Table 1 Longitudinal Association between Prevalent BMLs and Incident SCs in the Same Subregion of the Knee. 39, No. The knee ligaments were carefully treated by regenerative injection therapy. 3-4, 17 August 2018 | RadioGraphics, Vol. Subregions without BMLs (score = 0) and without full-thickness cartilage loss (scores 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4) were considered the reference group. Of 19 153 subregions analyzed initially, 663 (3.5%) exhibited SCs at baseline and were excluded. Presence of osteophytes and subchondral cysts in four locations of tibiofemoral joint (medial and lateral femur and tibia) was recorded. To assess the association of prevalent bone marrow edema–like lesions (BMLs) and full-thickness cartilage loss with incident subchondral cyst–like lesions (SCs) in the knee to evaluate the bone contusion versus synovial fluid intrusion theories of SC formation. Retrospective cohort of 32 patients with two sequential knee MRI. 12, Current Opinion in Rheumatology, Vol. Introduction. Radiograph shows well-defined radiolucency in the lateral tibia representing a cystic lesion (arrow). SBCs, bone marrow lesion (BML), and hip-knee-ankle (HKA) axis were measured by using validated methods. The subchondral cyst was determined as the source of the excess synovial fluid filling up the Baker’s cyst. Background: Choice of appropriate MR pulse sequence is important for any research studies using imaging-derived data. CAS PubMed Google Scholar Results: MR imaging depicted 171 osteophytes and 51 subchondral cysts. 50, No. †Statistically significant differences were defined as having P <.05. All statistical calculations were performed by using software (SAS, version 9.1 for Windows; SAS Institute, Cary, NC). Objective: To determine if a relationship exists between bone marrow edema-like signal and subchondral cysts on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, despite the growing interest on BMLs in multiple pathological … The exact pathogenesis of these degenerative cysts is not certain.26,27 Subchondral cysts are most often seen in association with osteoarthritis, but may occur as the result of degeneration or injury of the overlying articular cartilage by other causes. 4, Cytokine & Growth Factor Reviews, Vol. Cartilage morphology was scored from 0 to 6. Subchondral bone cysts commonly occur adjacent to a treated focal cartilage defect and are possibly connected to the joint cavity. 27, No. 27, No. Subchondral bone cysts can happen with any type of arthritis, so rheumatoid arthritis can also cause it. Subchondral bone cyst formation is often encountered in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, particularly in advanced OA [].Visualised by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), subchondral bone cysts occur where the overlying cartilage has largely been eroded [].Two main theories are proposed about cyst formation: the synovial breach theory [3, 4] and the bony contusion theory [1, 5]. 7, No. Knees with typical MR imaging signs of traumatic bone contusions, osteonecrosis, fracture, or malignant bone infiltration were excluded from the analysis. Cartilage morphology and signal intensity were scored semiquantitatively from 0 to 6 in each subregion (0, normal thickness and signal intensity; 1, normal thickness but increased signal intensity on proton density–weighted or STIR images; 2.0, partial-thickness focal defect < 1 cm in greatest width [Fig 2]; 2.5, full-thickness focal defect < 1 cm in greatest width; 3, multiple areas of partial-thickness defects intermixed with areas of normal thickness or a grade 2.0 defect wider than 1 cm but < 75% of the region; 4, diffuse [≥75% of the region] partial-thickness loss; 5, multiple areas of full-thickness loss or a grade 2.5 lesion wider than 1 cm but < 75% of the region; 6, diffuse [≥75% of the region] full-thickness loss). For subregions demonstrating incident SCs without prevalent BMLs at baseline, it is still possible that an incident BML developed after the baseline visit that turned into a subchondral cyst, which was then observed at follow-up. Background: Subchondral bone cysts are a widely observed, but poorly understood, feature in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). 2, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Vol. The weighted κ coefficients of intraobserver reliability were 0.85 for the readings of BMLs and 0.96 for those of SCs, comparing scores 0–3 in each subregion. In a retrospective study of 32 patients who underwent two sequential knee MR imaging examinations, Carrino et al (13) reported that 92% of incident SCs developed in regions with BMLs, which favors the bone contusion theory. Given the fact that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being performed more frequently for assessment of the knee joint (e.g. MR images were obtained in both knees at baseline and 30-month follow-up with a 1.0-T dedicated extremity unit (OrthOne; ONI Medical Systems, Wilmington, Mass) with a circumferential extremity coil by using fat-suppressed fast spin-echo proton density–weighted sequences in the sagittal (repetition time msec/echo time msec, 4800/35; 3-mm section thickness; 0-mm intersection gap; 32 sections; 288 × 192 matrix; number of signals acquired, two; 140 × 140-mm field of view; echo train length, eight) and axial (4680/13; 3-mm section thickness; 0-mm intersection gap; 20 sections; 288 × 192 matrix; number of signals acquired, two; 140 × 140-mm field of view; echo train length, eight) planes and a STIR sequence in the coronal plane (6650/15; inversion time, 100 msec; 3-mm section thickness; 0-mm intersection gap; 28 sections; 256 × 192 matrix; number of signals acquired, two; 140-mm2 field of view; echo train length, eight). We assessed the longitudinal association of prevalent BMLs (score ≥ 1) and full-thickness cartilage loss (grades 2.5, 5, and 6) with incident SCs (score ≥ 1) on a per-subregion basis by using logistic regression with generalized estimating equations to account for correlations among the subregions within a knee (using one knee per person). Even after adjustment for prevalent full-thickness cartilage loss, prevalent BMLs showed a strong association with incident SCs. 2, No. These lesions have a characteristic appearance on magnetic resonance (MR) images, demonstrating well-defined rounded areas of fluidlike signal intensity on unenhanced images (1,2). https://doi.org/10.1016/j.joca.2009.03.012. Grade 2.5 cartilage morphology, which indicates a small (<1 cm) focal area of full-thickness cartilage loss, showed no such association. The most common alterations of BMLs found at histologic examination are bone necrosis, fibrosis, and trabecular abnormalities (1,11). To rule out observer bias (since MR images were read in pairs with known chronology), we evaluated BMLs and SCs in a subset of cases (30 cases randomly selected) and were blinded to time point and compared the results with those evaluated without blinding to time point. Figure 1: Axial, sagittal, and coronal MR images show subregional division in the WORMS system. The procedure is initiated by aspiration of the bone marrow from the ipsilateral iliac crest using a sharp trocar with a … WORMS (whole-organ MR imaging score) , KOSS (knee osteoarthritis scoring system) , and BLOKS (Boston-Leeds osteoarthritis knee score) are such semiquantitative measurements in which the cartilage damage is assessed concomitant with other structures of the knee (e.g., menisci, subchondral bone, osteophytes, and synovial membrane) .

