BACKGROUND Heterotopic ossification (HO) is the formation of mature, lamellar bone within soft tissues other than the periosteum.

The following factors are presumed to place a patient at higher risk: 60 years of age or older, male, previous HO, hypertrophic osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, prior… CONTINUE READING
