Heterotopic Ossification: Radiology and Pathological Review

  • Ahmed Taher MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas

Abstract

Heterotopic Ossification (HO), is a commonly occurring condition referring to ectopic bone formation in soft tissues. HO develops in up to 44% of patients undergoing hip arthroscopy or replacement, 10-20% of those with CNS injury, and 4% of those with burns covering greater than 30%. Due to its potential to cause disability, distinguishing between HO and other mimetics can help clinicians better identify and improve patient care.
