The data on 98 new patients with osteoblastoma were studied. The clinical features of pain, scoliosis, and neurologic deficit were largely consistent with those in previous reports. Osteoblastoma is usually a lytic lesion originating in the medulla of bones with matrix ossification and mild surrounding sclerosis. Osteoblastoma of the spine demonstrated(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence, extension and signal characteristics of fluid-fluid levels in a large series of 700 bone and 700 soft tissue tumors. Out of a multi-institutional database, MRI of 700 consecutive patients with a bone tumor and MRI of 700 consecutive patients with a soft tissue neoplasm were retrospectively reviewed(More)
To develop a scoring system for quantifying osteoarthritic changes of the knee as identified by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and to determine its inter- and intra-observer reproducibility, in order to monitor medical therapy in research studies. Two independent observers evaluated 25 consecutive MR examinations of the knee in patients with previously(More)
OBJECTIVE There are insufficient data on the effects of long-term intensive exercise in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We undertook this randomized, controlled, multicenter trial to compare the effectiveness and safety of a 2-year intensive exercise program (Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients In Training [RAPIT]) with those of physical therapy (termed(More)
Fifty-nine cases of lesions presenting in the patella were identified after review of the databases of four European bone tumour registries. Of the 59 cases, 46% were non neoplastic, 39% were benign and 15% were malignant. The commonest benign neoplasm was giant cell tumour (GCT) (11 cases). Younger patients were more likely to have a benign neoplasm.(More)
Enchondromatosis is a rare, heterogeneous skeletal disorder in which patients have multiple enchondromas. Enchondromas are benign hyaline cartilage forming tumors in the medulla of metaphyseal bone. The disorder manifests itself early in childhood without any significant gender bias. Enchondromatosis encompasses several different subtypes of which Ollier(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the association between changes in common sense models and changes in functional status over a 6-year follow-up in patients with osteoarthritis. DESIGN At baseline and follow-up, osteoarthritis outpatients (N = 241) recruited from a university medical center completed the Illness Perception Questionnaire-Revised (IPQ-R), the(More)
To describe the radiological findings of “Bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation”(BPOP)—otherwise known as Nora’s lesion, to describe the natural evolution of BPOP and to assess radiologically if BPOP is indeed part of a spectrum of reactive lesions including florid reactive periostitis and turret exostosis. Four experienced musculoskeletal(More)
Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) and fibrosarcoma (FS) of bone are rare malignant tumours and contentious entities. Sixty seven cases labelled as bone MFH (57) and bone FS (10) were retrieved from five bone tumour referral centres and reviewed to determine whether recent advances allowed for reclassification and identification of histological subgroups(More)
AIMS To define the histological criteria of primary angiosarcoma of bone. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-two angiosarcomas of bone in 23 males and 15 females were studied. Histological criteria were related to patients' outcome. Eleven patients had multifocal lesions. Lesions were located in the long and short tubular bones followed by the pelvis, spine and(More)
