Does Postoperative Glenoid Retroversion Affect the 2-Year Clinical and Radiographic Outcomes for Total Shoulder Arthroplasty?

CONCLUSION: In this small series of TSAs, postoperative glenoid retroversion was not associated with inferior clinical results at 2 years after surgery. This suggests that it may be possible to effectively manage arthritic glenohumeral joints without specific attempts to modify glenoid version. Larger, longer-term studies will be necessary to further explore the results of this approach. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III, therapeutic study. PMID: 28681354 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIn these nationally representative US adults, four modifiable risk factors (BMI, the DASH diet, alcohol use, and diuretic use) could individually account for a notable proportion of hyperuricemia cases. However, the corresponding serum urate variance explained by these risk factors was very small and paradoxically masked their high prevalences, providing real ‐life empirical evidence for its limitations in assessing common risk factors.This article is protected by copyright.

Conclusion: Natural recovery after TBI may include delayed onset of functional decline or early recovery, followed by progressive deterioration, and is negatively affected by medical comorbidities. Results contribute to the growing evidence that TBI is most appropriately treated as a chronic medical condition complicated by a variety of comorbid conditions.

ErshowAbstractGout, the most common type of inflammatory arthritis and associated with elevated uric acid levels, is a global burden. “Western” dietary habits and lifestyle, and the resulting obesity epidemic, are often blamed for the increased prevalence of gout. Purine intake has shown the biggest dietary impact on uric acid. To manage this situation, data on the purine content of foods are needed. To assess availability and q...

This study aimed to explore the epidemiology, presentation, management, and health-care impact of DGI in the Top End of the Northern Territory. Health records of patients diagnosed with proven, probable, or possible DGI between January 2010 and September 2018 were analyzed retrospectively. One hundred six cases of DGI were identified. Ninety-four patients (88.7%) were Indigenous Australian. The incidence of proven and probable DGI in the Indigenous population was 27.1 per 100,000 person-years, compared with 7.1 in the Top End population overall. Of 7,540 laboratory-proven gonococcal notifications, 1.3% (n = 97) were compli...

In conclusion, with study of the frailty syndrome still in its infancy, frailty analysis remains a major challenge. It is a challenge that needs to be overcome in order to shed light on the multiple mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of this syndrome. Although several mechanisms contribute to frailty, immune system alteration seems to play a central role: this syndrome is characterized by increased levels of pro-inflammatory markers and the resulting pro-inflammatory status can have negative effects on various organs. Future studies should aim to better clarify the immune system alteration in frailty, and seek to esta...

Drinking a moderate amount of alcohol is generally safe for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and it may even offer some benefits. However, alcohol can interfere with some RA medications, and heavy drinking can lead to health problems. We take a look at the research and official guidelines here.

ABSTRACTDiabetes mellitus among older men has been associated with increased bone mineral density, but paradoxically increased fracture risk. Given the interactions among medication treatment, glycemic control, and diabetes ‐associated comorbidities, the relative effects of each factor remains unclear. This retrospective study includes 652,901 male Veterans age ≥65 years with diabetes and baseline hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) value. All subjects received primary care in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) from 2000 to 2010. Administrative data included ICD9 diagnoses and pharmacy records, and was linked to Medicare fee...
