Alternative diagnosis on CBCT compared to MRI. With widespread use of MR it is now not uncommon in clinical practice to observe this progression of findings. Besides the limitations of MRI in this field, it is still considered the most comprehensive imaging modality of the ankle because of its capability to assess soft tissue and bone marrow abnormalities on a single examination. 2015; 44(8): 1111–7. Location of the OCL according to the mechanism of trauma. These patients have inferior outcomes for arthroscopic treatment of FAI compared with patients with similar age and activity level without MRI subchondral … Example of understaging of the cartilage defect of an OCL on MRI compared to CBCT arthrography. The area between the fracture line and the articular surface should be of high signal in T2 weighted images 2,4. Coronal reformatted CBCT-A (c) barely shows subtle subchondral sclerosis at the superolateral aspect of the talar dome and intact overlying cartilage. Cartilage damage may have a variable imaging appearance ranging from a small fissure, a distinct defect, flap formation or delamination. As MRI is inaccurate for the evaluation of the articular cartilage compartment, further staging with direct arthrographic techniques are often mandatory if an OCL is detected on MRI and in those scenarios in which arthrosopic treatment is considered.

Subchondral cystic lesions are common features that are associated with many arthropathies and synovial-based processes. In fact, Subchondral Bone Cyst is one of the parameters that physicians look at when diagnosing osteoarthritis. 1959; 41–A: 988–1020. This term refers to a wide spectrum of pathologies including mild bone marrow contusion as well as severe osteoarthritis resulting from long standing disease. Staging of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: MRI and Cone Beam CT. Journal of the Belgian Society of Radiology, 101(S2), 1. On CBCT arthrographic images, the contrast separating the OCL fragment from the talar dome can be evaluated with more confidence (Figure 8).

Sagittal fat suppressed T2-WI (intermediate weighting) showing BME (white asterisk) at the lateral corner of the talar dome (b). Conventional radiography, Mortise View (b). Useful MR scoring parameters include lesion location, lesion size in 3 planes, subchondral bone marrow edema, subchondral cyst formation and/or sclerosis, status of the overlying cartilage, contour depression of the articular bone plate. Moreover, despite several modifications of the staging systems on MRI, not all combination of the degree of involvement of the cartilage and subchondral bone are included and therefore these classification systems remain uncomprehensive, complicated and less valuable for use in daily routine. Coronal reformatted CBCT-A (b) demonstrates more clearly the OCL fragment (arrow) separated from the adjacent talus by thin rim of surrounding contrast (arrowheads). 48 (12): 1961-1974. Subchondral insufficiency fracture of the knee: grading, risk factors, and outcome. Osteochondral lesions (OCL) of the talus are defined as any damage involving both articular cartilage and subchondral bone of the talar dome. Subchondral cysts and intraosseous ganglion cysts cannot be differentiated histologically. 280 (1): 21-38. MRI sensitivity in detection of OCL of the talus, correlated with arthroscopic correlation, varies according to different studies and has been reported as high as 81% [10].

