ConclusionsThis study provides new options for assessing the CM diagnosis, which may improve RA treatment strategies. Identification of joint non-related symptoms and pathogenic external factors such as algor/“cold” may help understanding activation of specific immunological mechanisms, changes of capillary endothelium and the microcirculation disturbances. Overactivation of the functional defence mechanisms by algor/“cold” seem to be of utmost importance for RA symptoms.

This study aims to evaluate whether targeted simulation model training in residency can increase residents' comfort level in performing intra-articular knee injections and decrease the pain of the procedure, as reported by patients injected. Residents were randomized into intervention and control groups. The comfort level of the residents as well as the pain levels from the procedures, as reported by patients, was recorded. The mean comfort level for the intervention group was 1.2, compared with that in the control group, which was 2.13; P value was .047. The mean pain level in the intervention group was 1.8, whereas in th...

For people considering hip or knee replacement surgery, it’s something they want — and need — to know. In the US alone, surgeons perform more than 600,000 knee replacements and about 330,000 hip replacements each year. These operations can provide a major improvement in quality of life and function for those with severe arthritis. On the other hand, there are risks associated with the operation (as is true for any major surgery), there is a long road to recovery even when all goes well, and these operations aren’t cheap. For knee replacement surgery alone, an estimated $9 billion or more is spent ea...

Authors: Liu CS, Liu FZ, Wang XY, Yao Y, Qiao L, Fu J, Wang D Abstract OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical effect of total hip arthroplasty (THA) and hip arthrodesis (HA) in treating coxotuberculosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 40 patients with coxotuberculosis treated in the Orthopedic Department in our hospital from February 2011 to February 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Comparison of total curative effect between THA and HA in treating coxotuberculosis was analyzed. The operation time, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative drainage volume, visual analogue scale (VAS) scor...

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) remains the primary treatment intervention for end stage hip osteoarthritis, and while it has been established that it is generally successful at reducing pain and restoring function, it is known that some abnormalities in hip joint biomechanics can remain post-operatively. Sit to stand (Sit-Stand) is an important functional activity and previous studies have shown that in patients with hip arthritis, this task can become difficult for a number of reasons, including restricted range of movement, and can lead to patients offloading their affected limb [1].
