Analysis of a Preliminary microRNA Expression Signature in a Human Telangiectatic Osteogenic Sarcoma Cancer Cell Line.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jan 25;22(3). Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Biomedical Sciences, University of Florence, 50134 Florence, Italy.

Telangiectatic osteosarcoma (TOS) is an aggressive variant of osteosarcoma (OS) with distinctive radiographic, gross, microscopic features, and prognostic implications. Despite several studies on OS, we are still far from understanding the molecular mechanisms of TOS. In recent years, many studies have demonstrated not only that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in OS tumorigenesis, development, and metastasis, but also that the presence in high-grade types of OS of cancer stem cells (CSCs) plays an important role in tumor progression.

Fluid-fluid Levels in Musculoskeletal Tumor Imaging.

Curr Med Imaging 2021 ;17(2):157-165

First Department of Orthopaedics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, Athens, Greece.

Fluid-fluid levels result from the separation of two fluids of differing densities within a cavernous space with the boundary between the two layers running in a horizontal plane at 90 degrees to the direction of gravity. Magnetic resonance imaging is the most sensitive imaging modality to identify fluid-fluid levels. Although the most common bone lesions containing fluid-fluid levels are aneurysmal bone cyst and telangiectatic osteosarcoma, fluid-fluid levels can be observed in a wide variety of bone and soft tissue lesions.

Is Core Needle Biopsy Reliable in Differentiating Between Aggressive Benign and Malignant Radiolucent Bone Tumors?

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2018 03;476(3):568-577

V. Hegde, Z. D. C. Burke, H. Y. Park, S. D. Zoller, D. Johansen, B. V. Kelley, N. M. Bernthal, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California-Los Angeles, Santa Monica, CA, USA B. D Levine, K. Motamedi, L. L. Seeger, Department of Radiological Sciences, University of California-Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA N. C. Federman, Department of Pediatrics, University of California-Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, USA S. D. Nelson, Department of Pathology, University of California-Los Angeles, Santa Monica, CA, USA.

Background: Although there is widespread acceptance of core needle biopsy (CNB) for diagnosing solid tumors, there is reluctance by some clinicians to use CNB for aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) as a result of concerns of safety (bleeding, nerve injury, fracture, readmission, or infection) and reliability, particularly to rule out malignant diagnoses like telangiectatic osteosarcoma. This is especially true when CNB tissue is sent from an outside hospital, where the technique used to obtain the tissue may be spurious.

Questions/purposes: (1) Is CNB effective (provided adequate information to indicate appropriate surgical treatment without further open biopsy) as an initial diagnostic test for ABC? (2) Is CNB accurate (pathology consistent with the subsequent definitive surgical pathologic diagnosis) in differentiating between benign lesions such as primary or secondary ABCs and malignant radiolucent lesions such as telangiectatic osteosarcoma? (3) What are the complications of CNB? (4) Is there any difference in the effectiveness or accuracy of CNB performed at outside institutions when compared with a referral center?

Methods: A retrospective study of our musculoskeletal tumor board pathology database (1990-2016) was performed using search criteria "aneurysmal bone cyst" or "telangiectatic osteosarcoma. Read More

Current management of aneurysmal bone cysts.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2016 Dec;9(4):435-444

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, Los Angeles, 1250 16th St, Suite 2100, Santa Monica, CA, 90404, USA.

Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are benign bone lesions arising predominantly in the pediatric population that can cause local pain, swelling, and pathologic fracture. Primary lesions, which constitute roughly two thirds of all ABCs, are thought to be neoplastic in nature, with one third of ABCs arising secondary to other tumors. Diagnosis is made with various imaging modalities, which exhibit characteristic features such as "fluid-fluid levels," although biopsy is critical, as telangiectatic osteosarcoma cannot be excluded based on imaging alone.
