Muhanned Ali, Elisabeth Brogren, Philippe Wagner, Isam Atroshi
BACKGROUND: The long-term effect of distal radial fracture malunion on activity limitations is unknown. Between 2001 and 2002, we conducted a prospective cohort study of all patients with distal radial fracture treated with casting or percutaneous fixation in northeast Scania in Sweden. In that original study, the patients completed the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire at baseline and at 2 years. We performed a long-term follow-up study of patients who were 18 to 65 years of age at the time of the fracture to investigate the association between fracture malunion and activity limitations...

PURPOSE: The unfavorable safety profiles of commonly prescribed knee osteoarthritis (OA) treatments have led clinicians and patients to seek safer alternatives. Research has suggested that curcuminoid and boswellia formulations could moderate key inflammatory pathways that are associated with worsening symptoms and disease progression. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of these treatments vs. placebo or NSAIDs for knee OA. METHODS: We searched Medline, EMBASE, Google Scholar, Web of Science and the Cochrane database from inception to February 21, 2018...

REVIEW
Edward Roddy, Hylton B Menz
Foot osteoarthritis (OA) is a common problem in older adults yet is under-researched compared to knee or hand OA. Most existing studies focus on the first metatarsophalangeal joint, with evidence relating to midfoot OA being particularly sparse. Symptomatic radiographic foot OA affects 17% of adults aged 50 years and over. The first metatarsophalangeal joint is most commonly affected, followed by the second cuneometatarsal and talonavicular joints. Epidemiological studies suggest the existence of distinct first metatarsophalangeal joint and polyarticular phenotypes, which have differing clinical and risk factor profiles...

Evidence of efficacy of a traditional herbal formula Xianlinggubao (XLGB) for treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) is limited. The present study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of XLGB in the management of patients with knee and hand OA. This was a multicenter, stratified, open-label, randomized controlled trial conducted at six centers in China. People aged 40 or above, diagnosed with OA of the knee or hand, were randomly assigned to the XLGB treatment group or watchful waiting control group. Main outcome measures were the changes in the numeric pain rating scales (NPRS) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC) or the Australian/Canadian Osteoarthritis Hand Index (AUSCAN) scores, from baseline to 6 months...

OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Osteoarthritis is a multifactorial joint disease with a significant role of the genetic factor. The numerous studies have demonstrated that genetic dependence is specific for individual hand, hip and knee regions with a genetic contribution to the pathogenesis of osteoarthrosis varying from 40% to 65%. To assess the role of leptin gene receptor functional activity disturbance in the pathogenesis of osteoarthrosis, it is important to study the relationship between the LEPR gene polymorphism and a number of clinical and laboratory parameters...

#10

Background: The trapeziometacarpal joint (TMCJ) is inherently unstable, relying on ligament restraint to prevent subluxation. Subluxation of the thumb in a dorsoradial direction is often observed in clinical practice, either after acute ligament injury or more commonly with osteoarthritis (OA). This subluxation follows loss of function of trapeziometacarpal ligaments that stabilise this joint, resisting the deforming force of abductor pollicis longus (APL). The exact ligaments that stabilise and prevent the thumb from the pull of APL causing dorsoradial subluxation remain unknown, although the anterior oblique ligament (AOL) has been implicated...

BACKGROUND: Laying on of hands (LooH) is a culturally-accepted therapy in several traditions. In Brazil, "Spiritism" (third-largest religious tradition in number of followers) uses LooH with the name of "Spiritist Passe" (SP). However, there are few studies assessing SP's role in medical outcomes. The present study aims to investigate the effects of LooH, with and without a spiritual context, on pain, joint stiffness, and functional capacity of older women (≥60 years old) with knee osteoarthritis (KOA)...
