ConclusionArthroscopic stabilization of acute acromio-clavicular joint dislocation using a TightRope device is a minimally invasive procedure with decreased post-operative morbidity. It allows early rehabilitation and consistently provides a satisfactory outcome when performed in the acute phase of injury.
Joints in the human body may be able to feel pain even when arthritis isn't present in the area, new research shows.
All medications come with a dose of risk. From minor side effects to life-threatening allergic reactions, every decision to take a medication should be made only after the expected benefits are weighed against the known risks.

Now, according to a new study, the common prescription pain medication tramadol ma...
Conclusions For malunited PIP joint fracture without severe cartilage damage, intra-articular osteotomy provides predictable functional recovery and minimal donor site sacrifice.
Conclusion: We demonstrated the involvement of a sensory neuron-macrophage axis in GA pathology that was regulated by sFRP2 expression in a paracrine manner. Targeting increased sFRP2 expressions in DRG provide novel insights for future GA research in both pain alleviation and treatment of gout inflammation.
(Karolinska Institutet) Antibodies that exist in the joints before the onset of rheumatoid arthritis can cause pain even in the absence of arthritis, researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden report. The researchers believe that the finding, which is published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, can represent a general mechanism in autoimmunity and that the results can facilitate the development of new ways of reducing non-inflammatory pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.

This study examined whether order of surgery (TKA or THA first) affects length of stay (LOS) and discharge disposition among patients with coexisting knee and hip arthritis. A total joint arthroplasty database review was performed to collect all available data for arthroplasties performed at 2 campuses of a single institution between July 2013 and April 2017. Inclusion criteria were patients who underwent both primary THA and TKA within 18 months and were age 18 years or older. Patients were divided into 2 groups based on whether THA or TKA was performed first. For all procedures, the following data were collected: age, bo...
