BACKGROUND: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a suggested diagnosis for pain in the hip in the absence of other apparent causes. It is thought to be a cause of progressive arthrosis of the hip. Our objective was to determine the prevalence of radiographic data of FAI in the adult population without hip pathology over a period of six months. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Analytical, observational, multicentric, ambispective and transverse study based on digital X-rays analysis...

Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) has been recently identified as a bone-resorbing factor. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between plasma GGT fractions levels and bone quality. Plasma GGT fractions were analysed by gel-filtration chromatography. Bone quality was established quantitatively by two micro-CT derived microarchitectural parameters: the BV/TV (mineralised bone volume/total volume), and the SMI (structure model index) that describes the rod-like (low resistant) or plate-like (high-resistant) shape of bone trabeculae...

Degenerative joint disease (DJD) of the ankle is a debilitating chronic disease associated with severe pain and dysfunction resulting in antalgic gait alteration. Little information is available about segmental foot and ankle motion distribution during gait in ankle osteoarthritis. The aim of the current study was to dynamically characterize segmental foot and ankle kinematics of patients with severe ankle arthrosis requiring total ankle replacement. This was a prospective study involving 36 (19 M, 17 F) adult patients with a clinical diagnosis of ankle arthrosis ("DJD" group) and 36 (23 M, 13 F) healthy subjects ("Control" group)...

BACKGROUND: Both anatomic (TSA) and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) are common interventions for glenohumeral arthrosis, with the goal of relieving pain and restoring mobility. Understanding shoulder arthroplasty motion and frequency is of interest in evaluating effectiveness and in predicting bearing wear for implant development and optimization. The purpose of this study was to measure and compare the total daily shoulder motion of patients after TSA and RTSA. METHODS: Thirty-six human subjects who had undergone shoulder arthroplasty wore a custom instrumented garment that tracked upper extremity motion for the waking hours of 1 day...

BACKGROUND: Current studies demonstrate encouraging short-term results after primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) suture anchor repair. However, earlier studies reported deterioration of knee function at 5-year follow-up following good clinical short-term recovery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate clinical long-term results after primary ACL repair at a minimum 5-year follow-up. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 13 patients were included between 2009 and 2012...

Karel Pavelka
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most frequent joint disease, whereas etiopathogenesis of OA is not entirely clarified. It is a heterogeneous disorder and genetic as well as biomechanical, endocrine and inflammatory effects may be involved in its origin. The author examines the problems concerning relationships between the metabolic syndrome and OA, and states that the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in patients with OA is higher than in those without OA (59 % vs 23 %). It remains problematic that one of the main components of metabolic syndrome is obesity which in itself is a risk factor for arthrosis development in the weight-bearing joints, not for OA in the hands...

Injury to the lunotriquetral ligament can result in midcarpal instability, with resultant alterations in normal wrist kinematics and subsequent arthrosis. We performed a previously undescribed technique of lunotriquetral ligament reconstruction in two patients utilizing a palmaris longus tendon autograft. Average age at presentation was 24 years old with a mean follow up of 10 months. Average range of motion was 62.5° of flexion and 57.5° of extension. Total arc of motion was 83% of the contralateral uninvolved extremity...

Referral for shoulder joint replacement in patients with glenohumeral arthrosis may be delayed in the primary sector. When non-surgical first-line treatment has little effect on pain and quality of life, patients should be referred for orthopaedic specialist assessment. New trends regarding shoulder prosthesis are under way as indicated by data from the Danish Shoulder Alloplasty Registry from the latest decade with an increase in number and quality. Changed demographic composition in favour of the elderly makes focus on the importance of shoulder prosthesis regarding research and treatment algorithm...

Running is one of the most popular sports among the adult Danish population. Overuse injuries of the knee, such as runners knee, jumpers knee, patello-femoral pain syndrome and patello-femoral pre-arthrosis, are common and cause reduction of the health beneficial physical activity. Treatment should primarily focus on adjustment of training habits and physiotherapeutic guided rehabilitation. Other treatment options include changing landing pattern during running, corticosteroid injections, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and ultimately surgery...

BACKGROUND: A common adage among hand surgeons is that the symptoms of trapeziometacarpal (TMC) arthrosis vary among patients independent of the radiographic severity. We studied factors associated with radiographic severity of TMC arthrosis, thumb pain, thumb-specific disability, pinch strength, and grip strength in patients not seeking care for TMC arthrosis. Our primary null hypothesis was that there are no factors independently associated with radiographic severity of TMC arthrosis according to the Eaton classification among patients not seeking care for TMC arthrosis...

PURPOSE: Gradual onset diseases (eg, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, and trapeziometacarpal arthrosis) tend to go unnoticed for years. When a slowly progressive disease transitions from asymptomatic to symptomatic, it may seem like an acute event. The primary aim of this study was to determine the percentage of patients who perceive the slowly progressive disease as having started within 1 year. We also hypothesized that (1) there would be no factors associated with perception of an onset of disease within 1 year, more specifically among patients with advanced disease; and (2) there would be no difference in a decision to pursue operative treatment between patients who perceived the onset of the disease to be recent and those who perceived it to be long-standing...

PURPOSE: We conducted a population-level analysis comparing proximal row carpectomy (PRC) and partial wrist arthrodesis (PWA) for treatment of chronic wrist arthritis to (1) characterize national practice patterns, (2) determine the rate of conversion to total wrist arthrodesis (TWA), and (3) calculate the associated direct cost of care. METHODS: Using the Truven MarketScan databases from 2009 to 2015, we identified patients 18 years or older with a diagnosis of wrist osteoarthritis who had a PRC or PWA and were followed for 18 months...
