Difficult to treat osteoarticulars infections  : Focus on Mycobacterial and Fungal infection.

Difficult to treat osteoarticulars infections : Focus on Mycobacterial and Fungal infection. Acta Orthop Belg. 2017 Mar;83(1):110-123 Authors: Yombi JC, Seyler L, Cornu O, Barbier O, Libouton X, Rodriguez-Villalobos H, Thienpont E Abstract Bone and joint infections are rare but often devastating. While bacteria are most commonly encountered organisms, mycobacteria and fungi are less frequent. Management of the latter is often more complex, especially in the presence of foreign material. We will increasingly be faced with mycobacterial and fungal bone infections, as medical conditions and newer therapeutics lead to more immunosuppression. In this article, we will review osteomyelitis, septic arthritis and peri-prosthetic joint infections related to mycobacteria and fungi. PMID: 29322903 [PubMed - in process]

Wong, Anthony Bui, Yuya Fujita, Gilson Gonçalves dos Santos, Tony L. Yaksh, Maripat CorrAbstractIn rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain can persist despite resolution of swelling. Similarly, in the murine K/BxN serum transfer model, a persistent tactile allodynia is observed after the resolution of joint inflammation (post-inflammatory pain) in male mice. Here, we found female wild type (WT) mice show inflammatory, but reduced post-inflammatory tactile allodynia. The transition...

A double whammy here is that chronic stress is a problem for most caregivers and stress can be a trigger for many people who live with chronic migraines. It is for me. The fact is that whether caregivers have migraines, severe arthritis, asthma, or any other ailment if they are still functioning better than the person or people for whom they care, they carry on. It’s what we do.

Conclusions: There is moderate-quality evidence that, compared with usual care, a structured education and neuromuscular exercise program improves physical function, quality of life, and the ability to perform activities of daily living. There is low-quality evidence that, compared with usual care, this type of program improves pain. Low-quality evidence suggests that, compared with patient education, a structured education and neuromuscular exercise program improves pain and physical function.A group-based structured education and neuromuscular exercise program may be cost-effective for the nonsurgical management of knee ...

AbstractAimDiscrepancies exist between international treatment guidelines and current Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) criteria for funding biologic disease ‐modifying antirheumatic drug (bDMARD) prescribing in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). We aimed to determine the prevalence of minimal disease activity (MDA) achievement and differences in inflammatory marker levels between PsA patients who have and have not met the Australian PBS criteria for bDMARDs.MethodConsecutive participants diagnosed with PsA were assessed for MDA components and serum inflammatory markers. For those on bDMARDs, joint counts and infla...

AbstractObjectivesTo study clinical and patient reported outcomes for the Virtual Monitoring Clinic (VMC), a remote nurse ‐led telemonitoring service for monitoring Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients treated with disease‐modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).MethodsPatients with stable RA enrolled in the VMC were followed up prospectively. The primary outcomes evaluated at 1 ‐year follow‐up were: Disease Activity Score‐28 (DAS28), Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID3), and patient satisfaction assessed using an 11‐point Likert scale.ResultsOf the 251 patients enrolled, 186 completed 1 ‐year of ...
