REVIEW
Steven P Cohen, W Michael Hooten
Neck pain imposes a considerable personal and socioeconomic burden-it is one of the top five chronic pain conditions in terms of prevalence and years lost to disability-yet it receives a fraction of the research funding given to low back pain. Although most acute episodes resolve spontaneously, more than a third of affected people still have low grade symptoms or recurrences more than one year later, with genetics and psychosocial factors being risk factors for persistence. Nearly half of people with chronic neck pain have mixed neuropathic-nociceptive symptoms or predominantly neuropathic symptoms...

BACKGROUND: The use of pegylated interferon alpha (IFN) has been of concern in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients with rheumatologic extrahepatic manifestations (EHM) due to the immunostimulatory effects of IFN. AIM: To study the efficacy and safety of sofosbuvir-based, IFN-free antiviral therapy in chronic HCV patients with rheumatologic EHM. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Group A included 24 patients with arthropathy (arthralgia or arthritis, n = 15) or vasculitis (n = 9) who received sofosbuvir and ribavirin (n = 17) or sofosbuvir and simeprevir (n = 7)...

Anterior shoulder dislocations, subluxations, and recurrent instability of the shoulder joint are common problems usually affecting a young active population. However, it can be a problem for patients up to the late decades in life and can lead to major shoulder arthropathy if left untreated or improperly treated. This article discusses the natural history, pathologic morphologic changes of the shoulder joint associated with anterior instability along with normal anatomic variants. We will also discuss current treatment recommendations and possible causes of the patient with recurrent instability despite prior stabilization procedures...

This article reviews the main radiographic features of crystal deposition diseases. Gout is linked to monosodium urate crystals. Classic radiographic features include subcutaneous tophi, large and well-circumscribed paraarticular bone erosions, and exuberant bone hyperostosis. Calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) can involve numerous structures, such as hyaline cartilages, fibrocartilages, or tendons. CPPD arthropathy involves joints usually spared by osteoarthritis. Basic calcium phosphate deposits are periarticular or intraarticular...

Crystalline-induced arthropathies impose substantial morbidity but can be challenging to diagnose, especially in early phases. The most common crystalline arthropathies are gout (monosodium urate deposition), calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate deposition, and hydroxyapatite deposition disease. Computed tomography (CT) and MR imaging provide 3-dimensional information on osseous structures, periarticular soft tissue, and tophi with superior spatial resolution. Dual-source CT (dual-energy CT [DECT]) offers the further advantage of selectively identifying crystalline deposits...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), a chronic inflammatory arthropathy associated with psoriasis, is an intractable immune disorder and refractory to pharmacological intervention. We assessed efficacy of selective depletion of myeloid lineage leukocytes in patients with PsA in a multicenter setting. A total of 20 patients with moderate to severe PsA refractory to conventional and biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs were included. Eligible patients had 3 points or more in the classification criteria for PsA...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical and radiological results of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) with glenoid plating in a consecutive series of patients affected by cuff tear glenohumeral arthropathy with glenoid retroversion >15°. We hypothesized that autologous humeral head graft may be better stabilized between the baseplate and the native glenoid surface with the use of a glenoid plate. METHODS: Twenty consecutive patients affected by cuff tear arthropathy with glenoid retroversion >15° (B2 or C according to Walch classification) were enrolled in this study...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) preparations are used in horses with osteoarthritis (OA). However, some controversies remain regarding the ideal concentration of platelets and leukocytes to produce an adequate anti-inflammatory and anabolic response in the synovial membrane. The aims of this study were to study the influence of leukoconcentrated platelet-rich gel (Lc-PRG) and leukoreduced platelet-rich gel (Lr-PRG) supernatants on the quantitative expression of some proinflammatory and anabolic genes in equine synovial membrane explants (SMEs) challenged with lipopolysaccharide (LPS)...

Joint bleeding represents the most commonly reported type of hemorrhage in patients affected by hemophilia. Although the widespread use of prophylaxis has been able to significantly reduce the onset of arthropathy, it has been shown that a non-negligible percentage of patients develop degenerative changes in their joints despite this type of treatment. Thus, periodic monitoring of the joint status in hemophilia patients has been recommended to identify early arthropathic changes and prevent the development or progression of hemophilic arthropathy...

Chikungunya fever has become an important public health problem in countries where epidemics occur because half of the cases progress to chronic, persistent and debilitating arthritis. Literature data on specific therapies at the various phases of arthropathy caused by chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection are limited, lacking quality randomized trials assessing the efficacies of different therapies. There are a few studies on the treatment of musculoskeletal manifestations of chikungunya fever, but these studies have important methodological limitations...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of tertiary syphilis involvement in the spinal column with destructive bone lesions is very rare. It is difficult to establish the correct diagnosis from radiographs and histological examination alone. Limited data are available on surgical treatment to tertiary syphilitic spinal lesions. In this article, we report a case of tertiary syphilis in the lumbar spine with osteolytic lesions causing cauda equina compression.

Enterococcus faecalis is the major causative agent of amyloid arthropathy in chickens. Given the difficulty of estimating the risk from field strains, the Embryo Lethality Assay (ELA) is proposed in this study as model to predict the virulence of 68 avian E. faecalis strains. Additionally, Enterobacterial Repetitive Intergenic Consensus Polymerase Chain Reaction (ERIC-PCR) was used to characterize the genetic diversity of the E. faecalis strains. The ELA was performed ten times with subsets of seven-eight E...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a systemic, chronic autoimmune disease of the digestive tract. The etiology and pathophysiology of IBD is not fully understood, though it is believed to be due to a complex interaction among the patient's genotype, immune system, and environmental factors. Inflammatory bowel disease is frequently accompanied by extraintestinal manifestations that occur in almost half of all patients. The most common extraintestinal manifestation that occurs is joint disease, collectively termed the arthropathies of IBD...

Simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a potentially cost-saving manner of caring for patients with hemophilia who have bilateral symptomatic hemophilic knee arthropathy. Because factor VIII is used only once in bilateral TKA, it is performed in hemophilia to reduce costs. Areas covered: This article reviews the potential role of simultaneous bilateral TKA in patients with hemophilia. Expert commentary: Although two recent reports have mentioned the benefits of simultaneous bilateral TKA in patients with hemophilia, the data are still scant and preliminary...
