In this paper, we have studied the difference between classic Watson Jones anterolateral approach and modified anterolateral approach started in our institution from 2004 y. in group of patients with BMI more then 30 - 412 patients, mean age was 66,5 y., male -157 (38.2%), female - 255 (61,8%). Primary diagnosis were: Idiopathic osteoarthritis - 379 (92%), Rheumatoid ostheoarthritis - 16 (4%), DDH - 12 (3%). All surgeries were performed on supine position. All surgeries were performed by single surgeon. In 321 (78%) of cases modified approach was used...

INTRODUCTION: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that modifies the mechanical and biological properties of articular cartilage and subchondral bone, treatment is aimed at relieving pain, maintain joint and reduce disease progression function. The aim of this paper is to compare the surgical outcomes of the arthroscopic articular cleaning and Bandi procedure by using the WOMAC scale. METHODS: Cross-sectional study, functional outcome of treatment of patellofemoral ostheoarthritis by arthroscopic articular cleaning and Bandi procedure are compared...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of chronic arthritis worldwide. The etiology of pain in osteoarthritis is multifactoral, and includes mechanical and inflammatory processes. The use of intra-articular viscosupplementation in the nonoperative management of patients with osteoarthritis has become quite popular. Recent clinical data have demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory and chondroprotective actions of hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation reduce pain, from 4 to 14 weeks after injection, while improving patient function...

Osteoarthritis (ostheoarthrosis, OA) is characterized by progressive destruction of articular cartilage, remodeling of the periarticular bone and inflammation of the synovial membrane. In patients occur joints pain, impaired joints motion and disability. The results of many studies indicate an inflammation as foundation of this disease. The management of OA include a combination of pharmacological treatments and nonpharmacological interventions. Pharmacological treatments include used paracetamol, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and chondroprotectives (glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and so on)...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease in which prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) displays an important pathogenic role. The enzymes involved in its synthesis are highly expressed in the inflamed synovium, while little is known about 15- prostaglandin dehydrogenase (15-PGDH) that metabolizes PGE2. Here we aimed to evaluate the localization of 15-PGDH in the synovial tissue of healthy individuals or patients with inflammatory arthritis and determine the influence of common RA therapy on its expression...

INTRODUCTION: It was previously shown that lipoxygenase (LO) pathways are important in the rheumatoid arthritis (RA) inflammatory process and that synovial fluid from RA patients contains high amounts of leukotrienes. We therefore aimed to investigate the 5-LO and 15-LO-1 expression pattern in RA and ostheoarthritis (OA) synovial tissue and to study the effect of intraarticular glucocorticoid (GC) therapy on enzyme expression. METHODS: Expression of LOs was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in RA and OA synovial biopsies...

Elderly-onset gout (EOG), defined as a disease with onset at age 65 years or over, shows relevant epidemiological, clinical and therapeutic differences from the typical middle-age form. The main differences are the more frequent subacute/chronic polyarticular onset with hand involvement, the unusual localization of tophi on ostheoarthritis (OA) nodes, the increased female/male ratio and the frequent association with drugs that decrease renal urate excretion (diuretics and low-dose aspirin) and/or with primitive renal impairment...

UNLABELLED: The objective of our study was to determine whether waist circumference (WC) is a more reliable indicator than body mass index (BMI) of the presence of knee osteoarthritis in obese subjects. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed an observational study of obese patients with no other risk factors for knee osteoarthritis. For each patient, we evaluated BMI, WC, duration of obesity and knee pain. Two groups were identified: "asymptomatic patients" (AG), without knee pain, and "symptomatic patients" (SG)...

Ostheoarthritis (OA) is a social disease characterized by pain, inflammation and stiffness due to an involvement of articular cartilage, soft tissues and bone. OA is the most common rheumatic disease, every age can be affected but prevalence increases dramatically with age with a greater incidence in subjects between 40 and 50 years of age. Hip OA has an important correlation with weight, genetic factors, sex, previous traumas, occupational factors and age. People older than 35 have a prevalence of hip OA of 10...

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: Pulsed electromagnetic fields have shown therapeutic benefit in the treatment of numerous forms of osteoarthritis but have not been evaluated for their effects on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields in the treatment of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A multicenter clinical trial compared active treatment of 36 patients using pulsed electromagnetic fields to placebo treatment of 42 patients with TMD with pain in 1 or both TMJs and/or limited opening of less than 40 mm...

The myoarthropathic pain is the major source of orofacial pain. The diagnosis is not always easy because the diagnostic signs are not pathognomonic and they may occur also with other pain disorders. The pain intensity fluctuates, and mild to medium intensity pain has the tendency to subside spontaneously or can be alleviated with simple, non-invasive therapies as counseling, self-control, analgesics, physiotherapy, and occlusal appliances. For most patients a combination of counseling, self-control and physiotherapy (home program) is sufficient to relieve the pain...

Injuries to joint tissues are major clinical problems occurring with significant frequency and resulting in the formation of scar tissue or in some tissues with no healing at all. Such scar tissue has compromised biomechanical integrity, which leads to impaired function, increased risk of reinjury, induction of remodeling in other joint tissues and increases the risk of diseases such as ostheoarthritis. Development of new therapies, such as gene therapy, to enhance repair could have a significant impact on quality of life for patients...

In a double-blind trial 40 patients with ostheoarthritis were treated for relief of pain with ketoprofen or with the N-methyl-d-glucamine salt of indomethacin, both drugs being administered i.m. at the dosage of 100 mg/day for 12 days. Ketroprofen and the indomethacin salt significantly improved pain, functional capacity and walking distance, while only the former reduced the knee size in the patients with gonarthritis. The two drugs showed roughly the same latency period and the same duration of activity. Ketoprofen was perfectly tolerated: on the contrary, in one patient treated with the indomethacin salt, the treatment was stopped because of vascular hypotension and cutaneous rash...
