The degree of mineralization of bone matrix is an important factor in determining the mechanical competence of bone. The remodeling and modeling activities of bone cells together with the time course of mineralization of newly formed bone matrix generate a characteristic bone mineralization density distribution (BMDD). In this study we investigated the(More)
Black women have a lower incidence of vertebral and hip fractures than white women, possibly due to differences in skeletal and mineral metabolism. One suggested mechanism is that blacks have decreased skeletal sensitivity to parathyroid hormone (PTH). To test this hypothesis, we infused h(1-34)PTH in healthy premenopausal black (n = 15) and white (n = 18)(More)
We report an unusual case of extranodal Rosai-Dorfman disease presenting in a 36-year-old man with lesions of bone, subcutaneous tissue of the arm and maxillary sinus mucosa unassociated with lymphadenopathy or systemic symptoms. These lesions appeared metachronously within a 6-month period. The diagnostic light microscopic and immunohistochemical findings(More)
We previously demonstrated an increase in cancellous bone volume and trabecular number in patients with mild primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). To test the hypothesis that this increase is due to preservation of cancellous bone architecture, we conducted a trabecular strut analysis using a new method that measures trabecular connectivity. Iliac crest(More)
BACKGROUND We conducted a prospective, randomized study to evaluate the effect of flexor tenosynovectomy as an adjunct to open carpal tunnel release for the treatment of idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome and reviewed the histological characteristics of the flexor tenosynovium to identify possible correlations between histopathology and symptoms. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To determine if a symptomatic accessory navicular bone, a normal variant, displays a pattern of altered signal intensity on magnetic resonance (MR) images indicative of an abnormality that could account for the patient's foot pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Both feet were imaged in seven patients with an accessory navicular bone on radiographs and(More)
The classic bone disease of primary hyperparathyroidism, osteitis fibrosa cystica, was characterized by subperiosteal bone resorption, osteopenia, and "brown tumors." Since the description of this skeletal disorder, the clinical profile of primary hyperparathyroidism has evolved markedly. The disease today is often characterized by no more than asymptomatic(More)
A patient with classic clinical and biochemical features of tumor-induced osteomalacia (hypophosphatemia, phosphaturia, and undetectable serum concentrations of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D]) was studied before and after resection of a benign extraskeletal chondroma from the plantar surface of the foot. Presurgical laboratory evaluation was notable(More)
Several studies have demonstrated that cancellous bone mass and architecture are preserved in postmenopausal women with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). To investigate the mechanism(s) that could account for this observation, we analyzed features of bone formation in 19 postmenopausal women with PHPT by bone histomorphometry. The results were compared(More)
