2008 Post-traumatic Heterotopic Ossification

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/326242-overview

Physical Medicine. In 1918, Dejerine and Ceillier first described heterotopic ossification (HO) in paraplegic patients injured in World War I, referring to the process as paraosteoarthropathy. HO has been defined as the formation of mature lamellar bone in soft tissues. The process involves true osteoblastic activity and bone formation. HO...

2008 Update Heterotopic Ossification in Spinal Cord Injury

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/322003-overview

Heterotopic ossification (HO) following spinal cord injury (SCI) was described first by Dejerine and Ceillier in 1918 as paraosteoarthropathy. The process is one of formation of mature lamellar bone, which is indistinguishable from normal bone, in soft tissues surrounding paralyzed joints. The bone is not connected to periosteum and becomes...

The historical terms for heterotopic ossification have been superseded, but ectopic ossification and myositis ossificans are used interchangeably with the term heterotopic ossification. The condition may affect the bones or the joints. Three types of heterotopic ossification have been described: myositis ossificans progressiva (a rare pediatric metabolic disease whereby skeletal...

This rare disorder is characterized by physical handicap due to intermittently progressive ectopic ossification and malformed big toes which are often monophalangic. Occasional features include short thumbs, fifth finger clinodactyly, malformed cervical vertebrae, short broad femoral necks, deafness, scalp baldness, and mild mental retardation. Although most cases are sporadic, several...
