Arthropathy, Neurogenic: Chronic progressive degeneration of the stress-bearing portion of a joint, with bizarre hypertrophic changes at the periphery. It is probably a complication of a variety of neurologic disorders, particularly TABES DORSALIS, involving loss of sensation, which leads to relaxation of supporting structures and chronic instability of the joint.

Midfoot and hindfoot arthrodeses in diabetic Charcot arthropathy. (1/83)

OBJECTIVES: To review the clinical outcome of arthrodesis of the foot in patients with diabetic Charcot arthropathy and to review the pathophysiology, clinical and radiographic features of Charcot arthropathy. DESIGN: A retrospective review and clinical follow-up of a series of patients. SETTING: St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, a tertiary care teaching hospital. PATIENTS: Ten diabetic patients treated between 1996 and 1998 who required an arthrodesis of the midfoot or hindfoot secondary to deformity of diabetic neuropathic joints. INTERVENTIONS: Three midfoot (Lisfranc) and 7 hindfoot arthrodeses with autogenous iliac-crest bone grafting and internal fixation. OUTCOME MEASURES: Patient satisfaction, maintenance of the correction of the deformity and avoidance of amputation. Western Ontario/McMaster University score and midfoot/hindfoot American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society foot ratios. Clinical examination including E-MED pedographic examination. Correction and evidence of bony or fibrous union assessed radiologically. RESULTS: The postoperative correction was maintained, no further skin ulceration occurred and amputation was avoided in 9 of 10 patients. Because this is a salvage procedure and there was often significant concomitant illness, the results of clinical rating systems were poor. Five of 9 patients had clinical and radiographic evidence of a solid bony arthrodesis; 4 had a stable fibrous union. CONCLUSIONS: With careful surgical technique, a reasonable number of feet can be salvaged by an arthrodesis of a diabetic neuropathic joint when nonoperative measures fail. Patient selection is important because there is a significant complication rate.  (+info)

Charcot foot: the diagnostic dilemma. (2/83)

Primary care physicians involved in the management of patients with diabetes are likely to encounter the diagnostic and treatment challenges of pedal neuropathic joint disease, also known as Charcot foot. The acute Charcot foot is characterized by erythema, edema and elevated temperature of the foot that can clinically mimic cellulitis or gout. Plain film radiographic findings can be normal in the acute phase of Charcot foot. A diagnosis of Charcot syndrome should be considered in any neuropathic patient, even those with a minor increase of heat and swelling of the foot or ankle, especially after any injury. Early recognition of Charcot syndrome and immobilization (often with a total contact cast), even in the presence of normal radiographs, can minimize potential foot deformity, ulceration and loss of function. Orthopedic or podiatric foot and ankle specialists should be consulted when the disease process does not respond to treatment.  (+info)

Total knee arthroplasty in neuropathic arthropathy. (3/83)

We describe the results of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) undertaken for severe, neurosyphilitic Charcot arthropathy in ten patients (19 knees). A cemented condylar, constrained prosthesis was implanted in all but two knees. The mean follow-up was 5.2 years (5 to 6). The mean knee score before operation was 36.5 points (30 to 42) which improved to 76 points (58 to 90) after operation as judged by the Hospital for Special Surgery score. At final follow-up three knees (16%) had aseptic loosening which required salvage by an arthrodesis, six (31%) were functioning poorly and ten (53%) were satisfactory. We conclude that although Charcot arthropathy is not an absolute contraindication to total knee replacement, there is a high incidence of serious complications.  (+info)

A practical guide for examining and treating the diabetic foot. (4/83)

Physicians can perform a quick, complete examination of the feet of patients with diabetes to prevent serious complications. The examination should focus on circulation, nerve function, musculoskeletal problems, and the skin. All patients should be urged to wear supportive, comfortable shoes, and to wash, moisturize, and examine their feet every day.  (+info)

Neuroarthropathy. Clinico-radiologic analysis of 115 cases. (7/83)

115 patients (163 joints) with neuroarthropathy (Charcot joint) were observed clinically and radiologically. In Charcot joint of the shoulder, the entire scapula was disintegrated. After debridement and arthrodesis, fragmentation of bone reappeared at both ends of the affected long bone and even on the lateral surface of diaphysis. Fragmentation of the articular surface and the subchondral bone was seen in the non-weight-bearing surface. 32 patients in this series sustained spontaneous fractures without a history of trauma or undue strain. Follow-up for short periods (2 to 6 weeks) showed rapid progressive destruction. These results indicated that neurotrophic theory seems to furnish an explanation for the pathogenesis of the Charcot joint, and that bone resorption should be the primary change while bone hypertrophy and proliferation, the secondary.  (+info)

