Gout is clinically characterized by episodes of monoarthritis, which not only typically affects the peripheral joints but also occasionally affect the axial joint, such as the sacroiliac joint (SIJ), and often mimics spondyloarthritis (SpA). Two cases of gout mimicking SpA are presented in the current paper. One patient was a 32-year-old man with a history of asymmetrical oligoarthritis of ankle and metatarsophalangeal joints (MTPJ). He had left gluteal pain for 2 weeks. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the bone erosion of the left SIJ...

Here we report the characteristics of a new synthesized ionic liquid, 1,9-di(N-naphthalen-2-ylimidazolium)nonane bis[(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]imide ([C9(2NPTim)2][(NTf2)2]), as a stationary phase by inverse gas chromatography. The McReynolds constants demonstrated that the [C9(2NPTim)2][(NTf2)2] had an average polarity of 667 and polarity number P.N.=75, suggesting its polar nature. The solvation properties of the new stationary phase were determined by the calculation of Abraham solvation system constants, whereby the results showed that its major interactions with the analytes included H-bond basicity (a), dipole-dipole (s) and dispersive (l) interactions...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate sacroiliac joint radiographic (X-SIJ) progression in patients with axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) and to evaluate the effects of inflammation on MRI (MRI-SIJ) on X-SIJ progression. METHODS: X-SIJ and MRI-SIJ at baseline and after 2 and 5 years in patients with recent onset axSpA from the DESIR cohort were scored by three central readers. Progression was defined as (1) the shift from non-radiographic (nr) to radiographic (r) sacroiliitis (by modified New York (mNY) criteria) or alternative criteria, (2) a change of at least one grade or (3) a change of at least one grade but ignoring a change from grade 0 to 1...

AIM: To reveal whether bone marrow edema (BME) may appear with osteitis condensans ilii (OCI) on sacroiliac joint (SIJ) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to evaluate the characteristics of BME demonstrated with OCI. METHOD: Altogether 27 symptomatic female OCI patients with both complete clinical records and SIJ-MRI examination data were enrolled for retrospective analysis. SIJ-MRI exams were retrospectively analyzed by two musculoskeletal radiologists. Patients were separated into BME group and non-BME group according to whether there was BME of SIJ demonstrated as high signal intensity on MR short tau inversion recovery sequences beneath the SIJ articular surface...

We investigated the degree of pain reduction following intra-articular (IA) pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) stimulation of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) in patients with chronic SIJ pain that had not responded to IA corticosteroid injection. Twenty patients were recruited. Clinical outcomes after applying PRF stimulation of the SIJ were evaluated by a numeric rating scale (NRS) and a 7-point Likert scale. The NRS scores significantly changed over time. The NRS scores at 1, 2, and 3 months after PRF were significantly lower than those before PRF...

BACKGROUND: Dysfunction of the Sacroiliac Joint (SIJ) is one of the key sources of low back pain. For prolonged pain relief, some patients undergo fluoroscopic guided radio-frequency (RF) ablation of SIJ, during which a number of RF probes are inserted to create thermal lesions that disrupt the posterior sacral nerve supply. This procedure is minimally invasive, laborious, time-consuming and costly. To study if High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) ablation is a feasible alternative approach to SIJ pain treatment, we performed experiments using HIFU to ablate SIJ in the swine model...

BACKGROUND: Studies have shown that structural lesions may be present in patients with non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA). However, the relevance of structural lesions in these patients is unclear, particularly without signs of inflammation on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We assessed the presence of structural lesions at baseline on MRI in the sacroiliac joints (SIJ) of patients with nr-axSpA with and without SIJ inflammation on MRI. METHODS: Bone marrow edema (BME) was assessed on short tau inversion recovery (STIR) scans from 185 patients with nr-axSpA, by two independent readers at baseline using the Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada (SPARCC) score...

OBJECTIVE: We tested the hypothesis that fat metaplasia on MRI of the sacroiliac joints (SIJ) increases the propensity for new bone formation in the spine of patients with spondyloarthritis. METHODS: We assessed baseline T1-weighted and short τ inversion recovery SIJ MRIs from patients in the Follow Up Research Cohort in Ankylosing Spondylitis (FORCAST). Radiographic progression was assessed using the modified Stoke Ankylosing Spondylitis Spine Score (mSASSS). Structural and inflammatory lesions were scored using the Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada (SPARCC) SIJ structural and SPARCC SIJ inflammation scores, respectively...

The studies aimed to assess a set of biomarkers for their correlations with disease activity/severity of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). A total of 24 AS patients were treated with etanercept and prospectively followed for 12 weeks. Serum levels of TNF-α, IFN-γ, TGF-β, IL6, IL15, IL17, MMP3, and MICA were measured at baseline and after treatment. The change of these biomarkers was analyzed for correlations with MRI indices for joint inflammation, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index, AS Disease Activity Score, serum CRP, and ESR...

BACKGROUND: Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain is an under-recognized condition. Substantial information supports the safety and effectiveness of SIJ fusion (SIJF). Long-term follow-up after SIJF has not been reported. OBJECTIVE: To determine responses to conservative management (CM), SIJ denervation, and SIJF in patients with SIJ pain unresponsive to CM. METHODS: Retrospective study with long-term (up to 6 yr) follow-up of 137 patients with SIJ pain seen in an outpatient neurosurgery clinic who received either CM (n = 63), sacroiliac denervation (n = 47), or minimally invasive SIJF (n = 27)...

The sacroiliac joints (SIJs) are one of the most common sites involved in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), and there are few studies on the histopathology of the SIJ in this group of patients.Mononuclear cell infiltrates in the bone marrow and fibrous tissue resembling a pannus formation were the pathological features of early sacroiliitis in our previous study. We undertook a further immunohistological evaluation of these features in patients with axSpA.Biopsy specimens from the SIJ of 6 patients with established ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and 13 patients with nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: The symptoms of sacroiliac joint (SIJ) disorders are usually detected in the buttock and groin, and occasionally referred to the thigh and leg. However, lumbar disorders also cause symptoms in these same body regions. The presence of a characteristic, symptomatic pattern in the legs would be useful for diagnosing SIJ disorders. This study aimed to identify specific leg symptoms in patients with SIJ pain originating from the posterior sacroiliac ligament and determine the rate of occurrence of these symptoms...

Objectives.: In patients with active axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), inflammation in the SIJ or spine on MRI, an elevated CRP level or both are considered useful objective assessments for disease activity and initiation of TNF antagonists. The aim of this post hoc analysis of the randomized, double-blind ABILITY-1 study (NCT00939003) was to assess changes in objective inflammation over time. Methods.: Patients with non-radiographic axSpA (nr-axSpA) were randomized to receive adalimumab 40 mg every other week or placebo for 12 weeks in ABILITY-1...

BACKGROUND: Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) disease is increasingly recognized as a common source of low back pain. Arthrodesis of the SIJ has been shown to be clinically effective for this condition. In the last decade, minimally invasive (MI) SIJ fusion procedures have been developed to achieve the clinical effectiveness of open fusion procedures, with lower operative morbidity and faster recovery. However, SIJ fusion patients occasionally present with symptomatic nonunions necessitating revision...
