BACKGROUND: Most studies used hyaluronic acid (HA) requiring 3-5 intra-articular injections (IAJ) for knee osteoarthritis (KOA). OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the efficacy of a single IAJ of a novel HA by measuring the thickness of quadriceps and femoral intercondylar cartilage (FIC) under ultrasonography (US) in addition to subjective self-reported measures. METHODS: Forty-nine patients with KOA (Kellgren-Lawrence grades 2-3) received unilateral IAJ of HYAJOINT-Plus to the worse knee and were assessed at baseline and 1, 3 and 6-months after IAJ...

INTRODUCTION: Radiographic abnormalities of the symphysis as well as the formation of accessory clefts, indicating injury at the rectus-adductor aponeurosis, reportedly relate to longstanding groin pain in athletes. However, yet, no systematic classification for clinical and scientific purposes exists. We aimed to (1) create a radiographic classification based on symphysography; (2) test intra- and interobserver reliability; (3) characterise clinical significance of the morphologic patterns by evaluating success of injection therapy...

BACKGROUND: Lower proteoglycan density (PGD) of the articular cartilage may be an early marker of osteoarthritis following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACL-R). The purpose this study was to determine associations between the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcomes Score (KOOS) and PGD of the articular cartilage in the femur and tibia 12-months following ACL-R. METHODS: We evaluated KOOS pain, symptoms, function in activities of daily living (ADL), function in sport and recreation (Sport), and quality of life (QOL), as well as PGD using T1rho magnetic resonance imaging in 18 individuals 12...

Sujin Kim, Geun Young Lee, Yong Chan Ha
In this report, we present the case of an intra-articular synovial lipoma in a 58-year-old female with a coincident marked unilateral hip osteoarthritis. This patient suffered from right hip pain that developed gradually over 2 years. Physical examination noted decreased range of motion and evidence of impingement. MR and CT images showed an intra-articular fat-intense mass in the hip joint that was excised and confirmed as a synovial lipoma on histology. This case reveals that an intra-articular lipoma of the hip could be accompanied by pain or impingement and followed by hip osteoarthritis even in the absence of trauma...

INTRODUCTION: The management of pilon fractures remains a challenging issue. Due to the complexity of factors that influence the outcome, it has been questioned if anatomical reductions of articular fracture are relevant. The lack of a commonly accepted assessment of quality of fracture reduction compounded the uncertainty of the importance of anatomical reduction in pilon fracture. The current study aimed to define parameters that can better assess the reduction quality and to investigate the influence of reduction quality on functional outcomes...

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial, we investigated the postoperative analgesic effect of a single intra-articular injection of 40 mg methylprednisolone acetate (MP) administered 1 week before total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Forty-eight patients with high pain osteoarthritis (≥5 on a numeric rating scale during walk) and sensitization (pressure pain threshold <250 kPa), aged 50 to 80 years and scheduled for primary unilateral TKA under spinal anaesthesia were included. The primary outcome was the proportion of patients with moderate/severe pain during a 5-m walk test 24 hours postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Flare-ups of the hips are among the most feared and disabling complications of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) and are poorly understood. In order to better understand the nature of hip flare-ups in FOP, we evaluated 25 consecutive individuals with classic FOP (14 males, 11 females; 3-56years old, median age, 17years old) who presented with acute unilateral hip pain. RESULTS: All 25 individuals were suspected of having a flare-up of the hip based on clinical history and a favorable response to a four day course of high-dose oral prednisone...

Tuberculosis is a systemic disease which involves skeletal and articular system very rarely. Osteoarticular tuberculosis commonly occurs in the vertebral column and more rarely in the sacroiliac joints. In this study, we report a 44-years-old male patient with low-grade fever, malabsorption syndrome, abdominal and pelvic ascites and low-back pain, that underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT for identifying the cause of signs and symptoms after a negative abdominal CT and negative thorax radiography. The study revealed increased tracer uptake at the peritoneal ascites and at the right sacroiliac joint in absence of bone alteration suggesting a sacroiliitis...

BACKGROUND: Most patients experience moderate to severe pain after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We hypothesized that intraoperative treatment of cut bone surfaces with local anesthetic (preimplantation immersion anesthesia, PIA) would lead to decreased postoperative pain and opioid consumption. METHODS: Records of 76 patients who underwent unilateral, cemented TKA were retrospectively reviewed. For PIA patients, surgical wounds were immersed in local anesthetic solution immediately prior to component implantation...

Introduction. Cervicogenic headache is characterized by unilateral neck or face pain referred from various structures such as the cervical joints and intervertebral disks. A recent study of patients with cervical pain showed significant pain relief after cervical medial branch neurotomy but excluded patients with C1-2 joint pain. It remains unclear whether targeting this joint has potential for symptomatic relief. To address this issue, we present a case report of C1-2 joint ablation with positive outcomes...