There are two generally accepted theories on the etiology of subchondral cysts. 2017;101(S2):1. Yamamoto T, Iwasaki K, Iwamoto Y. Transtrochanteric rotational osteotomy for a subchondral insufficiency fracture of the femoral head in young adults. A subchondral cyst without superficial cartilage damage is rare and requires a different approach. Stage 3 according to Anderson classification. The IW fs sequence depicted subchondral bone marrow edema-like lesions to a larger extent than DESS (p < 0.0001), and the opposite was true for subchondral cysts. The weight-bearing joints such as the knee, hip, and ankle joints are more commonly affected ref. 17 (9): 1115-31. It has also been shown that both small (≤5 mm) and large (>5 mm) MR imaging–depicted osteophytes are associa… Foot Ankle Int. 24) is an intraosseous cyst which occurs beneath an articular surface of a bone. Subchondral insufficiency fractures are more common in elderly women 1,4,6. When a small defect in the chondral plate is present, the intraarticular fluid will erode the subchondral bone, which will result in bone marrow edema. Based on the combination of MRI and CBCT findings the diagnosis of a subchondral insufficiency fracture (SIF) was made. They can also occur in conjunction with twisting and ligamentous injuries. DOI: http://doi.org/10.5334/jbr-btr.1377, Posadzy, Magdalena, Julie Desimpel, and Filip M. Vanhoenacker. The cartilage at the talar dome is slightly irregularly delineated (white arrow). The index cases demonstrate a subchondral fracture, which progresses to osteonecrosis and cortical collapse. (2019) Skeletal radiology. 468 (12): 3181-5. Nowadays MR staging of OCL on MRI is usually done by the Anderson classification [9], which is another modification of the initial staging system based on plain film evaluation by Berndt and Harty (Figure 6). As a result, the diagnosis of “spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee” has been abandoned and is now recognized as osteonecrosis developing following a subchondral fracture (see Web clinic February 2004). 7. There is slight irregular delineation of the cartilage (white arrow). In this regard, CBCT-Arthrography (CBCT-A) may be very promising technique for precise staging of cartilage lesions of the ankle as an alternative for Multi Detector Computed Tomography (MDCT). Coronal proton density (b) shows focal hypointense thickening of the talar dome (arrow). It uses a conical X-ray beam and flat-panel detector collecting all volumetric data in one rotation of the gantry. 9. Journal of the Belgian Society of Radiology 101 (S2): 1. Despite the combination of these MR parameters, accurate cartilage evaluation remains often illusive. J Bone Joint Surg Br 1955;37:663. DOI: https://doi.org/10.2106/00004623-198668060-00007, De Smet, E, De Praeter, G, Verstraete, KL, Wouters, K, De Beuckeleer, L and Vanhoenacker, FM. Cartilage damage may have a variable imaging appearance ranging from a small fissure, a distinct defect, flap formation or delamination. 2003; 19(4): 353–9. 2017. In adult patients, the depth of the cartilage lesions is often understaged (Figures 3 and 4). MRI is the most sensitive method to depict this stage without any correlating signs on CR or CBCT with injection of intraarticular contrast. S2, 2017, p. 1. A mnemonic for the causes of subchondral cysts is: COORS Mnemonic C: CPPD O: osteoarthritis O: osteonecrosis R: rheumatoid arthritis S: synovial-based tumors See also Geode A subchondral fracture is a fracture of the trabecular cancellous bone just beneath the subchondral bone plate without disruption of the articular surface 1. Due to the widespread use of fluid-sensitive sequences on MRI, even subtle foci of BME may be seen adjacent to a cartilage defect, particularly in acute or subacute OCL lesions. Disqus. On a corresponding sagittal reformatted CBCT-A (c), there is almost complete detachment of the cartilage at the superolateral aspect of the talar dome (black arrow). MRI coronal PD fat suppressed image (1.5 Tesla equipment) of the talocrural joint (c) with normal appearance of the thin cartilage layer (arrows) of intermediate signal, low signal of subchondral bone and homogenous bone marrow signal (stars). 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. (2018) Radiographics : a review publication of the Radiological Society of North America, Inc. 38 (5): 1478-1495. DOI: http://doi.org/10.5334/jbr-btr.1377, Posadzy M, Desimpel J, Vanhoenacker FM. Due to its noninvasiveness, absence of radiation exposure and its ability to visualize associated concomitant soft tissue abnormalities, MRI is the initial technique for exclusion/confirmation of an osteochondral lesion of the ankle. 2017;101(S2):1. GCT can mimic or be mimicked by other benign or malignant lesions at both radiologic evaluation and histologic analysis. A modified grading system has been proposed by Hepple in 1999 [5] and by Dipaola et al. Articular cartilage lining remains homogenous without any signal changes (Figure 7). Coronal (a) fat suppressed T2-WI show adjacent BME (white asterisk) at the superolateral aspect of the talar dome. Subchondroplasty: What the Radiologist Needs to Know. Arthroscopic treatment of chronic osteochondral lesions of the talus: Long-term results. On the other hand, although MRI a very useful and sensitive technique for evaluation of the subchondral compartment (showing either BME or cyst formation), the precise depth and extent of the overlying cartilage lesion is often not accurately staged.

