Bone and joint complications in sickle cell disease

Location: http://patients.uptodate.com/topic.asp?file=red_cell/28277

Although sickle cell disease (SCD) is characterized by a marked heterogeneity in clinical and hematologic severity [1,2], bone and joint problems are the most common manifestations. Pain, caused by vaso-occlusive crises (VOC), may occur as often as every week or as rarely as once a year. Many patients also suffer...

Management of Sickle Cell Disease

Location: http://sickle.bwh.harvard.edu/scdmanage.html

Sickle cell disease (SCD) results from the substitution of a valine residue for glutamic acid at position 6 in the beta-subunit of hemoglobin (Ingram, 1956). With a few minor exceptions, people with only one gene for hemoglobin S (Hb S) are phenotypically normal (sickle trait). People who inherit two Hb...

Multidisciplinary Management of Orthopedic Patients With Sickle Cell Disease Sickle cell disease, an autosomal-recessive disorder, produces abnormal hemoglobin and erythrocytes, which leads to hemolytic anemia and microvascular occlusion. Patients with sickle cell disease often present with orthopedic disease manifestations requiring surgical intervention, with the most common indications being osteonecrosis and osteomyelitis....

Musculoskeletal Manifestations of Sickle Cell Disease

Location: http://uwmsk.org/residentprojects/sicklecell.html

Bone Infarction Flow patterns in the marrow predispose it to infarction. The slowing of blood flow through the marrow space allows for regional hypoxia and thus sickling of red cells, leading to infarction. The proximal epiphysis of long bones, especially the humerus and femer is the most common location of infarction...

Radiology Cases Sickle Cell Anaemia and the Skeleton LSBU

Location: http://myweb.lsbu.ac.uk/dirt/museum/p4-651.html

Sickle cell disease is one of the more common abnormalities of haemoglobin. The single substitution of valine for glutamic acid alters the folding of the protein and its response to deoxygenation. The inheritance is autosomal dominent, but generally the disease is more severe in homozygous individuals. Other haemoglobinopathies may affect...

Sickle Cell Anemia

Location: http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/home/cases/sickle.html

Introduction Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA) is caused by a change in the chemical composition of the protein (hemoglobin or Hgb) that carries the oxygen inside of the red blood cells (RBC's). Normal Hgb is a round or ball-shaped folded molecule composed of 4 protein subunits - 2 alpha chains...

Sickle Cell Anemia eMedicine

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/MED/topic2126.htm

Background: Sickle cell disease (SCD) and its variants are genetic disorders of mutant hemoglobins (Hb). The most common form found in North America is homozygous Hb S disease, first described by Herrick in 1910. Morbidity, frequency of crisis, degree of anemia, and the organ systems involved vary considerably from individual...
