Joint-specific prevalence of osteoarthritis of the hand. (1/30)

PURPOSE: To quantify the prevalence of radiographic hand osteoarthritis (OA) among a group of community-dwelling individuals. Joint-specific prevalence rates/100 of radiographic OA of the hand were quantified and reported by age, gender, and dominant hand. METHODS: Data from a community-based, longitudinal study designed to follow the natural history of OA were used. Participants were ambulatory men and women, ages 40 years and older, with and without radiographic hand OA (N = 3327). Bilateral hand OA was examined at three joints: second distal interphalangeal joints (DIP), third proximal interphalangeal joints (PIP), and first carpometacarpal joint of the thumb (CMC). The ordinal scale of Kellgren and Lawrence (0-4) was used to determine OA status (grades 2+). RESULTS: Radiographic hand OA status was determined for all persons in the study group comprised of 2302 women (69%) and 1025 men (31%). The sample sizes for the age groups (years) were 532 (40-49), 905 (50-59), 998 (60-69), 749 (70-79), and 143 (80+). Overall, the DIP joint demonstrated the highest OA prevalence, while the PIP joint showed the lowest prevalence. Joint-specific hand OA prevalence rates for second DIP, third PIP, and first CMC were 35%, 18%, and 21%, respectively. Expectedly, hand OA prevalence for all joints increased with age. With exceptions, women demonstrated higher hand OA prevalence rates for the three sites examined. However, among men aged 40-49, the second DIP joint OA rate was higher (13%) compared with women (8%). Additionally, men in that age group demonstrated an elevated first CMC joint OA rate (9%) compared with women (5%). Gender-specific hand dominance analyses demonstrated that the majority of individuals with unilateral second DIP or third PIP OA presented in their dominant hand. However, among those with unilateral first CMC OA, both genders displayed a tendency to present in their nondominant hand. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest the need for further investigation of the role gender can play in the development of hand OA in populations under 60 years of age. Additional epidemiological studies addressing hand OA will serve to bridge the gap between the current levels of knowledge about the knee and the hand. The disease burden of hand OA affects a large percentage of the population. Research efforts that more exhaustively characterize the prevalence of hand OA may contribute toward interventions that, ultimately, impact a rapidly growing segment of our population.  (+info)

Validity of self-report measures of pain and disability for persons who have undergone arthroplasty for osteoarthritis of the carpometacarpal joint of the hand. (2/30)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the validity of three self-report scales used to measure function following arthroplasty for osteoarthritis (OA) of the carpometacarpal joint. METHOD: Persons with OA of the carpometacarpal joint (n=122) were assessed on one occasion 9-117 months following tendon interposition arthroplasty. They completed three self-report measures of hand/upper limb disability: the Australian/Canadian Osteoarthritis Hand Index (AUSCAN), the Patient-Rated Wrist Hand Evaluation (PRWHE), and the Disabilities of Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH). They also completed the Short Form 36 (SF-36) and performed tests of strength, range of motion (ROM), and dexterity. Factor analysis and correlations were used to determine the association among the scales and subscales considered to measure similar constructs (e.g., pain and physical disability). Correlations between the scales and measures of impairment were also conducted to examine construct validity of the disability measures. t-Tests evaluated the hypotheses that subjects with isolated hand OA would have lower scores than those with additional joint involvement. RESULTS: All three scales or their subscales loaded on one factor. Convergent validity of the disability measures was demonstrated by high correlations between similar subscales (r>0.75), and divergent validity by a lack of correlation between the measures and self-report hand appearance. As expected, correlations between disability and strength, dexterity, or a global measure of ROM were higher than with ROM of individual joints. The AUSCAN and the DASH were better able to discriminate those with localized hand OA from those with involvement of other joints. CONCLUSIONS: The AUSCAN, PRWHE, and DASH are valid assessments of pain and/or disability of hand OA, and provide information distinct from impairment measures.  (+info)

Do metabolic factors add to the effect of overweight on hand osteoarthritis? The Rotterdam Study. (3/30)

