A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)

The human T cell leukemia virus type I-tax gene is responsible for the development of both inflammatory polyarthropathy resembling rheumatoid arthritis and noninflammatory ankylotic arthropathy in transgenic mice. (1/85)

We previously reported that inflammatory arthropathy resembling rheumatoid arthritis (RA) develops among transgenic mice carrying the long terminal repeat (LTR)-env-pX-LTR region of human T cell leukemia virus type I (LTR-pX-Tg mice). Because four genes are encoded in this region, we produced transgenic mice that only express the tax gene to examine its role in the development of arthritis. Transgenic mice were produced by constructing DNAs that express the tax gene alone under the control of either its own LTR or CD4 enhancer/promoter and by microinjecting them into C3H/HeN-fertilized ova. We produced seven transgenic mice carrying the LTR-tax gene and nine mice carrying the CD4-tax and found that one of the LTR-tax-Tg mice and five of CD4-tax-Tg mice developed RA-like inflammatory arthropathy similar to LTR-pX-Tg mice, indicating that the tax gene is arthritogenic. On the other hand, the other two LTR-tax-Tg mice had ankylotic changes caused by new bone formation without inflammation. In these ankylotic mice, tax mRNA, inflammatory cytokine mRNA, and autoantibody levels except for TGF-beta1 level were lower than those in LTR-pX- or CD4-tax-Tg mice. These results show that Tax is responsible for the development of inflammatory arthropathy resembling RA and that this protein also causes ankylotic arthropathy.  (+info)

Total knee arthroplasty in bony ankylosis in gross flexion. (2/85)

Between June 1993 and December 1994, we performed total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on 27 knees in 24 patients with spontaneous bony ankylosis in severe flexion. The mean age at operation was 43.5 years (30 to 60). No patient had preoperative pain. Three were unable to walk and 21 could manage less than five blocks. The mean duration of the ankylosis was 18.7 years (13 to 25) and its mean position was 105 degree flexion (75 to 135). The preoperative Hospital for Special Surgery Knee Score of 60 points was improved to 87 at the final follow-up three to five years later. All knees were free from pain. The mean range of active flexion in 24 knees was 97 degrees (78 to 115) and the mean arc of movement 91 degrees (78 to 98). The mean fixed flexion deformity was 6 degrees (0 to 25) and the extension lag 8 degrees (0 to 25). Angular deformity was corrected to between 0 degrees and 10 degrees of valgus. Four patients were able to walk one block and 20 five to seven blocks. Thirteen knees (48%) showed some necrosis at the skin edge; one knee required arthrodesis and another resection arthroplasty. One had a recurrence of tuberculous infection requiring arthrodesis. One patient had a rupture of the quadriceps tendon. To date no prosthesis has required revision for loosening. Radiolucency of 1 mm or less about the tibial prosthesis was observed at follow-up in four of the 24 knees. Our results have shown that one-stage TKA and skeletal traction after operation can achieve correction of severe flexion deformity of the knee with marked improvement in the function and quality of life.  (+info)

Temporomandibular joint ankylosis: the Egyptian experience. (3/85)

This is a review of 204 patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis treated according to a definitive protocol in the Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Department of the Alexandria University Hospital during the period 1990-1996 with a follow-up varying from 1.5 to 7 years. A history of trauma was confirmed in 98% of cases. Patients were grouped into: (1) Those with ankylosis not associated with facial deformities. The management involves release of the ankylosed joint(s) and reconstruction of the condyle ramus unit(s) (CRUs) using costochondral graft(s) (CCGs). (2) Those with mandibular ankylosis complicated by facial bone deformities, either asymmetric or bird face. The treatment consists of release of the ankylosis, reconstruction of the CRUs, and correction of jaw deformities--all performed simultaneously. Respiratory embarrassment was an important presenting symptom in the second group, all of whom complained of night snoring, eight of whom had obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). In this latter group, respiratory obstruction improved dramatically after surgical intervention. The degree of mouth opening, monitored as the interincisal distance (IID) improved from a range of 0-12 mm to over 30 mm in 62% of patients and to 20-30 mm in 29% of patients. However, reankylosis was still around 8% and was attributed to lack of patient compliance in 75% and to iatrogenic factors in 25% of patients. CCGs resorption, whether partial or complete, occurred in 27% of patients, resulting in retarded growth, relapse of deformities and night snoring.  (+info)

