Distal femoral intraosseous ganglia: cause or result of a degenerative process: 17-year follow-up of a case.
Summary of "Distal femoral intraosseous ganglia: cause or result of a degenerative process: 17-year follow-up of a case."
We report a case of recurrent, resistant, huge, multilocular intraosseous ganglia cyst localized at the distal femur. A 25-year-old man presented with left knee pain. Imaging studies and histological analysis confirmed the diagnosis. Treatment was curettage and bone grafting. Long-term follow-up revealed degenerative changes at radiographs and MRI. This case may contribute to make distinction between degenerative subchondral cyst and intraosseous ganglia cyst and help to understand pathogenesis of this entity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Ganglia of the sympathetic nervous system including the paravertebral and the prevertebral ganglia. Among these are the sympathetic chain ganglia, the superior, middle, and inferior cervical ganglia, and the aorticorenal, celiac, and stellate ganglia.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
A progressive, degenerative joint disease, the most common form of arthritis, especially in older persons. The disease is thought to result not from the aging process but from biochemical changes and biomechanical stresses affecting articular cartilage. In the foreign literature it is often called osteoarthrosis deformans.
Ganglia of the parasympathetic nervous system, including the ciliary, pterygopalatine, submandibular, and otic ganglia in the cranial region and intrinsic (terminal) ganglia associated with target organs in the thorax and abdomen.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the hip joint which usually appears in late middle or old age. It is characterized by growth or maturational disturbances in the femoral neck and head, as well as acetabular dysplasia. A dominant symptom is pain on weight-bearing or motion.
Intraosseous cavernous hemangioma is an uncommon benign vascular tumor. A 21-year-old man presented with a small painless swelling of the left foot's long toe. X-ray examination showed an outgrowing b...
PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to report the clinical results for a patient with a post-traumatic osteoarticular defect of the lateral femoral condyle treated with unicondylar osteoarticular...
Aim. The intraosseous route provides access to the systemic circulation in an emergency situation when other forms of vascular access are unavailable and there is an urgent need for fluid or drug ther...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of patients treated with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) for progression of arthritis after distal femoral varus osteotomy. Twenty-two consecutive...
In this trial the investigators seek to determine if injecting cord blood cells directly into the bone marrow (intraosseous injection), rather than infusing them intravenously, can improve...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the rate of fracture healing and fracture union, repaired with the LISS device, will be as good as or better than the usual fracture fixat...
Basal ganglia are involved in the control of motor, cognitive and emotional behaviours. The aim of this study is to precisely evaluate patients with basal ganglia focal lesions both with o...
Total hip replacement surgery is considered to be a very successful surgical procedure for the treatment of degenerative joint disease. The purpose of the study is to evaluate a large siz...
This is a multi-center, prospective randomized clinical study to evaluate the clinical outcome of subjects with degenerative disc disease (DDD) treated with ALIF and supplemental posterior...
