Temporary endothelial gaps in the extending tips of growing metaphyseal vessels were suggested as the location of bacterial passage from the blood stream into the metaphysis.
Micro-CT analysis of the metaphyseal region of the tibia showed that there was no significant difference in TV, consistent with the cortical bone data.
The characteristic radiographic features include: (i) delayed epiphyseal ossification and irregular metaphyses of the long bones with small capital femoral epiphyses, short femoral necks and irregular, flared metaphyseal borders, and small pelvis and poorly modelled acetabulae with irregular margins that may be sclerotic, especially in older individuals; (ii) significant brachydactyly, particularly short metacarpals and phalanges with irregular metaphyses and small, irregular carpal bones; and (iii) anterior beaking or tonguing of the vertebral bodies, biconvex vertebral endplates, and platyspondyly in childhood.
We evaluated the metaphyseal region close to the growth plate of the distal femur because it is the most recently formed trabecular bone and presumably the most sensitive to dietary factors affecting mineralization.
Cancellous bone grafting, the gold standard used in metaphyseal bone defects, entails an additional surgical intervention and a risk of specific complications such as pain, blood loss with the need of blood transfusion, and iatrogenic fractures, all of which are felt to impact the patient even more than the original fracture," said Prof.
Similarly, the metaphyseal region of the distal femur showed a reduction of trabecular BV/TV after Pb exposure.
Consequently, the femoral channel is prepared in case of which under the osteotomy line the metaphyseal area is being extended by means of fenestrated chisel.
These metaphyseal lesions are seen almost exclusively in patients <30 years of age.
The precise anatomic sites of lesions (diaphyseal, metaphyseal, or epiphyseal and intramedullary versus cortical or periosteal) also require consideration.
Vilain and McCabe approached the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, and in 1999 published the first description of the syndrome, which they dubbed IMAGe, an acronym of sorts for the condition's symptoms: intrauterine growth restriction, metaphyseal dysplasia, adrenal hypoplasia and genital anomalies.
The right tibia was directly defleshed and patella removed, the fresh bone breaking strength was determined using WDS-1 electric universal testing machine by three-point bending test of metaphyseal tibia with 30 mm supporting distance and 10 mm/min test speed.
