What are the signs and symptoms of Osgood-Schlatter's disease? Pain in tibial tuberosity and soft tissue swelling.
What are the treatment options for Paget's disease? -Calcium therapy to decrease bone reabsorption -Braces for deformities -Radiation therapy if in 4th stage of progression -Anti-inflammatory drugs
What are the three types of osteoporosis? Generalized Regional Localized
What is the pathogenesis of Osgood-Schlatter's disease? Avulsed fragment evident at attachment site of pattellar ligament
What muscle's powerful force is the cause of Osgood-Schlatter's disease? Quadriceps muscle
What is a noted treatment option for kyphosis? Kyphoplasty
What are the signs and symptoms of Osteochondritis Dissecans? joint effusion clicking locking tenderness
What is the pathogenesis of osteochondritis dissecans? -dominant in males -occurs during age 11-20 yrs -small necrotic fragments of subchondral bone
What is the treatment for legg-perthes disease? somewhat reversible with non-weight bearing treatment
What is the method used to evaluate the degree of curvature of a scoliotic spine? Cobb Method
What are the 4 anatomical areas where legg-perthes disease is assessed? -femoral head -epiphyseal area -femoral neck -greater trochanter
What is the radiographic appearance of the femoral neck in a legg-perthes patient? -widened and decreased length
How many blood supplies does the mature femoral head have? 3
during what age range does the femoral head only have one blood supply? 5-7 * The importance of this fact is that only 1 of the femoral head’s 3 blood supplies is developed fully by this age range, if it is obstructed from forming properly, avascular necrosis will occur (legg-perthes).

A metabolic disease where Normal bone is absorbed and replaced by lucent patchy bone Paget's disease
Congenital disorder in which a portion of the spinal canal contents protrude due developmental failure of the neural arch to close Spina Bifida
