99mTc-diphosphonates bone scintigraphy for vitality evaluation in cleft palate.

Cleft of the lip, palate and alveolus are congenital oro-maxillofacial malformation with an established treatment protocol. At present, there is great interest in the alveolar bone grafting procedures that involve the use of platelet-rich-plasma (PRP), to enhance bone formation and specifically to promote bone graft healing in head and neck tissues regeneration. The aim of this retrospective case ...

Prostate transmembrane protein androgen induced 1 is induced by activation of osteoclasts and regulates bone resorption.

Osteoclasts derived from hematopoietic cells are activated on bone surface. To resorb bone, osteoclasts release acid and lysosome acid hydrolase via membrane transport. Prostate transmembrane protein androgen-induced (Pmepa)1 is a type I transmembrane protein that regulates proliferation, migration, and metastasis of cancer cells. Because recent reports showed that Pmepa1 is involved in membrane t...

Vertebral solitary bone plasmacytoma in a young adult with Trisomy 21: A case report.

Solitary bone plasmacytoma (SBP) are rare lesions, accounting for less than 5% of all plasma cell proliferations. We describe a case of a 21-year-old female with Trisomy 21 presenting with cauda equina compression from an SBP.

Implant planning in a case with Sotos Syndrome.

Sotos syndrome it is usually transmitted by autosomal dominant inheritance. It is characterized by overgrowth with advanced bone age, macrocephaly, characteristic facial appearance, and learning difficulties. Mandibular prognathism, agenesis, and high-arched palate are the most common oral findings. The treatment of a 28-year-old man with Sotos syndrome is reported. Patient had many dental absence...

The effect of biologic agents on bone homeostasis in chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases.

Osteoporosis (OP) and increased fracture risk are widely observed comorbidities in chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases (CIRDs). Improved knowledge of the immune/inflammatory pathways, which characterise the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and seronegative spondyloarthropathies (SpA), such as ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), have provided the link between ...

Role of anoctamin 5, a gene associated with gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia, in osteoblast and osteoclast differentiation.

Anoctamin 5 (Ano5) mutations are responsible for gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia, a rare skeletal syndrome. Despite the close linkage of Ano5 to bone remodeling, the molecular mechanisms underlying the role of Ano5 in bone remodeling remain unknown. In this study, we investigated whether Ano5 regulates osteoblast or osteoclast differentiation to maintain normal bone remodeling. Downregulation of Ano5 e...

Body composition and bone mineral density in childhood.

Body mass compartments may have different directions of influence on bone accrual. Studies of children are limited by relatively small sample sizes and typically make strong assumptions of linear regression.

Mechanistic modelling of Radium-223 treatment of bone metastases.

Despite the effectiveness of RaCl for treating patients with symptomatic bone metastatic disease, its mechanisms of action are still unclear. Even established dosimetric approaches differ considerably in their conclusions. In silico tumour models bring a new perspective to this as they can quantitatively simulate the interaction of α-particles with the target(s). Here, we investigated three diffe...

Multiple integrin ligands provide a highly adhesive and osteoinductive surface that improves selective cell retention technology.

Among various bone tissue engineering strategies, selective cell retention (SCR) technology has been used as a practical clinical method for bone graft manufacturing in real time. The more mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are retained, the better the osteoinductive microenvironment provided by the scaffold, which in turn promotes the osteogenesis of the SCR-fabricated bone grafts. Integrin receptors ...

The facile synthesis of copper oxide quantum dots on chitosan with assistance of phyto-angelica for enhancing the human osteoblast activity to the application of osteoporosis.

Osteoblasts are an important key factor for the pathogenesis of several bone-related diseases, notably in osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disorder categorized based on the bone mineral density (BMD) and an alteration in the bone micro-architecture had been considered as the major determinant for increasing the fracture risk. The available medicine for curing the osteoporosis shows a minimal or no ...

Ultrasound Bone Fracture Sensing and Data Communication: Experimental Results in a Pig Limb Sample.

Approximately 6.3 million fractures occur each year in the United States alone. Accurately monitoring the progression of fracture healing is essential to be able to advise patients when it is safe to return to normal activity. The most common method used to confirm and monitor fracture healing is the acquisition of multiple radiographic images over the many months required for healing. This imagin...

Correlation between vertebral bone microstructure and estimated strength in elderly women: An ex-vivo HR-pQCT study of cadaveric spine.

A vertebral fracture is the most common complication of osteoporosis, and various factors are involved in its occurrence. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of trabecular and cortical bone microstructure on vertebral strength using high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT).

Injectable PLGA microspheres with tunable magnesium ions release for promoting bone regeneration.

Magnesium ions (Mg) are bioactive and proven to promote bone tissue regeneration, in which the enhancement efficiency is closely related to Mg concentrations. Currently, there are no well-established bone tissue engineering scaffolds that can precisely control Mg release, although this capability could have a marked impact in bone regeneration. Leveraging the power of biodegradable microspheres to...

Calcioic acid: In vivo detection and quantification of the terminal C24-oxidation product of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and related intermediates in serum of mice treated with 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D.

Calcitroic acid, the excretory form of vitamin D, is the terminal product of a 5-step pathway catalyzed by CYP24A1, commencing with C24-hydroxylation of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25-(OH)D). Catabolism of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OH-D) proceeds via analogous steps culminating in calcioic acid; however this C23-truncated acid has not been reported in the circulation. It has recently been shown that ...

Barotraumatic blowout fracture of the orbit after sneezing: Cone beam CT demonstration.

A 40-year-old man with no history of trauma or previous sinus surgery complained sudden right diplopia after vigorous sneezing. The patient was submitted elsewhere to a MRI study for persisting diplopia, with inconclusive findings. One week later the patient was submitted to a maxillofacial cone beam CT (CBCT) in our Institution. A blowout fracture of the right orbital floor and lateral orbital wa...

Administrative healthcare data applied to fracture risk assessment.

Fracture risk scores generated from population-based administrative healthcare data showed comparable or better discrimination than the Fracture Risk Assessment Tool (FRAX) scores computed without bone mineral density for predicting incident major osteoporotic fracture. Administrative data may be useful to identify individuals at high fracture risk at the population level.

Cranioplasties following craniectomies in children-a multicenter, retrospective cohort study.

Complications following pediatric cranioplasty after craniectomy with either autologous bone flaps or cranial implants are reported to be common, particularly bone flap resorption. However, only sparse data are available regarding cranioplasty strategies, complications, and outcomes. This manuscript describes a Canadian-Dutch multicenter pediatric cohort study with autografts and cranial implant c...

Annual Injection of Zoledronic Acid Improves Bone Status in Children with Cerebral Palsy and Rett Syndrome.

Osteoporosis is a common complication of cerebral palsy and Rett's syndrome. It is responsible for multiple fractures, bone pain, and impaired quality of life. In case of Rett's syndrome, a specific dysfunction of osteoblasts causes bone fragility. We observed the effects of annual zoledronic acid (ZA) infusion in a cohort of children with cerebral palsy and Rett's syndrome. 27 children under 18 ...

Skeletal fragility: an emerging complication of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is an emerging cause of skeletal fragility. Mechanism of bone damage are probably multifactorial in line with the different skeletal phenotypes that can be found in clinical practice. A structured approach to clinical management of bone metabolic complication in EDS is proposed.
