BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although morning stiffness has long been recognized as a characteristic feature of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), it is no more included in the 2010 ACR/EULAR Classification Criteria or in the current major instruments for evaluating disease activity of RA. In this cross-sectional study, we aimed to determine the independent value and the optimal measurement of morning stiffness by clarifying the associations between morning stiffness and synovial inflammation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We enrolled 76 consecutive RA patients who underwent musculoskeletal ultrasound examination and agreed to participate in the study...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the association between hand dysfunction and ultrasound (US)-detected articular synovitis and tenosynovitis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Thirty RA patients were examined. In both hands of all subjects, articular synovitis and tenosynovitis were assessed by US at 22 joints and 12 tendons. Each joint and tendon was scored by gray-scale (GS) and power Doppler (PD) on a scale from 0 to 3. The sums of the GS or PD scores were used as the articular synovitis score and the tenosynovitis score...

INTRODUCTION: The use of metatarso-phalangeal joint arthroscopy in the treatment of osteochondritis dissecans was first described in 1988. The technique produces good results. However, it can be difficult to enter a joint when it is deformed by degenerative disease. Sonography is a modern visualisation modality which can be used in orthopaedic surgery. AIM: To describe a method of intraoperative sonographic navigation during first metatarso-phalangeal joint arthroscopy...

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is one of the most common joint diseases affecting adults in the United States. For elderly patients with multiple medical comorbidities who do not wish to undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA), lifestyle modification, pharmacologic management, and injections are the mainstay of therapy. Previously, pain management interventions were limited to intra-articular joint injections and viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid. Fluoroscopic-guided techniques for radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the genicular nerves have been previously described and a recent cadaveric study suggests that ultrasound-guided genicular nerve blocks can be performed accurately...

Angelique Barreto, Timothy R Braun
OBJECTIVE: The desired therapeutic effect of Arthrokinex™ autologous conditioned serum (ACS) is facilitated by the ability of IL-1-Ra to limit the destructive inflammatory intra-articular (IA) actions of IL-1β. Previous studies have proven the capacity of Arthrokinex™ (ACS) to induce the anti-inflammatory cytokine, IL-1-Ra. The primary purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the effect of Arthrokinex™ (ACS) to reduce pain, improve joint function and enhance quality of life in patients with knee osteoarthritis...

BACKGROUND: Prenatal exposure of mother to valproate (VPA) causes teratogenic effects in the fetus, namely fetal valproate syndrome (FVS). We report a case of fetal valproate syndrome rarely diagnosed by prenatal sonographic examination. CASE PRESENTATION: Our patient was a female infant who was born to a 27-year-old nulliparous Japanese woman with epilepsy. The mother was diagnosed with infantile epilepsy at 1 year of age and had been using three antiepileptic drugs, including valproate, but preconceptional counseling was not performed...

Objective To investigate the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) on the extracellular matrix synthesis of human osteoarthritis (OA) chondrocytes and explore the underlying mechanism. Methods Human osteoarthritis chondrocytes were collected from abandoned articular cartilage. Then the cells were cultured and identified by toluidine blue staining and immunocytochemical staining of type 2 collagen. The passage 2 cells were randomly divided into 3 groups: control OA group, 30 mW/cm(2) LIPUS-treated OA group, 30 mW/cm(2) LIPUS combined with 5 μmol/L LY294002-treated OA group...

We present the case of an 83-year-old man who had painful swelling of right knee for 6 months. Radiographs showed a large intra-articular soft-tissue mass with small calcifications, whereas MRI detected a multilobulated intra-articular tumor with bone erosions at the distal femur. Histopathology of ultrasound-guided biopsy specimen of the synovial mass revealed it to be a poorly differentiated metastatic carcinoma. Abdominal computed tomography with intravenous contrast medium administration found a heterogeneously enhancing large right renal mass with calcifications, which was shown to be a renal cell carcinoma on histopathology...

