The records of 226 patients (sixty-seven who were managed at our institution and 159 who were identified from the consultation files) who had had a parosteal osteosarcoma were reviewed. The criteria for diagnosis were that, roentgenographically, the lesion had arisen from the surface of the bone and that, histologically, the tumor was well differentiated(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine factors including treatment modalities which influence survival in patients with osteosarcoma of the head and neck. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective clinicopathologic study of 27 patients with osteosarcoma of the head and neck. METHODS The clinical charts and pathology slides were reviewed on 27 patients who had osteosarcoma of the head(More)
A review of 46 cases of solitary plasmacytoma of bone was undertaken in an attempt to better define the clinical features and prognostic indicators associated with this disease. Criteria for inclusion in the study included the following: (a) solitary lytic bone lesion on skeletal survey; (b) histologic confirmation of the lesion; and (c) bone marrow(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysmal bone cysts are benign, non-neoplastic, highly vascular bone lesions. The purpose of this study was to describe the prevalence, the clinical presentation, and the recurrence rate of aneurysmal bone cysts of the pelvis and sacrum and to examine the diagnostic and therapeutic options and prognosis for patients with this condition.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Unplanned excisions of soft-tissue sarcomas of the extremities occur commonly. Our goal was to evaluate the presence of residual disease, the treatment outcomes as they relate to local and distant recurrence and 5-year survival, and the limb functional outcomes in patients with unplanned sarcoma excision who were treated with(More)
Fifty patients at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) from 1935 to 1985 met the histologic criteria for extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma. Forty-two had soft tissue primaries without bony involvement and formed the basis for this retrospective study of the clinical behavior and management of extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma. There were 19 male and 23 female patients(More)
Nineteen patients who had a giant-cell tumor of the pelvis were managed from 1944 through 1989. Thirteen of the patients were in the third or fourth decade of life. The ileum was involved in thirteen patients; the pubis, in two; the ischium, in three; and the pubis and ischium, in one. Five patients who had an initial Stage-II (active) lesion were managed(More)

OBJECTIVE Review the evidence regarding methods to prevent wrong site operations and present a framework that healthcare organizations can use to evaluate whether they have reduced the probability of wrong site, wrong procedure, and wrong patient operations. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Operations involving the wrong site, patient, and procedure continue(More)
Osteoarthritis is a highly prevalent and debilitating joint disorder. There is no effective medical therapy for the condition because of limited understanding of its pathogenesis. We show that transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) is activated in subchondral bone in response to altered mechanical loading in an anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT)(More)
