Publication date: Available online 17 August 2018Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical RheumatologyAuthor(s): Ejaz M.I. Pathan, Robert D. InmanAbstractPain in spondyloarthritis is usually attributed to inflammation. However, treatment with potent biologic agents that control inflammation does not always control the pain. Pain is hence likely to be multifactorial. Fatigue is another prominent feature of this condition which again tends to respond poorly to potent biologic agents. There is also a growing interest in coexisting fibromyalgia in this group of patients and how this affects response to biologic therapies. ...

This study included randomized controlled trials reporting the efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave therapy in treating lower-limb tendinopathy. The included randomized controlled trials were subjected to a meta-analysis and risk of bias assessment. Results In total, 29 randomized controlled trials were included, all of which had a good methodological quality, with a PEDro score of ≥6/10. General extracorporeal shock wave therapy showed significant effects at the immediate follow-up [pain score: standardized mean difference = −1.41, 95% confidence interval = −2.01 to −0.82, P

Objective Knee osteoarthritis (OA) has a significant impact on quality of life (QOL). Although QOL is generally thought to diminish over time, it is unknown whether different patient groups demonstrate unique patterns of change in QOL. We sought to identify and characterize QOL trajectories in knee OA. Design This prospective cohort study included 1013 individuals with symptomatic knee OA from the osteoarthritis initiative. We used group-based trajectory modeling to identify distinct temporal patterns of change in the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score QOL subscale for 8 yrs. Baseline covariates included age...

ConclusionSclerosis can occur in endplates with any type of MCs. However, the clinical and animal study suggests that sclerosis is greatest in endplates showing type III MCs.The translational potential of this articleThe study showed that sclerosis can occur in endplates with MCs type I, II and III. In patients with endplate sclerosis on plain radiographs or CT scans, the endplate can still represent an inflammatory process associated with chronic lower back pain.

Conclusions: Eye pain may be associated with a number of different causes, some benign and others sight- or life-threatening. Because patients with eye pain may present to either a neurology or an ophthalmology clinic and because the causes of eye pain may be primarily ophthalmic or neurologic, the diagnosis and management of these patients often requires collaboration and consultation between the 2 specialties.
