Migration of the Duraloc cup at two years. (1/1417)

We carried out 71 primary total hip arthroplasties using porous-coated, hemispherical press-fit Duraloc '100 Series' cups in 68 consecutive patients; 61 were combined with the cementless Spotorno stem and ten with the cemented Lubinus SP II stem. Under-reaming of 2 mm achieved a press-fit. Of the 71 hips, 69 (97.1%) were followed up after a mean of 2.4 years. Migration analysis was performed by the Ein Bild Rontgen Analyse method, with an accuracy of 1 mm. The mean total migration after 24 months was 1.13 mm. Using the definition of loosening as a total migration of 1 mm, it follows that 30 out of 63 cups (48%) were loose at 24 months.  (+info)

Long-term results of spherical acetabular osteotomy. (2/1417)

We have examined the effect of the Wagner spherical acetabular osteotomy on preserving the joint in 38 hips with a mean follow-up of 17 years. At the time of the initial operation, 55% of patients had clinical symptoms and 30 joints showed minimal or absent radiological signs of osteoarthritis. At follow-up, 54% of patients had a good functional result. The osteotomy improved the mean centre-edge angle from -3 degrees to +15 degrees, the mean anterior centre-edge angle to 23 degrees and the acetabular head index to 75%. The obliquity of the acetabular roof decreased from 28 degrees to 16 degrees. One patient improved, but 14 deteriorated with joint degeneration. Of these, one progressed because of postoperative deep-tissue infection and five due to undercorrection. One patient needed total joint replacement after 14 years. At 17 years after operation, Wagner osteotomy had prevented progression of secondary arthritis in 63% of cases.  (+info)

Cytokine levels in synovial fluid from hips with well-functioning or loose prostheses. (3/1417)

We analysed synovial fluid from 88 hips, 38 with osteoarthritis and 12 with well-functioning and 38 with loose hip prostheses. The levels of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta (71 hips) and IL-6 (45 hips) were measured using the ELISA technique. Joints with well-functioning or loose prostheses had significantly increased levels of TNF-alpha compared with those with osteoarthritis. Hips with aseptic loosening also had higher levels of IL-1beta but not of IL-6 compared with those without an implant. The levels of TNF-alpha and IL-1beta did not differ between hips with stable and loose prostheses. Higher levels of TNF-alpha were found in hips with bone resorption of type II and type III (Gustilo-Pasternak) compared with those with type-I loosening. The level of cytokines in joint fluid was not influenced by the time in situ of the implants or the age, gender or area of the osteolysis as measured on conventional radiographs. Our findings support the theory that macrophages in the joint capsule increase the production of TNF-alpha at an early phase probably because of particle load and in the absence of clinical loosening. Since TNF-alpha has an important role in the osteolytic process, the interfaces should be protected from penetration of joint fluid.  (+info)

Prevalence of generalised osteoarthritis in patients with advanced hip and knee osteoarthritis: the Ulm Osteoarthritis Study. (4/1417)

