INTRODUCTION: Improvements in the medical management for those with haemophilia have resulted in improved clinical outcomes. However, current treatment regimens do not alleviate all joint haemarthroses with the potential for long-term joint deterioration remaining. The evaluation of functional activities such as gait, using standardized tools to monitor children with haemophilia is emerging. AIM: This study explored differences in sagittal plane biomechanics of walking in adolescent boys aged 11-18 years with haemophilia and an age-matched group of typically developing boys...

This study evaluated the number of comorbidities between two normal values of 25OHD in outpatients during 1 year of 25OHD measurements. Five hundred twenty-nine outpatients were included, patients with 25OHD ≥ 20 and < 30 ng/mL had the higher number of comorbidities, suggesting that for this specific population, 25OHD ≥ 30 ng/mL would be more appropriate. INTRODUCTION : This study evaluated the comorbidities between two values of 25OHD in outpatients of a tertiary hospital. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study with measures of 25OHD in 1-year period, excluding 25OHD < 20 and > 50 ng/mL, clinical research participants, and liver disease and chronic renal failure patients...

Arthropathy of the hand is commonly encountered. Contributing factors such as aging, trauma, and systemic illness all may have a role in the evolution of this pathology. Besides rheumatoid arthritis, other diseases affect the small joints of the hand. A review of nonrheumatoid hand arthropathies is beneficial for clinicians to recognize these problems.

In a systematic review, we critically examined and synthesized the results of individual studies on reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) with latissimus dorsi tendon transfer. Two electronic databases were searched. For each included study, 2 reviewers evaluated the quality of its methods and retrieved data. In cases in which outcomes data were similar between studies, data were pooled using frequency-weighted (FW) mean values to generate summary outcomes. Seven studies met the inclusion and exclusion criteria, and 133 patient cases were reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Cuff tear arthropathy (CTA) is a well-defined  degenerative pathology  of the shoulder. When conservative treatments are unable to permit a good quality of life, the reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) can guarantee a good restitution of range of motion, function and strength of the shoulder without pain. In this paper we show our clinical, functional and radiological outcomes, as well as complications of RSA in patients with CTA. METHODS: We analyzed 31 patients who underwent to reverse shoulder replacement with Modular Shoulder System (SMR, Systema Multiplana Randelli; Lima-LTO, San Daniele del Friuli, Italy) reverse shoulder system, between August 2010-July 2014...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthropathy. Therapy with anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α agents represents the first therapeutic choice for moderate and severe forms; however, PsA patients can experience anti-TNFα failure, lack of efficacy, or adverse events. Several evidences exist on the effectiveness of switching among different TNFα inhibitors, and we reviewed the published data on the effectiveness of anti-TNFα first-, second- and third-line. Most of the studies report that the main reason for switching to a second anti-TNFα agent is represented by lack of efficacy (primary or secondary) and, more rarely, adverse events...