High-grade fluid-filled lesions with cortical collapse and severe osteoarthritis might require arthroplasty. With the advent of MRI, this grading system was further revised including evaluation of structures invisible on conventional radiology, such as the integrity of the cartilage and presence of BME. Schematic drawing of talocrural joint injury in pronation (a) results in sprain of the medial collateral ligaments (brown) and lateral-sided OCL of the talar dome and/or kissing tibial lesion (orange zones), whereas injury in supination (b) causes sprain of the lateral ligaments and medial-sided OCL of the talar dome and/or kissing lesions at the tibia (orange zones). {"url":"/signup-modal-props.json?lang=us\u0026email="}. Ostlere SJ(1), Seeger LL, Eckardt JJ. Coronal fat suppressed T2-WI (intermediate weighting) showing BME (white asterisk) at the lateral corner of the talar dome (a). Later on, this grading system has been modified to computed tomographic evaluation and correlated with arthroscopy, distinguishing cystic lesion of talar dome seen in primary stages with or without communication to the articular surface and detached fragment in more advanced lesions [6]. It's a fluid-filled sac that forms in one or both of the bones that make up a joint. Coronal (c, d) reformatted CBCT-A clearly shows an extensive cartilage lesion down to bone with adjacent cartilage flap (black arrow). The purpose of this pictorial review is to illustrate the strength of each imaging method. Subchondral bone cysts (SBCs) are sacs filled with fluid that form inside of joints such as knees, hips, and shoulders.

This term covers a wide spectrum of pathologies including (sub)chondral contusion, osteochondritis dissecans, osteochondral fracture and osteoarthritis resulting from longstanding disease. 2008; 16(11): 1047–51. Subchondral cysts are often a part of the joint degenerative process and occurs where there are breaks in the hip joint cartilage. Background: Cystic lesions of the carpal bones are rare entities that are infrequently reported in the literature. Physical examination should include evaluation of local tenderness and swelling. Cartilage thickness in cadaveric ankles: Measurement with double-contrast multi-detector row CT arthrography versus MR imaging. The articular surface of the talus is large and its blood supply is critical in the watershed areas [1] explaining an impaired healing process and predisposition to posttraumatic necrosis in those vulnerable areas. Sometimes visible as subchondral hyperlucency with a decrease in bone density. Sagittal (a) and coronal (b) fat suppressed T2-WI showing multilocular subchondral cysts (black arrowheads) at the medial aspect of the talar dome. Subchondral cysts are a common finding in osteoarthritic knees. All were located in the … Sayyid S, Younan Y, Sharma G, et al. Sclerotic lines as a result of impaction or as slight deformities of the joint line in case of subchondral collapse can sometimes be seen particularly at a later stage 4. 8. Foot Ankle Surg. 45, No. J Bone Joint Surg Am. This underscores the value of preoperative imaging. This is not Kienbock's disease, where cystic changes develop more diffusely. RESULTS: We identified 58 subchondral cystsin 43(71.7%) of 63 cases. Almost always there will be associated bone marrow edema best appreciated in fat-saturated T2-weighted and intermediate or proton-density weighted images 4. Although the incidence of osteoarthritis increases with age, the condition is not a normal part of the aging process. Gorbachova T, Melenevsky Y, Cohen M, et al. The overlying cartilage is difficult to assess on MRI. 2014; 20(1): 57–60. Subchondral fractures due to trauma can occur at any age. 10. Treatment depends on the location and size of the defect as well as the presence of secondary degenerative changes. Articular cartilage covering the articular surfaces (blue), cortical bone (black), normal bone marrow (yellow) and ligaments (brown). CBCT following intra-articular injection of Iodine contrast (CBCT-Arthrography) may render exquisite detail of the articular cartilage using very thin slices and multiplanar reformation. Note also partial filling of the subchondral cyst (black arrowhead) with