ConclusionThere is a close connection between UCMA SF levels and symptomatic and radiographic severities of knee OA. Therefore, UCMA can be a promising biomarker in the diagnosis and/or prognosis of OA disease.

Int J Sports Med DOI: 10.1055/a-0902-8539The purpose of this study was to conduct an up-to-date systematic review and meta-analysis of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) over minimal ten years after ACL reconstruction. The database of Pubmed and the Ovid was adopted. The radiographic knee OA over minimal ten years after ACL reconstruction was systematically reviewed. Both the ipsilateral and contralateral knees were evaluated referring to the tibiofemoral joint (TFJ), the patellofemoral joint (PFJ), and the overall knee OA prevalence. Nineteen studies were included for review, with nine screened for the meta-analysis. T...

This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of showing patients the change in their standing posture, before and after total knee replacement, using standing photographs (anterior, posterior, and lateral view), on improving self-reported quality of life and satisfaction. Full-length lower extremity radiographs and standing photographs were obtained prior to total knee replacement and 6 months after surgery in the study group. In the control group, radiographs and photographs were not obtained. The hip–knee–ankle angle and mechanical axis deviation were compared between the two limbs and two groups. Th...

ConclusionsLarge variations of PFJ OA after ACL injury are associated with different follow-up period and surgical techniques. ACL reconstructed population with bone-patellar tendon-bone graft, single-bundle reconstruction, and delayed operation time has a high prevalence of PFJ OA.

ConclusionWhile only the DASH work score strongly correlated with radiographic grade of first CMC OA, several measures detected considerable differences in functional hand use between patients and control subjects. The findings of this pilot study suggest that hand function scores be considered in addition to radiographs when determining severity of first CMC OA. The findings can also inform the design of a larger, powered study.

This study aims to evaluate functional, clinical and radiographic long-term outcomes after this procedure. METHODS: We reviewed 64 SCFE patients (76 SCFE hips) treated with ISF between 1983 and 1998. 82.9% were stable hips and 17.1% unstable according to Loder's definition. Initial radiographs demonstrated a mild slip in 50%, moderate in 41.3% and severe in 8.7% based on the Southwick angle. Long-term outcomes were assessed using the modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and Tegner activity scores, visual analogue scale (VAS) pain, VAS function, flexion-adduction-internal rot...

AbstractObjectiveThe aim of this study was to investigate cross-sectional associations between serum levels of IL-8 and the above outcomes in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA).MethodsA total of 160 subjects with clinical knee OA were included. Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score and Lequesne index were used to assess the joint symptom. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure knee structural abnormalities including infrapatellar fat pad (IPFP) signal intensity alternation. Knee radiographic OA was assessed by radiography using the Kellgren-Lawrence (K-L) grading system. E...

ConclusionsMarked improvement was observed in the three groups of patients after TKR, although non-obese and obese groups had better mean scores of KSS and FKSS than morbid obese patients. No significant differences were found within the morbid obese patients themselves. Therefore, we believe that morbid obese patients are appropriate candidates and can enjoy the benefits of total knee arthroplasty done with careful use of some surgical tips presented in our study.
