New Publication Identifies Prevalence of Benign Childhood Bone Tumors

Abstract

Benign bone tumors are common incidental findings in the pediatric population during radiographic evaluation. Counseling these patients requires reassurance and raises questions about the natural history of these tumors over time. The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence and observe the behavior of benign childhood bone tumors in an asymptomatic population...

New Publication Highlights A Reproducible Model of Fracture Healing in Mice

Abstract

Purpose: The classic fracture model, described by Bonnarens and Einhorn in 1984, enlists a blunt guillotine to generate a closed fracture in a pre-stabilized rodent femur. However, in less experienced hands, this technique yields considerable variability in fracture pattern and requires highly-specialized equipment. This study describes a reproducible and low-cost model of mouse fracture healing using an open femoral osteotomy...

Orthopaedic Oncology Research Fund

Cancers of the bone and soft tissue can be among the most painful and debilitating diseases confronted by adults and children. Often, these patients grapple with fractures, arthritis, interruptions of blood flow to bone tissue, osteoporosis, and infections. In supporting orthopaedic oncology research, donors can help scientists gain a better understanding of these disease and provide them resources essential in discovering new treatments that help patients survive and enjoy a better quality of life.