contrast as an indirect sign of joint communication through a cartilage lesion. Similar to the Outerbridge classification widely used in staging of cartilage lesions of the knee, a modified staging system for evaluation of the depth of cartilage defects with correlation to arthroscopy may be used in the ankle (Figure 10). Subchondral lucency (SCL), also referred to as subchondral bone cysts, can cause clinical problems in horses and humans. Posadzy M, Desimpel J, Vanhoenacker FM. Yamamoto T. Subchondral insufficiency fractures of the femoral head. As the bulk of the U.S. population ages, the prevalence of osteoarthritis is expected to rise. Unstable lesions – if left untreated – predispose for early osteoarthritis. Subchondral bone involvement can be manifested by bone marrow edema (BME), fracture, sclerosis and/or cyst formation. Anatomy of the talocrural joint. Diagnostic value of CT arthrography for evaluation of osteochondral lesions at the ankle. In stage 3 an undisplaced completely separated fragment can be seen on MRI with adjacent BME. Fluid-fluid levels, consistent with secondary formation of aneurysmal bone cysts, are seen in 14% of cases. On plain films, the subchondral bone is seen as a thin layer of compact bone with a smooth surface and a uniform adjacent trabecular bone (Figure 2b). Although Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at 1.5 Tesla is the leading cross-sectional modality for detection and staging of OCL, lack of spatial resolution hampers accurate assessment of thin articular cartilage. (2010) Clinical orthopaedics and related research. Schematic drawing of the normal talocrural joint (a). Arthroscopy. 3. The majority of those lesions occur in active patients and are related to trauma. Note the more subtle subchondral cyst formation in the proximal margin of the hamate (H), related to chronic repetitive abutment with the lunate (type II lunate morphology with an extra facet which articulates with the hamate). Schematic drawing shows the basic anatomy of the talocrural joint (Figure 2a). Some authors suggest that … 101, no. 4 (3): 173-80. Patients will usually present with pain on weight-bearing in the affected joint, improving with rest 2. Note that the cystic changes are subchondral at the proximal ulnar portion of the lunate (L). Staging of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: MRI and Cone Beam CT. Journal of the Belgian Society of Radiology. MRI is an excellent imaging tool, able to detect osteoarthritis indicators such as chondromalacia (with a magnet strength of 1.5 T, it has a sensitivity of 100% for grade III and IV lesions) 20, 21, subchondral edema, and subchondral cysts … Although not comprehensive in scope, this article correlated the pathophysiology and imaging features of several of these disorders to better understand the associated subchondral lucencies. Usually, subchondral fractures present as linear or curvilinear structures often paralleling the subchondral bone plate, with or without areas of subchondral collapse 2. Their walls consist of a cell layer resembling synovium, and the surrounding wall is osteosclerotic. Check for errors and try again. CBCT-Arthrography (CBCT-A) of the talocrural joint, coronal reformatted image (d) showing smooth cartilage lining covering the normal subchondral bone of the talus (arrow) and tibia (arrowhead).

The pathologic definition of a cyst is a cavitary, fluid-filled lesion with an epitheli-al lining [21]. This review aims to summarize the available evidence on the evaluation and treatment of scaphoid cystic lesions to help guide clinical management. DOI: http://doi.org/10.5334/jbr-btr.1377, Posadzy, M., Desimpel, J., & Vanhoenacker, F. M. (2017). However, the sensitivity of conventional radiography in osteophyte depiction is limited compared with that of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (4,5). Osteoarthritis is one of the most prevalent and disabling chronic conditions affecting older adults and a significant public health problem among adults of working age. Journal of the Belgian Society of Radiology 101, no. Osteochondral lesions (OCL) of the talus involve both articular cartilage and subchondral bone of the talar dome. Am J Sports Med.