Synoviolin/Hrd1, an E3 ubiquitin ligase, as a novel pathogenic factor for arthropathy. (8/83)

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the most critical articular diseases with synovial hyperplasia followed by impairment of quality of life. However, the mechanism(s) that regulates synovial cell outgrowth is not fully understood. To clarify its mechanism(s), we carried out immunoscreening by using antirheumatoid synovial cell antibody and identified and cloned "Synoviolin/Hrd1", an E3 ubiquitin ligase. Synoviolin/Hrd1 was highly expressed in the rheumatoid synovium, and mice overexpressing this enzyme developed spontaneous arthropathy. Conversely, synoviolin/hrd1(+/-) mice were resistant to collagen-induced arthritis by enhanced apoptosis of synovial cells. We conclude that Synoviolin/Hrd1 is a novel causative factor for arthropathy by triggering synovial cell outgrowth through its antiapoptotic effects. Our findings provide a new pathogenetic model of RA and suggest that Synoviolin/Hrd1 could be targeted as a therapeutic strategy for RA.  (+info)

The present study compared diabetic patients with chronic Charcot arthropathy of the foot to diabetic patients who did not have the condition. Comparisons of the patients sociodemographic profiles, diabetes characteristics and foot factors were made to predict the independent risk factors of diabetic Charcot arthropathy.. Our results showed that patients with a history of prior diabetic foot problems had the highest propensity for developing diabetic Charcot arthropathy. Other studies have similarly reported that a certain percentage of diabetic patients with Charcot arthropathy had a previous history of foot problems such as ulcer, surgery and/or amputation of the foot complex, along with a loss of protective sensation.(12,13,17). Foot ulcer in diabetic patients with loss of protective sensation commonly occurs at the plantar aspect because of the abnormal high plantar pressure. Delayed management and the absence of adequate pressure offloading of the foot ulcer may further delay wound ...
Neuropathic joints, often called Charcot joints, are caused by loss of sensation in the joints. Read more about Neuropathic Joints (Charcot Joints).
Introduction: The treatment of Charcot neuroarthropathy in the feet of diabetic patients has undergone fundamental changes in the last few years. Formerly, treatment was almost exclusively limited to nonoperative measures; since the late 1990s, however, current practice has shifted to early, stage-appropriate surgical therapy. The objective of this prospective study was to investigate the value of two types of positron emission tomography (PET) in the preoperative evaluation of diabetic patients with Charcot foot deformities. Materials and Methods: Ring 18FFDG (2-fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose) and hybrid PET were compared to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI, ring PET, and hybrid PET imaging were used as part of the preoperative evaluation of 16 patients with type II diabetes mellitus. The diagnosis of Charcot neuropathy of the foot requiring operative treatment had been made on the basis of clinical and radiographic criteria. Results: Of 39 Charcot lesions confirmed at surgery, 37 were detected by ...
AIMS: Charcot Neuroarthropathy (CN) is a disabling complication, culminating in bone destruction and involving joints and articular cartilage with high inflammatory environment. Its real pathogenesis is unknown yet. In autoinflammatory diseases, as rheumatoid arthritis, characterized by inflammation and joints involvement, autoantibodies against post-translationally modified (ox-PTM) collagen type I (CI) and Type II (CII) were detected. Therefore, the aim of our study was to assess the potential involvement of autoimmunity in CN, investigating the presence of autoantibodies ox-PTM-CI and -CII, in subjects with CN. METHODS: In this case-control study, we enrolled 124 subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (47 with CN, 37 with diabetic peripheral neuropathy without CN, and 40 withuncomplicated diabetes), and 32 healthy controls. CI and CII were modified with ribose and other oxidant species and the modifications were evaluated with SDS-PAGE. Binding of sera from the subjects were analyzed with ...
The condition Charcot foot has been known in more than 130 years, and yet there still remains a large effort to find the cause, diagnostic and medical treatment of the condition.. Charcot neuroarthropathy is a progressive disease of bone and joints characterized by often-painless bone and joint destruction in limbs that have lost sensory innervation. The incidence of acute Charcot among diabetic patients is 0,2 % the prevalence is 7,5 %. In the group of patients with neuropathy the prevalence is even higher -29%.. The diagnosis is often made on a clinical basis, particularly in the early stages of the condition. The aim of this study is to find a method that makes the diagnosis primarily on the basis of paraclinical information.. Clinical presentation:. The typical patients have had diabetes in 10 years and have distal symmetrical neuropathy.. The common lesion is unilateral with an acute phase, which may occur either spontaneously or be triggered by a minor trauma. The foot becomes swollen, ...