BMLs were defined as poorly delineated areas of hyperintensity directly adjacent to the subchondral plate on STIR and proton density–weighted fat-suppressed MR images. Thus, according to the bone contusion theory, MR imaging–detected BMLs should represent the source of SCs in subjects with or at risk for knee OA. A longitudinal subanalysis of the individual BML and cartilage morphology grades was performed. 4, 20 August 2014 | Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Vol. the presence of pain in chondral pathology of the knee.1 Therefore, subchondral pathology, visible as sclerosis and/ or cysts (plain radiographs) and hyperintensity (on mag-netic resonance imaging [MRI]), has been targeted as a viable entity to treat in a therapeutic strategy to relieve pain.2 Inhibition of subchondral lesions has been shown (B) Sagittal PD FS image shows well-defined subchondral cyst (arrow) with surrounding BML (arrowheads). 1, © 2020 Radiological Society of North America, Bone marrow edema pattern in osteoarthritic knees: correlation between MR imaging and histologic findings, Prevalence and MRI-anatomic correlation of bone cysts in osteoarthritic knees, The cysts of osteoarthritis of the hip: a radiological and pathological study, Subchondral cysts (geodes) in arthritic disorders: pathologic and radiographic appearance of the hip joint, The pathological significance of intra-articular pressure, The pathological changes in degenerative arthritis of the hip and treatment by rotational osteotomy, Osteoarthritis of the knee: correlation of subchondral MR signal abnormalities with histopathologic and radiographic features, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee: a pattern approach for evaluating bone marrow edema, MRI-based semiquantitative assessment of subchondral bone marrow lesions in osteoarthritis research, Bone marrow edema pattern in advanced hip osteoarthritis: quantitative assessment with magnetic resonance imaging and correlation with clinical examination, radiographic findings, and histopathology, MRI-detected bone marrow edema-like lesions are strongly associated with subchondral cysts in patients with or at risk for knee osteoarthritis: the MOST study [abstr], MRI of bone marrow edema-like signal in the pathogenesis of subchondral cysts, A connective tissue disease screening questionnaire for population studies, Correlation of the development of knee pain with enlarging bone marrow lesions on magnetic resonance imaging, Non-fluoroscopic method for flexed radiography of the knee that allows reproducible joint-space width measurement [abstr], Radiological assessment of osteo-arthrosis, Whole-Organ Magnetic Resonance Imaging Score (WORMS) of the knee in osteoarthritis, A comparison of dedicated 1.0 T extremity MRI vs large-bore 1.5 T MRI for semiquantitative whole organ assessment of osteoarthritis: the MOST study, Change in MRI-detected subchondral bone marrow lesions is associated with cartilage loss: the MOST Study—a longitudinal multicentre study of knee osteoarthritis, A study of the prevalence and associations of subchondral bone marrow lesions in the knees of healthy, middle-aged women, Accuracy of T2-weighted fast spin-echo MR imaging with fat saturation in detecting cartilage defects in the knee: comparison with arthroscopy in 130 patients, Grading articular cartilage of the knee using fast spin-echo proton density-weighted MR imaging without fat suppression, Cartilaginous defects of the femorotibial joint: accuracy of coronal short inversion time inversion-recovery MR sequence, Open in Image SCs were defined as well-delineated areas of hyperintensity directly adjacent to the subchondral plate on STIR and proton density–weighted fat-suppressed MR images.

Design: Retrospective cohort of 32 patients with two sequential knee MRI. 1, 15 January 2013 | Clinical Rheumatology, Vol. Detection of SCs on radiographs (sometimes referred in radiography as geodes) is usually possible when they are big enough to produce areas of hyperlucency in the subchondral bone, which usually occurs in advanced disease. Table 2 Longitudinal Association between Prevalent Full-Thickness Cartilage Loss and Incident SCs in the Same Subregion of the Knee. An MRI allows him to see both the bony structures of the hip as well as the soft tissues. These cysts are produced in areas of damaged articular cartilage, subjacent to the underlying subarticular cortical plate. In the present study, we included all participants with available baseline and 30-month follow-up MR imaging results. Subchondral cyst–like lesions (SCs) are a common finding in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). 