Magnetic resonance imaging following cartilage repair of focal chondral lesions.

[Magnetic resonance imaging following cartilage repair of focal chondral lesions]. Radiologe. 2019 Jun 05;: Authors: Wuennemann F, Kintzelé L, Klaan B, Weber MA, Kauczor HU, Rehnitz C Abstract BACKGROUND: Focal cartilage lesions are common pathologies of weight-bearing joints. Clinical presentation ranges from asymptomatic patients to severe, pain-related movement deficits. Moreover, focal chondral lesions are risk factors for the development of osteoarthritis. There are various treatment options involving both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Musculoskeletal radiologists should be aware of the various surgical options as well as the postsurgical imaging characteristics to depict whether the encountered imaging findings reflect the normal postoperative course or are indicative of a treatment failure. OBJECTIVES: We aim to describe the most common surgical procedures for the repair of focal cartilage lesions and their typical postsurgical appearance on MRI studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The literature in PubMed was searched with the terms "focal articular cartilage lesions", "chondral lesions", "MOCART", "Microfracture", "Osteochondral Autograft Transfer", "mosaicplasty", "Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation", "OATS", "OCT", "Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation", "ACI", "Matrix-Assisted Chondrocyte Implantation&...

Discussion The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) “is an intra-articular but extrasynovial collagenous structure with limited healing capacity that originates in the posteromedial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle and crosses into anteromedially to insert anterior into the intercondylar eminence of tibial articular surface.” It plays an important part as a mechanoreceptor particularly as a proprioceptor. Its main role is to prevent excessive anterior tibial translation, limits varus/valgus stress when the knee is in full extension and some rotary movements of the knee. There are ~120,000 surgeries per year m...

The device delivers a mild level of current via electrodes positioned on the skin to interfere with the pain signal and stimulate the release of the body’s own natural painkiller to reduce the pain. This paper presents the materials and fabrication methods used to manufacture a textile based wearable electronic textile (e-textile) with electrodes embedded ...

Conclusions: Symptomatic hip and knee osteoarthritis are risk factors for falls and related fractures among the elderly population with and without Parkinson's disease. The inability to walk 500 m could be used as a simple predictive factor for the increased risk of falls among elderly populations. PMID: 31700249 [PubMed]

Genicular nerve block and subsequent radiofrequency neurotomy (RFN) has emerged as a novel intervention and alternative for total knee arthroplasty in patients with refractory pain from knee osteoarthritis (OA). To our knowledge, there is no cited report correlating the accuracy of localizing the genicular nerves using bony landmarks on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Conclusions: Our results show that psychological factors are more strongly related to pain levels prior to non-invasive treatment in patients with osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint than patient characteristics and X-ray scores, which implies the important role of these factors in the reporting of symptoms. More research is needed to determine whether psychological factors will also affect treatment outcomes for patients treated non-invasively for osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONPain is the most important complaint for patients with osteoarthritis of the first...

ConclusionPredictors for knee arthroplasty were being female, having a higher BMI and a higher WOMAC total sum score. Predictors for hip arthroplasty being male, having a higher age and a higher WOMAC total sum score. The incidence of arthroplasty was 5.1% (10.2 years) for the knee and 10.2% (9.7 years) for the hip.

AbstractMusculoskeletal disorders remain a major problem in hemodialysis patients. The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of musculoskeletal manifestations in hemodialysis patients and identify disease cluster profiles. We performed a cross-sectional study including all adult patients in the hemodialysis unit at Hotel-Dieu de France Hospital. We collected demographic characteristics, musculoskeletal symptoms, biologic parameters, and treatments. Musculoskeletal disorders were classified by a rheumatologist into predefined diagnostic categories. Prevalence was presented, and a cluster analysis was performed. Ei...