OBJECTIVES: Different prevalences of generalised osteoarthritis (GOA) in patients with knee and hip OA have been reported. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate radiographic and clinical patterns of disease in a hospital based population of patient subgroups with advanced hip and knee OA and to compare the prevalence of GOA in patients with hip or knee OA, taking potential confounding factors into account. METHODS: 420 patients with hip OA and 389 patients with knee OA scheduled for unilateral total joint replacement in four hospitals underwent radiographic analysis of ipsilateral and contralateral hip or knee joint and both hands in addition to a standardised interview and clinical examination. According to the severity of radiographic changes in the contralateral joints (using Kellgren-Lawrence > or = grade 2 as case definition) participants were classified as having either unilateral or bilateral OA. If radiographic changes of two joint groups of the hands (first carpometacarpal joint and proximal/distal interphalangeal joints defined as two separate joint groups) were present, patients were categorised as having GOA. RESULTS: Patients with hip OA were younger (mean age 60.4 years) and less likely to be female (52.4%) than patients with knee OA (66.3 years and 72.5% respectively). Intensity of pain and functional impairment at hospital admission was similar in both groups, while patients with knee OA had a longer symptom duration (median 10 years) compared with patients with hip OA (5 years). In 41.7% of patients with hip OA and 33.4% of patients with knee OA an underlying pathological condition could be observed in the replaced joint, which allowed a classification as secondary OA. Some 82.1% of patients with hip and 87.4% of patients with knee OA had radiographic changes in their contralateral joints (bilateral disease). The prevalence of GOA increased with age and was higher in female patients. GOA was observed more often in patients with knee OA than in patients with hip OA (34.9% versus 19.3%; OR = 2.24; 95% CI: 1.56, 3.21). Adjustment for the different age and sex distribution in both patient groups, however, takes away most of the difference (OR = 1.32; 95% CI: 0.89, 1.96). CONCLUSION: The crude results confirm previous reports as well as the clinical impression of GOA being more prevalent in patients with advanced knee OA than in patients with advanced hip OA. However, these different patterns might be attributed to a large part to a different distribution of age and sex in these hospital based populations.  (+info)

The pathology of bone allograft. (5/1417)

We analysed the histological findings in 1146 osteoarthritic femoral heads which would have been considered suitable for bone-bank donation to determine whether pathological lesions, other than osteoarthritis, were present. We found that 91 femoral heads (8%) showed evidence of disease. The most common conditions noted were chondrocalcinosis (63 cases), avascular necrosis (13), osteomas (6) and malignant tumours (one case of low-grade chondrosarcoma and two of well-differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma). There were two with metabolic bone disease (Paget's disease and hyperparathyroid bone disease) and four with inflammatory (rheumatoid-like) arthritis. Our findings indicate that occult pathological conditions are common and it is recommended that histological examination of this regularly used source of bone allograft should be included as part of the screening protocol for bone-bank collection.  (+info)

Apoptosis induced by nitric oxide is associated with nuclear p53 protein expression in cultured osteoarthritic synoviocytes. (6/1417)

OBJECTIVE: Nitric oxide (NO) is a free radical molecule endogenously produced by NO synthases that may play a critical role in inflammation. It inhibits cell proliferation and may be involved in the induction of apoptosis in various cellular models. Recently, the presence of apoptotic cells was reported in the synovium of osteoarthritic (OA) patients. The aim of this study was to determine whether synovial fibroblasts are target cells for NO-induced apoptosis. The expression of p53 protein was also studied to evaluate the ability of synovial cells to repair DNA fragmentation. METHODS: Synoviocytes from OA patients were treated with two NO donors: sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and S-nitroso-N-acetyl-penicillamine (SNAP). Apoptosis was analysed by transmission electron microscopy. DNA content was evaluated by flow cytometric analysis after propidium iodide staining and recognition of DNA strand break determined by the TUNEL (TdT-mediated dUTP nick end labeling) method. P53 protein expression was studied by immunofluorescence using a monoclonal antibody. RESULTS: After 6 hours, cells treated with NO donors (1.25 mM) showed a cytoplasmic condensation and vacuolization. DNA strand break analysis by the TUNEL method confirmed the presence of a DNA fragmentation after 24 hours of NO treatment. There was also a progressive decrease in the DNA diploid peak in response to NO donors. In parallel, p53 protein, constitutively expressed in cytoplasmic synovial cells, showed markedly increased expression after a 6-hour NO exposure and displayed prominent nuclear staining after 12 hours. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates the potential role of NO for the induction of synoviocyte apoptosis in OA. The increased expression of p53 in the nucleus may play a protective role in the control of apoptosis.  (+info)

