INTRODUCTION: Colorectal cancer commonly metastasises to the liver, peritoneum and lungs. Bony metastases are uncommon in colorectal cancer and in particular metastases to the hands or feet (acrometastasis) are an extremely rare occurrence. CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old male with a colonic malignancy underwent elective anterior resection. Intra-operatively he was found to have a pelvic collection necessitating an end colostomy. Histology confirmed complete Dukes B tumour excision with no evidence of lymph node metastases...

Scapholunate advance collapse (SLAC) and Scaphoid nonunion advance collapse (SNAC), are the two most common patterns of postraumatic wrist arthritis. SLAC wrist develops after attenuation, either traumatically or atraumatically, of the scapholunate ligament. Atraumatic causes of SLAC wrist include calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate deposition disease, reumathoid arthritis, neuropathic diseases, and b2-microglobulin asociated amyloid deposition diseases. On the other hand, SNAC wrist develops following a scahpoid fracture that has progressed to a nonunion...

Scaphoid nonunion represents a challenging problem that leads to disability if neglected. Vascularized bone grafts are proposed to augment the local biology and increase the likelihood of union but long-term outcomes are sparse. In this work, we present the mid- to long-term outcome of 140 scaphoid nonunions managed with vascularized bone grafts from the distal radius. Sixteen patients underwent concomitant closed wedge osteotomy of the distal radius because of arthritic changes. There were 130 males and ten females, with mean time from injury to surgery 3...

: Unstable distal phalanx fractures are typically treated by pinning of the distal phalanx or the distal interphalangeal joint (DIP). Complications include unstable fixation, K-wire migration, septic arthritis and osteoarthritis. To limit these complications, we wanted to explore the benefits of using locked extra-articular DIP pinning. The cohort consisted of 12 patients (mean age 36.3 years) who had an extra-articular (6 cases) or intra-articular distal phalanx fracture (6 cases). All patients were treated surgically with a construct consisting of two connected K-wires: one was placed inside the shaft of the distal phalanx and the other was placed perpendicular to the middle phalanx...

BACKGROUND: Atlantoaxial spondyloarthropathy is most often resulted from rheumatoid arthritis, cancer metastasis and basilar invagination. Dialysis-related spondyloarthropathy is a rare cause of spinal deformity and cervical myelopathy at the atlantoaxial joint. We report two long-term hemodialysis patients who presented with atlantoaxial spondyloarthropathy. CASE DESCRIPTION: Two patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRD) presented with history of progressively worsening neck pain and motion limitation, and gait disturbance...

A 55 year-old African American man presented to the Emergency Room with acute-onset fevers, chills, and bilateral thumb pain, swelling, and redness. MRI revealed extensive cellulitis involving bilateral hands and wrists, along with fluid collection and carpal bone erosion on the left. Given concerns for septic arthritis and osteomyelitis, patient underwent surgical debridement revealing an abscess in the wrist without osteomyelitis. Blood cultures grew Pasteurella multocida. Subsequently, patient noted two pet dogs at home, but no history of bites...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Inflammatory changes in joint tissues can be detected by modern imaging techniques in osteoarthritis patients, but may be clinically subtle compared with many other types of arthritis. These changes associate with disease progression and clinical severity, and many inflammatory mediators may have biomarker utility. Moreover, a number of inflammatory mechanisms play a role in animal models of disease, but it is still not clear which mechanisms predominate and might be therapeutically manipulated most effectively...

The TACTYS(®) implant is a new anatomic gliding articular and modular prosthesis for the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. We report preliminary results with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Twenty-two patients with a mean age of 63 years were operated on at a single center by two senior hand surgeons. Indications were painful and stiff PIP joints. The joint damage was caused by osteoarthritis (18 cases), post-traumatic arthritis (3) and rheumatoid arthritis (1). All prostheses were implanted through a dorsal mid-line transtendinous approach...

A 42-year-old woman presented with an intermittent fever and chest and back pain, and an abnormal chest shadow was detected. She was diagnosed with paragonimiasis caused by Paragonimus westermani. Praziquantel therapy improved the abnormal chest shadow, but did not relieve her symptoms. She was also diagnosed with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), and colchicine therapy resolved her symptoms. She subsequently developed arthralgia and morning stiffness in her hands. We also diagnosed the patient with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and corticosteroid and salazosulfapyridine therapy improved her symptoms...

New studies increase the evidence, that different applications of physical therapy are effective. In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) physiotherapy of the hands improve strength, joint mobility and activity without increased risk of pain nor inflammation. A theory-based physiotherapy of the hands shows clinical effectiveness and cost-utility. In patients with spondyloarthritides supervised group exercise training is more effective than home exercise programs. Compared with biologics only combined exercise training and tumour necrosis factor alpha inhibitor therapy improve mobility and disease activity more effectively...

OBJECTIVE: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes destruction of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints leading to hand deformities, pain, and loss of function. This study prospectively assessed long-term functional and health-related quality of life outcomes in RA patients with severe deformity at the MCP joints. METHODS: RA patients between the ages of 18-80 with severe deformity at the MCP joints were referred to one of the three study sites. Subjects who elected to undergo silicone metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty (SMPA) while continuing with medical management were followed in the SMPA cohort...

Radial head fractures are common injuries, occurring mostly in active young people 85%. Treatment of the more complex radial head fractures (Mason type III and IV), appear to be challenging and remain a subject of controversy. Replacement of the radial head with a metal prosthesis imitates the stabilizing role of the radial head and has been considered as the treatment of choice. However, long-term results are scarce. We report our mid to long-term (mean 9.4 year) clinical and radiographic results after insertion of a Judet Bipolar Radial Head prosthesis...

BACKGROUND: In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) clinical measures of disease activity may not reliably discriminate between patients with active inflammatory disease and those with concomitant fibromyalgia (FM). Recent work has shown RA patients with a 28 tender joint count (TJC) minus swollen joint count (SJC) of 7 or more (joint count criteria) are more likely to meet classification criteria for FM. This study aimed to determine whether RA patients meeting clinical criteria for FM had lower levels of joint inflammation as determined by ultrasound (US)...

Background: It is often assumed that leg amputations result in a greater risk of degenerative changes to the locomotor system. This paper analysed the extent to which this assumption is supported by the scientific literature. In particular, the study analysed the level of risk of various degenerative diseases in amputees. Method: A systematic literature search was conducted in scientific databases on degenerative changes caused by amputations. All pertinent articles were qualitatively analysed; the available quantitative results were summarised and compared to data for the able bodied population...

Cystic tuberculosis of the bone is a rare form of tuberculosis (TB). The condition presents like Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) of children. In children, the lesions symmetrically involve the peripheral skeleton, which are less sclerotic than adults. A case report is presented here where the patient presented with i) the extensive involvement of bones with cystic lesion, ii) Hand & feet involvement with multiple bony exostosis iii) Synovial swelling of multiple joints and 4) fever for 6 months. Swelling of the joints was disproportionately greater than pain...
