ConclusionsFormer elite cricketers reported more hand pain than rugby players. No significant association was found between self-reported severe injury and hand osteoarthritis in either cohort, potentially indicating that risk factors aside from injury may be more prominent in the development of hand osteoarthritis.
CONCLUSION: ICOAP-hand is a reliable pain index that correlates with other available pain questionnaires. However, our results indicate that constant and intermittent pain do not represent separate constructs in hand OA, questioning the usefulness of the 2 subscales. [ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT03083548].

CONCLUSION: Suboptimal use of recommended COS and heterogeneity of outcome measures is reducing quality and comparability of OA trials and hinders conclusions about efficacy and comparative efficacy of non-surgical interventions. Interventions for improving study design of trials in this field would be beneficial. PMID: 30877204 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionOsteoarthritis has significant association with multimorbidity, which increases medicines intake and health care utilization. Comorbidities in OA should be considered for designing integrated care approach.
To analyze the age-related changes of the physiological hand joint architecture.
The aim of the study was to examine how mechanical unloading affects articular cartilage degeneration in the patellofemoral (PF) and tibiofemoral (TF) joints of a monosodium iodoacetate (MIA)-induced rat model of osteoarthritis (OA).
The objective of this study was to determine whether CS is effective at alleviating pain and improving function in patients with knee OA and to identify the factors that explain inconsistencies in clinical trial results.MethodsWe conducted a systematic review of randomized, placebo-controlled trials, searching the databases Medline, Cochrane central register for controlled trials and Scopus. Random effects meta-analysis was then performed, using tau2 andI2 statistics to assess heterogeneity. The pain and Lequesne index (LI) scores were expressed as standardized mean differences (SMDs), with a 95% confidence interval (CI). ...
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of hand and wrist osteoarthritis in former elite cricket and rugby union players, by sport and playing position, and to define the prevalence of severe hand injury, and its association with hand osteoarthritis.
