A 15-year-old boy, with diaphyseal aclasis, presented with a two month history of a painful swelling in his left popliteal fossa, reportedly increasing in size.
Of the reviewed fractures, the researchers identified 135 as atypical, based on their location in the diaphyseal portion of the femur, either in the shaft or subtrochanteric region, as well as other features: a transverse fracture, usually with lateral cortical thickening especially at the fracture site, and flaring of the lateral cortex, Dr.
A Danish registry cohort observational study found that fractures in the subtrochanteric and diaphyseal locations were no more frequent in patients receiving alendronate.
As expected, an induced chronic inflammation provoked further bone loss at total, metaphyseal, and diaphyseal sites in ovariectomized rats.
It is not clear why osteocalcin and bALP concentrations are relatively increased in OI, but osteoblast numbers are increased in OI bone (19), and given the putative role of osteocalcin and bALP in mineralization it is interesting to note that in patients with OI the bone tends to be hypermineralized (20), and in diaphyseal bone, volumetric bone density may be increased (21).

Nhereditary Multiple Exostoses (HME, EXT, MHE, Diaphyseal Aclasis, Familial Bony Spurs) is usually, but not necessarily, an inherited condition which can produce bony lumps close to the end of any bone, but particularly those of the limbs
Hereditary Multiple Exostoses (also known as HME, EXT, MHE, Diaphyseal Aclasis, Familial Bony Spurs) is a condition which can produce bony lumps close to the end of any bone, but particularly those of the limbs.
Interestingly, Ruff & Hayes (1983) note that resistance to axial loading (compression) is the least critical determinant of diaphyseal shape in lower limb bones.