Reliability of radiographic assessment in hip and knee osteoarthritis. (7/1417)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the reproducibility of commonly used radiographic measures in hip and knee OA and to overcome certain limits of existing knowledge on their reliability from previous studies. DESIGN: Three readers evaluated 100 hip joints (50 pelvic X-rays) and 100 antero-posterior and lateral knee films of a hospital-based sample of patients with radiographic OA at two time points 3 months apart. They retrospectively estimated the presence and severity of joint specific individual radiographic features (osteophyte formation and joint space narrowing at different sites, cysts, subchondral sclerosis, bony deformity and chondrocalcinosis) and two different overall scores. Within and between observer reproducibility was calculated by intra-class correlation coefficient. RESULTS: At the hip joint excellent intra- as well as inter-observer reliability for superior joint space narrowing (JSN) and femoral head deformity could be demonstrated, while the assessment of medial JSN, osteophytes and acetabular sclerosis depends on the level of the investigator's experience. At the knee joint, femorotibial and patellofemoral osteophytes showed a high intra- and inter-observer reliability. Grading of JSN is highly reader dependent; rating of subchondral sclerosis and chondrocalcinosis does not seem to be reproducible enough. The overall scores showed an excellent reproducibility both at hip and knee joints. CONCLUSION: A reliable radiographic severity grading of hip and knee OA is possible with the application of global scores and individual features, if joint specific items are selected and readers are trained enough.  (+info)

Gait analysis in coxarthrosis. (8/1417)

I report the results from gait analysis for coxarthrotic patients using a ground reaction force plate and a three-dimensional motion analysis system. Twenty-seven coxarthrotic patients, and 9 healthy females as controls, participated in this study. The waveform of the ground reaction force and the joint moment during the stance phase were evaluated. The waveform of the hip joint moment changed and flattened in both pre-coxarthrosis and early-coxarthrotic patients, compared to those in controls, indicating that coxarthrotic patients adopted a particular gait pattern to reduce the load on the affected hip joint. Beyond X-ray observations and physical examinations, joint moment analysis could achieve a more objective evaluation of the clinical stage of coxarthrosis.  (+info)

To evaluate definitions of radiographic hip osteoarthritis (RHOA) for use in longitudinal epidemiologic studies of disease incidence in women.We studied 5,839 women from the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures who had had serial pelvic radiographs obtained (mean of 8.3 years apart) and who were followed up (mean followup 7.1 years from the time of the second radiograph) for evaluation of clinical outcomes. Definitions of RHOA were assessed for construct validity (association with symptoms and signs at the time of the second radiograph) and predictive validity (association with total hip replacement [THR] and signs and symptoms a mean of 7.1 years later). Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals were calculated to assess the strength of association using logistic regression.The cumulative incidence of RHOA ranged from 2.2% to 11.7%. All definitions displayed significant construct validity; the most consistent was found for composite definitions that required the concurrent presence of 2 or more