1966 Eichenholz proposed a group of Charcot joints which is broken down into three distinctive stages. Stage one, or the development stage, shows debris surrounding the joints on xray. Stage one can develop over a period of days to weeks which is radiographic change that occurs in response to unperceived trauma. Stage two is the coalescence stage. In stage two, the bone begins to heal with assimilation of debris and healing of large fracture fragments. Stage three, often called the reconstruction or reconstitution stage, note a reduction in bone turn over and reformation of stable bone structure. Stage 0 has been added in 1999 by Sella and Barrette to include patients who exhibit clinical the signs of Charcot arthropathy but have yet to show radiographic changes ...
BACKGROUND: Surgical strategies to address deformities of the ankle and hindfoot in patients with Charcot arthropathy include the use of retrograde intramedullary nails and ring fixators. The literature has not shown superiority of one technique over the other. This study presents a single surgeons case series of Charcot arthropathy patients treated with either a ring fixator or retrograde intramedullary nail to achieve tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 27 consecutive patients with Charcot arthropathy who underwent a tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using either a retrograde intramedullary (IM) nail (n = 16 patients) or a ring fixator (RF) (n = 11 patients) by a single surgeon ...
Comfort Shoe Specialists of St. Louis are experts at assisting physicians and their patients maintain healed Charcot deformities.. Charcot Foot refers to the damage of the joints that occur in a neuropathic foot. Diabetics are prone to this condition due to autonomic neuropathy and hyper vascularity. The result is a weakened bone (osseous) structure. An undetected injury such as a stress fracture, rupture of a ligament or sprain can result in chronic swelling and damage to the supporting foot structures. The foot may collapse with weight bearing of normal walking since the neuropathy causes LOPS or Loss of Protective Sensation. The architecture of the foot is rearranged so that the arch may become inverted, causing a rocker bottom foot.. NOTE: If foot lacks sensation and is hot, swollen, and/or red, see a physician immediately. Often early detection and treatment by physicians specializing in Charcot foot with serial casting will result in a more normal shaped foot. Time is important!. ...

Diabetes can be a devastating disease. There are a lot of things that physicians are well trained to look for in the diabetic patient. There are other conditions that are not well known or understood. A condition known as "Diabetic Charcot Arthropathy" is often misdiagnosed. I bring this up because, in the past 2 months, Ive had two patients present with similar symptoms which turned out to be Charcot disease. It is now a fight to save their leg and early detection could have prevented that. So all of you diabetics out there, pay attention!. Each patient had the same symptoms. First, they were diabetic and had severe neuropathy (so no feeling in the feet). One day, they noticed an increase in swelling on one of their feet, ankle, and leg. The limb was also warm to touch and red. However, there wasnt any ulcer or open wound on the foot or ankle. They went to the hospital and the blood work was overall normal. They were still put on antibiotics and were diagnosed with infections (cellulitis). ...
Between January 2005 and October 2005, 60 consecutive diabetic patients with neuropathic plantar ulcers were seen and randomly assigned to two groups: group A, using an Aircast Pneumatic Walker (XP Diabetic Walker); and group B, using the fiberglass off-loading cast.. All participants had peripheral neuropathy, as highlighted by insensitivity to 10 g monofilament and vibration perception threshold measured by biothesiometer at malleolus of at least 25 volts, and presented with a neuropathic ulcer on the whole part of the plantar surface of the foot, including ulcers correlated with Charcot neuroarthropathy deformities.. We excluded patients with superficial tissue infection, osteomyelitis, TcPO2 (transcutaneous PO2) ,30 mmHg, ankle brachial index ,0.6, severe visual deficit, severe problems of equilibrium, amputation of the controlateral limb, and bilateral plantar ulcers. Clinical characteristics (age, sex, type of diabetes, and duration of diabetes) of both groups were comparable. The mean ...

Charcot foot is a progressive degenerative condition that affects the joints in the feet. It is associated with nerve damage (neuropathy) that decreases the ability to sense stimuli, including pain, and decreases muscular reflexes that control movement. As a result, the joints in the feet are subjected to repeated trauma and injury, causing progressive damage [...]
Surgery may be necessary to treat deformity caused by Charcot foot. Structures within the foot can be reshaped and bony protrusions can be removed surgically to prevent recurring ulcers.
Charcot foot is one of the most serious foot problems that diabetics can face. Consultant Endocrinologist Dr Mark Vanderpump explains.

