Diagram showing the growth plate fracture types according to the classification by Salter and Harris from Wikipedia. Growth plate fracture with involvement of metaphysis and epiphyis Salter-Harris milyen vitaminok a prosztatitisekkel rendelkező férfiak számára IV. Dislocation and Subluxation When the range of normal relationships for a particular joint is slightly exceeded, it is called a subluxation.

When it is grossly exceeded, and the articulating structures are not in contact any more, it is called a dislocation. Joints most frequently affected by a luxation are shoulder, elbow, ankle, hip, and interphalangeal joints. Luxation will usually cause capsule and ligament disruption with soft tissue swelling and loss of fat planes. Associated avulsion fractures are frequently seen.
As in fracture imaging exposure in two perpendicular planes are required to correctly visualize and describe a luxation or dislocated fracture. A Complete dislocation with contraction in the elbow joint.

Ulna and radius are both dislocated and dorsally displaced. Anterior and inferior dislocation of the humerus. Degenerative Joint disease Primary osteoarthritis involves weight bearing joints such as the knee, where changes are seen especially in the medial compartment and the patellofemoral compartment. In the hip changes are seen superolaterally.
The tibiotalar prostate cyst mri is rarely significantly involved, except for changes along the anterior margin of the distal articular surface of the tibia. These are most likely posttraumatic in origin. A Knee joint with degenerative changes. Note the sclerotic medial tibial plateau prostate cyst mri joint space narrowing. A small osteophyte is seen on the medial femoral condyle. Pelvis with marked degeneration of both hip joints.
The right femoral head shows lateral osteophyte formation and is deformed. The joint space is narrow with increased subchondral sclerosis of the acetabular roof. The left hip has a marked joint space narrowing and lateral osteophyte formation. The femoral head shows increased density due to sclerotic areas and irregularity. In the hand there is typically involvement of the trapezium-scaphoidal joint and the first carpal-metacarpal joint.
In addition, there is involvement of the distal interphalangeal joints of the fingers with lesser changes at the proximal interphalangeal joints and the metacarpal-phalangeal joints. Typical degenerative changes in prostate cyst mri hand: A Joint space narrowing and subchondral sclerosis of the trapezoidum-scaphoidal joint and the first carpal-metacarpal joint.
Degenerative arthritis of the distal interphalangeal joint showing typical osteophyte formation, joint space narrowing and increased sclerosis. In the foot there is often involvement of the first metatarsal-phalangeal joint. In addition to joint space narrowing and subchondral sclerosis there is subchondral degenerative cyst formation and osteophyte formation along joint margins.
Osteophytes are the sine qua non of osteoarthritis. In degenerative joint disease new bone formation is seen as a response or repair reaction. In inflammatory arthritis there usually is a destruction of bone and osteophytes are not seen. In the spine, changes are seen prostate cyst mri the facet joints throughout and at the uncovertebral joints in the cervical region.
Degenerative disc disease is also seen with associated osteophyte formation. The traction osteophytes of degenerative annular disease begin several millimeters from the edge of the vertebral body, and tend to be initially oriented horizontally at their attachment to the vertebral bodies.
They then often curve slightly and prostate cyst mri even form a complete bony bridge prostate cyst mri the disc space.
Sacroiliac joint involvement is common. The sclerotic joint margins are sharply defined as opposed to changes seen in inflammatory arthritides. Degenerative osteoarthritis may be secondary to previous infection or trauma. In these cases there is more degenerative change in the particular joint than may be found in corresponding regions elsewhere in the body.
Osteophytes can be seen in both primary and secondary osteoarthritis. They can also be seen at various entheses, often due to altered or increased stress at the entheses traction osteophytes.
Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis may involve any synovial joint. The sacroiliac joints are involved only infrequently. The greatest involvement is in the small joints of the hands, wrists and feet with sparing of the distal interphalangeal joints.
In early stages there may be only soft tissue swelling and juxta-articular osteoporosis. Next joint space narrowing and prostate cyst mri erosive changes are seen. In general, the presence of erosions bespeaks some type of inflammatory disease, whether the erosions are due to synovial hypertrophy, crystalline deposits, or infection. In rheumatoid arthritis, the erosions follow the prostate cyst mri of an inflammatory proliferation of the synovium, called pannus.
As this pannus increases in amount, it begins to cause erosions of the chondral surface. As the pannus increases further in amount, one begins to see erosions at the periarticular "bare" areas.
These "bare" areas refer to bone within the synovial space which is not covered by articular cartilage. The articular cartilage tends to protect the bone that it covers.
The marginal "bare" areas are not covered by cartilage, and the earliest erosions of rheumatoid arthritis are seen here.

Rheumatoid arthritis. A Early erosive changes are seen at the bare areas of the second and thirs metacarpal-pahalangeal joint. In a patient with long standing rheumatoid arthritis marked destruction of carpal bones and styloid process has occurred. Rheumatoid arthritis also involves the cervical spine, with apophyseal joint erosion and malalignment, intervertebral disc space narrowing with endplate sclerosis and without osteophytes, and with multiple subluxations, especially at the atlanto-axial junction.