The aim of the study was to evaluate if physical functions usually associated with a younger population were of importance for an older population, and to construct an outcome measure for hip osteoarthritis with improved responsiveness compared to the Western Ontario McMaster osteoarthritis score (WOMAC LK 3.0). A 40 item questionnaire (hip disability and osteoarthritis outcome score, HOOS) was constructed to assess patient-relevant outcomes in five separate subscales (pain, symptoms, activity of daily living, sport and recreation function and hip related quality of life). The HOOS contains all WOMAC LK 3.0 questions in unchanged form. The HOOS was distributed to 90 patients with primary hip osteoarthritis (mean age 71.5, range 49-85, 41 females) assigned for total hip replacement for osteoarthritis preoperatively and at six months follow-up. The HOOS met set criteria of validity and responsiveness. It was more responsive than WOMAC regarding the subscales pain (SRM 2.11 vs. 1.83) and other symptoms
We sought to describe the effect of alterations in hip morphology with respect to worsening hip OA in a community-based sample including African American (AA) and white men and women.This nested case-control study defined case hips as Kellgren Lawrence grade (KLG) |3 on baseline supine pelvis radiographs and KLG ≥3 or THR for OA at the 1st or 2nd follow-up visit (mean 6 and 13 years, respectively); control hips had KLG |3 at both visits, with gender/race distribution similar to cases. Hip morphology was assessed using HipMorf software (Oxford, UK). Descriptive means and standard errors were obtained from generalized estimating equation (GEE) models. Sex-stratified GEE regression models (accounting for within-person correlation), adjusted for age, race, BMI, and side were then employed.A total of 120 individuals (239 hips; 71 case/168 control) were included (25% male, 26% AA, mean age 62 years, BMI 30 kg/m(2)). Case hips tended to have greater baseline AP alpha angles, smaller minimum joint space width
The addition of therapeutic ultrasound to traditional physical therapy showed a longitudinal positive effect on pain, functional status, and physical quality of life (QoL) in patients with hip osteoarthritis, say authors of an article published in the December 2010 issue of Clinical Rheumatology. Twelve male and 33 female patients (mean age, 65.3 ± 6.7 years; mean disease duration, 2.5 ± 1.7 years) with primary hip osteoarthritis were enrolled in this study. Demographic and clinical characteristics including age, sex, duration of disease, and pain on activity and at rest using visual analogue scale (VAS) were recorded. Functional status was determined by a 15-m timed walking test and Western Ontario McMaster Osteoarthritis Questionnaire. QoL was determined by the Short Form-36 survey (SF-36). Each patient was randomly assigned to either group I (standard physical therapy including hot pack and exercise program), group II (sham ultrasound in addition to standard physical therapy), or group III ...

OBJECTIVE: Type IX collagen proteoglycan is an important protein in collagen networks and has been implicated in hip osteoarthritis (OA). We studied 2 COL9A1 markers (509-8B2 and 509-12B1) in relation to radiographic OA, within the framework of the Rotterdam Study, a population-based study of 7,983 subjects ages 55 years and older. METHODS: We used 2 different designs, as follows: 1) a linkage study of 83 probands with multiple joints affected with radiographic OA and their 221 siblings, yielding 445 sibpairs who participated in the study, and 2) an association study in a series of 71 patients with radiographic hip OA and 269 controls without radiographic OA. All subjects were characterized for the 2 COL9A1 markers, 509-8B2 and 509-12B1. The mean test was used to assess the proportion of alleles shared in concordantly affected and unaffected sibpairs. The chi-square test was used to compare the allele distributions in patients and controls. RESULTS: Affected sibpairs with radiographic hip OA shared

Results BMI was positively related to risk of knee osteoarthritis (Ptrend,0.001), with an RR of 4.37 (95% CI 3.01 to 6.33) in women and 2.78 (95% CI 1.59 to 4.84) in men, comparing obese and normal weight persons. No clear association was observed for hip osteoarthritis. Obesity increased the risk of severe activity-limiting osteoarthritis, with an RR of 2.30 (95% CI 1.68 to 3.15) and 2.50 (95% CI 1.56 to 4.03) in women and men, respectively. Physical exercise did not modify the above associations (Pinteraction,0.34). Exercise intensity was not associated with risk of osteoarthritis in any BMI category; that is, obese persons reporting high-intensity exercise had an RR of 1.28 (95% CI 0.59 to 2.79) for severe osteoarthritis compared with inactive persons. ...
Objectives: Biochemical markers reflecting the degradation of the type II collagen helical (Helix-II) and type II collagen C telopeptides (CTX-II) have been developed.. Aim: To investigate the association of rapidly destructive hip osteoarthritis with urinary Helix-II and urinary CTX-II.. Patients and methods: 12 patients (mean age 70 years) meeting the criteria for rapidly destructive hip osteoarthritis and 28 patients with slowly progressive hip osteoarthritis (mean age 63 years) defined as ,0.20 mm joint space loss/year were included in a case-control study. In each patient, urinary Helix-II and CTX-II were measured at the end of the follow-up period, with retrospective evaluation of x rays.. Results: Helix-II levels were 41% (p = 0.002) higher in the 40 patients with hip osteoarthritis than in 75 healthy controls. Increased Helix-II levels were associated with decreased minimum joint space width of the hip (r = −0.57, p = 0.001). Mean urinary Helix-II levels were 71% higher in rapidly ...

