Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of arthritis and one of the main causes of chronic pain. Although opioids are frequently employed for chronic pain treatment, their usage for osteoarthritis pain remains controversial due to the associated adverse effects. Most guidelines reserve their use for refractory pain in patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis. The situation is even more complex in Latin America, where the prevalence of insufficient pain treatment is high because of the limited availability and use of strong opioids...

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is the most common type of arthritis all over the world. Obesity is the strongest modifiable risk factor and causes OA through a combination metabolic factors and mechanical loading. This study aimed to determine the frequency of metabolic syndrome (Mets) among patients with knee OA and its relationship with pain and functional status. This was a descriptive hospital-based cross-sectional study involving patients with knee OA. Pain was measured using a 0-10 numeric rating visual analog scale (VAS)...

This cross-sectional study investigated the prevalence of depressive state and association between depressive state and serum interleukin (IL)-6 levels in knee osteoarthritis (OA) patients. A total of 115 painful knee OA patients were enrolled and divided into two groups according to the radiographic OA severity. Pain was evaluated using a visual analog scale (VAS). Depressive state was assessed by the self-rating depression scale (SDS). Serum IL-6 levels were also measured. Pearson's correlation coefficient was used to assess the correlation between the variants tested, and logistic regression analysis was used to identify factors associated with the depressive state...

OBJECTIVE: Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is among the higher contributors to global disability. Despite its high prevalence, currently, there is no cure for this disease. Furthermore, the available diagnostic approaches have large precision errors and low sensitivity. Therefore, there is a need for new biomarkers to correctly identify early knee OA. METHOD: We have created an analytics pipeline based on machine learning to identify small models (having few variables) that predict the 30-months incidence of knee OA (using multiple clinical and structural OA outcome measures) in overweight middle-aged women without knee OA at baseline...

INTRODUCTION: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent painful condition of the musculoskeletal system. The effectiveness of current analgesic options has proven to be limited and improved analgesic treatment is needed. Several randomised placebo-controlled trials have now demonstrated the efficacy of duloxetine, an antidepressant with a centrally acting effect, in the treatment of OA pain. The aim of the current study is to investigate if duloxetine is effective and cost-effective as a third-choice analgesic added to usual care for treating chronic pain compared with usual care alone in general practice...

OBJECTIVE: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disabling and highly prevalent condition affecting millions worldwide. Pain is the major complaint of OA patients and is presently inadequately managed. It manifests as mechanical allodynia, a painful response to innocuous stimuli such as joint movement. Allodynia is due in part to the sensitization of articular nociceptors to mechanical stimuli. These nociceptors respond to noxious mechanical stimuli applied to their terminals via the expression of depolarizing high-threshold mechanosensitive ion channels (MSICs) that convert painful mechanical forces into electrical signals...

BACKGROUND: Clinical observations note that foot pain can be linked to contralateral pain at the knee or hip, yet we are unaware of any community-based studies that have investigated the sidedness of pain. Because clinic-based patient samples are often different from the general population, the purpose of this study was to determine whether knee or hip pain is more prevalent with contralateral foot pain than with ipsilateral foot pain in a population-based cohort. METHODS: Framingham Foot Study participants (2002-2008) with information on foot, knee, and hip pain were included in this cross-sectional analysis...

BACKGROUND: Knee osteoarthritis is a highly prevalent degenerative joint disorder characterized by joint tissue damage and pain. Knee joint distraction has been introduced as a joint preserving surgical procedure to postpone knee arthroplasty. An often used standard externally fixation device for distraction poses a burden to patients due to the absence of joint flexion during the 6weeks treatment. Therefore, a personalized articulating distraction device was developed. The aim of this study was to test technical feasibility of this device...