A recessive mutation leading to vertebral ankylosis in zebrafish is associated with amino acid alterations in the homologue of the human membrane-associated guanylate kinase DLG3. (4/85)

We describe the characterization of the zebrafish homologue of the human gene DLG3. The zebrafish dlg3 gene encodes a membrane-associated guanylate kinase containing a single PDZ domain. This gene was cloned using a gene-trap construct inserted in the gene's first intron. The insertion co-segregates with a viable mutation called humpback (hmp), which leads to formation of ankylotic vertebrae in adult fishes. Insertion and mutation have both been mapped to chromosome 12, in a segment which is syntenic with region p12 to q12 of human chromosome 17. The hmp mutant phenotype, however, appears to be due to two point mutations in the guanylate kinase domain rather than to the transgene insertion itself. The results of this study are discussed in the light of the possible function of the guanylate kinase domain.  (+info)

Evidence for digenic inheritance in some cases of Antley-Bixler syndrome? (5/85)

The Antley-Bixler syndrome has been thought to be caused by an autosomal recessive gene. However, patients with this phenotype have been reported with a new dominant mutation at the FGFR2 locus as well as in the offspring of mothers taking the antifungal agent fluconazole during early pregnancy. In addition to the craniosynostosis and joint ankylosis which are the clinical hallmarks of the condition, many patients, especially females, have genital abnormalities. We now report abnormalities of steroid biogenesis in seven of 16 patients with an Antley-Bixler phenotype. Additionally, we identify FGFR2 mutations in seven of these 16 patients, including one patient with abnormal steroidogenesis. These findings, suggesting that some cases of Antley-Bixler syndrome are the outcome of two distinct genetic events, allow a hypothesis to be formulated under which we may explain all the differing and seemingly contradictory circumstances in which the Antley-Bixler phenotype has been recognised.  (+info)

Persistence of deciduous molars in subjects with agenesis of the second premolars. (6/85)

The purpose of the present study was to investigate persistent primary second molars in a group of young people in their late twenties with agenesis of one or two second premolars. In 1982-83 it was decided, in connection with the orthodontic evaluation of 25 patients, to allow 35 primary molars (one or two in each patient) to remain in situ. All patients had mixed dentitions and agenesis of one or two premolars. The primary teeth were generally in good condition, although root resorption and infra-occlusion (compensated by occlusal composite onlays) occurred. In 1997, 18 of the 25 patients with a total of 26 retained primary molars were reexamined, comprising a clinical examination for exfoliation, extraction, loosening, and ankylosis, and a radiographic examination for root resorption, tooth morphology (crown and root), and alveolar bone contour. The examination showed that the degree of root resorption was unaltered in 20 of the 26 primary molars. In the permanent dentitions, where these primary molars persisted, there were no morphological deviations. Three of the six remaining primary molars had been extracted and three showed extensive resorption. In three of the 26 primary molars the infra-occlusion had worsened. The present study shows that persistence of primary second molars in subjects with agenesis of one or two premolars, and normal morphology of the permanent dentition can be an acceptable, semi-permanent solution for the patient. Whether this could also be an acceptable long-term solution will be shown by follow-up studies.  (+info)

Hay-Wells syndrome is caused by heterozygous missense mutations in the SAM domain of p63. (7/85)

