Four patients with intraosseous lipomas were studied with magnetic resonance imaging. The imaging features and histology of each tumor were compared. Magnetic resonance imaging was very helpful in establishing a pathologic diagnosis. If a severe degree of involution was present, then the magnetic resonance findings could be ambiguous, making diagnosis more(More)
The overexpression of HER-2/neu and p53 has been associated with poor outcome in many neoplasms. Their role in patients with osteosarcoma is unclear. We studied the expression of HER-2/neu and p53 in 22 osteosarcoma samples (from 20 patients--2 had locally recurrent disease) biopsied at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) from(More)
PURPOSE Our objective was to examine the MR characteristics of synovial sarcoma and determine the frequency of a nonaggressive imaging appearance. METHOD Fifteen patients with histologically confirmed cases of synovial sarcoma and prior MR examinations were seen. Retrospective analysis of imaging features included assessment of size, margins, homogeneity,(More)
Successful placement of the distal interlocking screws into the Grosse-Kempf nail is a demanding procedure due in part to deformation of the nail during insertion and to inaccuracy of the targeting device supplied with the system. The authors suggest an alternative approach. After placement of the nail in a tibia or femur, a Kirschner wire (K-wire) is(More)
Current methods of treating advanced patients with metastatic periacetabular disease are complex and result in high complication rates. The purpose of this study was to show whether the implantation of the saddle prosthesis would serve as an additional tool to help treat metastatic disease in these patients. From 1991 to 2003, 20 patients with advanced(More)
This 50-year-old woman presented with progressive pain in the left thigh. Radiographs showed a 9 x 6 cm soft-tissue mass located at the lateral border of the left femur. Magnetic resonance (MR) examination showed an eccentric, nonhomogeneous, soft-tissue mass abutting the femur. The preoperative differential diagnosis was schwannoma, low-grade neurogenic(More)
The purpose of this study is to delineate the magnetic resonance (MR) appearance of a granular cell tumor (GrCT) of the extremity and to correlate the imaging appearance with the microscopic findings. A retrospective review of five patients with a histopathologic diagnosis of GrCT and pre-operative MR imaging of the neoplasm was done. The images were(More)
Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a benign proliferative process of unknown origin that may cause extensive bone and joint destruction. Patients with this condition typically present with symptoms of mild discomfort and associated stiffness of the involved joint; however, the spectrum of presentations is broad. Although pigmented villonodular synovitis(More)
Seventeen children aged newborn to 14 years underwent major through-bone amputations or revision at our two institutions. Ten patients (group 1) had primary autogenous epiphyseal transplants taken from the amputated limb and used to cap the open medullary canal of the residual limb. Seven patients (group 2) did not have epiphyseal transplants. Nine of 10(More)
