Kenalog 40 corticosteroid

Porter Young, Kelly C Homlar
As intra-articular corticosteroid injections (CSIs) are a common treatment for osteoarthritis, physicians must well understand their potential side effects. Postinjection flares are an acute side effect of intra-articular CSIs, with symptoms ranging from mild joint effusion to disabling pain. The present case involved a severe postinjection flare that occurred after the patient, a 56-year-old woman with moderate osteoarthritis in the left knee, received 2 mL of 1% lidocaine and 2 mL (40 mg) of triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog)...

Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) is a derivative of cellulose found in many food products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Allergy to CMC in parenteral corticosteroid preparations leading to anaphylaxis is rare, but has previously been reported. We report a case of a 52-year-old woman with prurigo nodularis of Hyde, who reacted with anaphylaxis after intradermal injection of Kenalog 40 mg/ml. Allergy testing showed a positive skin prick test for CMC and the patient was advised to avoid future parenteral exposure to CMC...

PURPOSE: To report the incidence of infectious and noninfectious endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection of 4 mg of triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog - 40 mg/ml; 0.1 ml) and to evaluate distinguishing characteristics that may assist the clinician in differentiating these entities. DESIGN: Observational nonconcurrent prospective study. METHODS: Charts of 121 patients (154 injections) who consecutively underwent intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide to treat various chorioretinal diseases were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare sonographic evaluations of patients referred with suspected snapping of their iliopsoas tendon with the pain relief achieved from anesthetic injection of the iliopsoas bursa, and with the subsequent surgical outcome. This study also assessed the effectiveness of Kenalog injection into the iliopsoas bursa for long-term pain relief. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Dynamic and static sonography was performed in 40 patients with clinically diagnosed snapping hips...

OBJECTIVE: Epidural corticosteroid injections have been used extensively to treat lower back pain, but the relative effectiveness of one corticosteroid versus another has never been reported in a large patient series. We retrospectively reviewed 597 patients who had epidural corticosteroid injections to determine any difference in Kenalog or Celestone efficacy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed charts and self-reported pain score evaluations of 597 patients who received either Kenalog or Celestone Soluspan as an epidural injection for the treatment of lower back pain from 1997 to 2002 at our university hospital and affiliated Veterans Affairs hospital...

51 patients suffering from chronic spastic bronchitis were treated with acupuncture over a period of three years. The patient group consisted of 15 men and 36 women varying in age from 19 to 75 years, with an average age of 45.7 years. The therapy program consisted of 2 or 3 months of acupuncture treatment in alternation with an equal period (2 or 3 months) of recess during which no treatment was administered. Before acupuncture, patients had taken corticosteroids either orally and/or intramuscularly for a period of 2 to 24 years...

Positive immediate (96%) and long-term (85%) results of treatment of some degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the locomotor system with corticosteroid drug Kenalog-40 allow it to be recommended as an effective medicine especially for deforming arthroses, scapulohumeral periarthritis, epicondylitis when other methods proved to be ineffective.

One hundred and seventeen patients with active sarcoidosis of the respiratory organs were treated according to 4 therapy regimens based on the use of corticosteroid drugs. Intermittent use of the corticosteroids was shown to be the most efficient (in 98.5 per cent). It allowed to lower the course dose by 25-30 per cent and to reduce the frequency of complications to 1.5 per cent. Inspite of high efficacy of kenalog 40, its use was limited because of adverse reactions in 19.2 per cent of the patients. It was difficult to eliminate the adverse reactions because of the drug prolonged action...

Since corticosteroids are known to be a potent factor redistributing the peripheral blood lymphocytes to other body compartments, we estimated the sub-populations of T and B lymphocytes in peripheral blood of steroid dependent asthma patients. In twenty steroid-treated asthma patients and eighteen healthy blood donors the percentage and absolute number of lymphocytes forming spontaneous rosettes with sheep red blood cells ("early" and "late" T lymphocyte marker) and mouse red blood cells (B lymphocyte marker) were determined...
