An Unrecognized Ligament and its Ossification in the Craniocervical Junction: Prevalence, Patient Characteristics, and Anatomic Evidence.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2021 Mar 15. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

B. Wu, W. Cui, T. Rong, D. Sang, B. Xiao, D. Wang, J. Zhang, B. Liu, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, China.

Background: In the craniocervical junction, the ligaments between the anterior foramen magnum and the anterior arch of the atlas are not well defined, and ossification of the ligaments in this region has rarely been reported. Characterizing the anatomy and ossification of these ligaments may help in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders in this region.

Questions/purposes: (1) What is the prevalence of an unrecognized ossification at the craniocervical junction in patients with cervical spine disorders, and what are the patient characteristics associated with this ossification? (2) Do patients with this ossification have a greater risk of ossification of other structures at the craniocervical junction or cervical spine? (3) Is there an unreported ligament at this ossified site?

Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of 578 hospitalized patients who underwent CT for cervical spine disorders between January 2016 and July 2020. Read More

Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) and a Possible Inflammatory Component.

Curr Rheumatol Rep 2021 Jan 26;23(1). Epub 2021 Jan 26.

Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) is considered a metabolic condition, characterized by new bone formation affecting mainly at entheseal sites. Enthesitis and enthesopathies occur not only in the axial skeleton but also at some peripheral sites, and they resemble to some extent the enthesitis that is a cardinal feature in spondyloarthritis (SpA), which is an inflammatory disease.

Recent Findings: We review the possible non-metabolic mechanism such as inflammation that may also be involved at some stage and help promote new bone formation in DISH. Read More