Hay-Wells syndrome, also known as ankyloblepharon-ectodermal dysplasia-clefting (AEC) syndrome (OMIM 106260), is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by congenital ectodermal dysplasia, including alopecia, scalp infections, dystrophic nails, hypodontia, ankyloblepharon and cleft lip and/or cleft palate. This constellation of clinical signs is unique, but some overlap can be recognized with other ectodermal dysplasia syndromes, for example ectrodactyly--ectodermal dysplasia--cleft lip/palate (EEC; OMIM 604292), limb--mammary syndrome (LMS; OMIM 603543), acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome (ADULT; OMIM 103285) and recessive cleft lip/palate--ectodermal dysplasia (CLPED1; OMIM 225060). We have recently demonstrated that heterozygous mutations in the p63 gene are the major cause of EEC syndrome. Linkage studies suggest that the related LMS and ADULT syndromes are also caused by mutations in the p63 gene. Thus, it appears that p63 gene mutations have highly pleiotropic effects. We have analysed p63 in AEC syndrome patients and identified missense mutations in eight families. All mutations give rise to amino acid substitutions in the sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain, and are predicted to affect protein--protein interactions. In contrast, the vast majority of the mutations found in EEC syndrome are amino acid substitutions in the DNA-binding domain. Thus, a clear genotype--phenotype correlation can be recognized for EEC and AEC syndromes.  (+info)

The management of local complications of total hip replacement by the McKee-Farrar technique. (8/85)

One thousand and forty-two McKee-Farrar prostheses of the present design inserted in Norwich from January 1965 to December 1972 have been reviewed retrospectively to determine the incidence of complications needing revision. Of prostheses implanted for more than two years, 6-6 per cent needed revision for loosening (cup 3-5 per cent; stem 2-2 per cent; both components 0-9 per cent). Of the total number, 2-3 per cent became infected and 1-9 per cent dislocated. Most dislocations needed only a single closed reduction but 0-8 per cent were revised. The outcome of revision operations was also assessed. Of revisions for loosening, 40 per cent needed no further operation but 23 per cent required excision; pelvic fracture or bone destruction around the components made success unlikely. Revisions for dislocation were disappointing. Of all revisions 17 per cent became infected. Excision arthroplasty is better than a series of failed revisions in an elderly patient.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Heterotopic ossification of the elbow treated with surgical resection. T2 - Risk factors, bony ankylosis, and complications. AU - Salazar, Dane. AU - Golz, Andrew. AU - Israel, Heidi. AU - Marra, Guido. PY - 2014/1/1. Y1 - 2014/1/1. N2 - Background: Heterotopic ossification is the most common extrinsic cause of elbow contracture and may lead to clinically important stiffness, and rarely, complete bony ankylosis. Surgery sometimes is performed to treat this problem, and published reports differ regarding the factors that are associated with success or failure after this operation and whether the procedure is effective for patients with elbow ankylosis. Questions/purposes: We wished (1) to identify potential patient characteristics and modifiable risk factors that are associated with improvements in ROM after surgery for heterotopic ossification of the elbow; (2) to compare ROM gains between patients with complete ankylosis and partially restricted ROM; and (3) to characterize the ...

Approaches providing the positioning of human amniotic membrane (HAM) within the intra-articular space of arthritic TMJs have never been investigated. This contrasts with the increasing amount of evidence suggesting the potential positive effects of HAM on a number of surgical conditions, even included the interpositional arthroplasty for TMJ ankylosis. Thus, the possible usefulness of HAM to restore joint functions in severely damaged TMJs could be hypothesized. Based on these premises, the clinical research question Is human amniotic membrane positioning effective to reduce symptoms and restore jaw function in patients with severe inflammatory-degenerative disorders of the temporomandibular joint? has been addressed by performing a systematic review of the literature ...
Intra-articular ankylosis (shown above) occurs within the joint and most commonly occurs at the interphalangeal joints. Intra-articular ankylosis results in serious functional and cosmetic problems and is not as easily treated as the extra-articular type.

