LascellesAbstractOsteoarthritis (OA) is a debilitating disease in dogs. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used to treat OA; however, many dogs do not obtain adequate pain relief with an NSAID alone. This pilot study evaluated the systemic anti-inflammatory and mobility enhancing effects of an eggshell membrane-based nutritional supplement in dogs with OA-associated pain and mobility impairment. Twenty-seven dogs with OA-associated pain were enrolled int...

The objective of this study was to look for compensatory foot and ankle behaviours during gait in paediatric patients with symptomatic ACL deficiency.HypothesisCompensation for ACL deficiency during gait occurs at the foot and ankle in children, because compensation at the hip and pelvis would require greater energy expenditure.Material and methodsWe included 47 patients, 33 males and 14 females, ranging in age from 9 to 17 years (mean, 14.1 years). The patients had a history of unilateral ACL injury documented by MRI and initially treated by immobilisation and physical therapy. They were allowed to walk with full weight-b...

Publication date: Available online 14 September 2019Source: Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology (English Edition)Author(s): Babita Ghai, Vasudha Gupta, Ashish Jain, Nitika Goel, Devender Chouhan, Yatinder Kumar BatraAbstractBackgroundIntra-articular injections of platelet-rich plasma to treat symptoms of knee osteoarthritis have been successfully used in young patients. However in most of these studies the control and test knees were present in different patients thus incorporating a large amount of bias in the results. Therefore, the present study was designed in which patients with bilateral osteoarthritis knee were incl...

CONCLUSION: In the eccentric GHOA, increasing retroversion is associated with increasing volume of the posterior cuff relative to the anterior cuff muscles, which is a reversal of the asymmetric increasing volume of the anterior cuff relative to the posterior cuff muscles seen with concentric GHOA. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Diagnostic, level III. PMID: 31517880 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Deleterious impact loading to cartilage initiates post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA). While cytokine and enzyme levels regulate disease progression, specific mechanical cues that elucidate cellular OA origins merit further investigation. We defined the dominant pericellular and cellular strain/stress transfer mechanisms following bulk-tissue injury associated with cell death.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewReview the effectiveness and safety of current treatment protocols for fluoroscopically guided genicular nerve radiofrequency ablation (RFA) used for recalcitrant knee pain secondary to osteoarthritis (OA).Recent FindingsRandomized controlled trials and cohort studies of fluoroscopically guided RFA of the genicular nerves demonstrate variability in responder rates from 59% at 3  months to as high as 74% at 6 month follow-up. Studies that investigated the prognostic value of genicular nerve blocks to select patients for RFA demonstrate no difference in outcomes with current treatment proto...
