122 patients with osteoarthrosis, who have in the past medical history verified chronic gastritis (50 males and 72 females) at the age from 42 to 64 have been examined. Control group was comprised of 40 patients with osteoarthrosis without gastroduodenal zone pathology in the past medical history. For arthralgia relief patients were prescribed meloxicam (average dose--12.5 - 1.39 mg daily) or nimesulide (average dose--150 ± 14.91 mg daily). As a result of this research it was determined that administration of selective NSAID (meloxicam and nimesulide) in patients with chronic gastritis in the past medical history raised the risk of NSAID gastropathy/dyspepsia 2...

We studied the expression of some CC chemokines and their receptors in the synovium of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthrosis, and a history of joint injury. In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, the levels mRNA for some angiogenic and proinflammatory chemokines (CCL5/RANTES, CCL11/eotaxin, CCL24/eotaxin-2, and CCL26/eotaxin-3) and their receptors (CCR1, CCR2, CCR3, CCR4, and CCR5) was elevated. mRNA expression correlated with activity, stage, and serological status of rheumatoid arthritis. Obtained data confirm the importance of CC chemokines as mediators of angiogenesis and inflammation in the synovium in rheumatoid arthritis...

BACKGROUND: Human hip morphology is variable, and some variations (or hip morphotypes) such as coxa profunda and coxa recta (cam-type hip) are associated with femoroacetabular impingement and the development of osteoarthrosis. Currently, however, this variability is unexplained. A broader perspective with background information on the morphology of the proximal femur of nonhuman apes is lacking. Specifically, no studies exist of nonhuman ape femora that quantify concavity and its variability...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the association between job physical exposure (JPE) and incidence of flexor tendon entrapment of the digits (FTED). BACKGROUND: FTED, commonly known as trigger digit, is associated with age, gender, and certain health disorders. Although JPE has been suggested as a risk factor for FTED, there are no prospective cohort studies. METHOD: A cohort of 516 workers was enrolled from 10 diverse manufacturing facilities and followed monthly for 6 years...

Little is known about avascular necrosis of the mandibular condyle, which is necrosis of the epiphyseal or subarticular bone secondary to a diminished or disrupted blood supply in the absence of infection. We present a case of a large subarticular cystlike lesion that was found using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). There was an absence of osteoarthrosis, and the condylar articular surface was relatively intact. The patient's history, physical examination, and magnetic resonance images supported the diagnosis of avascular necrosis of the mandibular condyle...

A 64-year-old woman presented with right hip pain of 6 years' duration, accompanied by limping of 1 years' duration. Preoperative pelvis radiograph showed narrowing of joint space, osteophyte formation, and cystis degeneration of the femoral head surrounded by bony sclerosis, without obvious collapse of the femoral head; the diagnosis was osteoarthrosis. The patient's blood pressure on admission was 128/76 mm Hg. The patient had no special previous history. Preoperative blood and coagulation tests were normal...

PURPOSE: Acetabular morphology is an important predictor of the severity of osteoarthrosis and survival of hip prostheses but there is limited data on the normal range of acetabular measurements on plain radiographs. The aim of this project was to determine the statistically normal ranges of acetabular inclination (AI) and center-edge angle (CEA). METHOD: One hundred coronal CT localizers (50 men and 50 women aged 20-30 years) were included in this study. All the patients underwent CT examination for thoracic or intra-abdominal indications...

Mechanical low back pain is a common indication for Nuclear Medicine imaging. Whole-body bone scan is a very sensitive but poorly specific study for the detection of metabolic bone abnormalities. The accurate localisation of metabolically active bone disease is often difficult in 2D imaging but single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) allows accurate diagnosis and anatomic localisation of osteoblastic and osteolytic lesions in 3D imaging. We present a clinical case of a patient referred for evaluation of chronic lower back pain with no history of trauma, spinal surgery, or cancer...

OBJECTIVE: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of hip discomfort in young adults. Recently, a better understanding of the pathomechanics and morphologic abnormalities in the hip has implicated FAI as a possible factor in early osteoarthrosis. The clinical presentation, physical examination findings, and radiographic features are discussed in this article. DATA SOURCES: PubMed was searched using words and terms including femoacetabular impingement, hip osteoarthritis, hip arthroscopy, early osteoarthrosis, and hip dislocation...

In patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, radiological examinations are only indicated in general practice if there is discrepancy between the history and the findings in the physical examination. The treatment of first choice is a combination of physiotherapy and oral analgesics. If paracetamol fails to reduce the pain sufficiently, NSAIDs can be prescribed. Glucosamine sulfate can be advised for a trial period of three months to reduce knee pain. Intra-articular high molecular hyaluronic acid, intra-articular glucocorticoids, and systemic NSAID's have a similar effect on reducing pain and improving function in the case of osteoarthritis of the knee...
