Causes Of Congenital Vertical Talus
Radial head: congenital dislocation can be and is often a spontaneous difference that just occurs however sometimes it is associated with a syndrome such as foot and hip disorders, variations in the forearm and radius that can be associated with anemias and other congenital issues so certainly be evaluated to see if it is an isolated issue. Often no rx is needed despite reduced motion of elbow or forearm ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multifactorial.: Genetic, environmental, infectious, metabolic reasons or even developmental accidents can cause birth defects. Taking Folic Acid at 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life could prevent 95% of neural tube defects and up to 75% of cardiac defects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Interval bony consolidation of the L5 pars fractures bilaterally. Coronal alignment is normal, exception of positional leaning to the left. explain?
Ok: So, you initially had fractures in an area of the spine knows as the pars interarticularis, consolidation suggests they have now healed. The alingnment if the spine when viewed from the back is normal. I would not hesitate to go through your study with the person that ordered it as well. ...Read more
What is the cause of vertical ridges of finger nails leading to vertical split of nail? Any treatment?
Are vertebral crush fractures caused by the collapse of weakened vertebrae? What causes the collapse?
Yes: Two variables are bone strength and compressive energy applied the weaker the bone the less energy required to crush vertebra low energy fractures are in weak bone ...Read more
Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head require a surgery?
Trauma: I have seen this in a kid who fell over his day roughhousing, which was the only somewhat innocent cause i could think of. The injury implys a twisting form of trauma.I suppose a kid who stuck his leg in a hole & fell over could do it, but the possibility of inflicted trauma must be considered. ...Read more
Non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx what is non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx and what will happen woith treatment
There : There are three bones in the little ("pinky") toe (some folks only have two), and they are called phalanges (the pleural of "phalanx"). The one closest to the foot is the proximal phalanx, the one closest to the end of the toe is the distal phalanx, and the one in the middle is called.... Well, it's the middle phalanx. The diaphysis of a long bone (these are all considered "long" bones even though they're not really all that long) is the middle section of the bone. Transverse means sideways, and fracture means break. So to translate med-speak to english (google should think of doing something like this), you have a sideways fracture in the bone closest to the foot in your pinky toe in the middle of the bone. Non-displaced means the pieces are lined-up nicely, and there is no need to "reduce" it (put the pieces back in alignment). So this is really good news for you.... You don't need to have the thing put back in place, and the fracture is in the middle of the bone, so it doesn't cross or involve a joint, which means you're not gonna get arthritis in the toe later on (at least not from this fracture). Bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal, and since the 5th toe has it's own motion during the gait cycle, you really can't tape a 5th toe to a 4th toe. And there is no need to put a cast on for a toe fracture. So just keep your walking to a minimum for the next 2 months or so. Now's not the best time to do your christmas shopping... In case you have that planned for this weekend like i do... And you'll probably be more comfortable in a shoe with a stiff sole, because bending the toe with every step is going to cause that little piggy to go wee-wee-wee all the way home. How'd i do? ...Read more
Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head with extensive bone marrow edema require a surgery?
Likely, eventually!: It sounds like you probably have some avascular necrosis with subchondral collapse. Unfortunately, the controversial treatments don't usually work once collapse has started. You're likely, eventually, going to need to have a hip replacement. You should see a hip specialist to go over your options at this point. ...Read more
Can't answer: In general with osteoporosis bone loss you lose bone density in both the horizontal struts and the vertical trabeculae. The cause of the bone loss, the resorption canals are in all of the trabecular bones horizontal and vertical. Normal bone turnover does this also but in osteoporosis these resorption canals are increased in number and this leads to increased the bone loss. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes it could: Osteochondrodysplasias are a group of hereditary disorders in which bone or cartilage grows abnormally, so that the skeleton develops abnormally. Many types of osteochondrodysplasia cause dwarfism. Achondroplasia is the most common of the many types of short-limbed dwarfism. ...Read more
Unknown: The heart is a very complex organ. We still do not fully understand how the normal heart develops in the fetus. We understand even less about what causes the heart to develop abnormally. It is likely that there are multiple genetic and environmental factors that contribute to abnormal cardiac development. ...Read more
Falls in older folk: The greatest predictor for hip fracture is age. Older people are at much higher risk of fall, are more likely to injure themselves on falling and are more likely to have reduced Bone Mineral Density further increasing the likelihood of fracture. Specifically, physical frailty, reduced mobility, cognitive impairment, poor eyesight, medical morbidity, poly-pharmacy, predispose to falls in elderly. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Patchy sclerosis in talar dome after undisplaced verticle talus body frx. No joint involved. What is the possibility of collapse nd how to protect it?
PWB with CAM Walker: Patchy sclerosis is decreased vascularity in those spots. We need to monitor for increase in the size of the patch, w/c would be concerning for avn of the talus. Possiblity of collapse depends on patch size. (less likely if patch is small).How to protect? By wearing a cam walker and/or crutches. Need to check periodically with a mri. If the patch increases, see a foot & ankle specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
