Longitudinal Evolution of Bone Microarchitecture and Bone Strength in Type 2 Diabetic Postmenopausal Women With and Without History of Fragility Fractures-A 5-Year Follow-Up Study Using High Resolution Peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2021 16;12:599316. Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research Group, Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, United States.

Introduction: Diabetic bone disease is characterized by an increased fracture risk which may be partly attributed to deficits in cortical bone quality such as higher cortical porosity. However, the temporal evolution of bone microarchitecture, strength, and particularly of cortical porosity in diabetic bone disease is still unknown. Here, we aimed to prospectively characterize the 5-year changes in bone microarchitecture, strength, and cortical porosity in type 2 diabetic (T2D) postmenopausal women with (DMFx) and without history of fragility fractures (DM) and to compare those to nondiabetic fracture free controls (Co) using high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT).

Report of an Otic Capsule Disrupting Fracture of the Temporal Bone: Visualization of Pneumolabyrinth and Functional Assessment.

Cureus 2021 Jan 2;13(1):e12425. Epub 2021 Jan 2.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Medical Centre, Hungarian Defence Forces, Budapest, HUN.

Blunt trauma of the head can result in temporal bone fracture. Different classifications exist, but from a functional perspective, to distinguish otic capsule sparing and otic capsule disrupting fractures is superior to the classic nomenclature. Disruption of the otic capsule is often associated with sensorineural hearing loss, vestibular dysfunction, cerebrospinal leakage, or even intracranial consequences. Read More

A Systematic Review of Cochlear Implantation in Temporal Bone Fractures and the Significance of Otic Capsule Involvement.

Otol Neurotol 2020 12;41(10):1309-1315

Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, Rochester.

Objective: Head trauma can cause deafness in cases with and without a skull base fracture. Anatomic disruption can occur with skull base fractures, but inner ear structures can also be damaged by the concussive forces of the trauma even without fracture. It is thought that negative prognostic indicators for successful cochlear implantation (CI) for hearing rehabilitation include fractures involving the otic capsule or ossification of the cochlea.

Is bone marrow edema syndrome a precursor of hip or knee osteonecrosis? Results of 49 patients and review of the literature.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2020 Jul;26(4):355-362

Department of Radiology, University Hospital, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Munich, Germany.

Purpose: Diagnosis of bone marrow edema syndrome (BMES) can be challenging. There is sometimes uncertainty about the correct diagnosis of BMES on morphologic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), since subchondral findings like lines and spots can be misinterpreted as "beginning" or "possible" avascular osteonecrosis (AVN). The aim of our study was to systematically assess the temporal course of BMES from first diagnosis on MRI until the end of clinical symptoms and the full disappearance of bone marrow edema (BME) to determine whether subchondral lines and spots detected in these patients can develop into osteonecrosis.

Radiographic Evaluation of Keel Bone Damage in Laying Hens-Morphologic and Temporal Observations in a Longitudinal Study.

Front Vet Sci 2020 12;7:129. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Clinical Radiology, Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

The keel bone of commercially kept laying hens is known to be frequently affected by morphologic changes such as fractures and deformations with important implications for animal welfare. To detect morphologic changes, various methods such as palpation, computed tomography, and ultrasound are available, though radiography allows for the greatest level of detail in combination with the most ease of use. To explore the benefits of radiography in providing objective data on keel fractures from the age of 22-61 weeks within a single laying period, the keel bones of 75 Lohmann Brown and 75 Lohmann Selected Leghorns were radiographed every 3 to 5 weeks.
