In the modern treatment of Charcot neuroarthropathy, beam screw fixation is an alternative to plate and screw fixation. Exposure is minimized for implantation, and this technique supports the longitudinal columns of the foot as a rigid load-sharing construct. A published data review identified a paucity of data regarding metatarsal intramedullary canal morphology relevant to beam screw fixation. The purpose of the present study was to describe metatarsal diaphyseal morphology qualitatively and quantitatively in an effort to provide data that can be used by surgeons when selecting axially based intramedullary fixation...

OBJECTIVE: Hemophilic arthropathy is associated with pronounced vascular joint remodeling. Also, compared to the general population, PWH have a higher prevalence of hypertension not explained by usual risk factors. Since vascular remodeling in various vascular beds is a hallmark of hypertension, we hypothesized that vascular joint remodeling is associated with elevated blood pressures and hypertension. METHODS: Elbows, knees and ankles of 28 adult PWH were evaluated for vascular abnormalities with MSKUS/PD, as well as for radiographic and clinical status and pain...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a common immune-mediated arthropathy primarily affecting the spine and pelvis. Most AS patients have subclinical intestinal inflammation, suggesting the gut microbiome and the immune response play a role in pathogenesis. Susceptibility to AS is primarily genetic, and at least 114 susceptibility variants have been identified to date. We applied bioinformatic methods utilizing epigenetic and gene and protein expression data to identify the cell types through which AS-associated variants operate...

BACKGROUND: Acromial morphology has previously been defined as a risk factor for some shoulder pathologies. Yet, study results are inconclusive and not all major shoulder diseases have been sufficiently investigated. Thus, the aim of the present study was to analyze predictive value of three radiological parameters including the critical shoulder angle, acromion index, and lateral acromion angle in relationship to symptomatic patients with either cuff tear arthropathy, glenohumeral osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tear, impingement, and tendinitis calcarea...

Objectives To define the molecular basis of a multisystem phenotype with progressive musculoskeletal disease of the hands and feet including camptodactyly, subluxation and tendon rupture reminiscent of Jaccoud's arthropathy. Methods We ascertained two families segregating an autosomal dominant phenotype encompassing musculoskeletal disease and variable additional features including psoriasis, dental abnormalities, cardiac valve involvement, glaucoma and basal ganglia calcification. We measured the expression of interferon-stimulated genes in peripheral blood and skin, and undertook targeted Sanger sequencing of the IFIH1 gene encoding the cytosolic double-stranded RNA sensor MDA5...

Deficiency of PRG4 (lubricin), the boundary lubricant in mammalian joints, contributes to increased joint friction accompanied by superficial and upper intermediate zone chondrocyte caspase-3 activation, as shown in lubricin-null (Prg4(-/-)) mice. Caspase-3 activity appears to be reversible upon the restitution of Prg4 either endogenously in vivo, in a gene trap mouse, or as an applied lubricant in vitro. In this study we show that intra-articular injection of human PRG4 in vivo in Prg4(-/-) mice prevented caspase-3 activation in superficial zone chondrocytes and was associated with a modest decrease in whole joint friction measured ex vivo using a joint pendulum method...

We report on a rare case of pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) in a 25-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital because of enlargement of fingers and toes. Through examination, we found some typical features on the patient including finger clubbing, periostosis, pachydermia, and cutis verticis gyrata (CVG). But laboratory tests were almost within normal ranges, which ruled out rheumatic arthritis, osteopulmonary arthropathy, thyroid acropathy, and acromegaly. Then, we diagnosed this case as PDP, which was confirmed by gene sequencing...

The pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is multifactorial. In the progression of CKD arthropathy, arteriosclerosis may alter the knee subchondral bone marrow by altering blood flow through the bone vasculature. Herein, multi-parametric MRI assessment, including dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), MRI T2*, contrast enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA), and micro-CT were applied in a rodent nephrectomy model to: 1) investigate the blood perfusion of subchondral bone marrow and its relationship to fat water content and trabeculation pattern in CKD and 2) demonstrate the feasibility of using multi-parametric MRI parameters as imaging biomarkers to evaluate the disease's progression...

BACKGROUND: The number of hemodialysis patients has been progressively increasing in our country. On the other hand, chronic hip arthropathy associated with long-term hemodialysis is a devastating problems affecting patients' quality of life. In our previous study, we proposed a classification system for radiological abnormalities seen in hemodialysis-related hip lesions. The purpose of the study was to propose the surgical strategy for hip disorders caused by long-term hemodialysis. METHODS: Patients with a history of hemodialysis for more than 10 years, 191 hip lesions in 165 consecutive patients who visited our institute due to hip symptoms...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthropathy, associated with skin and/or nail psoriasis. Real world data on efficacy and safety of TNF-α blockers in the elderly with PsA are lacking. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness, through the achievement of minimal disease activity (MDA), drug discontinuation rate, and safety in elderly patients with PsA on TNF-α blockers. A multicenter, observational study was carried out in four Italian centers. The assessment of disease activity and safety were performed at the start of anti-TNF-α (T0), at 6 months (T6) and at 12 months (T12)...

The history of what, in 1979, was called interleukin-1 (IL-1), orchestrator of leukocyte inter-communication, began many years before then, initially by the observation of fever induction via the endogenous pyrogen (EP) (1974) and then in rheumatology on the role in tissue destruction in rheumatoid diseases via the induction of collagenase and PGE2 in human synovial cells by a mononuclear cell factor (MCF) (1977). Since then, the family has exploded to presently 11 members as well as many membrane-bound and soluble receptor forms...
