However, MRI demonstrated irregular signal in the upper humeral metaphysis. A subsequent CT scan demonstrated hilar and mediastinal adenopathy.
Metaphysical fibrous defects, also called fibrous cortical defects (FCD), are the asymptomatic, nonneoplastic and self-healing tumors of bone, which occur commonly in the metaphysis of long bone, especially in the lower extremities.
Trampoline fracture of the proximal tibial metaphysis in children may not progress into valgus: a report of seven cases and a brief review.
Fractures of the distal ulna metaphysis that occur in conjunction with distal radius fractures are a rare subset of osseous injuries encountered about the wrist.
Table 1: Bone volume fraction (BV/TV, no unit), trabecular thickness (Tb.Th., in mm), and trabecular spacing (Tb.Sp., in mm) of 1 [mm.sup.3] of the proximal metaphysis, the distal metaphysis, and the proximal epiphysis of rat femurs and tibias.
Bacteria deposit in the metaphysis of long bones and lead to cellulitis in the bone marrow.
In an actively growing bone, type H vessels are present in the metaphysis and endosteum regions, while type L vessels predominate the whole medullary region.
In the proximal tibial metaphysis, GH and HT042 resulted in significant differences in trabecular [mu]-CT parameters (Table 3).
A small area of 1.5 x 2 cm of metaphysis became re-exposed later on.
There have been descriptions of stress fractures in the ulna, (3,4) the radial shaft, (5) and other locations in the upper limb, (6) but to our knowledge a stress fracture has never been described in the distal radial metaphysis. A similar but not identical entity is a distal radial physeal fracture, (7) sometimes referred to as "gymnast's wrist." The occurrence of the fracture in a rare anatomic location in this case may be attributed to the unique type of strain resulting from the specific movements of Capoeira.
Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis (SCFE) is the gradually acquired mal-alignment of the proximal femoral metaphysis and capital epiphysis.
Additionally, after fixation, bone tissue specimens taken from inferior metaphysis of the right femur were decalcified.
