Part of the Fortbildung Osteologie book series (FORTOSTEO, volume 4)


Die heterotope Ossifikation (HO) wird definiert als ektope Knochenbildung, bei der es zu der Entwicklung von mineralisiertem Knochengewebe in Weichgewebe, außerhalb des Skelettknochens, kommt. Die Ossifikationen können in relativ kurzer Zeit entstehen, zwischen der Anlage von noch nicht mineralisiertem Osteoid bis zum radiologischen Nachweis von knöchernen Strukturen vergehen teilweise nur wenige Wochen. Dieses Kapitel behandelt Ossifikationen nach Polytrauma, sekundäre Ossifikationen nach Dialyse sowie die Tendinosis calcarea.
