Introduction: Stress fractures are more common in the weight-bearing bones of the lower limb and are particularly prevalent in athletes. Whereas, those of the upper limb are usually reported as unique events in rare circumstances. Case Report: We present a case of a 40-year-old White British female with neuromyelitis optica (NMO) who mobilized in a wheelchair and presented to our center in April 2016 with a week-long history of a hot, swollen, and unstable right forearm...

BACKGROUND: Atypical subtrochanteric fracture and femoral fracture have been considered to be rare complications related to long-term bisphosphonates use. A reduced bone turnover rate may lead to delayed bone healing. Limited data have revealed that teriparatide treatment may reverse the effect of bisphosphonates and be effective in bone healing. METHODS: We reviewed patients with atypical subtrochanteric and femoral fracture related to bisphosphonates use between January 2008 and December 2014...

Vertebral augmentation is a minimally invasive but sometimes technically challenging intervention typically reserved for the treatment of older patients with painful vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis or neoplasms. We report the successful treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures of the first lumbar vertebral body (L1) using kyphoplasty in a paraplegic young patient with multiple comorbidities. Despite the unusual and complicated clinical scenario, kyphoplasty was nonetheless performed with immediate and lasting pain relief...

Atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) are defined as atraumatic or low-trauma fractures located in the subtrochanteric or diaphyseal sites. Long-term bisphosphonates (BPs) are administered to prevent fragility fractures in patients with primary osteoporosis or collagen diseases who are already taking glucocorticoids (GCs). Long-term BP use is one of the most important risk factors for AFFs. Its pathogenesis is characterized by severely suppressed bone turnover (SSBT), but whether the characteristics of patients are different regarding to location of fracture site remains unknown...

Context: Denosumab, an inhibitor of receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand, is an approved treatment for giant cell tumour of bone (GCTB) in adults and 'skeletally mature' adolescents. Safety concerns include oversuppression of bone remodelling, with risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw [ONJ] and atypical femur fractures during treatment in adults, and rebound hypercalcaemia after treatment cessation in children. To date, ONJ has never been reported in children or adolescents...

Chrisropher Peake, Alex Trompeter
This reports a case of a low-energy ipsilateral femoral shaft and neck fracture in a 69-year-old woman with vitamin D deficiency, who was taking long-term steroids and bisphosphonates. This is a fracture more commonly associated with a high-energy trauma. However, with an ageing global population and an increasing prevalence of bone insufficiency, we predict the incidence of this presentation to increase. Long-term bisphosphonate therapy has been associated with bone insufficiency and an increased rate of delayed union, adding to the complexity of management in these patients...

Fractures of the capitellum are rare injures of the elbow rarely seen in adolescents. We report a case of a 14 year-old boy who sustained a bilateral Hahn-Steinthal type fracture of his capitelum humeri. To our knowledge, such bilateral injury has not been reported before in teenagers. This paper reviews the literature regarding the epidemiology, classification and management of this rare pediatric capitellar fracture.

Gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia (GDD; OMIM #166260) is an ultra-rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by heterozygous mutation in the anoctamin 5 (ANO5) gene and features fibro-osseous lesions of the jawbones, bone fragility with recurrent fractures, and bowing/sclerosis of tubular bones. The physiologic role of ANO5 is unknown. We report a 5-year-old boy with a seemingly atypical and especially severe presentation of GDD and unique ANO5 mutation. Severe osteopenia was associated with prenatal femoral fractures, recurrent postnatal fractures, and progressive bilateral enlargement of his maxilla and mandible beginning at ~2months-of-age that interfered with feeding and speech and required four debulking operations...

This case presentation describes a 50-year-old healthy woman who developed left sided hip pain while training for the Boston Marathon. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) demonstrates a stress fracture of the left iliac body. This injury is unique in that it did not occur in the setting of low bone mineral density and it does not fall into the current published radiographic categorization based on location of injury. This case illustrates an uncommon and atypical bone stress injury in an endurance athlete. It should be considered in the differential diagnosis of runners presenting with hip or lumbopelvic pain...

BACKGROUND: The Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) has been surveying approximately 3000 orthopedic surgery hospitals and clinics with inpatient facilities nationwide to collect information on atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) and patient characteristics since 2010. The present study aims to examine radiographic images and clarify the relationship between radiographic and patient characteristics of patients with AFF and treatment status. METHODS: The study involved 1996 facilities certified as clinical training sites by the JOA and 912 clinics with inpatient facilities affiliated with the Japanese Clinical Orthopaedic Association (JCOA)...

OBJECTIVE: Bisphosphonate (BP) drug holidays are recommended to lower the risk of rare adverse events, such as atypical femoral fractures and osteonecrosis of the jaw. However, there are minimal data on the optimal duration of these holidays. Our aim was to determine the clinical and laboratory parameters associated with increased fracture risk in patients on BP drug holiday. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of 401 patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis who began a BP drug holiday from 2004 to 2013...

Antiresorptive drugs, such as amino-bisphosphonates and denosumab (Dmab), have dominated osteoporosis therapies for over 20 years. Since osteoporosis is a chronic disease, antifracture therapy could continue for the rest of a patient's life. Phase III clinical trials for antiresorptive drugs assessed relatively small patient populations for short durations and excluded up to 80% of patients who might seek osteoporosis therapy in clinical practice. Postmarketing reports based upon millions of patient-years and long-term (>5 years) clinical administration have associated some previously unknown, rare adverse events with antiresorptive use including osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) and atypical femur fractures (AFFs)...

Atypical root resorption (ARR) is the condition of a superficial and circumferential resorption process along the lateral and/or apical root surface of a primary maxillary incisor. This case series demonstrates longitudinal observations of six patients with atypical root resorption following root-fractured primary incisors. The characteristics of atypical root resorption were different from pathologic root resorption.

INTRODUCTION: Loading stress due to individual variations in femoral morphology is thought to be strongly associated with the pathogenesis of atypical femoral fracture (AFF). In Japan, studies on AFF regarding pathogenesis in the mid-shaft are well-documented and a key factor in the injury is thought to be femoral shaft bowing deformity. Thus, we developed a CT-based finite element analysis (CT/FEA) model to assess distribution of loading stress in the femoral shaft. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A multicenter prospective study was performed at 12 hospitals in Japan from August 2015 to February 2017...

BACKGROUND: Although atypical femoral fracture (AFF) occurs more frequently in patients taking bisphosphonates and longer treatment is associated with higher risk, the causal relationship between AFF and bisphosphonates has not been established. Most patients with AFF have osteoporosis that is being treated with bisphosphonates, but we are not aware of any reports regarding the areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and discordance between the T-scores of the femur and spine in such patients...

Atypical aortic coarctation (AAC) has been reported to occur anywhere along the aorta, except for the ascending aorta. The associated symptoms include hypotension in the lower half of the body, secondary hypertension in the upper half of the body, and heart failure. Here we present an 80-year-old Asian woman complaining of progressive exertional dyspnea. She was diagnosed with acute decompensated heart failure and kidney injury due to severely calcified stenosis of the thoracoabdominal aorta, the so called AAC...