The shape of your foot molds the cast. It lets your ulcer heal by distributing weight and relieving pressure. If you have Charcot foot, the cast controls your foots movement and supports its contours if you dont put any weight on it. To use a total contact cast, you need good blood flow in your foot. The cast is changed every week or two until your foot heals. A custom-walking boot is another way to treat your Charcot foot. It supports the foot until all the swelling goes down, which can take as long as a year. You should keep from putting your weight on the Charcot foot. Surgery is considered if your deformity is too severe for a brace or shoe ...
Patients who undergo surgery to correct arthritis in the foot are often diabetics with a type of arthritis known as Charcot Foot. The average age of patients developing a Charcot foot is 40 years. About one-third of patients develop a Charcot foot in both feet and/or ankles. This form of arthritis can develop suddenly and without pain. Quite suddenly, the bones in the foot and/or ankle can spontaneously fracture and fragment, often causing a severe deformity ...

A subset of patients have deforming, nonerosive Jaccouds arthropathy, and a minority have an arthropathy with clinical findings similar to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) that has been called "rhupus." We report our series of eight patients (seven female, one male) with rhupus arthropathy. Patients were between the ages of 17 and 38 years (average: 30.3 years) at disease onset. All had deforming or Jaccouds arthropathy, and three had erosive disease. The arthritis was typically the first disease manifestation. Other symptoms of lupus including ...
This report summarizes the radiographic results of Osteocel Plus in 20 hindfoot and ankle fusions at a single center. The patient population was 40% female with an average age of 57.9 ± 16.1 years. Average body mass index was 33.8 ± 9.1. Risk factors included 3 smokers and 6 patients with diabetes. Primary surgical indications included trauma (50%), Charcot arthropathy (15%), foot drop with osteoarthritis (20%), primary osteoarthritis (10%), and total talar extrusion (5%). Nine patients had a history of prior hindfoot surgery in the same foot; however, only 2 of the cases reported in this series were revisions due to a failed prior surgery; the remaining 7 were treated for correction of a traumatic deformity (n = 5) or diagnosis at a new site in the same foot (n = 2 ...
Objective: We recently described a family with neurological findings similar to HSAN (Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy) type V having a point mutation in the Nerve growth factor beta (NGFB) gene. The homozygous genotype gives disabling symptoms. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the symptoms in heterozygous patients. Methods: 26 patients heterozygous for the NGFB-mutation (12 men, mean age 50 (13-90) years) were examined clinically and answered a health status questionnaire, including the Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI). 28 relatives (15 men, mean age 44 (15-86) years) without the mutation served as controls in the clinical examination part. 23 of the heterozygotes were examined neurophysiologically and 6 heterozygous patients underwent a sural nerve biopsy. Results: The heterozygous phenotype ranged from 8 patients with Charcot arthropathy starting in adult age and associated with variable symptoms of neuropathy but without complete insensitivity to ...

Neuropathy is a universal feature of the affected limb. Although it has been suggested that people with a Charcot foot may have particular patterns of sensory loss reflecting involvement of different fibers (5,6), this is not generally accepted. Nevertheless, three groups have shown that people who have had an acute Charcot foot exhibit retention of vasodilatory reflexes in contrast to diabetic individuals with distal symmetrical neuropathy without CN (7-9).. Despite these observations, it should be noted that the syndrome might also occur in patients with a spectrum of unrelated diseases complicated by nerve damage. These include distal neuropathies caused by toxins (ethanol, drug related) and infection (leprosy), as well as diseases of the spinal cord and nerve roots (tabes dorsalis, trauma, syringomyelia) and a number of other conditions (Parkinsons disease, HIV, sarcoidosis, rheumatoid disease, and psoriasis). Although the neuroarthropathy is typically more proximal in those with disease of ...
Charcot was a towering figure in 19th century medicine. His clinic at the Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris was a magnet for physicians across Europe who came to learn from him. We remember him for eponymous clinical syndromes that include Charcot joints, Charcots triad, Charcot-Leyden crystals, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and others. Of special interest to me, Charcot was also a visual artist who incorporated photography into his teaching, case reports, and research. As a physician studying pressure ulcers, Charcot was way ahead of his time. Over the years I published several papers describing his theories concerning these wounds. Jean Martin Charcot was the first to offer a classification of pressure ulcers. For example he made a distinction between acute pressure sore which he called decubitus acutus, and chronic pressure sore, or decubitus chronicus. He also described a wound which heralded death which he called the decubitus ominosus. Unlike much of Charcots other work, his theories on ...
Increasing numbers of patients are being diagnosed with diabetes, and they are living longer because of improvements in treatment [1-3]. Ankle fractures in patients with diabetes mellitus have long been recognized as a challenge to orthopedic surgeons. Nonunion and lengthy wound healing in high-risk patients with diabetes, particularly in those with peripheral arterial disease and renal failure, as in the present case, are often fraught with complications [1-3]. Whether diabetic ankle fractures are best treated noninvasively or surgically is controversial [2]. Some previous studies have shown that nondisplaced fractures in high-risk patients can be managed nonsurgically in a cast [5, 6]. Treatment entails casting with non-weight-bearing restriction until fracture healing is demonstrated.. McCormack et al. described 26 ankle fractures in patients with diabetes; 19 were treated surgically, and seven were immobilized in casts. The surgical group included one wound complication (5%), four infections ...

