What conditions can cause decreased bone marrow?

What conditions can cause decreased bone marrow?

Many diseases can do: Radiation and chemotherapy are common causes. Cancer can get into the bone marrow and replace it, thus crowding the bone marrow cells and prevent normal function.

Can boxing cause bone cancer?

Can boxing cause bone cancer?

No: As a certified ringside physician, I have trained with and worked with many amateur and professional boxers over the last 15 yrs, and thankfully none of them have had bone cancer! Bone fractures yes, but not bone cancer! This does not mean boxers cannot develop bone cancer, but the cancer has nothing to do with the fact that they are boxers. Hope that answers your question! ...Read more

Can bone marrow transplantation cause early aging?

Can bone marrow transplantation cause early aging?

Not likely.: This is usually done by pbsc harvest or peripheral blood stem cell harvest, after being administered a shot of CSF or colony stimulating factor to help get them in the blood. Then they are administered to the recipient in hopes that the graft will take. Although there might be some side effects with this, most notably from the recipient, like gvhd, etc., aging does not appear to be one of them. ...Read more

Can amyloidosis cause a hypoplastic bone marrow?

No: I would look for a different cause. Some amyloidosis (famously amyloidosis al, made from light chains) is caused by a subtle or not-so-subtle proliferation of plasma cells; this may be treated with marrow suppressors. In an older person, "hypoplastic marrow" may be from sampling a place where marrow was a bit scant; the blood picture's key here. Your physicians know more. Good luck. ...Read more

How does rods placed into the bone effect bone marrow? If bone marrow loss is a result of this condition, would that also cause anemia?

How does rods placed into the bone effect bone marrow?  If bone marrow loss is a result of this condition, would that also cause anemia?

Probably not: Much. In the common situation where a rod is placed in the femur to stabilize a serious fracture there would be effacement of some bone marrow, but not enough in of itself to cause a deficit in rbc production leading to anemia. The fracture itself and the surgery could result in low HGB shortly after the injury. ...Read more

Which type of avn is more dangerous, lead to collapse of talus bone. Patchy avn or diffuse avn ? How to care it ?

All avn is not good: Avascular necrosis means loss of blood supply to that area. Patchy or diffuse doesn't matter, except that patchy might indicate that blood supply is starting to return to the area. When the bone doesn't get the blood supply, the bone starts to demineralize making it appear "patchy" at first. If blood supply is not restored, the calcium in the bone will continue to be absorbed and collapse. ...Read more