It has been reported that patients who had a previous arthrodesis for ankylosis had a poorer outcome post total hip replacement.3,7 Some studies suggested a higher failure rate in younger patients and patients with trauma to the hip.3. Clinical evaluation should be thorough with special attention paid to leg length discrepancy, deformities, range of motion and abductor function. Evaluation of the abductor function is very important, specifically in those patients whose hips fused before puberty. This is associated with a higher rate of dislocation.1,6 Pre-operative X-ray templating should be used in order to plan surgery. A CT scan can also be used in this regard.4. The positioning of the patient on the operating table and cup positioning can be very difficult and it is important to recognise this when planning the surgery. Different surgical approaches (anterolateral, posterolateral, lateral, ± trochanteric osteotomy) have been used in this type of surgery and are ...

We evaluated characteristics of patients with AS who had radiographic spinal changes. There were no radiographic spinal changes in 53% of the total group; however, in the subgroup with disease duration longer than 30 years, only 23% remained without spinal changes. This suggests that a large majority of patients under care of a rheumatologist have spinal involvement that will eventually lead to changes visible on conventional radiographs. The likelihood of spinal ankylosis was also higher in men, in those with symptom onset at an earlier age, and in patients who had a history of hip involvement. There was no association of HLAB27 or extraspinal articular disease or extraarticular manifestations with spinal ankylosis.. While it does not seem surprising that disease duration is associated with radiographic changes, there are few prospective longterm studies with data that quantify this observation.

Ageing male DBA/1 mice from different litters were caged together at the age of 8-10 weeks and studied for prospective signs of arthritis. Inflammation-associated gene expression was examined using RNA isolated from affected and healthy paws, as well as draining lymph nodes. DBA/1 mice were treated daily by injection of dexamethasone (0.5 µg/g body weight). Severity of disease was assessed by histomorphology and by positron emission tomography (PET) using 18-deoxyfluoroglucose as a tracer. Bone loss in dexamethasone-treated or control mice was determined by in vivo dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. Chemokine expression was studied in vitro in mesenchymal cell types (primary synovial fibroblasts, periosteal and bone marrow stromal cells) by quantitative real-time PCR in the presence or absence of BMP2 and/or dexamethasone. C2C12 cells stably transfected with a BMP-reporter construct were used for cell stretch experiments in a dedicated bioreactor.. ...

