AIM: There is controversy regarding the diagnosis and classification of vascular anomalies (VA). As torso and extremities are the second most common body part for presentation of VAs, musculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists play a central role in VA classification. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the awareness and clinical use of the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) classification by MSK radiologists. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A Web-based survey was designed and electronically sent to Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) members, with 3 questions on demographics and 7 questions on ISSVA classification use and knowledge...

In this study, details of the infraorbital nerve's (ION's) anatomical course variants were compared using computed tomography (CT), and relationships between the variants and fracture patterns in the orbital floor were investigated. Fifty-two normal individuals and 50 patients with unilateral isolated orbital floor fractures were enrolled in this study. Four measurements in normal individuals and five measurements in fracture patients were obtained in parasagittal sections. The anatomical variations of the ION were categorized into three types according to the classification by Ferences et al...

Background: Osteomyelitis is a complex disease. Treatment involves a combination of bone resection, antimicrobials and soft-tissue coverage. There is a difficulty in unifying a classification system for long bone osteomyelitis that is generally accepted. Objectives: In this systematic review, we aim to investigate the classification systems for long bone osteomyelitis that have been presented within the literature. By doing this, we hope to elucidate the important variables that are required when classifying osteomyelitis...

Accurate diagnosis of pathological brain images is important for patient care, particularly in the early phase of the disease. Although numerous studies have used machine-learning techniques for the computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) of pathological brain, previous methods encountered challenges in terms of the diagnostic efficiency owing to deficiencies in the choice of proper filtering techniques, neuroimaging biomarkers, and limited learning models. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is capable of providing enhanced information regarding the soft tissues, and therefore MR images are included in the proposed approach...

Many types of dorsal neoplasm of early infancy are described in literature ranging from benign to aggressive. Some are more common while others quite unusual. Here, we describe a newborn with a lumbosacral soft tissue mass. Positivity of S-100 and vimentin was compatible with the neural cell line and the high proliferation rate of major activity cells (biopsy Ki67 20%) suggests an aggressive nature. An exclusively surgical approach was chosen and no clinical or radiological signs of recurrence have been observed after 2 years of follow-up...

Intraosseous lipoma of the calcaneus is a benign lesion formed by mature adipose tissue. When the lesion is symptomatic, the most frequent presentation is localized pain and soft tissue swelling. Because these lesions can regress spontaneously, conservative treatment methods are recommended. Operative excision is mostly required for painful lesions and pathologic fractures. The data from 14 patients with calcaneal intraosseous lipoma, who had undergone surgery in our clinic, were evaluated retrospectively. Using Milgram's classification system, 9 lesions were classified as stage 1, 4 as stage 2, and 1 as stage 3...

Background Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) were introduced in Germany as a medico-economic classification system 13 years ago. In this analysis, we looked into the compensation for reconstructive plastic surgery after the excision of malignant head and neck skin tumours by DRGs. Material and methods Four main diagnoses (malignant melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, carcinoma in situ) at a maximum of 6 different locations in the head and neck were combined with the following procedures: excision and primary wound closure, excision with temporary soft tissue coverage, split-thickness or full-thickness skin grafting, local, free or regional pedicle flaps, distant flaps as well as combined procedures for coverage...

Benign, intermediate and malignant soft tissue tumors can be differentiated histologically. Furthermore, the tumors can be subdivided according to their linear differentiation. In the new World Health Organization (WHO) classification of soft tissue tumors from 2013 changes have been made relating to the allocation of known entities, e. g. undifferentiated sarcomas have been formed into a new subgroup and are no longer assigned to the fibrohistiocytic tumors. The term malignant fibrous histiocytoma has been replaced by the undifferentiated sarcoma...

Background: Soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) are a group of rare, heterogeneous and aggressive tumors, with high metastatic risk and relatively few efficient systemic therapies. We hypothesized that the Genomic Grade Index (GGI), a 108-gene signature previously developed in early-stage breast cancer, might improve the prognostic assessment of patients with early-stage STS. Patients and methods: We collected gene expression and clinicopathological data of 678 operated STS, and searched for correlations between the GGI-based classification and clinicopathological variables, including the metastasis-free survival (MFS)...

BACKGROUND: Open tibia fractures are commonly stratified by the Gustilo classification, an orthopedic grading system that does not incorporate the presence of arterial injury when limb perfusion is intact. In the authors' experience, however, the presence of arterial injury appears to negatively impact microsurgical outcomes. METHODS: In a retrospective review of 806 lower extremity reconstructions between 1979 and 2016, 361 soft-tissue flaps performed for Gustilo type IIIB/C coverage met inclusion criteria...

Recent findings suggest that vertebral osteophytes increase the resistance of the spine to compression. However, the role of vertebral osteophytes on the biomechanical response of the spine under fast dynamic compression, up to failure, is unclear. Seventeen human spine specimens composed of three vertebrae (from T5-T7 to T11-L1) and their surrounding soft tissues were harvested from nine cadavers, aged 77 to 92 years. Specimens were imaged using quantitative computer tomography (QCT) for medical observation, classification of the intervertebral disc degeneration (Thomson grade) and measurement of the vertebral trabecular density (VTD), height and cross-sectional area...

BACKGROUND: Radical cystectomy (RC) is a morbid surgery plagued by complications. Expenditures attributed to specific complications after RC is not well characterized. We sought to quantify the financial impact of complications after RC and their associations with respective 90-day costs. METHODS: We used the Premier Hospital Database to identify 9,137 RC patients (weighted population of 57,553) from 360 hospitals between 2003-2013. Complications were categorized according to Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Clinical Classifications...

REVIEW
F Gohlke, B Werner
TECHNIQUE: The treatment of bone defects in primary shoulder arthroplasty has evolved due to more detailed diagnostic tools, 3D planning and expanded indications for reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Glenoid bone defects combined with chronic posterior subluxation of the humeral head are gradually being treated by glenoid reconstruction and reverse implants even if the rotator cuff is still intact. The treatment of advanced bone loss due to glenoid loosening has been facilitated by bone augmentation using a cementless fixation as proposed by Norris...

V Zakeri, A J Hodgson
The purpose of this study was to investigate if the sounds generated during bone drilling could be used to classify between hard (cortical) and soft (cancellous) tissues. Bone drilling is performed in many surgical procedures throughout the world. Inadvertent deviation from the correct drill direction may result in injuries to sensitive anatomical structures such as nerve and vessels. Therefore, to increase the safety of such procedures, it is necessary to identify different bone tissues. The cortical and cancellous tissues of six bovine tibia pieces were drilled and the generated sounds were recorded...

BACKGROUND: The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) recently published the 8th edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. Major changes were made to the staging algorithm for retroperitoneal sarcoma; however, whether these changes improve staging system performance is questionable. METHODS: This retrospective cohort analysis of 3703 adult patients with retroperitoneal sarcoma in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database compares a novel staging system incorporating histologic subtype of sarcoma with current and prior AJCC soft tissue sarcoma staging systems using multiple statistical techniques...
