OBJECTIVES: There is an increasing emphasis on early identification and treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) of which the hallmark is sacroiliitis. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at increased risk of AS and often receive CT scans of their abdomen affording clinicians the opportunity to determine the presence of sacroiliitis. Previous studies using CT have relied only on radiologist's gestalt or a non-validated adaptation of the mNY criteria. Our aim is to assess the prevalence of sacroiliitis in IBD using a validated screening tool and to determine how frequently these patients are referred for rheumatologic evaluation...

Background Recent papers suggest that finger joints with positive synovial vascularity (SV) assessed by ultrasonography under clinical low disease activity (CLDA) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients may cause joint space narrowing (JSN) progression. Purpose To investigate the performance of a computer-based method by directly comparing with the conventional scoring method in terms of the detectability of JSN progression in hand radiography of RA patients with CLDA. Material and Methods Fifteen RA patients (13 women, 2 men) with long-term sustained CLDA of >2 years were included...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a challenging and rather daunting task owing to complex abnormal anatomy and its sequel to craniofacial structures. Various autogenous grafts and alloplastic materials have been tried with variable success for creation of a near-normal joint. In recent years, neocondyle distraction has added a new dimension to the management of TMJ ankylosis. The aim of this paper is to describe the role of neocondyle distraction in TMJ ankylosis...

A rapidly increasing number of mandibular condylar fractures and some complications related to injuries of temporomandibular elements make this study important. Intra-articular disorders lead to secondary pathological findings such as osteoarthritis, deforming osteoarthrosis, and temporomandibular joint ankylosis that limits mouth opening, mastication, swallowing, breathing, and decreased/lost working capacity or disability. Early diagnosis of intra-articular disorders can prevent from long-lasting functional complications caused by temporomandibular joint injuries...

Nager syndrome, also known as Nager acrofacial dysostosis, was first described by Nager and de Reynier in 1948. The patients commonly present with micrognathia, and a preventive tracheostomy is necessary when there are symptoms of upper airway obstruction. Mandibular distraction osteogenesis is considered as an effective procedure, which not only improves micrognathia but also minimizes the chances of tracheostomy. However, mandibular distraction osteogenesis has some complications such as relapse, teeth injury, infection, and injury of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs)...

INTRODUCTION: Presently, during the surgical treatment of the patients in maxillofacial surgery, one can use various medical implants. Moreover custom made implants are being used. Replacements may be fitted to the structure and shape of the human skull owing to CAD/CAM (custom aided design/manufacture) called customized implants. This study was aimed to report for the first time clinical material from which custom implants, using two different techniques, were manufactured to reconstruct the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)...

Spondyloarthritis (SpA) is a relatively common chronic inflammatory joint disorder, with a prevalence of about 0.2-0.5% worldwide. The primary target of the pathological process is the enthesis, where tendons and ligaments attach to underlying bone. These insertion sites are hotspots of bone formation (enthesophytes), which can lead to ankylosis. Unfortunately, the mechanisms causing the onset and progression of entheseal ossification remain largely unknown. Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P), a lipid generated after sphingosine phosphorylation by sphingosine kinases 1 and 2 (SK1/2), plays important roles in cell proliferation, differentiation and survival...

In Japan, sacroiliitis is a very rare extraintestinal manifestation in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), and it typically presents with intestinal symptoms. Radiography is used for diagnosis, and reveals erosions, sclerosis, and ankylosis, but magnetic resonance imaging is more useful for early detection. The treatment of spondyloarthropathy such as sacroiliitis and spondylitis includes physiotherapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, sulfasalazine, and immunomodulators. In patients intolerant or cases refractory to these treatments, anti-tumor necrosis factor agents are recommended...

Approaches providing the positioning of human amniotic membrane (HAM) within the intra-articular space of arthritic TMJs have never been investigated. This contrasts with the increasing amount of evidence suggesting the potential positive effects of HAM on a number of surgical conditions, even included the interpositional arthroplasty for TMJ ankylosis. Thus, the possible usefulness of HAM to restore joint functions in severely damaged TMJs could be hypothesized. Based on these premises, the clinical research question "Is human amniotic membrane positioning effective to reduce symptoms and restore jaw function in patients with severe inflammatory-degenerative disorders of the temporomandibular joint?" has been addressed by performing a systematic review of the literature...

A 3-month-old male umbrella cockatoo (Cacatua alba) was presented because of acute non-weight-bearing lameness of the right leg. Marked soft tissue swelling was present around the femorotibiotarsal (stifle) joint, and the radiographic diagnosis was right medial femorotibiotarsal subluxation. Surgical management was elected, and the stifle joint was approached via a lateral parapatellar incision. Joint exploration revealed damage to the lateral meniscus, tendon of origin of the cranial tibial muscle, and cranial cruciate ligament...

Numerous oral and maxillofacial procedures in dentate patients begin with the fixation of occlusions. While several techniques exist to perform mandibulo-maxillary fixation, many surgeons use arch bars in common practice. In cases of severe craniofacial traumas or jaw malformations, such as temporomandibular joint ankylosis, it may be impossible to use rigid arch bars. This technical note reports on the development of a technique to produce pre-shaped rigid arch bars using 3D printing technology. We take the case of a patient who presents Le Fort 1, Le Fort 2 and Le Fort 3 fractures as well as a central palatine disjunction, an angular mandibular fracture and bilateral zygomatic fractures...

BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a situation in which the mandibular condyle is fused to the glenoid fossa by bone or fibrous tissue. The management of TMJ ankylosis has a complicated chore, and it is challenging for the maxillofacial surgeon because of technical hitches and high rate of reankylosis. Costochondral graft (CCG) is a common treatment modality for TMJ ankylosis. One of disadvantages of CCG is unpredictability of growth pattern and risk of overgrowth...