time of surgery, which was done between 1958 and 1965. The present study was designed to review the outcome of these patients into middle age. METHODS: We located and reviewed the cases of sixty patients (eighty hips), which represents a 79% rate of follow-up at forty to forty-eight years postoperatively. Nineteen patients (twenty-four hips) had undergone total hip replacement, and three (three hips) had died of unrelated causes. The remaining thirty-eight patients (fifty-three hips) were assessed by the WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index) and Oxford hip score questionnaires, physical examination, and a standing anteroposterior pelvic radiograph. The radiographs were analyzed to determine the minimum joint space width and the Kellgren and Lawrence score. Accepted indices of hip dysplasia were measured. RESULTS: With use of Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and with the end point defined as total hip replacement, the survival rates at thirty, forty, and forty-five ...
Osteoarthritis is characterized by damaged articular cartilage, cartilage lining the hip joint. Hip arthritis is treated by Dr Laura Matsen Ko in Seattle, Bellevue, and Tacoma, WA.
Hip pain is common in the general population, and can have many causes. One frequently seen cause is osteoarthritis, or degenerative wearing of the cartilage in joints, which in particular can affect weight-bearing joints, such as the hip. The discomfort may start as a mild ache and progress over time, often felt in the groin or deep inside the hip, and at times in the buttocks. Pain from osteoarthritis most commonly starts in our 50s and beyond, but can occur sooner in life, in particular if a person has had traumas to the hip, or has engaged in heavy labor long-term, or participated in sports that expose the hip to extreme forces. The pain may over time extend down the thigh, or may be felt mostly in the knee and progress to be present even at rest. It may become painful to walk for long distances, which often increases if walking up and down hills and stairs, and a limp may gradually develop. Hip movements start to become painful, in particular if putting the hip on full stretch in different ...
Hip osteoarthritis dogs presented significant (p, 0,05)higher serum levels of Ca/P and PICP, and Dpd and Crea in urine. Levels of total calciuria were the minor registered.. CONCLUSION. Dogs with spondylosis and vertebral sclerosis had significant lower levels of phosphatemia and high levels of serum Ca/P ratio. The serum Ca/P ratio was direct and significantly related to hip lesions. Regarding to the mineral changes, they could reflect some skeletal degenerations in older dogs as well as bone turnover markers in hip osteoarthritis dogs. Dogs with hip lesions presented high levels of serum BGP and PICP maybe due to the higher bone metabolic rate despite serum PICP is not validated for dogs and future studies are need to confirm our results.. In our study, as well as the excretion of deoxypyridinoline is increased in human patients, urine Dpd are higher in hip osteoarthritis dogs. Considering levels of bone markers in geriatric dogs, it could be demonstrated an uncoupled turnover in favor of ...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease progressively affecting joint cartilage and subchondral bone, leading to pain, limited range of motion and functional impairment. Knee and hip are the more frequently affected joints. There is no treatment able to cure OA or at least to slow down cartilage damage. Thus, when symptomatic treatments become ineffective, joint prosthetic replacement is the unique solution.. There is a substantial lack of information about osteoarthritis (OA) epidemiology in France, as well as in other European countries, which becomes more and more critical with population aging. The need for additional knowledge was outlined in the law about public health priorities in France, published on August 9th, 2004. In this document, a specific call is made for additional investigation on functional limitations, disability and quality of life modification of people affected by OA.. Up to now, available information is mainly limited to short- or medium-term studies, conducted in ...

