Background: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a very rare pathology that can cause lower extremity ischemia in healthy young people. Anomalous anatomic relationships between the popliteal artery (PA) and the surrounding musculo-tendinous structures cause PAES. We present 31 patients with PAES in 35 limbs that were treated surgically in our clinic within a 12-year period. Patients and Methods: From 2001 to 2015, 31 patients (mean age: 32 ± 7.4 years) underwent surgery for PAES...

G Meyer Zu Reckendorf, A Dahmam
Damage to the hand in patients suffering from gout is rare and is often detected at an advanced stage. The main clinical manifestations are the appearance of subcutaneous tophi at the finger joints. Other clinical manifestations of osteoarticular, tendinous or neurological lesions have been described in the hand and are often difficult to diagnose. In the majority of cases, surgery and adequate medical care with a suitable anti-gout treatment will allow the patient to recover normal hand function. However, surgical treatment is rare and is only performed after several months of carefully adapted medical treatment...

BACKGROUND: Familial hypercholesterolemia is a genetic lipoprotein disorder characterized by elevated plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, (tendinous xanthomas, xanthelasmas, and premature arcus corneus) and early onset atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Familial hypercholesterolemia is caused by mutations in the low-density lipoprotein receptor, apolipoprotein B or proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 genes. Rare mutations in low-density lipoprotein receptor adapter protein 1, APOE p...

Guang-Quan Zhou, Yi Zhang, Ruo-Li Wang, Ping Zhou, Yong-Ping Zheng, Olga Tarassova, Anton Arndt, Qiang Chen
Displacement of the myotendinous junction (MTJ) obtained by ultrasound imaging is crucial to quantify the interactive length changes of muscles and tendons for understanding the mechanics and pathological conditions of the muscle-tendon unit during motion. However, the lack of a reliable automatic measurement method restricts its application in human motion analysis. This paper presents an automated measurement of MTJ displacement using prior knowledge on tendinous tissues and MTJ, precluding the influence of nontendinous components on the estimation of MTJ displacement...

Isolated arthralgia, without hemorrhagic side effect exists and is considered as a very rare adverse drug reaction according to vitamin K antagonists' (VKAs) summary of product characteristics. Up to now, there are no literature reports of isolated, non-hemorrhagic joint complications in patients receiving VKAs. Hence, the objective of this study was to describe cases of VKA-related non-hemorrhagic joint disorders (fluindione, warfarin, and acenocoumarol) reported in the French Pharmacovigilance Database (FPVD)...

Takayasu Uchida, Mami Kanzaki, Toshiyuki Kakumoto, Yoshikazu Uesaka
The diagnosis of longus colli tendinitis (LCT) is sometimes challenging, especially when laboratory data show marked inflammation and neuroimaging studies do not indicate calcification within the tendon of the longus colli muscles. We herein report a case of LCT that presented with elevated inflammation parameters without calcification on imaging. Findings characteristic of LCT, such as prevertebral hyperintensity areas on T2-weighted images and no signs of purulent diseases, informed our diagnosis of LCT. Enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are useful procedures when diagnosing LCT after ruling out other critical purulent diseases...

INTRODUCTION: Popliteal artery entrapment is an uncommon syndrome, caused by extrinsic compression of the popliteal artery by muscular or tendinous structures. It occurs mainly in young individuals, with no atherosclerostic risk factors, and a mean age of presentation of 20 to 40 years, and has higher prevalence in males (83% of patients). Clinical presentation depends on the degree of arterial lesion, the most common being intermittent claudication, with critical ischemia being frequent...

We compared the Lim/Tsai tendon repair technique using an extra-tendinous knot with modification using an intra-tendinous knot. The ultimate tensile strength, load to 2 mm gap force, stiffness, mode of failure, location of failure, and time taken to repair each tendon were recorded during a single cycle loading test in 20 tendons with each repair method. We found that the ultimate tensile strength and 2 mm gap force of the modified Lim/Tsai repair with an extra-tendinous knot (56 SD 5 N and 14 SD 2 N, respectively) were statistically significantly higher than that of the modified Lim/Tsai repair with intra-tendinous knot (51 SD 7 N and 11 SD 2 N, respectively)...