19, No. 2, 22 November 2012 | Osteoporosis International, Vol. 23, No. 6, 22 September 2016 | Nature Reviews Rheumatology, Vol. Subchondral bone cysts commonly occur adjacent to a treated focal cartilage defect and are possibly connected to the joint cavity. The clinical relevance of subchondral cysts in regard to pain or structural progression of OA is not well understood as of to date. 12, 1 September 2015 | The Journal of Rheumatology, Vol. 19, No. Incident SCs, considered the outcome, were defined as grade 0 at baseline and grade 1 or greater at follow-up. Sixty percent were women (n = 776), 86.4% were white (n = 1109), and 44.4% had tibiofemoral radiographically depicted OA (Kellgren-Lawrence grade, ≥2) at baseline (n = 570). However, spin-echo MR imaging is able to depict and help differentiate BMLs and SCs, in accordance with previous studies correlating the MR imaging appearance of these abnormalities and histologic findings (1,2,11). Vet Radiol Ultrasound. Copyright © 2009 Osteoarthritis Research Society International. Because BMLs are highly associated with cartilage damage in the same subregion of the knee (20,21), we adjusted for full-thickness cartilage loss when testing prevalent BML (bone contusion theory) as the predictor. 42, No. 32, No. kDepartment of Radiology, New York University, Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York, NY, USA Summary Objective: To determine if a relationship exists between bone marrow edema-like signal and subchondral cysts on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 1, Clinics in Sports Medicine, Vol. Radiology: Volume 263: Number 1—April 2012 n radiology.rsna.org 207 MusCuloskeletAl IMAgIng: Tomosynthesis of Osteophytes and Subchondral Cysts in the Knee Hayashi et al had a history of Paget disease, rheu-matoid arthritis, gout, systemic lupus erythematosus, other inflammatory joint disease of the knee, or major knee trauma or surgery. 3, 27 September 2011 | Rheumatology, Vol. 12, No. subchondral cysts (geodes) altered shape of the femoral condyles and tibial plateau; Plain radiographs are the workhorse of imaging including follow-up, although there is a poor correlation between radiographic findings and clinical symptoms 1,2.

Is Subchondral Acetabular Edema or Cystic Change on MRI a Contraindication for Hip Arthroscopy in Patients With Femoroacetabular Impingement? A multitude of differential diagnoses of subchondral BMLs may present with a similar aspect and signal characteristics. After HTO, the evolution of cysts was evaluated on MRI performed with a five year follow-up on the 72 knees with pre-operative cysts. Tibial plateaus (n = 97) were collected from knee OA patients during total knee arthroplasty (TKA).SBCs were identified using micro-computed tomography, and the specimens were divided into non-cyst (n = 25) and bone cyst (n = 72) groups.Microstructure of subchondral bone was assessed using bone volume fraction (BV/TV), trabecular number (Tb.N), structure model index (SMI) … Assessment of subchondral non-cystic ill-defined BMLs on gradient echo-type sequences should be avoided as they will underestimate the size of the lesion. In our study, most (92.6%) incident SCs detected were small (grade 1). Subchondral insufficiency fractures are non-traumatic fractures that occur immediately below the cartilage of a joint. Eleven tibiofemoral subregions are defined: the central (C) and posterior (P) femur medially and laterally, the anterior (A), central, and posterior tibia medially and laterally, and the subspinous (S) region. The association of prevalent BMLs and full-thickness cartilage loss with incident SCs in the same subregion was assessed by using logistic regression with mutual adjustment for both predictors. There is broad differential for cyst-like lesions around the knee. Two musculoskeletal radiologists (F.W.R. However, the effect was significantly attenuated after adjustment for BMLs, with an odds ratio of 1.4 (95% CI: 1.0, 2.0; P = .036). For this reason it is crucial to clearly and specifically define the type of BML that is being assessed and to use terminology that is appropriate to the condition and the pathology. At baseline examination, all subjects underwent weight-bearing posteroanterior fixed-flexion knee radiography by using the protocol of Peterfy et al (16) and a Plexiglas positioning frame (SynaFlexer; Synarc, San Francisco, Calif). Introduction. A subchondral bone cyst (SBC) is a fluid-filled sac that forms in the bone just beneath the cartilage of a joint such as the hip, knee, or shoulder. 5, Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, Vol. BMLs and SCs were scored from 0 to 3. 9, No. 10.1111/j.1740-8261.1998.tb00334.x. 2, Journal of Orthopaedic Translation, Vol. According to the synovial fluid intrusion theory (3,6), SCs should develop only in subregions with full-thickness cartilage loss, where breaches of the articular surface could allow synovial fluid and/or synovial tissue to intrude into the subchondral bone. To discuss terminology, radiological differential diagnoses and significance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-detected subchondral bone marrow lesions (BMLs) of the knee joint. 23, No. are shareholders in and one author (F.W.R.)