Background: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis in early childhood can lead to disturbances in growth, facial asymmetry and difficulties in eating as well as in breathing. The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of auricular cartilage as an interpositional material after gap arthroplasty in pediatric patients with temporomandibular joint ankylosis in maintaining the achieved postoperative mouth opening.. Material and Methods: This prospective study was conducted at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department of King Edward Medical University, Lahore, from 1st January 2019 to 30th November 2019. Thirty patients, aged 5 to 15 years with clinical and radiological diagnosis of TMJ ankylosis were included in the study. TMJ ankylotic mass was removed, the gap was created and interposition of auricular cartilage graft was done in these patients. Mouth opening was measured as a distance between the incisal edges of mandibular central incisors to maxillary central incisors ...
A 31 years-old, masculine sex, patient was referred from a low complexity health center to a medium complexity hospital, with a diagnose of Repeated third-molar pericoronitis and indication to perform the dental extraction of the affected tooth. The patient suffers Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and he was medicated with Infliximab to control the pain inflicted by the disease. As a result of the Juvenile idiopathic arthritis the patient presents, bilateral TMJ ankylosis, limited jaw opening (8 mm apperture), vertebral fusion, difficult airway and ankylosis of other joint, other pathologies was unremarkable. This patient was evaluated by a multidisciplinary team and was decided to carry out the procedure that was initially indicated on a fast way, because previous episodes of pericoronitis were severe, with general compromise. The first obstacle was the airway and the incapacity to do a regular intubation, second, the limitation of mandibular movements, third, the medication that the patient ...
Mesial protraction of mandibular posterior teeth requires increased anchorage to avoid undesired tooth movements. Orthodontic mini-implants have become a popular and successful way to increase skeletal anchorage in such cases. However, mini-implants may cause injury to adjacent teeth or anatomical structures and may lead to tissue inflammation. Induced ankylosed primary teeth have been used in the past as abutments for the protraction of the maxilla in cases of maxillary retrognathism. However, this technique has not been described in the literature for the protraction of mandibular molars. The aim of this paper is to present, through a case report, an alternative to mini-implant devices to maximize anchorage in the mandible by inducing ankylosis on a primary molar. A 13-year-old female with class II right malocclusion, deep bite, and congenitally missing right second premolars was referred for orthodontic treatment. Treatment plan involved removal of the primary teeth and mesial protraction of the
This book deals with wide coverage of different pathological conditions involving the maxillofacial region, along with the adjoining head and neck region. Emphasis has been laid on applied aspects and explanation of basics, for making it easier for the reader to understand. It is not only the compilation of the facts but the authors have given practical tips and their own inputs based on the clinical experiences. Certain topics like incisions in maxillofacial surgery, suturing, airway care, management of facial burns, comprehensive left lip and palate care, tips for post graduate residents, etc. are included. The Indian circumstances have been kept in mind while describing the various clinical conditions as the scenario is different from the western world. There is rich referencing and every effort is made to support all the inclusions by evidences. The description of oral pre-cancer and cancer and its management are exhaustive. The temporomandibular joint ankylosis and oral submucous fibrosis are
We tested the hypothesis that MRI structural lesions in the SIJ, especially fat metaplasia, predict new bone formation on spinal radiographs from patients with axial SpA in a prospective cohort. This was aimed at addressing a key preliminary requirement in the validation of a surrogate MRI biomarker for radiographic progression in the spine of patients with SpA. Our multivariate data demonstrates that the presence of definite ankylosis in the SIJ at baseline (as defined by an SSS score of ≥2 by both readers), and its extent, is significantly associated with new bone formation on spinal radiography on follow-up. The degree of subchondral fat metaplasia in the SIJ is also independently associated with radiographic progression in the spine. The lack of any new bone formation in the spine despite prolonged symptom duration is associated with the absence of SIJ ankylosis and backfill. These data therefore support the hypothesis that structural lesions in the SIJ, specifically ankylosis and ...
SOURCE: Steinberg CL, et al. (1955). Comparison of rheumatoid (ankylosing) spondylitis and crippling fluorosis. Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases 14: 378-384.. During our anthropological studies we were puzzled by the high incidence of a peculiar type of arthritis and joint ankylosis that seemed to afflict a majority of the adult inhabitants of a number of small Miao villages in the neighbourhood. In fact, in many of the older people the disease had advanced to such an extent that they appeared to be set in semi-sitting positions, with almost complete loss of movement in the limbs… Later a copy of Roholms mongraph on fluorine intoxication came to hand and we were struck by the similarity in appearance between the photographs of the Danish workers in cryolite and the crippled Miao peasants in China… It is quite possible that endemic centres [of skeletal fluorosis] exist but that the cause of the disabling spondylitis or other joint affections has not been determined, and a diagnosis of ...
