Filtration leukocytapheresis therapy in rheumatoid arthritis: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (1/722)OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy and safety of filtration leukocytapheresis (LCP) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Twenty-five patients with drug-resistant RA were randomly assigned to undergo filtration LCP and 7 to undergo sham apheresis (control group) in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Three apheresis procedures were performed, with 1-week intervals between procedures. The efficacy of filtration LCP was evaluated according to the American College of Rheumatology definition of improvement in RA. Medications for each patient were unchanged for at least 6 months prior to enrollment and throughout the study. RESULTS: Tender joint counts, swollen joint counts, patient assessment of pain and global severity, physician assessment of global severity, and Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index were significantly improved in the LCP group compared with the control group (P < 0.05 for patient assessment of pain; P < 0.01 for all others). Seventy-nine percent of the patients in the LCP group exhibited significant overall improvement, while none of the patients in the control group were improved (P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The results indicate that filtration LCP is an effective and well-tolerated treatment for patients with drug-resistant RA. (+info)
An acutely painful elbow as a first presentation of von Willebrand's disease. (2/722)A 26 year old woman presented to the accident and emergency department with a painful right elbow. There had been no history of trauma. Clinical examination suggested an effusion, which was confirmed on radiological examination. Her elbow was aspirated and revealed a haemarthrosis. Subsequent investigations revealed a diagnosis of von Willebrand's disease (vWD). A spontaneously occurring effusion of the elbow may be due to a haemarthrosis. Aspiration of blood in the absence of trauma may lead to a diagnosis of an occult coagulopathy in addition to relieving pain. The diagnosis and treatment of vWD is discussed. (+info)
Prevalence of joint pain is higher among women in rural Japan than urban Japanese-American women in Hawaii. (3/722)OBJECTIVE: Environmental factors such as farming contribute to the frequency of joint symptoms. The purpose of this study is to explore the possible role of environment (lifestyle), by comparing the prevalence of joint pain between Japanese in a rural farming district in Japan and in urban Hawaii. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Current or previous pain at specific joints was surveyed among 222 women in rural Japan and 638 Japanese women in urban Hawaii aged 60-79. The age adjusted prevalence was compared using logistic regression. RESULTS: The prevalence of pain at one or more joints was approximately 70% in Japan and 50% in Hawaii. The prevalence of knee pain in Japan ranged from 36% at ages 60-69 years to 53% at 70-79 years (mean 41%), whereas knee pain affected only 20% of women in Hawaii in both age groups. The odds ratio (and 95% CI) was 3.2 (2.1, 4.8) for knee pain, and 4.0 (2.2, 7.4) for mid-back pain in Japan, compared with Hawaii. Pain was also significantly more common in Japan at the shoulder, elbow, and ankle, but not at other joints. Women in Japan were shorter and weighed less than in Hawaii. Adjustment for body mass index increased the odds ratios to 4.4 (2.9, 6.8) for knee, and 4.5 (2.4, 8.5) for mid-back pain. CONCLUSION: Although the potential influence of cultural factors or other sources of bias cannot be ruled out, the large differences in the prevalence of pain at specific joints suggest that environmental factors are probably responsible, because both populations are of similar genetic stock.

