The clinical manifestations and pathomechanics of contracture of the extensor mechanism of the knee. (2/1089)

Experience with thirty-eight Asian children and adolescents who presented with either stiffness of the knee, genu recurvatum, habitual dislocation of the patella or congenital lateral dislocation of the patella showed that all those disorders were manifestations of contracture of the extensor mechanism, which fell into two groups according to the components involved. In Group I the main components affected were in the midline of the limb, namely rectus femoris and vastus intermedius; these patients presented with varying degrees of stiffness of the knee, or worse, with genu recurvatum. In Group II the main components involved were lateral to the midline of the limb, namely vastus lateralis and the ilio-tibial band; these patients presented with habitual dislocation of the patella, or worse, congenital lateral dislocation of the patella. In both groups untreated patients developed secondary adaptive changes such as subluxation of the tibia or marked genu valgum which made operative procedures more formidable and less effective. Release of the contracture should therefore be performed as early as possible.  (+info)

The locked patella. An unusual complication of haemophilia. (3/1089)

Mechanical derangements of the knee are an uncommon complication of chronic haemophiliac arthropathy. Two patients with locking of the patella were treated by manipulation. The mechanism of the injury was forced flexion of the knee joint beyond the limit of its restricted range. The injury is a serious one and may take six months to recover.  (+info)

Larsen syndrome in two generations of an Italian family. (4/1089)

This paper describes a familial case of Larsen syndrome. Typical anomalies were present in the propositus and 2 of his 6 daughters. In addition, all patients had progressive deafness and the 2 daughters had cleft palate. The certain exclusion of any consanguinity between the couple, suggests, in this instance, the dominant mode of transmission of the syndrome.  (+info)

Diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders: interobserver agreement and determinants of disagreement. (5/1089)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the interobserver agreement on the diagnostic classification of shoulder disorders, based on history taking and physical examination, and to identify the determinants of diagnostic disagreement. METHODS: Consecutive eligible patients with shoulder pain were recruited in various health care settings in the Netherlands. After history taking, two physiotherapists independently performed a physical examination and subsequently the shoulder complaints were classified into one of six diagnostic categories: capsular syndrome (for example, capsulitis, arthritis), acute bursitis, acromioclavicular syndrome, subacromial syndrome (for example, tendinitis, chronic bursitis), rest group (for example, unclear clinical picture, extrinsic causes) and mixed clinical picture. To quantify the interobserver agreement Cohen's kappa was calculated. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was applied to determine which clinical characteristics were determinants of diagnostic disagreement. RESULTS: The study population consisted of 201 patients with varying severity and duration of complaints. The kappa for the classification of shoulder disorders was 0.45 (95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.37, 0.54). Diagnostic disagreement was associated with bilateral involvement (odds ratio (OR) 1.9; 95% CI 1.0, 3.7), chronic complaints (OR 2.0; 95% CI 1.1, 3.7), and severe pain (OR 2.7; 95% CI 1.3, 5.3). CONCLUSIONS: Only moderate agreement was found on the classification of shoulder disorders, which implies that differentiation between the various categories of shoulder disorders is complicated. Especially patients with high pain severity, chronic complaints and bilateral involvement represent a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. As diagnostic classification is a guide for treatment decisions, unsatisfactory reproducibility might affect treatment outcome. To improve the reproducibility, more insight into the reproducibility of clinical findings and the value of additional diagnostic procedures is needed.  (+info)

Do postal questionnaires change GPs' workload and referral patterns? (6/1089)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine changes in workload in general practice associated with the postal administration of a health needs questionnaire. METHOD: We carried out controlled before-and-after intervention study of the effects of delivering a postal questionnaire to assess needs for care for patients with arthropathies of the hip and knee, groin hernia and varicose veins, and to assess health service utilization, general health status and risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The setting was a seven-partner, fundholding, group practice in Avon. The subjects were patients registered with an NHS group practice situated in Backwell and Nailsea, Avon. The outcome measures were the frequency of consultation, home visits and night visits, reasons for consultation, referral to specialist agencies and patterns of prescribing. RESULTS: There was no significant difference between the study and control group in the year before and the year after the postal administration of the questionnaire with respect to changes in overall frequency of consultation, frequency of referral (including type of referral) and frequency of prescribing of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In the study group there was a significant (P<0.05) reduction in the number of daytime home visits and prescriptions written for analgesics. Analysis of the records of those who had received a medical examination, in addition to a postal questionnaire, showed that there was no significant difference between the study and control group with respect to frequency of consultation, referral to outside agencies or items prescribed. CONCLUSION: Administration of a health needs questionnaire to patients registered with this general practice was not associated with an increase in consultation frequency or referral, or a change in prescribing patterns. No plausible explanation could be identified for the significant reduction in the number of home visits and prescriptions written for analgesics. It was concluded that these results were a statistical artefact. On the basis of the evidence from this study, GPs can be reassured that the administration of health needs questionnaires of the type used in this study will not result in any increase in workload or costs of care incurred by increased referrals to outside agencies or increased prescribing.  (+info)