14. There are periods associated with those remissions and relapses. Pathophysiology of them Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis goes through four stages. The first noticeable stage is perhaps inflammation of the joint membrane (synovitis), causing blockage and oedema. The next phase is the formation whereas pannus. A layer of inflammatory tissue forms in the joint capsule. Fibroblasts, leucocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells and many other materials multiply from the synovial membrane a lot of pannus tissue which invades with cartilage and slowly replace it with tough fibrous cells. The disease progresses a reality otherwise known as fibrous ankylosis. This involves the conversion of the articular cartilage of the full joint into fibrous body parts thereby inhibiting motion of that joint. The final stage is perhaps bony ankylosis. In the following stage, the bones of the joint fuse together and thus making mobility impossible. .. ...
In the present study, we found that AS-BMSCs showed normal proliferation, cell viability, surface markers and multiple differentiations characteristics, but significantly reduced immunomodulation potential; also, the frequencies of Treg and Fox-P3+ cells in AS-PBMCs decreased, but CCR4+CCR6+ Th cells increased. Moreover, the AS-BMSCs induced the ratio of CCR4+CCR6+ Th/Treg cell imbalance when co-cultured with PBMCs. Additionally, no differences were found between HD1 and HD2. Impressively, the immunomodulation potential of BMSCs has negative correlation with the ratios of CCR4+CCR6+ Th to Treg cells in peripheral blood.. Characteristic symptoms of AS are spinal stiffness, ankylosis and syndesmophytes [1], which are explained by spinal inflammation, structural damage, or both [40]. As the ankylosis of the spine or even spinal stiffness was probably initiated by the heterotopic ossification of osteoblasts, and most of these osteoblasts derived from BMSCs [41, 42], and, simultaneously, there were ...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of axial inflammation. Over time, some patients develop spinal ankylosis and permanent disability; however, current treatment strategies cannot arrest syndesmophyte formation completely. Here, we used mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from AS patients (AS MSCs) within the enthesis involved in spinal ankylosis to delineate that the HLA-B27-mediated spliced X-box-binding protein 1 (sXBP1)/retinoic acid receptor-β (RARB)/tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNAP) axis accelerated the mineralization of AS MSCs, which was independent of Runt-related transcription factor 2 (Runx2). An animal model mimicking AS pathological bony appositions was established by implantation of AS MSCs into the lumbar spine of NOD-SCID mice. We found that TNAP inhibitors, including levamisole and pamidronate, inhibited AS MSC mineralization in vitro and blocked bony appositions in vivo. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the serum bone-specific TNAP (BAP) level was a potential ...
Radiography is an unreliable and insensitive tool for the assessment of structural lesions in the sacroiliac joints (SIJ). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detects a wider spectrum of structural lesions but has undergone minimal validation in prospective studies. The Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada (SPARCC) MRI Sacroiliac Joint (SIJ) Structural Score (SSS) assesses a spectrum of structural lesions (erosion, fat metaplasia, backfill, ankylosis) and its potential to discriminate between therapies requires evaluation. The SSS score assesses five consecutive coronal slices through the cartilaginous portion of the joint on T1-weighted sequences starting from the transitional slice between cartilaginous and ligamentous portions of the joint. Lesions are scored dichotomously (present/absent) in SIJ quadrants (fat metaplasia, erosion) or halves (backfill, ankylosis). Two readers independently scored 147 pairs (baseline, 2 years) of scans from a prospective cohort of patients with SpA who
The use of guided tissue regeneration procedures has intensified the need to determine the types and quantity of tissues formed in healing. Regeneration is differentiated from new attachment in one basic, but very important manner: alveolar bone formation with new inserted periodontal fibers in new cementum is a prerequisite for the regeneration of periodontium (4-6). Areas of new cementum deposition without adjacent bone, and vice-versa, and areas of ankylosis, for example, do not satisfy the criteria for regeneration (7). Furthermore, recent advances in the understanding of functions and mechanisms of action of growth factors to regulate the healing process have provided evidence that these proteins may serve as therapeutic agents to enhance the healing of periodontal wounds (8-11). Sigurdsson et al. (12) found a significant enhancement in periodontal regeneration using the rhBMP-2 in dog models. They described limited root resorption and ankylosis generally limited immediately apical to the ...
There have been marked improvements in treatment options but none have yet been shown to induce remission. The past decade has seen major advances in the diagnosis and management of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and in research into its pathogenesis. It remains the case that no current treatments have been shown to lead to disease remissions or to halt the progression of the bony ankylosis that causes the major morbidity associated with this condition. Nonetheless, improved diagnostic methods and management have led to major benefits for patients, with marked improvements in quality of life with reduced treatment-associated side effects.. ...

