Non-pharmacological treatment gap preceding surgical consultation in thumb carpometacarpal osteoarthritis - a cross-sectional study

Osteoarthritis (OA) in the thumb carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) is a prevalent disease which may lead to structural damage, severe pain and functional limitations. Evidence-based treatment recommendations state ...

Conclusions: According to these characteristics, tapentadol appears suitable in the treatment of chronic pain conditions characterized by both a nociceptive and a neuropathic component, such as osteoarthritis or back pain. PMID: 31822137 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionBoth OPEN and ARTHRO improved ROM and clinical scores. The Bayesian method indicated that although OPEN increased the flexion and flexion-extension arc more than ARTHRO, ARTHRO resulted in a relatively consistent surgical outcome. Additionally, OPEN caused relatively higher complication and re-operation rates than ARTHRO.

Publication date: Available online 10 December 2019Source: The Egyptian RheumatologistAuthor(s): Amany R. El-Najjar, Shimaa M. Abdelwhab, ahmad A. elsammakAbstractBackgroundPain in osteoarthritis (OA) primarily results from tissue damage but its' intensity does not essentially parallel the extent of joint destruction or presence of active inflammation, thus suggesting the likely involvement of a central component. The mid-anterior cingulate cortex (mACC) has an important role in pain perception, intensity and progression. In OA, low mACC γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) was associated with high pain suggesting a role of pr...

The objective of this study was to examine the day-to-day associations between partner support, pain catastrophizing and pain intensity in individuals with end-stage knee osteoarthritis. In this microlongitudinal cohort study, participants (N  = 124) with end-stage knee osteoarthritis completed baseline measures of trait pain catastrophizing and negative affect. Participants also provided daily diary assessments of partner support, pain catastrophizing and pain intensity for a period of 7 days using a personal digital assistant. Mul tilevel analyses revealed that day-to-day fluctuations in pain catastrop...