Blood-induced joint damage: a human in vitro study. (7/1089)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate mechanisms underlying cartilage damage caused by brief exposure of cartilage to blood, such as that occurring during intraarticular bleeding. METHODS: Human articular cartilage was cultured for 4 days in the presence of blood (components; 7.5-50% volume/volume). The synthesis of cartilage matrix, as determined by proteoglycan synthesis (incorporation of 35SO4(2-)), was measured directly after exposure and after a recovery period of 20 days, during which the cartilage was cultured in the absence of blood or blood components. The production of the cytokines interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor a (TNFalpha), which have a destructive effect on cartilage, was determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and the viability of chondrocytes was determined by measuring lactate dehydrogenase release and with electron microscopy. The involvement of oxygen metabolites was evaluated by using N-acetylcysteine. RESULTS: Brief exposure to blood resulted in dose-dependent inhibition of proteoglycan synthesis. The combination of mononuclear cells and red blood cells was responsible for this effect. The effect was irreversible, independent of IL-1 and TNFalpha production, and was accompanied by chondrocyte death. These effects were partially prevented by N-acetylcysteine. CONCLUSION: Brief exposure of cartilage to blood, as occurs after a single episode or a limited number of bleeding episodes, results in lasting cartilage damage in vitro, in which cytotoxic oxygen metabolites play a role.  (+info)

Blood-induced joint damage: a canine in vivo study. (8/1089)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the direct and indirect (via synovial inflammation) effects of intraarticular bleeding on cartilage in vivo. METHODS: Right knees of 14 beagle dogs were injected with autologous blood on days 0 and 2. Cartilage matrix proteoglycan turnover, collagen damage, and synovial inflammation of these knees, including the cartilage-destructive properties of the synovial tissue, were determined and compared with those of the left control knees on day 4 (short-term effects; n = 7) and day 16 (long-term effects; n = 7). RESULTS: Injected knees had a diminished content of proteoglycans in the cartilage matrix, and release of proteoglycans was enhanced (days 4 and 16). The synthesis of proteoglycans was significantly inhibited on day 4 but was enhanced on day 16. On day 4 more collagen was denatured in the injected joint than in the control joint; this effect was no longer detectable on day 16. Synovial tissue showed signs of inflammation on day 4 and day 16 but had cartilage-destructive properties only on day 16. CONCLUSION: In vivo exposure of articular cartilage to blood for a relatively short time results in lasting changes in chondrocyte activity and in cartilage matrix integrity, changes that may predict lasting joint damage over time. Interestingly, the direct effect of blood on cartilage precedes the indirect effect via synovial inflammation.  (+info)

Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Hadied on advanced degenerative joint disease: Degenerative joint disease is an outdated term for osteoarthritis of peripheral joints. Degenerative disc disease is sometimes diagnosed when vertebral spurs are noted. The latter phenomenon, referred to most accurately as spondylosis deformans, is asymptomatic. It may be associated with disc disease, but disc damage does not necessarily cause pain. for topic: Advanced Degenerative Joint Disease
Cervical pillar hyperplasia (CPH) is a recently described phenomenon of unknown etiology and clinical significance. Global assessment of pillar hyperplasia of the cervical spine as a unit has not shown a relationship with degenerative joint disease, but a more sensible explanation of the architectural influence of CPH on cervical spine biomechanics may be segment-specific. The objective of this study was to determine the level of association between degenerative joint disease (DJD) and cervical pillar hyperplasia (CPH) in an age- and gender-matched sample on a [cervical spine] by-level basis. Two-hundred and forty radiographs were collected from subjects ranging in age between 40 and 69 years. The two primary outcome measures used in the study were the segmental presence/absence of cervical pillar hyperplasia from C3 to C6, and segment-specific presence/absence of degenerative joint disease from C1 to C7. Contingency Coefficients, at the 5% level of significance, at each level, were used to determine

Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) is more commonly known as arthritis. DJD is a progressive, non-infectious condition of the weight-bearing joints. This can be caused by an age, heredity or an injury-related mechanical instability within the joint. During the early stages of DJD, the cartilage softens, creating a roughened joint surface. As the disease progresses, new bone formations (remodeling) are created within the joint, which leads to a decreased blood-supply, inhibiting new cartilage growth and repair. Some clinical signs of DJD include:. • Joint stiffness. • Difficulty and/or crying out when getting up and down. • Reluctance to go for walks, car rides or to climb stairs. • Reluctance to bear weight on limb. As the disease progresses, these symptoms will become more severe, sometimes to the extent that the animal will not use the affected limb. As with humans, the symptoms of DJD are often aggravated by damp and/or cold weather.. ...
Degenerative joint disease (arthritis) often happens in the joint of a big toe. This bone growth may cause pain and stiffness in the joint. Left untreated, arthritis can break down the cartilage and destroy the joint. Your treatment choices depend on how damaged your joint is. There are many nonsurgical treatments, but if these are not helpful, surgery may be considered.

Muscle strain: Muscle swelling or bruising could be a red flag for a muscle strain. Also known as a pulled muscle, this pesky pain refers to the tearing of muscle tendons and fibers attached to a muscle. Sometimes bruising or even local bleeding occurs because a torn muscle can also damage tiny blood vessels. The best treatment for a strained, pulled, or torn muscle is rest combined with ice and heat.. Joint pain: Joint pain is discomfort that comes from - you guessed it - a joint, or the point where two or more bones meet in the body. In runners, joint problems are common in knees, the spine, ankles, hips, and even the big toe. The jury is still out if distance running (such as marathon training) actually increases the chances of joint problems. In fact, one study claims endurance running doesnt up the chances of joint issues in the knees and hips. Still, its something to be conscious of, so take note of swelling, which is the biggest sign of joint pain. To ensure joints stay healthy, avoid ...

What Is It?. Arthritis is a joint problem that can reduce mobility and cause pain. Often seen in older dogs, arthritis can by caused by injury, infection, the bodys own immune system, or developmental problems. The most common form of arthritis is called osteoarthritis (osteo = bone; arthr = joint; itis = disease) or degenerative joint disease. Normally, joints form smooth connections between bones. Osteoarthritis involves thinning of joint cartilage (a protective cushioning between bones), buildup of fluid within the joint, and the formation of bony growths within the joint. Over time, this can lead to reduced joint mobility as well as pain. Osteoarthritis affects one of every five dogs.. Signs and Diagnosis. ...

Joints most commonly affected; elbow, hip, stifle.. Diagnosis of DJD. Relies on a combination of owner observations of changes in behaviour, altered mobility, a careful orthopaedic examination (with severe DJD there may be joint thickening, reduced range of movement and/or pain on joint manipulation), radiographs and response to a therapeutic trial. It is important not to rely on a single criterion such as radiographs, as changes on X-rays do not necessarily correlate with clinically significant disease (i.e., radiographs can be unremarkable in some cats with significant DJD, and radiographically abnormal joints are not always painful (Lascelles 2010c; Freire et al. 2011).. Tips for Cats with DJD: Use Multimodal Management. Handle with Care.

There are many different surgical options for AP. Surgical removal of the fragment is possible, however, can result in instability of the joint and continued degenerative joint disease. If the problem is diagnosed very early, the AP can sometimes be permanently fixed to the ulna. Unfortunately, in many cases the AP is already too damaged for this repair by the time diagnosis is made. Another possible option is ulnar osteotomy (surgical division or excision of the bone, or a portion of the bone) to relieve the pressure on the anconeal process. In theory, with the pressure removed, the anconeal process can fuse normally. This procedure, in appropriate cases, is reported to be very effective in restoring pain‑free use of the elbow and delaying the progression of DJD. With any form of surgery, degenerative joint disease (DJD) is still likely to develop, but at a much slower rate.. ...