If rheumatoid arthritis is ever to be controlled completely and permanently, it would seem reasonable to suppose that such a result would have to be achieved during the comparatively early stages of the disease; that is, before marked crippling caused by joint destruction, ankylosis and deformity has taken place. In the early months of rheumatoid arthritis, apparently up to one year, the disease is nearly always completely reversible. It may be completely reversible even later if joint destruction has not occurred. This characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis has been stressed recently by Hench in his Heberden Oration.1. Much has been written ...
Radiographs were taken of each hand and foot at Baseline, Weeks 24, 52 and104 and were evaluated using the Genant modified method according to Sharp. Erosion Score: A total of 14 locations in each hand and wrist and 6 joints in the foot were evaluated for erosion using an 8-point scale where 0=Normal to 3.5=very severe erosion. Joint Narrowing Score: A total of 13 locations in each hand and wrist and 6 joints in the foot were evaluated for joint narrowing score using a 9-point scale where 0=Normal to 4.0=definite ankylosis (stiffness or fixation of a joint). The maximum total erosion score in the hands is 98 and in the feet 42. The maximum scores for joint space narrowing (JSN) in the hands was104 and in the feet 48. The total score was the sum of scores for erosions and JSN. The maximum total modified GSS was 292. A lower number change from Baseline was better. Analysis of covariance model, with Baseline DAS28 as a covariate and treatment and site as fixed factors ...
Currently, the gold standard for assessing BMD is posteroanterior (PA) dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) at the spine and hip, as recommended by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry (ISCD)32. However, the hallmark of axSpA is sacroiliitis and spinal damage due to both bony erosion and abnormal bone formation. This can lead to the development of syndesmophytes, perivertebral bone formation, ankylosis of the zygapophyseal joints, and pathologic new bone formation in the ligamentous apparatus. In severe cases, complete fusion of the spine can occur. This extensive osteoproliferation can falsely raise the BMD when PA (conventional) DEXA is used, giving an illusion of reassuringly normal BMD, even in cases where osteoporosis may be present. A study of 73 patients with AS using PA DEXA found that the frequency of low BMD in patients with mild disease was 68.4% in the lumbar spine, but the prevalence dropped to 54.3% in advanced cases8. This contrasted with the hip, where the ...
ABSTRACT. The sacrifice of motion to achieve spinal stability and pain relief has been practised since the early 20th century by means of iatrogenically induced ankylosis or fusion. Initially this was practised in the management of Potts disease and indications have been expanded over the years to include trauma, deformity and degenerative conditions. In the last few decades there has been a proliferation of options as regards surgical technique and instrumentation. This often overwhelms the surgeon where more is perceived to be better, yet there is limited evidence that this is in fact so.. ...

