1/28. Acute ischemia of the lower limb. An unusual complication of Paget's disease of bone.

    Paget's disease of bone (osteitis deformans) is one of the most common skeletal diseases, characterised by bone distortion and the loss of interior structure. Asymptomatic evolution is usual, so diagnosis is likely to be made only when complications of the disease appear. This paper describes such a diagnosis made in a patient with acute lower limb ischemia caused by the compression of the superficial femoral artery between the adductor muscles and an exostosis of the femur.

2/28. Early experience with total knee replacement.

    This paper presents a review of two years' experience with the geometric total knee replacement. The results of 23 arthroplasties in 22 patients are discussed. Relief of pain was consistent and dramatic, movement was increased postoperatively in only three patients, but imporvement in overall function occurred in 20 of the 22 patients. There was one failure requiring arthrodesis. In this patient, six months after surgery the medial tibial condyle collapsed and the polyethylene tibial component fractured. This complication has not been reported before. Early results are encouraging. Total knee joint replacement is a useful procedure in advanced arthritis when arthrodesis is the only alternative.

3/28. Increased accumulation of Tl-201 in monostotic Paget's disease of the patella: evaluation with quantitative analysis.

    Monostotic Paget's disease of the patella was detected with Tc-99m MDP and Tl-201 scans. Diffuse intense uptake of MDP in the left patella was observed on the blood-pool and late phases of the bone scan. Tl-201 imaging was performed to differentiate a malignant process and showed diffuse marked accumulation at the same site. Semiquantitative analysis of the patella region on both Tc-99m MDP and Tl-201 scans did not support a diagnosis of cancer. Radiographs showed the features of Paget's disease of the bone. Findings of a pathologic evaluation were compatible with the diagnosis of osteitis deformans. This case represents the unusual skeletal involvement of monostotic Paget's disease of the bone in the patella. Tl-201 accumulation in the Paget's lesion was suggested to be caused by increased metabolic activity of the lesion but was not indicative of a malignant process.

4/28. prostate cancer and coexisting incidental Paget's disease--report on a case.

    prostate cancer coexisting with asymptomatic Paget's disease (osteitis deformans) may be difficult to stage. The skeletal lesions of both prostate cancer and Paget's disease may closely resemble each other, as appearing on imaging. A case of clinically localized prostate cancer coexisting with incidental Paget's disease is herein reported. prostate cancer and coexisting incidental Paget's disease both need careful evaluation and close follow-up of the skeleton by imaging, because there is a risk of the former involving the skeleton at low clinical stages and low PSA serum levels, as well as the latter developing osteosarcoma.

5/28. The articular manifestations of Paget's disease of bone. A case report.

    Disorders of joints are commonly associated with Paget's disease of bone but are often disregarded or attributed to the underlying Pagetic condition. The authors evaluated a 69-year-old man with extensive Paget's disease of bone, degenerative arthritis, calcific periarthritis, and gout. The degenerative arthritis and calcific periarthritis of the shoulders was originally mistaken for Paget's disease of the proximal humerus. The wrist arthritis was attributed to Paget's disease until evaluation of surgical pathology specimens showed intraarticular gouty granulomas. In evaluating and treating a patient with Paget's disease of bone, the orthopedic surgeon should be aware that the successful treatment of associated articular disorders may require therapeutic measures in addition to those used in treating the Paget's disease.

6/28. Paget disease of bone. diagnosis and indications for treatment.

    BACKGROUND: Paget disease was first described in 1877 by Sir James Paget. It is a focal disorder of bone remodelling, involving increased bone resorption and formation. The aetiology is uncertain but both environmental and genetic factors are thought to be involved in pathogenesis. OBJECTIVE: This article outlines the clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment of Paget disease. DISCUSSION: Paget disease is associated with musculoskeletal pain, significant disability and impaired quality of life. Complications include pathological fracture, arthritis in adjacent joints, hearing loss, other neurological complications, heart failure and, rarely, osteosarcoma. Recent clinical trial data has demonstrated histological and radiological improvements in bone of patients treated with bisphosphonates. There is little data evaluating the long term effect of therapy on the risk of complications, however, restoration of normal bony architecture offers the prospect that complications related to deformity and increased bone fragility might be reduced by effective therapy.

7/28. Paget's disease of the bone in a Chinese woman.

    Paget's disease, otherwise known as osteitis deformans, is an unusual condition in the Oriental population. We report a case of Paget's disease in a Chinese woman, incidentally diagnosed on a bone scan. This was confirmed by clinical history, biochemistry and imaging findings using other modalities. Although bone scans are commonly performed to diagnose traumatic occult fractures and bone metastases, they can also be used to diagnose metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporotic fractures, and to evaluate Paget's disease. It can also diagnose acute fractures secondary to renal osteodystrophy and osteomalacia.

8/28. Osteolytic monostotic Paget's disease of the fifth lumbar vertebra. A case report.

    Osteolytic monostotic Paget's disease or osteitis deformans of the fifth lumbar vertebra occurred in a 55-year-old woman. An isolated lytic process involving the entire vertebral body and posterior elements and an open biopsy showed extensive remodeling with cement lines, myelofibrosis, and osteoclastic resorption typical of Paget's disease.

9/28. Rhinological manifestations of Paget's disease of bone (osteitis deformans).

    Two cases of Paget's disease of bone are presented in which nasal symptoms were prominent. The clinical and radiographic features of Paget's disease of the maxilla and ethmoids are described. Medical and surgical treatment is discussed with the recommendation that surgery is kept to a minimum and covered by prophylactic antibiotics to prevent osteomyelitis. Sudden enlargement of the involved bones should raise the suspicion of malignancy.

10/28. Paget's disease in the hand: correlation of magnetic resonance imaging with histology.

    A 62-year-old white woman was seen initially with a 4-month history of swelling over the dorsum of her wrist and thumb pain at the basal joint. Radiographs revealed pantrapezial arthritis and a marked increase in the radiodensity of the capitate. Tomograms showed slight enlargement of the capitate, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a dramatic decrease in the signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted images. A biopsy of the capitate was done at the time of thumb carpometacarpal joint arthroplasty. Active Paget's disease was diagnosed. It is postulated that loss of marrow fat in active Paget's disease decreased the T1- and T2-weighted signals in a manner similar to processes, such as Gaucher's disease and osteonecrosis.
