BACKGROUND: Ultrasound combined with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (UltraTENS) and phonophoresis of piroxicam (PhP) are combined modality therapy that frequently used in musculoskeletal pain including knee osteoarthritis (OA). But it is lack of a good clinical trial to prove and compare their effects. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of UltraTENS with PhP on mild to moderate degree of symptomatic knee OA. METHODS: Sixty-one patients (55 women), mean age of 63...

OBJECTIVE: Currently, there are no reliable biomarkers for predicting therapeutic response in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The synovium may unlock critical information for determining efficacy as reduction in numbers of sublining synovial macrophages remains the most reproducible biomarker. Thus, a clinically actionable method for collection of synovial tissue, which can be analyzed using high-throughput strategies, must become a reality. METHODS: Rheumatologists at six United States academic sites were trained in minimally invasive ultrasound-guided synovial tissue biopsy...

Introduction: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic joint disease that usually occurs in older people and leads to pain and disabilities. OA treatment ranges from drug therapy to surgery. Drug and rehabilitation therapy are preferred over surgery, and, especially, there is a tendency toward compounds causing regenerative changes in the knee joint. In the present study, the effects of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection and prolotherapy (PRL) were examined on the level of pain and function of the knee joint in patients with OA...

BACKGROUND: Recently, several studies suggested that radiofrequency (RF) ablation of the genicular nerves is a safe and effective therapeutic procedure for intractable pain associated with chronic knee osteoarthritis (OA). Diagnostic genicular nerve block (GNB) with local anesthetic has been generally conducted before making decisions regarding RF ablation. Although GNB has been recently performed together with corticosteroid, the analgesic effects of corticosteroids for treating chronic pain remain controversial...

Enzyme-induced articular cartilage degeneration resembling osteoarthritis was evaluated using a newly defined acoustic parameter, the "averaged magnitude ratio" (AMR), which has been suggested as an indicator of articular cartilage degeneration. In vitro experiments were conducted on porcine cartilage samples digested with trypsin for 2 h (n = 10) and 4 h (n = 13) and healthy control samples (n = 13). AMR was determined with 15- and 25-MHz ultrasound, and the integrated reflection coefficient (IRC) and apparent integrated backscattering coefficient (AIB) were also calculated for comparison...

OBJECTIVES: Intraarticular injection is used for pain relief in knee osteoarthritis (OA), but there is not a well defined profile of patient who could get more benefit from it. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the frequency of pain relief at one year after corticosteroids intraarticular injection and to identify clinical factors associated to response in patients with knee osteoarthritis with joint effusion. METHODS: One-year prospective cohort study of patients with knee OA with joint effusion confirmed by ultrasound...

This is the first study to investigate the usefulness of a standardized ultrasound (US) examination protocol in diagnosing hand osteoarthritis (OA). We conducted a cross-sectional study including 62 patients, ultimately diagnosed with hand OA based on imaging evidence of osteoarthritic changes with the particular distribution required for fulfilment of American College of Radiology diagnosis criteria. We compared a 32-joint US score (wrists, metacarpophalangeal [MCP], proximal interphalangeal [PIP] or distal interphalangeal [DIP] and carpometacarpal [CMC]-1 joints), with smaller, predefined joint scores, assessing 22 joints (wrists, MCPs and PIPs or PIPs, DIPs and CMC-1), 10 joints (MCP 2-3, PIP 2-3 and CMC-1 or PIP 2-3, DIP 2-3 and CMC-1) and 6 joints (DIP 2-3, CMC-1), respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Many osteoarthritis patients persist symptomatic despite nonsurgical treatment. Pulsed ultrasound might be a viable alternative for such cases, but its real clinical relevance remains unclear. METHODS: A literature review was conducted in Epistemonikos, the largest database for sys-tematic reviews in health that compiles multiple sources, including MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane, among others. Relevant data were extracted, and infor-mation from the primary studies was reanalyzed...

BACKGROUND: An important role for synovial pathology in the initiation and progression of knee osteoarthritis has been emphasised recently. This study aimed to examine whether ultrasonography-detected synovial changes associate with knee pain (KP) in a community population. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted to compare people with early KP (n = 298), established KP (n = 100) or no KP (n = 94) at baseline. Multinomial logistic regression was used to estimate the odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) between groups adjusted for radiographic osteoarthritis (ROA) severity and other confounding factors...

RATIONALE: Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a chronic joint degenerative disease. Intra-articular injection (IAI) of hyaluronic acid (HA) is widely used to treat KOA. However, some HA injections have no effect at all. Polynucleotides (PN) are recently noted as a valid substitute for HA. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 61-year-old female was admitted to the pain center with symptoms of pain over the knee and warmth feeling with stiffness in the left knee. The patient reported chronic severe pain in the left knee area despite 6 times IAI of HA...

Synovial abnormalities have been observed at multiple stages of osteoarthritis (OA). Increasing evidence suggests that it may play an important role in the OA pathological process. Many assessment systems using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound have been established to detect synovial inflammation in OA. These have been used to inform the current investigation of OA disease phenotypes and progression and can be utilised in the future for clinical trials developing potential treatments. This narrative review aims to illustrate the importance of synovial tissue in OA and provide an overview of imaging assessments and possible therapies targeting synovial abnormalities...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common, chronic systemic inflammatory disease of unclear aetiology leading to synovial hypertrophy and joint inflammation. It typically presents with symmetrical polyarthritis of small joints of the hands or feet, but can also involve larger joints, and have associated extra-articular manifestations. Diagnosis is based on duration of symptoms, joint distribution, level of inflammatory markers and autoantibodies i.e. rheumatoid factor(RhF) and anty-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies...