BACKGROUND: Total joint replacements for end-stage osteoarthritis of the hip and knee are cost-effective and demonstrate significant clinical improvement. However, robust population based lifetime-risk data for implant revision are not available to aid patient decision making, which is a particular problem in young patient groups deciding on best-timing for surgery.. METHODS: We did implant survival analysis on all patients within the Clinical Practice Research Datalink who had undergone total hip replacement or total knee replacement. These data were adjusted for all-cause mortality with data from the Office for National Statistics and used to generate lifetime risks of revision surgery based on increasing age at the time of primary surgery.. FINDINGS: We identified 63 158 patients who had undergone total hip replacement and 54 276 who had total knee replacement between Jan 1, 1991, and Aug 10, 2011, and followed up these patients to a maximum of 20 years. For total hip replacement, 10-year ...

Twelve of 14 studies showed a significant association with an OR range of 1.97 to 8.5 or relative risk range (RR) of 1.5 to 12.4. Four studies were considered to be of the highest quality.15 16 18 25. In the case-control study by Vingaard et al25 233 men receiving the first THR were compared with 322 controls randomly selected from the study population. The workload was assessed by interview. Men with high exposure to heavy lifting, age 30-49 years, had a high risk of hipOA (RR 3.31, 95% CI 1.97 to 5.57) (results adjusted for age, BMI, smoking and sports activities). The strengths of the study were the specified exposure, the high number of participants, high participation rate, the description of the study and the analysis. Exposure was divided into three groups. Unexposed and the 5% lowest exposed were defined as low exposure, and medium and high exposure were divided into two equally large groups. This may lead to a risk of misclassification, and to a dilution of the results. 335 men, treated ...
KingMark, developed by UHCW orthopaedic surgeon Mr Richard King in collaboration with Professor Damian Griffin at the Universitys Warwick Medical School, provides a non-intrusive, reliable method of calculating radiographic hip magnification. Over 55,000 hip replacement operations are undertaken each year in the UK alone, with current estimation of replacement hip size only being correct in around 30% of cases. The invention includes a simple kit for measurement and comprises a pad with an incorporated measurement system which is placed face down; the patient lies with their hips on the pad; a string of five linked precision balls are placed on the patients abdomen. The anterior (ball) and posterior measurements from the radiograph are entered and calculated and an accurate value for magnification is then generated. Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery at Warwick Medical School, Professor Damian Griffin said: KingMark has removed all of the uncertainty about scaling digital radiographs ...

Non-responders were identified in three different ways. The first definition identified non-responders as the patients who scored worst (lowest quartile) in WOMAC function at the 3.6 year follow up. The second definition identified the patients with an absolute change of ,20 score units on a 0-100 scale. The reason for the choice of an absolute change of 20 score units is the knowledge that in clinical trials of rehabilitation intervention and medical treatment the smallest detectable clinical improvement in WOMAC function and pain is 9-12 score units.20,31 Knowing that the responsiveness of medical treatment in OA is about half as high (standardised response mean 0.5-0.8) as for causal surgical treatment (standardised response mean 0.8-3.1),32-34 we decided to double the smallest detectable clinical improvement for medical treatment. This cut off point also concurs with the OARSI definition of high improvement in function.19. The third definition was an attempt to use an established definition ...

According to Yves E. Henrotin, lead author of a study published in the August 2006 issue of the Journal of Rheumatology, ASU promotes cartilage repair by acting on osteoblasts, specialized cells involved in bone mineralization. An analysis of previous trials published in the April 16, 2008, issue of Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, reported that of the 664 people included, those treated with avocado and soybean oil unsaponifiable compounds for six months experienced significantly more relief from pain and inflammation than those given a placebo. But the researchers noted that patients with osteoarthritis of the knee fared better than those with hip osteoarthritis.. ...

