Multiple osteochondromas (MO) in the forearm: a 12-year single-centre experience

Multiple osteochondromas (MO) are a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the presence of osteochondromas located on the long bones and axial skeleton. Patients present with growth disturbances and angular deformities of the long bones as well as limited motion of affected joints. Forearm involvement is found in a considerable number of patients and may vary from the ...

Complex forearm deformities: operative strategy in posttraumatic pathology

Complex posttraumatic forearm deformities have a significant impact on the integrity of the upper extremity leading to pain, instability in both the proximal and/or distal radioulnar articulation, and reduced range of forearm motion. Corrective osteotomy or more advanced procedures for malunited fractures or other posttraumatic deformities of the upper extremity, especially in the ...

Skeletal maturity of children with multiple osteochondromas: is diminished stature due to a systemic influence?

Background Multiple ostechondromas (MO) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease caused by mutated exostosin genes. It mostly affects the long bones and can lead to growth disturbances, especially disproportionate short stature. Both the local effect on growth plates and the systemic influence of the gene disorder on growth mechanisms might explain the diminished stature. Purpose ...