As a result, They may be prone to developing ulcers and bacterial infections to the ft and legs, which may result in amputation. Equally, these individuals could possibly get a number of fractures in the knee, ankle or foot, and acquire a Charcot joint. Lack of motor functionality ends in dorsiflexion, contractures with the toes, loss of the interosseous muscle function that causes contraction with the digits, so-referred to as hammer toes. These contractures occur not merely while in the foot but in addition during the hand where by the lack of the musculature will make the hand seem gaunt and skeletal. The loss of muscular operate is progressive ...

Monogenic diseases make excellent models for the study of gene functions and basal cellular mechanisms in humans. The aim of this thesis was to elucidate how genetic mutations affect the basal cellular mechanisms in the monogenic diseases Nerve growth factor (NGF) dependent pain insensitivity and Iron-Sulphur cluster assembly protein U (ISCU) myopathy.. NGF dependent pain insensitivity is a rare genetic disorder with clinical manifestations that include insensitivity to deep pain, development of Charcot joints, and impaired temperature sensation but with no effect on mental abilities. The disease is caused by a missense mutation in the NGFβ gene causing a drastic amino acid substitution (R221W) in a well-conserved region of the protein. NGF is secreted in limited amounts by its target tissues and is important for the development and maintenance of the cholinergic forebrain neurons as well as the sensory and sympathetic neurons. To reveal the underlying mechanisms of disease we performed ...
In a letter to the June 21 issue of Journal of American Medicine, several physicians at the Medical University of South Carolina detailed their observations of six patients with diabetes who were suffering from needle fragments buried in the skin.. Although "silent needle" penetration has gone largely ignored, the letters authors report that six patients they saw who had tiny needle pieces buried in their tissue suffered from a variety of recurrent ailments, some of them severe. Two of the subjects had severe muscle weakness, three had neuropathic joint problems in the foot and ankle and one had amputation of the right great toe due to osteomyelitis.. The feet were especially prone to injury, as fragments can easily bury themselves in carpeted floors. One patient, however, had a fragment in the shoulder, and another had a fragment in the abdominal wall. All six patients suffered from neuropathy, and were unaware of the presence of needle shards.. The physicians write that needle disposal may be ...

Hello, I have been told by several spine specialists that I have Lumbar Facet Arthropathy. They also tell me that because I am only 21 that it cannot be the reason for my extreme pain in my back. So here is the question. Can someone at the age of 21 have lumbar facet arthropathy and if so what would be the viable treatment for this condition. Let me also add that I can no longer stand for more than 10 minutes at a time. I have been experiencing swelling in my lower legs and ankles that is so bad that it looks like I broke my ankles. The only time I am not in excruciating pain is when I am bending forward while standing or have something to lean on while walking, or sitting down. I also have had numbness in my legs and now I am having trouble with urinating in my pants on accident. What could be causing this much pain? I used to ride horses and participated in Hunter Jumper events along with some excercise riding for racehorses, so I have had many falls. Rode motorcycles for pleasure quite often ...

Swelling of the foot and ankle (caused by synovial fluid that leaks out of the joint capsule). Subluxation (misalignment of the bones that form a joint). Nerve damage causes muscle weakness and slack ligaments, which result in joint instability and subsequent subluxation and/or dislocation. Subluxation initiates the process of degenerative joint disease (arthropathy). The ends of misaligned bones grind against each other and fragments of bone and cartilage enter joint and often produce a coarse grating sound (audible crepitus) when the joint is moved. The physician may be able to feel these fragments in the joint.. Deformity of the foot, which occurs in advanced disease, is caused by joint displacement and/or dislocation, bone overgrowths (osteophytes), and fractures. Osteophytes may protrude from the top of the foot as the body forms new bone to replaces bone loss. Fractures may cause the tarsal bones to collapse, resulting in an outward bowing of the arch (called "rocker foot").. Complications ...

Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type I (HSAN I) is an autosomal dominant disorder, typically presenting in the second or later decade of life with prominent small fibre (drC and Aσ) sensory involvement. Variable degrees of motor and autonomic dysfunction may also be present. The sensory alterations are associated with the following: mutilating acropathy and peroneal muscle atrophy with weakness; neurogenic arthropathy without weakness; mutilating acropathy, with or without hearing loss, and with or without dementia; and restless legs with burning feet, and possibly other phenotypes.1. Mutations in serine palmitoyltransferase long chain base subunit-1 (SPTLC1) have been identified as the cause of HSAN I, at least for some kindreds.2-4 Affected individuals have increased de novo glucosyl ceramide synthesis in lymphoblast cell lines and resultant abnormal neuronal apoptosis, possibly explaining the neuronal degeneration found. In 14 previously reported HSAN I kindreds with identified ...
Still in nostalgic mood, there was a time when a neurologist just needed to know if a neuropathy was axonal (affecting the main nerve fiber), or demyelinating (involving the nerve ensheathing layer called myelin). Confine that classification to the history books because nodopathy is toppling the prevailing order. This is from a paper titled Nodopathies of the peripheral nerve: an emerging concept, in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry (JNNP). The authors of the paper are scathing of the traditional classification which, they say, is inadequate or even misleading. Why? Because many cases of typical demyelinating neuropathy demonstrate clear axonal changes. The authors explain this paradox by describing the anatomy of myelinated nerves which are made up of domains: node, paranode, juxta-paranode and inter-node. And it is the node which bucks the trend because it resolutely refuses to be ensheathed by myelin. And this singular act of defiance will be the source of anguish for ...

With as fine a misjudgment of symptoms, as a clear anticipation of the methods of Charcot, Dr. Auvers (or Hovert) had his patient plunged into a warm bath where his head was soused with cold water after which he was put to bed with half-a-dozen plump leeches affixed to his nose. He had groaned and cried and weakly struggled while his wretched body (you could feel the spine through the stomach) was carried to the deep wooden bath; he shivered as he lay naked in bed and kept pleading to have the leeches removed: they were dangling from his nose and getting into his mouth (Lift them, keep them away-he pleaded) and he tried to sweep them off so that his hands had to be held by stout Auverts (or Hauverss) hefty assistant." ...

Monitoring skin temperature can help not only predict, but also prevent foot ulcers that form as a result of diabetic neuropathy, according to a new study.. Published in the Journal of Food and Ankle Research, the study concludes that elevated skin temperature can serve as a predictor in the development of foot ulcers when comparing the temperature between the same site on both limbs.. Temperature has been used to mark inflammation and monitor foot issues such as neuropathic arthropathy, a degeneration of the weight-bearing joints of the foot and also related to diabetes.. But researchers said that after reviewing data from patients who had taken home a thermometer to track foot temperature much as they would blood glucose, the practice showed some success.. "It looks like the data suggest that checking temperature is maybe one of the most valuable tools in our combined arsenal for prevention," said Dr. David Armstrong, director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance in Podiatry ...

press release Goetz, C. G. (2000). Battle of the titans - Charcot and Brown-Sequard on cerebral localization. Neurology, 54(9), 1840-1847. Objective: To examine the differing views of Jean-Martin Charcot and Charles Edouard Brown-Sequard-two celebrated neuroscientists of the nineteenth century-on cerebral localization as exemplified in their controversial debate of 1875 at the Societe de Biologie in Paris. Background: As clinicopathologic correlations were developed in the mid and late nineteenth century, cerebral localization was a primary topic of debate at scientific, social, and religious levels. Charcot, representing an anatomic approach to research, and Brown-Sequard, representing a physiologic perspective, disagreed fundamentally on the importance of cerebral localization to normal behavior and neurologic illness. Methods: The minutes of the Societe de Biologie meetings of 1875 and 1876, as well as primary archive documents from the Archives Nationales de 1Academie des Sciences and the ...

