The meniscal tear treatment paradigm traditionally begins with conservative measures such as physical therapy with referral for operative management for persistent or mechanical symptoms. As a result, the partial meniscectomy is performed more than any other orthopedic procedure in the United States. This treatment paradigm has shifted as recent literature supports the attempt to preserve or repair the meniscus whenever possible given its importance for the structural integrity of the knee joint and the risk of early osteoarthritis associated after meniscus excision...

The advance of modern medical technology has extended people's life and increased the average age of the society. Some chronic diseases are due to the aging of the population and knee joint aging is a common disease in the elderly. Common joint pathology contains degenerative arthritis, arthroncus of knees, and gouty arthritis. Knee joints are the largest and the most complicated joints in a human body as well as the joint bearing huge pressure. Wrong posture, overuse, or vigorous exercise often cause injuries to knee joints, and such injuries could easily result in joint pathology and patients falling and breaking bones due to pain and powerlessness...

Traumatic injury to the subtalar joint occurs during subtalar dislocations, talar and calcaneal fractures, and fracture-dislocations. After closed reduction of subtalar dislocations, peripheral talar or calcaneal fractures need to be ruled out by computed tomography scanning. In fractures and fracture-dislocations of the talus and calcaneus involving the subtalar joint, anatomic reconstruction of joint congruity is essential for functional rehabilitation. Failure to anatomically reduce the subtalar joint potentially leads to chronic instability, subtalar arthritis and posttraumatic hindfoot deformity...

BACKGROUND: In the recent years, the ever increasing tendency toward the growth in the prevalence of degenerative-dystrophic articular diseases has been observed especially among the young subjects and the middle-aged people. The enhanced economic burden of treating the patients with this condition on the public health care system frequently comes not only from chronic pathology of the joints but also from the development of concomitant disorders which dictates the necessity of the search for the new methods for the management of such patients...

Nonelderly hip fracture patients have gathered little scientific attention, and our understanding of the group may be biased by patient case-mix and lack of follow-up. Preconceptions may thwart adequate investigation of bone health and other comorbidities. This literature review focusses on who these patients between 20 and 60 years are, how to treat them and how to evaluate the outcome. 2-11% of the hip fractures occur in non-elderly, equally common in men and women. Every second to forth patient smoke, have chronic diseases, and abuse alcohol...

INTRODUCTION: Falls are among the leading causes of injury and death among adults aged 65 or older. People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at increased risk of falling and of having a serious injury from falls. However, information is limited about risk factors for falls and fall-related injuries among people with CKD. METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of 157,753 adults (6.1% with CKD) aged 65 or older surveyed in the 2014 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System...

BACKGROUND: Nowadays, pain and disability due to chronic knee arthritis is a very common problem in middle aged people. A lot of modalities for management are available, including conservative analgesics and up to surgical interventions. Radiofrequency ablation of genicular nerves is assumed to be an effective less invasive and safe pain alleviation modality. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of fluoroscopic guided radiofrequency neurotomy of the genicular nerves for alleviation of chronic pain and improvement of function in patients with knee osteoarthritis...

Knee injuries and chronic disorders, such as arthritis, affect millions of Americans, leading to missed workdays and reduced quality of life. Currently, after an initial diagnosis, there are few quantitative technologies available to provide sensitive subclinical feedback to patients regarding improvements or setbacks to their knee health status; instead, most assessments are qualitative, relying on patient-reported symptoms, performance during functional tests, and physical examinations. Recent advances have been made with wearable technologies for assessing the health status of the knee (and potentially other joints) with the goal of facilitating personalized rehabilitation of injuries and care for chronic conditions...

OBJECTIVE: Poor adherence to therapy increases the patient and societal burden and complexity of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the past 15 years, biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) have revolutionized the treatment of RA. However, little data are available on the impact of adherence to biologics on health care resources. The objective of the study was to determine the long-term health care resource utilization patterns of RA patients who were adherent to biologic DMARD therapy compared to RA patients who were non-adherent to biologic DMARD therapy in an Ontario population and to determine factors influencing adherence...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the hand joints and leading to impairment in hand functions. Evaluation of functional impairment is necessary for assessing patient's quality of life, disease activity, and treatment outcome. To date, many scientific studies assessed the disease activity of patients with RA, but little attention has been carried out to assess these patients' hand functions and dexterity. The purposes of this study were to determine the clinical relevance of the Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand (QuickDASH), hand dexterity with the Purdue Pegboard Test (PPT), and handgrip strength and pinch strengths of RA patients and to look into their relation between each other...

The WHO reports that one of the major chronic conditions affecting the elderly worldwide is musculoskeletal disorders that are associated with long-term pain and disability. Considering the healthcare needs of the elderly (i.e. comprehensive, accessible, efficient) and the advantages of ultrasound (US) use (patient-friendly, convenient, cost-effective, and does not require exposure to radiation or magnetic fields), there seems to be a 'gap' in the actual clinical practice. In this paper, we aimed to highlight the potential value of US imaging in the management of the elderly with a wide spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions (degenerative/rheumatic joint diseases, falls/trauma, nursing care, peripheral nerve problems, sarcopenia, and interventions)...

The progressive physical deterioration of dialysis patients is apparent to all who are involved in their care. Exercise can help stem this decline, yet exercise uptake in chronic and end-stage kidney disease is low. The involvement of exercise professionals has been shown to significantly increase patients' physical function and improve their quality of life. However, exercise professionals are scarce in renal programs, far less than dietetic and social work services. A review of 10 years of renal exercise publications in the physical therapy and rehabilitation literature found that only 0...

OBJECTIVES: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic disease of connective tissue characterised by chronic course with periods of exacerbation and remission. Even in the early stages of the disease patients report the occurrence of fatigue and sleep disorders. Reduced sleep quality and chronic fatigue are common among patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The aim of the research was to evaluate the severity of fatigue and sleep quality assessment among patients hospitalised with rheumatoid arthritis and to determine the relation between the level of symptoms of fatigue and sleep quality and variables such as: age, gender, disease duration, marital status, applied pharmacological treatment, and pain intensity...

INTRODUCTION: Sub-acute septic arthritis of knee following a thorn prick injury to patella is an uncommon condition and seen in active playful children. The child may be afraid to narrate the incident to their parents or examining doctor, so a high index of suspicion is must. The delayed presentation is inevitable. Early synovitis due to the organic biological foreign body may progress to septic arthritis, if untreated may result in knee stiffness or chronic osteomyelitis of patella. CASE REPORT: We report a case of thorn prick injury to the left patella in an 8-years-old boy who neglected the incident of thorn prick while playing with his peer group 10 days ago and presented with features of sub-acute septic arthritis...
