#1
Tilman Pfitzner, Carsten Perka, Philipp von Roth
Background In end-stage medial osteoarthritis, the surgeon can decide whether to use unicompartmental or total knee arthroplasty for operative treatment of the patient. Despite the available literature there is a lack of evidence to suggest if one procedure can be rated as being superior to the other. With increasing demand for knee arthroplasty, treatment with the highest expectation of success will be of particular interest. The purpose of this manuscript was to analyse and compare the available literature on unicompartmental vs...

Using a homemade auxiliary device, urinating in a standing position was a feasible alternative to a seated position for women during pregnancy. Pregnant women can experience difficulty voiding in a squatting or crouching position in the absence of a sitting toilet; voiding in a standing position represents a potential alternative. In previous studies [1, 2], voiding in the standing position using a homemade auxiliary device was demonstrated to be a feasible alternative for both young, healthy women [1] and elderly patients with knee osteoarthritis [2]...

BACKGROUND: Local administration of opioids causes effective analgesia without adverse effects related to the central nervous system. After the beneficial demonstration of peripheral opioid receptors in joint synovia, intra-articular opioid injections were used for pain treatment. Clinical studies have reported the safety and efficacy of hyaluronate injection in the shoulder joint of patients with osteoarthritis, periarthritis, rotator cuff tears, and adhesive capsulitis. OBJECTIVES: To estimate the efficacy of intra-articular hyaluronate and tramadol injection for adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder compared with that of intra-articular hyaluronate injection alone...

BACKGROUND: The dorsal approach to the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint provides the advantage of improved visualization of the articular surface, while the disadvantage of a dorsal approach is the disruption of the central slip and extensor mechanism requiring a delay in range of motion exercises. A volar approach keeps the central slip and extensor mechanism intact, allowing for early range of motion. The goal of this study was to evaluate patient outcomes of surface replacement (SR) PIP joint arthroplasty performed through a volar approach...

Ankle osteoarthritis compromises ankle joint stability in regards to static balance. Unilateral and bilateral osteoarthritis patients often exhibit different limb-loading patterns during static balance tasks. Symmetrical loading has been posited to improve balance performance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to quantify balance performance in both ankle osteoarthritis patient groups. Twenty-two unilateral and twenty-one bilateral ankle osteoarthritis patients performed three 10-second quiet standing trials with their feet together...

We present the case of a 94 years- old patient, which was operated 14 years ago of a right total knee replacement for osteoarthritis, actually she suffers of pain and instability; her X ray shown polyethylene wear without loosening of the metal components. The polyethylene insert is not manufactured anymore so we decided cement a new polyethylene insert on the native tibial baseplate. The two years follow up show us a patient asymptomatic, good function and no radiolucencies on the tibial component. We only found a similar case report in Madrid and we believed that this decision, taken from total hip revisions, will succeed...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and is a leading cause of disability worldwide, resulting in pain, reduced quality of life and socioeconomic burden. Current therapies for OA focus on mitigating the symptoms of advanced disease, but novel therapeutic agents are needed to inhibit the processes leading to OA. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of Icariin on matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)‑1, MMP‑3 and MMP‑13 expression in interleukin (IL)‑1β‑stimulated human SW1353 chondrosarcoma cells, and to investigate the possible mechanism underlying the chondroprotective effects of Icariin...

BACKGROUND: Over the years, many theories have been proposed and examined to better explain the etiology and development of osteoarthritis (OA). The characteristics of joint destruction are one of the most important aspects in disease progression. Therefore, investigating different factors and signaling pathways involved in the alteration of extracellular matrix (ECM) turnover, and the subsequent catabolic damage to cartilage holds chief importance in understanding OA development. Among these factors, reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been at the forefront of the physiological and pathophysiological OA investigation...

Histamine H4 receptor (H4R) has immune-modulatory and chemotaxic effects in various immune cells. This study aimed to determine the osteoclastogenic role of H4R in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The concentration of histamine in synovial fluid (SF) and sera in patients with RA was measured using ELISA. After RA SF and peripheral blood (PB) CD14+ monocytes were treated with histamine, IL-17, IL-21 and IL-22, and a H4R antagonist (JNJ7777120), the gene expression H4R and RANKL was determined by real-time PCR. Osteoclastogenesis was assessed by counting TRAP-positive multinucleated cells in PB CD14+ monocytes cultured with histamine, Th17 cytokines and JNJ7777120...

Laterally wedged insoles have been shown to be effective for the reduction of the knee adduction moment and other biomechanical variables that are associated with the pathogenesis of knee osteoarthritis. However, inconclusive results such as adverse effects in individual subjects or even no group-wise wedge effects have been presented in different studies and it has been suggested to identify variables that potentially confound the wedge effect. The main objective of this study was the investigation of interaction effects of lateral wedges with walking speed, as different self-selected speeds have mainly been used in previous studies...
