AbstractPurposeTo describe a surgical technique in correcting valgus deformity during total knee replacement and evaluate medium-term clinical outcomes.MethodsThis was a retrospective consecutive series of total knee replacement for severe valgus deformity of patients who underwent a lateral ligament complex release with a sliver osteotomy of the lateral femoral condyle with a minimum 1-year follow-up and recording objective and patient-reported outcome measures.ResultsTwenty-three patients (25 knees) were included with median follow-up of 5  years (range 1–15 years) and average age 67.7 years (range 4...

Abstract The long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are the crucial regulators of human chronic diseases. Therefore, approaches such as antisense oligonucleotides, RNAi technology, and small molecule inhibitors have been used for the therapeutic targeting of lncRNAs. During the last decade, phytochemicals and nutraceuticals have been explored for their potential against lncRNAs. The common lncRNAs known to be modulated by phytochemicals include ROR, PVT1, HOTAIR, MALAT1, H19, MEG3, PCAT29, PANDAR, NEAT1, and GAS5. The phytochemicals such as curcumin, resveratrol, sulforaphane, berberine, EGCG, and gambogic acid have been ...

(Reuters Health)—Patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) can add hip-strengthening exercises to their workout to improve the ability to walk and maybe reduce pain, according to a research review. Based on pooled data from eight clinical trials with a total of 340 patients, hip strengthening exercises involving weights or elastic bands would help the most, the... [Read More]

We report that in human primary articular chondrocytes, erythromycin, a well-known macrolide antibiotic, had the ability to inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokine Interleukin 1β (IL-1β)-induced catabolic gene expression and nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) activation. Furthermore, erythromycin inhibited monosodium iodoacetate (MIA)-induced joint inflammation and cartilage matrix destruction in mice, an arthritis model that reflects the inflammatory and cartilage matrix loss aspects of OA. EM900, an erythromycin-derivative lacking antibiotic function, had the same activity as...

CONCLUSIONS The arthritic process affecting the knee joint results in altered kinematics and biomechanics of the affected knee joint. This is manifested at both the axial and sagittal plane, when the kinematics fails to equal that of the healthy joint. The implantation of the medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty improves the kinematics of the knee joint and helps achieve the requested values and stabilises the knee joint. Key words:medial gonarthrosis, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, knee joint kinematics. PMID: 30843511 [PubMed - in process]
