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: Comminuted intraarticular fractures of the distal radius metaphysis are a major challenge for orthopedic surgeons. The aim of this study was to present results of the survey on treatment of these fractures using an external fixator. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 73 patients (30 females and 43 males) with closed comminuted intraarticular fractures of the distal radius, type C AO/ASIF (based on radiography at the moment of injury) were treated by a Mitkovic external fixator and followed-up for at least 2 years...

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...

In 1964-66, the authors completed the comprehensive medical screening of 1412 persons. Apart from the indicators of health state they also recorded their social and cultural parameters. The diagnoses they registered included AC, which has been covered in literature in rather contradicting ways. They found no data concerning survival; as analysing such a correlation is only possible within the frame-work of a several-decade follow-up study. By the end of the follow-up stage (31:12:1994), after 30 years, 1375 persons had died...

To ascertain both physical and psychosocial effects of knee surgery in patients with moderate gonarthrosis, clinical examination of patients has been supplemented with a questionnaire SIP (Sickness Impact Profile) to describe the functional health status. Sixty patients, 35 women and 25 men, mean age 63 years, with moderate medial osteoarthrosis of the knee were included in the study. Sixteen patients had bilateral symptoms of gonarthrosis. Patients considered that their knee ostheoarthrosis had great influence physically as well as psychosocially...

X-ray alterations of the type ischemic osseous necrosis were established in three patients (two females and one male) with Icenko-Cushing disease. In the first case--the haed of femur was unilaterally affected: in the second--bilateral lesions with the same localization; and in the third--a combination of changes in the head of femur and the heads of some metatarsal bones. In all patients, secondary ostheoarthrosis alterations were also observed. The tomographic study enabled the visualization of details, characterizing the stage of the progress of the process...

The possibilities of the complex radionucleid joint investigations in the diagnosis of ostheoarthrosis are discussed. The investigation covered 104 patients with osteoarthrosis, aged 471 +/- 2.0 and 22 control subjects, aged 43.9 +/- 3.1. The time for half-elimination of 133Xenon injected in the knee joint is 154.8 minutes for the healthy subjects and 122.2 minutes for those suspected of narrowing of the joint cavity resp., 105.4 minutes for the patients with II X-ray stage and 77.7 minutes for III-IV X-ray stage of osteoporosis...
