OBJECTIVES: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common chronic rheumatic disease in children, with heterogeneous clinical features. Although therapeutic options are wide and in the majority of children symptoms improve with the combination of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and disease-modifying drugs, there are a number of patients who do not respond to conventional therapy and who do not meet the criteria for systemic biologics, namely anti TNF-alpha. Those patients are potential candidates for intraarticular therapy with biologics and in this report we present the results of intra-articular infliximab treatment in a series of patients diagnosed with oligoarticular subtype of JIA...

Recently, the growing emphasis on medical ultrasound (US) has led to a rapid development of US extended field-of-view (EFOV) techniques. US EFOV techniques can be classified into three categories: 2-D US EFOV, 3-D US, and 3-D US EFOV. In this paper, we propose a novel EFOV method called 2.5-D US EFOV that combines both the advantages of the 2-D US EFOV and the 3-D US by generating a panorama on a curved image plane guided by a curved scanning trajectory of the US probe. In 2.5-D US EFOV, the real-time position and orientation of the US image plane can be recorded via an electromagnetic spatial sensor attached to the probe...

BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease leading to pain and disability for which no curative treatment exists. A promising biological treatment for OA is intra-articular administration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP injections in OA joints can relieve pain, although the exact working mechanism is unclear. PURPOSE: To examine the effects of PRP releasate (PRPr) on pain, cartilage damage, and synovial inflammation in a mouse OA model. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study...

Jackie L Nam, Maria Antonietta D'Agostino
Early diagnosis and treatment improves outcomes for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Studies have shown that musculoskeletal ultrasound is more sensitive than clinical examination in identifying synovitis. This review aims to address the role of ultrasound in identifying (1) patients with early inflammatory arthritis (IA) at risk of progression to RA and (2) those without clinical synovitis at risk of progression to early IA and therefore early RA.

BACKGROUND: Accurate diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders relies heavily on the physical examination, including accurate palpation of musculoskeletal structures. The literature suggests that there has been a deterioration of physical examination skills among medical students and residents, in part due to increased reliance on advanced imaging. It has been shown that knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and physical examination skills improve with the use of ultrasound; however, the literature is limited...

The developmental goal of 3D ultrasound imaging (3DUS) is to engineer a modality to perform 3D morphological ultrasound analysis of human muscles. 3DUS images are constructed from calibrated freehand 2D B-mode ultrasound images, which are positioned into a voxel array. Ultrasound (US) imaging allows quantification of muscle size, fascicle length, and angle of pennation. These morphological variables are important determinants of muscle force and length range of force exertion. The presented protocol describes an approach to determine volume and fascicle length of m...

Ultrasound has emerged as one of the most utilized tools to diagnose musculoskeletal disorders and to assist in interventions. Traditionally, sonographic examination of the hip joint has been challenging because most of the major structures are deeply situated, thus requiring the use of curvilinear transducer for better penetrance. The posterior lateral hip is a frequent area for musculoskeletal pain and nerve entrapments. Common disorders include greater trochanteric pain syndrome, gluteus medius tendinopathy, piriformis syndrome, pudendal neuralgia, and proximal hamstring tendinopathy...

Objective: The aim of our study was to determine inter-observer agreement in the ultrasonographic identification of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and in the evaluation of its length and thickness in healthy subjects. Methods: 80 healthy volunteers (160 knees) (42 males and 38 females) were enrolled in the study. All subjects underwent ultrasound (US) examination of both knees, performed by two physicians with over ten years of musculoskeletal US experience. In order to keep the ALL under optimal tension, the knee was flexed at approximately 30-35°, slightly internally rotated and length and thickness of the ligament were measured...

Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a neurovascular condition involving the upper extremity, which is known to occur in individuals who perform chronic repetitive upper extremity activities. We prospectively evaluate the incidence of TOS in high-performance musicians who played bowed string musicians. Sixty-four high-performance string instrument musicians from orchestras and professional musical bands were included in the study. Fifty-two healthy volunteers formed an age-matched control group. Bilateral upper extremity duplex scanning for subclavian vessel compression was performed in all subjects...

Often, physical therapy students struggle with the skill and the confidence to perform manual techniques for musculoskeletal examination. Current teaching methods lack concurrent objective feedback. Real-time ultrasound imaging (RTUI) has the advantage of generating visualization of anatomical structures in real-time in an efficient and safe manner. We hypothesize that the use of RTUI to augment teaching with concurrent objective visual feedback will result in students' improved ability to create a change in joint space when performing a manual knee traction and higher confidence scores...

REVIEW
Ross Mathiasen, Christopher Hogrefe
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To provide a primary care perspective regarding the evaluation and management of shoulder pain and rotator cuff tears. RECENT FINDINGS: In the primary care setting, rotator cuff pathology is commonly encountered. Information regarding the risks of oral medications for the management of the associated pain keeps mounting. Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears remain difficult to diagnose with a single imaging modality. Musculoskeletal education in medical schools and non-orthopaedic residency and fellowship training programs continues to be an area for additional improvement...

Essentials The best imaging modality for joint blood detection in hemophilia is unknown. Blood appearance and detection thresholds were studied with ultrasound and conventional MRI. Ultrasound is sensitive to low volume and concentration of blood, whereas conventional MRI is not. The findings establish the validity of ultrasound for rapid bleed detection in hemophilia care. SUMMARY: Background There is increasing demand for musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) to detect hemophilic joint bleeding, but there is uncertainty regarding blood detection concentration thresholds or if magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is more accurate...
