I'm pursuing medicine and I'd like to know the effect of fusion of iliac crest on the height. To what extent its fusion increases the height of a man?

None: When the iliac crest fuses (fuses all the way), that means the skeleton has finished growing in height. The iliac crest itself does not cause one to be taller or shorter (or at least not by any noticeable amount). Height is affected by growth in the long bones (such as the leg bones) plus growth in the spine. Read more

Explain dx. Of hypertrophic changes of right iliac crest.

Explain dx. Of hypertrophic changes of right iliac crest.

Spur: This sounds like a bone spur possibly from some old mechanical irritation. It isn't significant unless there are generalized bone changes. Hypertrophic changes are seen in the joints of people with wear and tear arthritis (osteoarthritis). A radiologist can give you more of an explanation, however. Read more

Many causes exist: But the possibility that it may be an appendicitis, kidney stone, or ovarian problem among others would be reason enough to have it checked out if it lasts more than an hour or so. If there is an associated fever, it should be checked out right away. Read more

No: You grow in your long bones.Nothing of significance to your height happen with the pelvis at that bony center. If an xray of your wrist and hand (long bones) shows open centers, you may have more growth left. If that wrist xray shows you are at a bone age of 18, you are done. Read more

IT band?: The iliotibial band, or itb, runs along the outer thigh from the iliac crest to the outside of the knee joint and is a very frequent source of hip pain in runners. The itb acts to stabilize the pelvis, so any source of continued imbalance between your right and left legs can lead to tightness and pain on the side that is effectively made longer. A physical medicine doctor can help sort this out. Read more

I was told I have a 3.4cm mxed sclerotic lytic lesion on my right iliac crest and to have an MRI done. What does it mean?

More information: Mixed lesion consists of dense bone and areas of bone with reduced density. Mr suggested to better define contents of lesion, surrounding margins, and changes in the soft tissues around bone, and changes in adjacent bone marrow. A lot of times these lesions according to the imaging results eventually have to be biopsied to be specific about diagnosis, and confirm benign or malignant character. Read more

Lumbar spine: Pain in the iiac crest region especially towards the back is more than likely related to your lumbar spine. We all develop some degree of arthritis and degenerative changes in our axial spine. Poor posture along with degeneration and desiccation of the lumbar disc tissue leads to nerve root impingement which can cause referred pain down your back into the legs depending on the nerve root affected.

Inches: It is unlikely, but not impossible, that your height will increase after age 18. If it does increase it won't be by much. How tall are the men - father and brothers - in your family? If they have markedly outgrown your height it would not hurt to see a bone doctor. Read more