Methods A random 80% sample of the ASSERT database was used for this analysis. ASSERT was a 24-week (wk) RCT comparing infliximab monotherapy and placebo in patients with active AS, with an open extension until 102wks with all patients on infliximab. Spinal MRIs (T1-weighted and STIR images) at baseline, 24wks and 102wks were assessed by 2 readers independently who scored each VE for the presence or absence of VEI and VEFD. Spinal X-rays (baseline and 102wks) were scored by 2 different readers independently using the mSASSS. Data were analysed at the VE level in the 24 VEs assessed by the mSASSS (anterior VEs of the cervical and lumbar spine), using a multi-level approach to adjust for within-patient correlation and MRI reader (GEE for binomial outcomes). Particular emphasis was on a sequence analysis, which aimed at the specific sequence VEI→VEFD→SYN. The following variables were considered potential covariates and adjusted for when appropriate: treatment, gender, presence of SYN/ankylosis ...

Bony ankylosis of elbow is challenging and difficult problem to treat. The options are excision arthroplasty and total elbow replacement. We report our midterm results on nine patients, who underwent inverted V osteotomy excision arthroplasty in our hospital with good functional results. Our case series includes 9 patients (seven males and two females) with the mean age of 34 years (13-56 years). Five patients had trauma, two had pyogenic arthritis, one had tuberculous arthritis, and one had pyogenic arthritis following surgical fixation. The average duration of follow up is 65 months (45 months-80 months). The mean Mayos elbow performance score (MEPS) preoperatively was 48 (35-70). The MEPS at final follow up was 80 (60-95). With no movement at elbow and fixed in various degrees of either flexion or extension preoperatively, the mean preoperative position of elbow was 64°(30°to 100°). The mean post operative range of motion at final follow up was 27°of extension (20-500), 116°of flexion (1100

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Osseous abnormalities associated with collateral ligament (CL) injury of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint have been documented using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) but there is currently limited information about the frequency of osseous pathology associated with CL injury. OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency of occurrence of osseous abnormality coexistent with CL injury of the DIP joint and describe the distribution and character of osseous lesions; and to establish if there was an association between osseous abnormality and increased radiopharmaceutical uptake (IRU). HYPOTHESES: There would be a higher incidence of osseous abnormality at the insertion of an injured CL than at the origin; and a relationship between the presence of osseous abnormality and duration of lameness. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Magnetic resonance images of 313 feet of 289 horses with foot pain and a definitive diagnosis of collateral desmopathy of the DIP joint were analysed retrospectively

OBJECTIVES: In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the talonavicular joint is commonly involved and midfoot collapse can lead to progressive flattening of the arch. Despite a general awareness of the important structural role of the talonavicular joint in rheumatoid foot disease, details of its destructive pattern has not been elucidated. METHODS: We cross-sectionally investigated 176 RA patients (342 feet) and classified their feet into the following five groups according to radiographic findings: arthritis; (RA changes with normal navicular shape), Müller-Weiss Disease (MWD); (collapse of the lateral aspect of the tarsal navicular), flat; (flattened navicular), ankylosis; (ankylosis of the talonavicular joint), and normal ...
Course Description:. Upper central incisor impaction has functional, esthetic and psychologic implications. Causes of the impaction can be divided in obstructive and traumatic. Among the first ones are: supernumerary teeth, odontomas and mesiodens. Among the second group are facial trauma received in the primary or early mixed dentition. In close relation as well with root dilaceration. Other less common reasons for impaction include: crowding, endocrine alterations, bone diseases, genetic conditions, extraction or ankylosis of primary incisors. The impacted upper central incisor can be classified depending on: mesio-distal position, occluso-gingival position, midline angulation, degree of root formation. If early intervention is not enough. There is the need for surgical exposure and orthodontic traction. Among possible treatment complications are: esthetic gingival sequelae, ankylosis and root resorption. Learning Objectives:. ...

Arthrodesis Also known as artificial ankylosis or syndesis, is the artificial induction of joint ossification between two bones via surgery. This is done to relieve intractable pain in a joint which cannot be managed by pain medication, splints, or other normally-indicated treatments. The typical causes of such pain are fractures which disrupt the joint, and arthritis. It is most commonly performed on joints in the spine, hand, ankle, and foot. Historically, knee and hip arthrodeses were also p…

Radiographic progression was defined as change from Baseline in the modified Total Sharp Score (mTSS) of ≤ 0.5 units). The mTSS is a measure of change in joint health: digitized images of radiographs of hands and feet obtained at Screening and Month 12 were scored in a blinded manner. Joints were scored for erosions on a scale from 0 (no damage) to 5 (complete collapse) and joint space narrowing on a scale from 0 (no damage) to 4 (ankylosis or complete dislocation). Erosion scores and narrowing scores were added to obtain the mTSS (range = 0 [normal] to 398 [maximal disease]). An increase in mTSS from Baseline represents disease progression and/or joint worsening, no change represents halting of disease progression, and a decrease represents improvement ...