In particular, Per was amongst the small group of pioneers who first emphasised the importance of, and brought about collaboration between, MS experts in Europe, whose legacy we see today in such institutions as ECTRIMS. It is Pers enormous merits in fostering international collaboration ...
Background Inflamed environments are typically hypercellular, rich in pro-inflammatory cytokines, and profoundly hypoxic. While the effects of hypoxia on neutrophil longevity and function have been widely studied, little is known about the consequences of this stimulus on eosinophils. Objective We sought to investigate the effects of hypoxia on several key aspects of eosinophil biology, namely secretion, survival, and their sensitivity to glucocorticosteroids (GCS), agents that normally induce eosinophil apoptosis. Methods Eosinophils derived from patients with asthma/atopy or healthy controls were incubated under normoxia and hypoxia, with or without glucocorticoids. Activation was measured by flow cytometry, ELISA of cultured supernatants, and F-actin staining; apoptosis and efferocytosis by morphology and flow cytometry; and GCS efficacy by apoptosis assays and qPCR. Results Hypoxic incubation (3 kPa) caused (i) stabilization of HIF-2α and up-regulation of hypoxia-regulated genes including ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) afflicts nearly 1% of the worldwide adult population. Cytokines released from immune cells cause chronic inflammation and stimulate the proliferation of synovial cells that destroy bone and cartilage of joints. But nearly 25% of RA patients do not respond to anti-cytokine therapy. This may be because synovial cell growth is also controlled by an enzyme called synoviolin. Amano et al. detected elevated synoviolin expression in the synovial tissue of RA patients. Mice overexpressing this molecule exhibited spontaneous arthropathy and a progressive synovial cell hyperplasia characteristic of RA patients. Reduced expression of synoviolin in mice correlated with protection from arthritis. This resistance was not due to an impaired cytokine response or reduced inflammatory cell infiltration, but to an increase in synovial cell apoptosis. Knockdown of synoviolin expression in rheumatoid synovial cells by RNA interference suppressed growth responses to cytokines. ...

Causes Causes of an adult acquired flatfoot may include Neuropathic foot (Charcot foot) secondary to Diabetes mellitus, Leprosy, Profound peripheral neuritis of any cause. Degenerative changes in the ankle, talonavicular or tarsometatarsal joints, or both, secondary to Inflammatory arthropathy, Osteoarthropathy, Fractures, Acquired flatfoot resulting from loss of the supporting structures of the medial longitudinal arch. Dysfunction of the tibialis posterior tendon Tear of the spring (calcaneoanvicular) ligament (rare). Tibialis anterior rupture (rare). Painful flatfoot can have other causes, such as tarsal coalition, but as such a patient will not present with a change in the shape of the foot these are not included here. Symptoms Symptoms of pain may have developed gradually as result of overuse or they may be traced to one minor injury. Typically, the pain localizes to the inside (medial) aspect of the ankle, under the medial malleolus. However, some patients will also experience pain over ...

Discussion. Crocodilians differ from other egg laying archosaurs (dinosaurs and birds) in that they lack medullary bone in the endosteal cavities of the long bones (Schweitzer et al. 2007). The epiphyses of the long bones in crocodiles therefore often appear eroded as more of the remodelling seems to take place on the outside of the bone, as seen in the cases described. Therefore, a certain degree of erosion may have to be considered normal.. In early stages of osteoarthropathy, the periosteal surface of the epiphyses alone appears to be affected and shows deep longitudinal furrows up to and undermining the articular surfaces. In advanced stages, there is collapse of the articular surface, which, in turn, can stimulate an inflammatory reaction in the form of osteoarthritis.. The cases described here originated from routine post-mortem examinations and are therefore random findings without any particular geographical or epidemiological pattern. The wild specimens came from the Limpopo province ...
Unilateral lower extremity hypertrophic osteoarthropathy may be the initial symptom of an infected aortic graft.

Offloading is key to preventing or healing plantar neuropathic foot ulcers in diabetes. Total contact casts or walkers rendered irremovable are recommended in guidelines as first-line options for offloading, however the use of such devices has been found to be low. This study aimed to investigate offloading practices for diabetes-related plantar neuropathic ulcers. An online survey of closed and open-ended questions was administered via SurveyMonkey®. Forty-one podiatrists experienced in high-risk foot practice, from 21 high-risk foot services around Australia, were approached to participate. The response rate was 88%. Participants reported using 21 modalities or combinations of modalities, for offloading this ulcer type. The most frequently used modalities under the forefoot and hallux were felt padding, followed by removable casts or walkers, then non-removable casts or walkers. Participants indicated that many factors were considered when selecting offloading modality, including: compliance, risk of

The absence of an underlying cause and the genetic history prompted a diagnosis of pachydermoperostosis or primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. Discussion Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (HOA) includes: pachydermoperiostosis, the primary form of which accounts for 5% of cases; and secondary HOA, 80% of which cases are associated with primary or metastatic pulmonary malignancies (and therefore previously called hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy). Other associations include intrathoracic lymphoma, rheumatic diseases such as systemic vasculitis, congenital cardiac disease, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, inflammatory bowel disease, and infections such as tuberculosis, subacute bacterial endocarditis and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Primary HOA is rare and often familial, transmitted as autosomal dominant with variable penetrance. Autosomal recessive cases have been reported. There is a male:female predominance of 7:1. First recognised by Touraine, Solente and Gole in 1935, it is also ...

