This study investigated features of skeletal muscle ageing in elderly individuals having previously undergone unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and whether markers of sarcopenia could be mitigated by a 12-week alpine skiing intervention. Novel biomarkers agrin, indicative of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) degeneration, tumor suppressor protein p53, associated with muscle atrophy, and a new ultrasound-based muscle architecture biomarker were used to characterize sarcopenia. Participant details and study design are presented by Kösters et al...

In rheumatology ultrasound is a relatively new but rapidly developing field, and now forms an important part of curriculum of rheumatology training programs in European countries. Ultrasound is now an accepted procedure to differentiate between arthralgia and arthritis, to look for erosions in early arthritis which is otherwise not visible on plain radiographs, to scan tendons in enthesopathies and to image blood vessels. It is particularly useful in early undifferentiated arthritis, where presence of synovitis by ultrasound can predict development of rheumatoid arthritis...

Nowadays ultrasound elastosonography is an established technique, although with limited clinical application, used to assess tissue stiffness, which is a parameter that in most cases is associated with malignancy. However, although a consistent number of articles have been published about several applications of elastosonography, its use in certain human body districts is still not well defined. In this paper we write on the use of elastosonography in prostate, testicle and musculo-skeletal apparatus. We report and compare the work of several authors, different type of elastosonography (shear wave, strain elastography, etc...

The first-line imaging technique for diagnosis inflammation in musculo-skeletal organs in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is planar X-ray examination, which was for many years the first and the only single tool for RA diagnostics and response evaluation. Today, in the era of more aggressive RA treatment, ultrasound examination (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are also frequently used. US is used to detect early signs of inflammation within the soft tissue. MRI allows to assess the soft tissue and bone marrow involvement in case of inflammation and/or infection...

The use of Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs) in orthopedic practice has recently and rapidly acquired an important role. Therapies based on the use of MSCs for the treatment of acute injuries as well as chronic inflammatory disorders are gradually becoming clinical routine. These cells have demonstrated intriguing therapeutic potentialities (i.e.: inflammation control, tissue regeneration and pathological scar prevention), that have been taken into consideration for use in both human and veterinary medicine...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a frequent complication of major orthopaedic surgery; prolonged prophylaxis with anticoagulants is standard of care. However, late manifestation of VTE is common and little is known about the predictors of late deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and the distribution of proximal and distal DVT and isolated calf muscle vein thrombosis (MVT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 482 patients admitted to a rehabilitation clinic (RC) after total hip or knee replacement (THR; TKR) or hip fracture surgery (HFS) underwent complete compression ultrasound (CCUS) screening for VTE within 72 hours after admission into RC...

Incidence of urolithiasis is on the rise due to climatic changes especially global warming.The pain due to presence of ureteric stone is a well known identity but many times it may be asymptomatic or even masked by concurrent presence of backache. In the present article, we describe the case of a 43-year-old male who came to the clinic for treatment of backache persisting for more than two years. The patient complained of backache two years back for which he was treated with analgesics and physiotherapy which relieved his pain...

Recurrent haemarthrosis is the final cause of haemophilic arthrosic disease in haemophilia patients. Therefore, it is essential to diagnose it early, both clinically and by imaging. In addition, haemophilia patients experience chronic synovitis, joint degeneration, muscle haematoma and pseudotumours. The objective of this article is to highlight the value of ultrasounds in the diagnosis and control of the evolution of musculo-skeletal problems in haemophilia patients. To this end, we have performed a literature search in the PubMed, Web of Science(®) (WOS) and SciVerse bases, using the following keywords: hemophilia or haemophilia and ultrasonography (US), ultrasound, echography and sonography...

Muscle performance is closely related to the architecture and dimensions of the muscle-tendon unit and the effect of maturation on these architectural characteristics in humans is currently unknown. This study determined whether there are differences in musculo-tendinous architecture between adults and children of both sexes. Fascicle length and pennation angle were measured from ultrasound images at three sites along the length of the vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis, vastis medialis and rectus femoris muscles...

Ultrasound can be used to study tendon movement. However, measurement of tendon movement is mostly based on manual tracking of anatomical landmarks such as the musculo-tendinous junction, limiting the applicability to a small number of muscle-tendon units. The aim of this study was to quantify tendon displacement without anatomical landmarks using a speckle tracking algorithm optimized for tendons in long B-mode image sequences. A dedicated two-dimensional multi-kernel block-matching scheme with subpixel motion estimation was devised to handle large displacements over long sequences...

Hip joint dysplasia is the commonest disorder of the musculo-skeletal system in childhood. The overall success of treatment is highly dependant on the early diagnosis. Clinical tests and ultrasound are the most popular methods for early diagnosis. The aim of our study was to estimate the possibilities of both methods for correct early diagnosis. A group of 1200 newborns was studied and the results were analyzed. Clinical methods of Ortolani and Barlow were used, as the ultrasound method according to Graf's technique...

BACKGROUND: Ankle pain and swelling following sports injuries are common presenting complaints to the accident and emergency department. Frequently these are diagnosed as musculoskeletal injuries, even when no definitive cause is found. Vascular injuries following trauma are uncommon and are an extremely rare cause of ankle swelling and pain. These injuries may however be limb threatening and are important to diagnose early, in order that appropriate treatment can be delivered. We highlight the steps to diagnosis of these injuries, and methods of managing these injuries...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the occurrence of the anatomical variations of the musculotendinous junction of the flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) muscle and the variations of its insertion onto the pisiform. One hundred cadaver specimens preserved according to Thiel's method were assessed. Following careful dissection, the distance between the musculotendinous junction and the pisiform and the width of the muscle belly were determined. Three typical anatomical variations were found: 1) a large muscle belly running distally almost to the insertion onto the pisiform; 2) the muscle belly ending more proximally, with some large fibres running parallel to the tendon and almost reaching the pisiform; 3) the musculotendinous junction ending more proximally, with only single fibres continuing distally...
