heterotopic ossification, instability or subluxation (posterolateral rotatory instability and varus posteromedial instability patterns), and wound complications.

Total Hip Arthroplasty After Acetabular Fracture Is Associated With Lower Survivorship and More Complications.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2016 Feb;474(2):392-8

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Department of Surgery, St Michael's Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: Despite modern fracture management techniques allowing for near anatomic reduction of acetabular fractures, there continues to be a risk of posttraumatic arthritis and need for total hip arthroplasty (THA). Few well-controlled studies have compared THA after acetabular fractures with THAs performed for other indications in terms of survivorship or complications, and none, to our knowledge, present 10-year survivorship data in this setting.

Questions/purposes: (1) How does the 10-year survival of THA compare between those patients who underwent THA after an acetabular fracture and those who underwent THA for primary arthritis or avascular necrosis (AVN)? (2) Is there an increased risk of serious complications like infection, dislocation, and aseptic loosening as well as heterotopic ossification associated with a THA performed after a previous acetabular fracture?

Methods: This retrospective case-control study compared findings of patients who underwent THA after acetabular fracture versus a matched cohort of patients who had received a primary THA for primary osteoarthritis or AVN. Read More

Surgical hip dislocation is a reliable approach for treatment of femoral head fractures.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2015 Dec;473(12):3744-51

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Berne, Berne, Switzerland.

Background: Femoral head fractures are rare injuries; incongruency and instability are indications for surgical intervention. Anterior, posterior, and transtrochanteric surgical approaches have been proposed, but the exposure is limited with classical approaches. Surgical hip dislocation allows for a 360° view of the head and may facilitate a reduction in selected head fractures, but to our knowledge, few studies have reported on the results with this technique.

A surgical approach algorithm for transverse posterior wall fractures aids in reduction quality.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2014 Nov;472(11):3338-44

Boston Medical Center, 850 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA, 02118, USA.

Background: Transverse posterior wall fractures are difficult to treat and historically have been associated with stiffness, posttraumatic arthritis, and pain, which correlate with the reduction. The Kocher-Langenbeck approach is used most often, whereas the extended iliofemoral approach has been reserved for more complex injury patterns. The latter approach has substantially more risks.

Terrible triad injuries of the elbow: does the coronoid always need to be fixed?

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2014 Jul;472(7):2084-91

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Orthopaedic Specialists - UPMC, 9104 Babcock Boulevard, Suite 5113, Pittsburgh, PA, 15237, USA.

Background: The "terrible triad" of the elbow is a complex injury that can lead to pain, stiffness, and posttraumatic arthritis if not appropriately treated. The primary goal of surgery for these injuries is to restore stability of the joint sufficient to permit early motion. Although most reports recommend repair and/or replacement of all coronoid and radial head fractures when possible, a recent cadaveric study demonstrated that type II coronoid fractures are stable unless the radial head is removed and not replaced.

Extremity War Injuries VIII: sequelae of combat injuries.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2014 Jan;22(1):57-62

The 2013 Extremity War Injury symposium focused on the sequelae of combat-related injuries, including posttraumatic osteoarthritis, amputations, and infections. Much remains to be learned about posttraumatic arthritis, and there are few circumstances in which a definitive arthroplasty should be performed in an acutely injured and open joint. Although the last decade has seen tremendous advances in the treatment of combat upper extremity injuries, many questions remain unanswered, and continued research focusing on improving reconstruction of large segmental defects remains critical.