Hartmut Wekerle was director and member of the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology. In 2012 he was awarded a Hertie Senior Professorship, and he leads an Extended Emeritus Group. Hartmut Wekerles scientific research focuses on the mechanisms initiating and driving multiple sclerosis and its experimental models, which imply autoimmune attack against the nervous system. Wekerles work led to the identification of brain reactive autoimmune T lymphocytes in the immune system. Most recently, he identified the commensal bacterial gut flora as a factor triggering the pathogenic potential of immune cells. He develops and uses new imaging approaches to detail the mechanisms of autoimmune T cell migration into the brain. Wekerle has received numerous awards, including the Jung Prize, Zülch Prize, Koetser Prize, Charcot Award (MS International Federation), Grand Prix Louis D. (Institut de France), and a Koselleck Award (DFG). He holds an Honorary Professorship of the University of Munich and Honorary ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Imaging of peripheral nerve lesions. AU - Fahr, L. M.. AU - Sauser, Donald. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - The imaging of peripheral nerve lesions remains limited to the radiographic demonstration of secondary skeletal lesions in birth trauma, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, neuropathic arthropathy, leprosy, and congenital indifference to pain. Nerve root avulsions can be imaged directly and the newer imaging modalities now allow delineation of lesions that previously could not be studied using conventional radiography. The ability of ultrasound, CT, and MRI to differentiate soft tissue structures makes it possible, in many instances, to study the primary abnormality in trauma, nerve entrapment syndromes, and tumors. With fractures, the possibility of trauma to adjacent nerves can only be inferred on the radiographs, while the role that peripheral nerve injury plays remains controversial in other entities, such as amputation with replantation. Imaging of peripheral nerve lesions ...
Although the treatment of diabetic neuropathic foot ulcers has been studied extensively, few previous randomised trials have compared the effectiveness of pressure relieving devices that reduce the mechanical stresses associated with neuropathic ulcers.1. The strength of this study by Armstrong et al lies in the fact that it was a randomised trial. 3 commonly used treatments were compared, one of which, the TCC, is considered by many to be the "gold standard".2 The authors indicate that TCCs are expensive (because of the need for frequent cast changes and skilled personnel), but no cost effectiveness analysis was done. TCCs were associated with a large reduction in mobility, and costs to patients resulting from employment problems, increased transport costs, and reduced social interactions may be large. Furthermore, although reduced activity is good for the healing of neuropathic ulcers, it may have a negative effect on blood glucose control and weight management. The psychosocial effects of ...

Diabetes mellitus is developing into a pandemic, mainly affecting Sub-Saharan Africa, and the prevalence of complications is increasing. Diabetic foot disorders are a major source of disability and morbidity. Delay in the health care process due to patients beliefs might have deleterious consequences for life and limb in persons with diabetic foot ulcers. No previous studies of beliefs about health and illness in persons with diabetic foot ulcers living in Africa have been identified. The aim of the study was to explore beliefs about health and illness among Ugandans with diabetic foot ulcers that might affect health-related behaviour including self-care and care seeking. An explorative study was implemented with consecutive sample and semi-structured interviews were held with 14 Ugandan men and women, aged 40-79, with diabetic foot ulcers. The main findings showed that knowledge was limited about causes, management and prevention of diabetic foot ulcers. Foot ulcers were often detected as ...
A diabetic foot ulcer is one of the common symptoms of diabetes. More than 40% of diabetic patients can get this nasty foot sore, while 25% of that percentage have been hospitalized due to the injury. While a diabetic foot ulcer, in and of itself, is nothing but a minor wound, this condition is only serious due to the fact that the patient is suffering from diabetes. This means that it is very unlikely for the wound to heal. It should be dressed and treated at all times and checked frequently by a doctor.. A diabetic foot ulcer that is left untreated could lead to serious infections, gangrenes, and more serious illnesses. If your body does not succumb to these two symptoms, then the only option left to remove the foot ulcer is to have your foot amputated, and this is one thing we would all like to avoid.. This foot sore brought by diabetes is caused by various factors, but its commonly due to stress and pressure being applied on the patients foot. To simply state, a diabetic foot sore can open ...