BACKGROUND: As hand joints are non-weight bearing, the association between overweight and hand osteoarthritis (HOA) is critical to understanding how overweight may associate with osteoarthritis (OA) apart from axial load. Overweight might be associated with the occurrence of OA through other metabolic factors. AIM: To evaluate the role of overweight in HOA, cross-sectional data of a population-based study were used (> or =55 years, n = 3585). The role of diabetes, hypertension and total cholesterol:high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol ratio on HOA, and whether they play an intermediate role in the association of overweight/HOA was investigated. Furthermore, the prevalence of HOA in the concurrent presence of overweight and other metabolic factors was evaluated. RESULTS: Independently of other metabolic factors, overweight (body mass index (BMI) >27.4 kg/m(2)) showed a significant association with HOA (OR 1.4, 95% CI 1.2 to 1.7). The association between diabetes and HOA was only present in people aged 55-62 years (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.0 to 3.8), but was absent in the total population or in other age groups. The association of hypertension with HOA was weak, and disappeared after adjustment for BMI. The total/HDL cholesterol ratio showed no significant association with HOA. The concurrent presence of overweight, diabetes and hypertension resulted in an even higher prevalence of HOA (OR 2.3, 95% CI 1.3 to 3.9) compared with subjects with none of these characteristics; this prevalence increased further in the younger age group (OR 3.2, 95% CI 1.1 to 8.8). CONCLUSION: No intermediate effect of metabolic factors on the association of overweight with HOA was found. An increase in the prevalence of HOA, however, seems to be present when overweight occurs together with hypertension and diabetes especially at a relatively young age.  (+info)

Work-related bilateral osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joints. (4/30)

BACKGROUND: A 44-year-old industrial worker produced panels for folding doors for 9 years. During this period, he developed osteoarthritis (OA) of both first carpometacarpal joints. Surgery was performed without improvement. METHODS: Clinical examination, demonstration and recording of work conditions, with photos and videos. The literature concerning first carpometacarpal OA was reviewed using PubMed. RESULTS: The observation of work conditions demonstrated unusual forceful and repetitive ulnar flexion of both first fingers. No competing causes of OA could be identified. CONCLUSION: This patient had specific and intense work-related strain of both first carpometacarpal joints. A good temporal relation between work exposure and disease development was demonstrated and it appears likely that the OA was caused by work. However, there is very limited epidemiological evidence relating first carpometacarpal OA to work exposure.  (+info)

Isolated thumb carpometacarpal dislocation is a rare injury pattern and the optimal treatment option is still controversial. We present a 27-year-old basketball player who underwent an isolated dorsal dislocation of the thumb carpometacarpal joint after a fall. The dislocation was successfully reduced by closed means but the joint was found to be grossly unstable. Due to inherent instability, repair of the ruptured dorsoradial ligament and joint capsule was performed. The ligament was detached from its proximal insertion into trapezium and subsequently stabilized via suture anchors. The torn capsule was repaired in an end-to-end fashion and immobilization of the joint was applied for 6 weeks. At 3-year follow up evaluation the patient was pain free and returned to his previous level of activity. No restriction of carpometacrpal movements or residual instability was noticed. Radiographic examination showed normal joint alignment and no signs of subluxation or early osteoarthritis. Surgical stabilization
Background. The current guidelines for treatment of carpometacarpal osteoarthritis recommend starting with conservative treatment before a surgical procedure is considered. Objective. The objective was to investigate how response to conservative treatment, in terms of pain and hand function, influences the hazard that patients convert to surgical treatment. Design. This was a multicenter, prospective cohort study. Methods. Participants comprised 701 patients who received 3 months of hand therapy and an orthosis. Pain and function were measured with the Michigan Hand Questionnaire (MHQ) at baseline and at 6 weeks and 3 months follow-up. Conversion to surgical treatment was recorded from clinical records. Joint modeling (a statistical method of combining prediction models) was used to perform the analysis and to calculate hazard ratios (HRs). Results. The joint analytical model showed that both MHQ pain score at a certain point (HR = 0.93; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.92-0.94) and change in ...