Few data are available concerning structural changes at the hip observed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in people with or without hip osteoarthritis (OA). The aim of this study was to compare cartilage volume and the presence of cartilage defects and bone marrow lesions (BMLs) in participants with and without diagnosed hip OA. Femoral head cartilage volume was measured by MRI for 141 community-based persons with no diagnosed hip OA, and 19 with diagnosed hip OA. Cartilage defects and BMLs were regionally scored at the femoral head and acetabulum. Compared with those without diagnosed hip OA, people with diagnosed hip OA had less femoral head cartilage volume (1763 mm3 versus 3343 mm3; p |0.001) and more prevalent cartilage defects and BMLs (all p ≤0.05) at all sites other than the central inferomedial region of the femoral head. In those with no diagnosed hip OA, cartilage defects in the anterior and central superolateral region of the femoral head were associated with reduced femoral head
OBJECTIVE: Hip pain and injury as a result of activity can lead to the development of early hip osteoarthritis (OA) in susceptible individuals. Our understanding of the factors that increase susceptibility continues to evolve. The ability to clearly identify individuals (and cohorts) with activity-related hip pain who are at risk of early hip OA is currently lacking. The purpose of this study was to gain expert consensus on which key clinical measures might help predict the risk of early hip OA in individuals presenting with activity-related hip pain. The agreed measures would constitute a standardised approach to initial clinical assessment to help identify these individuals. METHODS: This Dephi study used online surveys to gain concordance of expert opinion in a structured process of rounds. In this study, we asked What outcome measures are useful in predicting hip OA in activity-related hip pain? The Delphi panel consisted of experts from sport and exercise medicine, orthopaedics, rheumatology,

Background/Purpose : Tanezumab (TNZ), a monoclonal antibody that inhibits nerve growth factor, reduces hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA) pain. A non-controlled, randomized, double-blind study of TNZ 2.5, 5, and 10 mg administered by subcutaneous (SC) injection at 8-week intervals was conducted in patients with hip or knee OA. Methods: Patients (N=678) with moderate to severe knee or hip OA were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio and treated with TNZ 2.5 mg (n=230), 5 mg (n=222), or 10 mg (n=226) every 8 weeks. Efficacy analyses included change from baseline in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Pain and Physical Function subscales, Patients Global Assessment of OA (PGAO), and percentage of patients with ≥30%, ≥50%, ≥70%, and ≥90% improvement in WOMAC Pain. Safety assessments included adverse event (AE) documentation, physical and neurological examinations, and laboratory tests.. Results: The study discontinued prematurely due to a FDA partial clinical hold on ...

If youre experiencing pain in your hip due to an injury or arthritis, you understand the affect that it has on your everyday life. When arthritis or injuries are severe, many times your only option is to have a hip joint replacement.. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint and is one of the largest joints in the body. Its made up of the acetabulum which is the part of the pelvis bone that forms the socket and the femoral head which is the upper end of the femur that forms the ball.. The surfaces of the ball and socket are coated with articular cartilage that provides cushioning for the joint as it moves. The synovial membrane, the tissue that surrounds the hip, creates fluid that lubricates the cartilage to reduce friction during movement. In a damaged hip, the articular cartilage becomes worn down so that the ends of the bones rub against each other without any form of cushioning. This causes a great deal of pain for the patient.. Its important to contact your doctor to find out if youre a ...

Last months issue of Arthritis and Rheumatology published a study (Hip Osteoarthritis and the Risk of All-Cause and Disease-Specific Mortality in Older Women: A Population-Based Cohort Study) showing just how big a deal hip arthritis really is. The study followed nearly 10,000 over-65 women from the late 1980s. After factoring out confounders like OBESITY, SMOKING, DIABETES, and several others, they calculated that physical inactivity related to hip arthritis helped explain 43% of all deaths, when compared to women without hip arthritis. Furthermore, drugs (chiefly NSAIDS) had no affect on limiting mortality rates. In the abstract, the authors concluded that, Dissemination of evidence-based physical activity and self-management interventions for hip OA in community and clinical settings can improve physical function and might also contribute to lower mortality. ...

