INTRODUCTION: It has been realized that for osteoarthritis (OA) knee with varus deformity, posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) release resulted in the increase of the flexion gap without significant effect on the extension gap. While the effect of release on gap angle is still obscure. On the other hand, gap distance and varus angle measured under different distraction forces suggest different patterns. OBJECTIVES: In the current study, mechanical gap balance in displacement and angular alternation of extension and flexion gaps will be evaluated, with PCL fully retained or resected under different distracting forces in varus knees...

OBJECTIVE: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a complex disease of the whole joint. Glucosamine (GlcN) treatment may have a chondroprotective effect on OA. We investigated the mechanism of action of glucosamine treatment through interleukin-10 (Il-10) and transforming growth factor β-1 (TGF β-1). METHODS: Thirty male albino rats were used. A single intraarticular (i.a.) injection of 2mg of Monosodium Iodoacetate (MIA) was injected into the knee joint of anesthetized rats...

Our aim was to assess the outcome in patients with total wrist arthroplasty performed for end stage wrist osteoarthritis. We analysed the ranges of motion of operated and un-operated wrists using a flexible electrogoniometer during the Sollerman hand function test. We assessed grip strength with a digital dynamometer and completed patient reported outcome scores more than one year post-operatively. We reviewed 12 patients with a mean age of 64 (range 48-82) years. The flexion-extension arc was 72% and radioulnar deviation arc was 53% of the un-operated side but the total range of motion (area of circumduction) was 43% of the un-operated side and only 20% of the circumduction in age and gender-matched normal volunteers...

BACKGROUND: Trapeziometacarpal arthrodesis (TMA) has been complicated by nonunion and hardware failure. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We hypothesized that modification of the TMA technique with a locking cage plate construct would afford reliable bony union while producing greater hand function than trapeziectomy with ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition (LRTI) at early follow-up. METHODS: We enrolled 36 consecutive patients with trapeziometacapal osteoarthritis (14 TMA patients (15 thumbs), 22 LRTI patients (22 thumbs))...

To evaluate, by means of a longitudinal study, radiographic involvement of metacarpophalangeal and radio-carpal joints in hand osteoarthritis, its relationship with erosive disease and its progression, 368 patients with hand osteoarthritis were enrolled. All patients underwent hand X-rays. On the basis of the presence of central erosions in interphalangeal joints, patients were divided into three groups: 0-no central erosions, 1-one joint with central erosion, and 2-two or more joints with central erosions...

CONTEXT: Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) display pathogenic behavior. Various members of the Wnt pathway, especially the canonical Wnt/β-catenin cascade, may contribute to autonomous RA FLS activation. It has been shown that the two Wnt inhibitors: sFRP3 and DKK1 contribute to several critical aspects of joint biology. However, their effects on RA FLS are poorly characterized. The aim of our study was to investigate the effects of sFRP3 and DKK1 on FLS markers, Wnt components, and target oncogenes expression by RA FLS and compare the findings to osteoarthritic (OA) FLS...

BACKGROUND: Hand osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent joint disease that may lead to pain, stiffness and problems in performing hand-related activities of daily living. Currently, no cure for OA is known, and non-pharmacological modalities are recommended as first-line care. A positive effect of exercise in hip and knee OA has been documented, but the effect of exercise on hand OA remains uncertain. OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits and harms of exercise compared with other interventions, including placebo or no intervention, in people with hand OA...

INTRODUCTION: This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a new hand-held navigation system. The authors of this study hypothesize that this navigation system will improve overall lower limb alignment and implant placement without causing a delay in surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two hundred consecutive patients diagnosed with tricompartmental osteoarthritis and underwent total knee arthroplasty by a senior surgeon were included in this study. One hundred patients underwent TKA using the hand-held navigation system, while the other 100 patients underwent TKA using the conventional technique...

: Thumb carpometacarpal joint replacement is associated with high rates of loosening and failure. We present our results for an uncemented ceramic-ceramic total joint prosthesis with a reverse ball-and-socket design and bioactive coating. Between 2008 and 2012, 29 prostheses were inserted into 28 patients (mean age 63 years) with advanced osteoarthritis. After a mean period of 33 months (range 9-62), 26 patients (27 implants) were available for follow-up. Six months postoperatively, 50% of the patients had radiological evidence of early loosening...