OBJECTIVES: An important feature of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is hypoxia-driven synovial angiogenesis, but the relationship between change in vascularity, as measured by power Doppler ultrasound (PDUS), and oxygen tensions is unaddressed. METHODS: Metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint PDUS was assessed in 23 patients with RA, alongside arthroscopic synovitis and oxygen tension measurements, at baseline and 4 weeks after anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. RESULTS: Anti-TNF reduced PDUS scores, which were negatively correlated with rise in oxygen tensions...

OBJECTIVES: OnabotulinumtoxinA (onabotA) attenuates peripheral nociceptive transduction and consequently neuronal firing. The aim of this mechanistic study was to evaluate the effect of intra-articular (IA) onabotA in patients with painful knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHOD: We conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, 12-week trial using a single ultrasound-guided IA injection of onabotA (200 U). Patients (N = 121) were randomized to receive onabotA (n = 61) or placebo (n = 60)...

OBJECTIVE: CCN family protein 2/connective tissue growth factor (CCN2/CTGF) promotes cartilage regeneration in experimental osteoarthritis (OA) models. However, CCN2 production is very low in articular cartilage. The aim of this study was to investigate whether or not CCN2 was promoted by cultured chondrocytes treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) and to clarify its mechanism. METHODS: Human chondrocytic cell line HCS-2/8, rat primary epiphyseal and articular cartilage cells, and Ccn2-deficient chondrocytes that impaired chondrocyte differentiation, were treated with LIPUS for 20 min at 3...

INTRODUCTION: Femoral nerve block (FNB) is considered as a major advance in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction as it reduces the need for parenteral opioids. However, the incidence of transient or even permanent neurological deficits due to the FNB is estimated at 1.94% after knee surgery. The primary objective of this study was to compare local infiltration analgesia (LIA) to FNB during ACL reconstruction procedures. The study hypothesis was that LIA was not less effective than FNB on early postoperative pain...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of ultrasound-guided versus fluoroscopy-guided injection in CT arthrography and MR arthrography. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We reviewed all CT arthrography and MR arthrography studies done at our center between October 1, 2014 and October 1, 2015. We analyzed 32 studies: 26 with fluoroscopic guidance and 6 with ultrasound guidance. We compared the two techniques on the following parameters: presence of sufficient contrast material in the joint, extravasation or injection of contrast material in the soft tissues (presence of contrast material in the psoas or other soft tissues), and intra-articular gas bubbles...

Snapping hip syndrome is an audible or palpable snap in a hip joint during movement which may be accompanied by pain or locking. It is typically seen in young athletes performing activities requiring repeated extreme movements of the hip. It may also follow a physical trauma, intramuscular injections or surgeries. There are two main forms of snapping hip: extra- or intra-articular. Extra-articular snapping hip is elicited by an abnormal movement of specific tendons and is divided into two forms: internal and external...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease which results in extensive articular and extra-articular morbidity and increased mortality from cardiovascular disease. Despite an increasing range of non-biological and biological disease-modifying agents, poor patient adherence with medication is a significant barrier to effective control of the inflammation associated with RA. This review seeks to identify factors that affect patient adherence with medication, examine the effectiveness of interventions to address this issue and offer practical suggestions to improve medication adherence...

[Purpose] The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of hypothyroidism on femoral cartilage thickness by using ultrasound, which has been found to be useful in the early diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis. [Subjects and Methods] Forty patients diagnosed with hypothyroidism and 30 age-, gender-, smoking status, physical activity-, and body mass index-matched healthy subjects were enrolled. The thickness of the femoral articular cartilage was measured using a 7- to 12-MHz linear probe. Three mid-point measurements were taken from each knee at the lateral condyle, intercondylar area, and medial condyle...

Most commonly associated with chronic inflammatory conditions, rice bodies represent an uncommon, nonspecific, often intra-articular inflammatory process. Presumably, rice bodies represent the sequelae of microvascular infarcts of the joint synovium. However, rice bodies have been seen in pleural fluid, in the setting of bursitis, and within the tendon sheath. The etiology and prognostic significance of rice bodies are not clear. MRI is the diagnostic imaging modality of choice for the evaluation of rice body formation...