Health benefits of joint replacement surgery for patients with osteoarthritis: prospective evaluation using independent assessments in Scotland. (4/722)STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine extent of change in psychological, functional, and social health after knee and hip joint replacement surgery using independent assessments. DESIGN: Patients were recruited before surgery and interviewed preoperatively, three months after surgery, and nine months after surgery. Interviews were conducted in the patients' own homes. SETTING: Two orthopaedic surgery units in Scotland. PARTICIPANTS: A consecutive sample of 107 patients with osteoarthritis having primary replacement of the knee or hip. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Assessments of depression, anxiety, pain, functional activity, informal care, and formal service utilisation were made at three time points. MAIN RESULTS: Anxiety and pain were significantly reduced and functional activity levels significantly increased after surgery. While gains in anxiety and pain reduction occurred between the preoperative and three month assessments, gains in activity were made between the three month and nine month assessments. Although pain was reduced and activity increased, levels of depression were unchanged after surgery. Patients reported need for assistance with fewer activities after surgery, but increases in the use of formal services and increases in the number of hours per week of informal support received were observed at both three month and nine month follow up. CONCLUSIONS: The main benefit of joint replacement surgery is pain relief. Gains in functional activity, particularly mobility and leisure activities are made by many patients. Paradoxically, surgery for osteoarthritis seems to act as a "gateway" to increases in formal and informal community support, which are maintained into the longer term. (+info)
Knee pain and the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. (5/722)Pain over the front of the knee is common after surgery or trauma but often a definite diagnosis is difficult to make. Over the past year we have seen five cases in which the pain could be ascribed to damage to a branch of the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. Two were subsequent to trauma and three to surgical procedures. In all five cases surgical exploration gave symptomatic relief. Eight cadaveric knees were prosected to explore further the anatomy of this nerve in relation to the injuries. Injury to one of these branches should be considered in cases of persistent anterior, anteromedial or anterolateral knee pain or neurological symptoms following surgery or trauma. (+info)
The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (6/722)OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers. (+info)
Is diagnostic arthroscopy of the hip worthwhile? A prospective review of 328 adults investigated for hip pain. (7/722)We describe a prospective study of 328 patients undergoing arthroscopy of the hip. Arthrography, CT or MRI was performed when clinically indicated. A preoperative diagnosis was reached in 174 patients (53%), while the remaining 154 were diagnosed as having 'idiopathic hip pain'. In seven patients, access to the hip was inadequate. Arthroscopy altered the diagnosis in 176 hips (53%). The new primary diagnoses were osteoarthritis (75 patients), osteochondral defects (34), torn labra (23), synovitis (11) and loose bodies (9). In 172 hips (52%) an operative procedure was undertaken. In the remaining 84 patients (26%), arthroscopy neither changed the diagnosis nor provided surgical treatment. Arthroscopy of the hip is considered to be of value in assessing and treating the adult patient with pain in the hip of uncertain cause. (+info)
O'nyong-nyong fever in south-central Uganda, 1996-1997: clinical features and validation of a clinical case definition for surveillance purposes. (8/722)O'nyong-nyong (ONN) fever, caused by infection with a mosquito-borne central African alphavirus, is an acute, nonfatal illness characterized by polyarthralgia. During 1996-1997, south-central Uganda experienced the second ONN fever epidemic ever recognized. Among 391 persons interviewed and sampled, 40 cases of confirmed and 21 of presumptive, well-characterized acute, recent, or previous ONN fever were identified through active case-finding efforts or during a household serosurvey and by the application of clinical and laboratory criteria. Among confirmed cases, the knees and ankles were the joints most commonly affected. The median duration of arthralgia was 6 days (range, 2-21 days) and of immobilization was 4 days (range, 1-14 days). In the majority, generalized skin rash was reported, and nearly half had lymphadenopathy, mainly of the cervical region. Viremia was documented in 16 cases, primarily during the first 3 days of illness, and in some of these, body temperature was normal. During this epidemic, the combination of fever, arthralgia, and lymphadenopathy had a specificity of 83% and a sensitivity of 61% in the identification of cases of ONN fever and thus could be useful for surveillance purposes.

Results. Of 301 patients with Crohn disease (median age 14.2 yrs), 37 (12.3%) had arthritis while 44 (14.6%) had arthralgia at diagnosis. Arthritis and arthralgia were more common in women (p = 0.028). Patients with arthritis and arthralgia demonstrated lower rates of perianal disease (2.7% and 4.5% vs 16.9%, p = 0.013), whereas patients with arthritis were more likely to be treated with biologic therapy (HR 2.05, 95% CI 1.27-3.33, p = 0.009). Of 129 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC; median age 13.7 yrs), 3 (2.3%) had arthritis and 16 (12.4%) had arthralgia at diagnosis. Patients with arthralgia were treated more often with corticosteroids (p = 0.03) or immunomodulator therapies (p = 0.003) compared with those without joint involvement. The likelihood to undergo colectomy was significantly higher in patients with arthralgia (HR 2.9, 95% CI 1.1-7.4, p = 0.04). During followup (median 9.0 yrs), 13 patients developed arthritis (3.3%).

