21 Possible Causes for Abnormal X-Ray of the Tibia

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease

    PURPOSE: To evaluate the functional and clinical outcome of a new closing-wedge osteotomy for the prominent tibial tubercle after Osgood-Schlatter disease. METHODS: Between 2010 and 2014, 7 consecutive adults (mean age, 28.6 years; range, 26-35 years) were treated by closing-wedge reduction osteotomy of a[…][]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Tibia

    BMJ Case Rep. 2018 Mar 1;2018. pii: bcr-2017-223186. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2017-223186. Abstract Medial tibial stress syndrome and chronic osteomyelitis are conditions that are traditionally thought to affect very different patient groups. We present a case of shin splints in a recreational long-distance runner, complicated[…][]

  • Tibia Varum

    Children with a very short stature who are also overweight need x-rays to rule out any bone abnormality around the knee area.[] Genu varum results from repeated trauma to inner part of tibia restricting growth. Diagnosis is made through x-ray and genetic testing.[] X-rays are taken and angles are measured to rule out the potential for pathologic conditions.[]

  • Internal Tibial Torsion

    J Biomech. 2008 Dec 5;41(16):3377-83. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiomech.2008.09.023. Epub 2008 Nov 12. Author information 1 Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratories, College of Osteopathic Medicine, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA. Abstract The knee is one of the most frequently injured joints in the[…][]

  • Coxa Vara

    . • This is a progressive bow-leg deformity associated with abnormal growth of the posteromedial part of the proximal tibia. 31. Pathology. 32.[] X-Ray. Metaphyseo – Diaphyseal Angle 11 degrees - Normally) 34. Management. • Progressing Deformity: • Surgical Correction: 1. Corrective Osteotomy. 2.[]

  • Syphilitic Arthritis

    An x-ray of the knee showed multiple abnormalities, including severe medial femorotibial joint-space narrowing, several large subchondral cysts within the tibia and the patellofemoral[]

  • Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis

    X-ray investigation of the left ankle showed obvious bone abnormalities. An expanding osteolytic tumor in the lateral part of the tibia was observed.[] (Fig. 1) Figure 1 Preoperative ultrasound reveals a homogenous mass measuring 7 x 3 cm in diameter. The tumor is well defined.[]

  • Wolcott-Rallison Syndrome

    An X-ray survey showed osteopenia, generalized (proximal tibia, distal femur, and proximal phalanges) epiphyseal dysplasia, and tubulation deformities in the carpal bones[] […] and phalanges, but there were no abnormal findings in vertebral and pelvic bones (Figure 1).[]

  • Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia

    X-rays showed deformity, nonunion, and shortening of the tibia above the ankle. Post-Op At the initial surgery, the rod was removed and the nonunion was repaired.[] Robert Rozbruch Natalie was born with Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia. Despite multiple surgeries, she had a short, unstable leg and an abnormal gait.[] Limb Salvage Reconstruction of Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia with Bone Transport Pre-Op Patient Surgeon: S.[]

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    The bone abnormalities are called metaphyseal chondrodysplasia. X-ray changes are most commonly seen in the hip, femur, tibia (leg bone) and ribs.[] Liver Abnormalities in the structure of the liver and in function are not uncommon.[]