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes joints to become painful and stiff. Hip osteoarthritis can be treated with hip replacement surgery, where the damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial implant. The surgeon has various choices as to which implant they use. The implant that surgeons routinely use comes in two different lengths: the original (150mm) length or the short (125mm) length. It is not known whether patient outcomes differ based on the length of the implant used. The aim of this study is to find out whether the length of the hip replacement stem has any influence on pain and physical function after total hip replacement ...
Hip joint complaints are a problem associated with increasing age and impair the mobility of a large section of the elderly population. Reliable and valid tests are necessary for a thorough investigation of a joint. A fundamental function of the hip joint is movement control and a test of this function forms a part of the standard examination. Until now there have been few scientific studies which specifically investigate the reliability of measurement tests of movement control of the hip joint. The aim of this study was to examine the intratester and intertester reliability of the movement control tests of the hip joint which are in use in current clinical practice. Sixteen participants with hip joint complaints and 14 without hip joint impairment were recruited. All participants performed five active movement control tests for the hip joint and were video filmed whilst performing these tests. These films formed the basis for the evaluation and were assessed by two independent physiotherapists. For the
BACKGROUND: Symptomatic knee problems in elderly people are considerably more common than hip problems, yet far more hips are replaced. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether systematic differences occur in early primary care management of elderly patients who first consult with hip versus knee symptoms. METHODS: A prospective analysis was carried out of anonymized records in the MediPlus general practice database. This was a 3 year (1996-1998) prospective study of 310,843 patients aged 65+ regarding consultations about a new hip or knee problem. Survival analysis techniques were used to analyse time to and frequency of various interventions. RESULTS: A total of 1410 new hip and 3152 new knee consulters were identified. Baseline characteristics of the two groups were very similar. By 3 years following the first consultation, more of the hip cases had referral to a specialist (38.2% hips versus 31.5% knees, P |0.001) and joint replacement (9.6% hips versus 1.8% knees, P |0.001)
You can check out the full article HERE.. The main takeaways are:. 1. If you have hip osteoarthritis (aka degenerative joint disease) you may benefit from a structured exercise program.. 2. The program in this study lasted for 12 weeks.. 3. This program consisted of 1 class per week (in a group therapy setting) and 2 independently done sessions (at home).. 4. The structured class lasted 60 to 90 minutes per session.. 5. The home exercise sessions were 30 to 40 minutes each.. I did a google search to find the specific protocol but had no luck. However, based on the desired outcomes (listed above) I believe a qualified outpatient orthopedic Physical Therapist should be able to put together a program that is similarly effective.. In my experience, working with well over 1000 hip arthritis patients in programs that included physical therapy exerices, 60 minutes might be a bit too much to start with. The people who come to my physical therapy office who have hip arthritis are usually between 55 and ...

Hip arthritis is a progressive disorder. It slowly erodes and destroys cartilage that lines your hip joint. As this happens, the hip joint loses its flexibility. Over time, significant damage to the cartilage may occur, causing pain and restricting movement. Joint stiffness is often an early symptom of osteoarthritis, according to the Mayo Clinic. If you have hip arthritis, you may feel this stiffness in your groin, buttocks, or thighs. Hip stiffness is often more acute in the morning or after a long period of sitting. It usually improves after hip movement or mild exercise. However, exercise may also cause pain. ...
Objectives. To determine changes in the metabolic profile of elderly white patients with treated hypertension and the effect of withdrawal of prolonged thiazide therapy. Design. Fifty-eight patients (mean age 66.4 � 1.4 years; 12 men, 46 women) treated with antihypertensive agents (including low-dose thiazides) underwent a standard 75 g oral glucose challenge with documentation of serial glucose, fasting insulin and lipid levels. In a subgroup (N = 14), low-dose thiazides were discontinued and the investigations were repeated 10 months later. Results. Twenty-four patients had normal glucose tolerance (NG) and 34 had abnormal glucose tolerance (AG). Of the latter, 9 had unsuspected diabetes mellitus. Total fasting cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations, diastolic blood pressure and recorded duration of hypertension were greater in AG than NG subjects. There was no evidence of more severe target organ damage (ECG or serum creatinine level) in AG than NG subjects. Following withdrawal of low-dose
