Successful treatment of aneurysmal bone cyst of the hip in a child by selective transcatheter arterial embolization.
ABSTRACT Aneurysmal bone cysts are rare lesions that occur more commonly in the first and second decades of life. In children, a juxtaepiphyseal location is associated with increased risk of growth plate damage, skeletal deformity, and recurrence. Different treatments have been reported for the management of aneurysmal bone cysts, including surgical excision with or without adjuvants, intralesional injection of sclerosing agents, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, systemic calcitonin therapy, and selective arterial embolization. The authors present the case of a 5-year-old girl with a large aneurysmal bone cyst at the proximal femur, complicated by a pathologic fracture; treatment with two selective transcatheter arterial embolizations was curative.

ABSTRACT: A monoclonal antibody, 1B3.1, was raised against a cloned IL-2-dependent T cell line that expresses the T gamma delta T cell receptor. MoAb 1B3.1 reacted with long-term cultured T cell lines of both T gamma delta and T alpha beta lineage, and with in vivo-stimulated T cells, derived from synovial fluid, but not with resting or short-term activated T cells, B cells, or macrophages. Immunoprecipitation of the 1B3.1 target antigens showed that 1B3.1 recognizes a 200/110 kDa molecule that is identical to the VLA-1 heterodimer precipitated by MoAb TS2/7. 1B3.1, however, binds to an epitope of VLA-1 that is distinct from the TS2/7 binding site. This new MoAb could be useful in further studies of the functions of VLA-1, and of the cells that express this molecule.Cellular Immunology 10/1989; 122(2):416-23. · 1.74 Impact Factor