Definition of dorsal carpometacarpal ligaments. Provided by Stedmans medical dictionary and Drugs.com. Includes medical terms and definitions.
The Bennetts fracture occurs at the base of the thumb metacarpal (the longest bone in the thumb) where it articulates with one of the carpal (wrist) bones called the trapezium. It forms the thumb or first carpometacarpal (CMC) joint. The contour of the trapezium and thumb metacarpal base forms a saddle-joint and contributes significantly to the joints stability. This creates a complex joint that allows the thumb to have complex motion and to function as an opposable digit. In a Bennetts fracture, the fracture begins at the volar (palm side), ulnar base of the thumb metacarpal and extends in an oblique fashion distally. The volar oblique ligament connects the base of the thumb with the trapezium and is the primary soft-tissue stabilizer of the thumb CMC joint. This strong ligament functionally remains intact after a Bennetts fracture and allows the articular fracture fragment to maintain its anatomic relationship with the trapezium. However, the rest of the metacarpal fragment is subject to ...
Purpose: Basal joint arthritis, or carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthritis, of the thumb is very common, particularly in the elderly. Morbidities include pain, decreased range of motion, and decreased strength. Nonsurgical treatments for CMC arthritis include oral analgesics, splinting, and steroid injection. In multiple recent trials, botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) injection has been shown to be an efficacious nonsurgical option for osteoarthritis of large joints, including those that have failed steroid injections. To our knowledge, the efficacy of BTX-A injection in thumb CMC arthritis has not been examined.. Methods: Patients with a clinical and radiographic diagnosis of basal joint arthritis who are appropriate and willing candidates for injection therapy will be selected. The primary symptom indicating need for injection would be pain not controlled with more conservative measures (e.g. nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), splinting, physical therapy, etc.) Weakness and impaired ...
Edward H.Bennett, an Irish surgeon, described Bennetts Fracture in 1881.It is an intraarticular fracture through the base of the first metacarpal.The shaft is laterally dislocated by the unopposed pull of the abductor pollicis longus, but the medial projection remains in place or slightly rotated because of its capsular attachment.Bennetts fracture is uncommon and the injury occurs when the thumb metacarpal is axially loaded and partialy flexed.The volar lip fragment is of variable size, byramidial in shape, and consist of the volar-ulnar aspect of the metacarpal base.The anterior oblique ligament, which runs from the volar lip to the trapezium, holds the fragment in anatomic position.The remaining metacarpal base sublaxates radially, proximally, and dorsally. Accurate Radiographs are important in establishing congruity of the carpometacarpal joint, the technique necessary to get a true lateral view of the joint. The palmar surface of the forearm and hand are placed flat on the cassette, and ...

The scaphoid is unique in that it crosses both proximal and distal rows of the carpal bones, thus serving as a type of link between the rows. Also, as stated above, there are many ligaments associated with the scaphoid, of which the scapholunate is the strongest stabilizer.7 Due to these aspects, the scaphoid is important in maintaining normal biomechanics of the wrist. All biomechanical movements within the wrist and hand complex occur as a series of rolls and glides between concave and convex surfaces.8. At the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb, abduction and adduction occur in the sagittal plane, while flexion and extension take place in the frontal plane. The abduction and adduction movements occur as the convex surface of the thumb metacarpal moves on the concave surface of the trapezium. When abducting the thumb, the convex surface of the metacarpal rolls palmarly while it slides dorsally on the trapezium.8 Conversely, during adduction, the convex surface of the metacarpal rolls dorsally ...
The movements are as same as in the condyloid joint; that is to say, flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, and circumduction are allowed; but no axial rotation. Saddle joints are said to be biaxial, allowing movement in the sagittal and frontal planes. The only saddle joints in the human body are the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb and the sternoclavicular joints.[1] ...
2006; 7(44): 1-7. If localized pain is reported in the anatomical snuffbox, a fracture of the scaphoid is the most likely cause.The scaphoid has a unique blood supply, which runs distal to proximal. Graston Technique of manual soft tissue mobilization along with the eccentric exercise is also helpful. Horn KK, Jennings S, Richardson G, et al. [16] (See video ).

A common malady of the thumb in the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint is osteoarthritis (OA), also known as basal thumb arthritis or trapeziometacarpal (TMC) arthritis. This affliction is often the result of ligament laxity or injury to the thumb, which then creates a cascade of arthritic effects. This study documents the benefits of Prolotherapy for 13 patients with TMC joint osteoarthritis in 17 of their thumbs. Specifically, Hackett-Hemwall dextrose Prolotherapy counteracts the tissue degeneration that leads to pain and stiffness by creating a healing cascade, which begins with inflammation and proceeds to connective tissue repair. During each treatment session, patients received an average of 10 injections of dextrose-a simple sugar used as a safe inflammatory agent-in the afflicted thumb joint and surrounding connective tissue. In addition, hGH was added to the intra-articular injections for its hormonal effects on cartilage growth. Using the VAS scale, patients were asked to rate pain and ...

A momentary lapse of concentration is all it takes for a finger to become trapped, to receive a bump on the head or sprain an ankle - and it hurts.

Moreover, ongoing pain in the sense of chronic pain can be a disease in its own right.