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS), also known as trochanteric bursitis, is inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, a part of the hip. This bursa is at the top, outer side of the femur, between the insertion of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles into the greater trochanter of the femur and the femoral shaft. It has the function, in common with other bursae, of working as a shock absorber and as a lubricant for the movement of the muscles adjacent to it. Occasionally, this bursa can become inflamed and clinically painful and tender. This condition can be a manifestation of an injury (often resulting from a twisting motion or from overuse), but sometimes arises for no obviously definable cause. The symptoms are pain in the hip region on walking, and tenderness over the upper part of the femur, which may result in the inability to lie in comfort on the affected side. More often the lateral hip pain is caused by disease of the gluteal tendons that ...
A Comparative Study between Hyaluronic Acid and Corticosteroids for the Treatment of the Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
Objective: To date, there are no studies addressing the efficacy of hyaluronic acid (HA) injections at the trochanteric bursa in patients with greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS). The objective of the study was to compare the efficacy and safety of HA to corticosteroid injections for the treatment of the GTPS. Methods: This prospective, randomized, two-arm trial involved 47 patients with unilateral or bilateral GTPS. Patients received an intra-bursal injection of 40 mg triamcinolone acetonide plus 1mL lidocaine, or of 60 mg HA. Patients completed visual analog scales (VAS) and Likert scales to evaluate interference of pain with daily activity, recovery from pain, and treatment satisfaction. A non-inferiority analysis was also performed. Results: Mean VAS score for pain significantly decreased comparing baseline with 1, 3 and 6 months in both treatment groups. VAS score for pain on palpation was also significantly lower than baseline in both arms. No significant differences were found between

Clinical History: 70 year-old female with chronic left hip pain...What is your diagnosis?. Diagnosis: Gluteus minimus tear of the left hip with associated trochanteric bursitis.. Discussion: Lateral hip pain is frequently a challenging diagnostic and therapeutic problem. In the past, the presentation of chronic lateral hip pain with tenderness over the greater trochanter was attributed to trochanteric bursitis. This symptom complex, called greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS), can mimic other serious causes of hip pain...Abductor tendon (gluteus minimus and gluteus medius) tears are becoming increasingly recognized as a frequent cause of pain at the hip.

In a large majority of patients, trochanteric bursitis or distension will accompany an abductor tendon tear. The frequent coexistence of trochanteric bursitis and abductor tendinopathy has led some authors to suggest that ...

Unexplained joint pains (arthralgias) were one of the main symptoms that I dealt with prior to my celiac diagnosis. Throughout my twenties I had pain and stiffness in my fingers, knees and ankles that would come and go with no apparent explanation. I ran track for part of high school and continued to run for fitness during college, but shortly after graduating had to stop running for a long time due to my joint issues. I was evaluated over and over again for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme Disease, etc. but there were never any answers for why I had developed the pains. So I learned to live with them and I stopped running. Fortunately, since going GF in 2010 my arthralgias have almost entirely disappeared, and I was able to resume running again.. Based on previous research, up to 25% of people with celiac disease may experience joint pains. In just the last few months there have been a few interesting studies published about the relationship between celiac disease and joint issues.. A group of ...

Expression of adiponectin in the subchondral bone of lumbar facet joints with different degrees of degeneration | BMC...
As a part of the three-column structure of vertebrae, facet joints play a key role in maintaining the stability of spinal motion, particularly in the lumbar area . Therefore, most doctors are concerned with the biomechanical and mechanical factors affecting lumbar facet joints. However, the pathogenesis of FJOA has not been fully elucidated. Accordingly, in this study, we evaluated the expression of adiponectin in lumbar facet joints. Our results showed that adiponectin expression was significantly downregulated with increasing degeneration of the lumbar facet joint.. Adiponectin is an adipocyte factor specifically secreted from fat cells. Adiponectin is composed of 244 amino acids; the N-terminus contains one secretory signal sequence, and the C-terminus contains a spherical egg white function threshold. Previous studies have shown that adiponectin is involved in glucose homeostasis, insulin sensitivity, and vascular inflammatory diseases [25, 26]. Adiponectin in human peripheral blood ...
