Assessment of Skeletal Maturity and Prediction of Adult Height (TW2 Method)
This book describes the Tanner-Whitehouse (TW) approach to bone age determination and presents the new TW2 standards and presents separate standards for boys and girls that recognize systematic differences between the sexes and the fact that girls are not simply more mature boys.
The clinical and genetic spectrum of the Holt-Oram syndrome (heart-hand syndrome)
Clinical and genetic studies suggest odds greater than 10(16):1 that the genetic defect for Holt-Oram syndrome is present on the long arm of chromosome 12 (12q2) and Mutations in a gene on chromosome 12q2 can produce a wide range of disease phenotypes characteristic of the Holt- Oram syndrome.
The hand in radiologic diagnosis
The author and his collaborators have gathered data about various diseases as they affect the hand for the goal that this information be readily available for reference in one source, and the book has a good balance of congenital and acquired disorders.
Ulnar variance in children — standard measurements for evaluation of ulnar shortening in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, hereditary multiple exostosis and other bone or joint disorders in childhood
These measurements change little with age and may be helpful in establishing shortening of the ulna which may be seen in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, hereditary multiple exostosis, or other bone and joint diseases with childhood onset.
Metacarpophalangeal pattern profiles in the evaluation of skeletal malformations.
Comparison of metacarpophalangeal pattern profiles is a more sensitive index for detecting similarity of hand radiographs than is simple inspection of the radiograph.
Metacarpophalangeal length in the evaluation of skeletal malformation.
The use of bone lengths in hand syndromes of chromosomal, genetic, and endocrine origin are described and standards for metacarpal and phalangeal lengths by row and ray are presented.
Bone measurement in the differential diagnosis of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
Increased or decreased bone formation and bone loss, resulting in the clinical appearance of deficient bone or reduced bone tissue, may be indicated by measurements of (a) total tubular bone width,
Imaging of epiphyseal injuries.
There have been many advances in the diagnosis and treatment of epiphyseal injuries in the 30 years since the publication of the landmark article by Drs Robert Salter and William Harris, and changes to the original Salter-Harris classification system have been proposed.
Arthropathy of neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID/CINCA)
These findings suggest that the arthropathy of NOMID is the result of abnormal endochondral bone growth, and whether this deformity is triggered by inflammation early in development or by CIAS1 mutations causing abnormal chondrocyte apoptosis is needed to determine.
The pattern of shortening of the bones of the hand in PHP and PPHP--A comparison with brachydactyly E, Turner Syndrome, and acrodysostosis.
Pattern profiles showed that those for PHP and PPHP are almost identical, and are similar to that seen in acrodysostosis, except for the much smaller size of the bones seen in the latter condition.
