Effect of a short message service (SMS) intervention on adherence to a physiotherapist-prescribed home exercise program for people with knee osteoarthritis and obesity: protocol for the ADHERE randomised controlled trial

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent condition. People with knee OA often have other co-morbidities such as obesity. Exercise is advocated in all clinical guidelines for the management of knee OA. It...

CONCLUSION: The healthcare burden of knee OA will continue to increase for the foreseeable future. Public health measures to reduce further increases in population obesity rates would contribute to slowing this rising burden. PMID: 31581182 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract As the rate of obesity increases globally, so does the incidence of other non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and dementia, which have been referred to as 'adiposity-based chronic disease'. With timely lifestyle modification such as behavioral changes, implementation of a healthy diet, and proper physical activity, many of these diseases can be prevented. Weight gain is one of the major health concerns of midlife. Midlife body changes are the result of aging, menopause, and other influences unique to menopausal women which interfere wit...

Gastaldi Overweight/obesity is a physical condition that affects daily activities, including walking. The main purpose of this study was to identify if there is a relationship between body mass index (BMI) and gait characteristics in young adults. 12 normal weight (NW) and 10 overweight/obese (OW) individuals walked at a self-selected speed along a 14 m indoor path. H-Gait system, combining seven inertial sensors (fixed on pelvis and lower limbs), was used to record gait data. Walking speed, spatio-temporal parameters and joint kinematics in 3D were analyzed. Differences between NW and OW and correlations between BMI ...

Abstract Background: The aim of this prospective cohort study was to determine the effect of preoperative mental health status on functional outcome 1 year after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Methods: Data were collected for 677 patients from a randomized controlled trial in Alberta who received primary THA between April 2005 and June 2006 (sex, age, body mass index [BMI], comorbidities, back pain and need for another lower limb arthroplasty procedure within 1 yr after surgery). The Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) and 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) mental health ...

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2019; 23: 569-578 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1695720Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease in the United States. The prevalence of OA is rising due to an aging population and increasing rates of obesity. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows an incomparable noninvasive assessment of all joint structures. Irreversible and progressive degradation of the articular cartilage remains the hallmark feature of OA. To date, attempts at developing disease-modifying drugs or biomechanical interventions for treating OA have proven unsuccessful. MRI-based cartilage imaging techniques have continued t...

hey all, I’m doing a significant amount genicular RFA with mixed results. Mainly in patients who are non-surgical candidate with severe knee osteoarthritis, morbid obesity etc. I work in the hospital when I started they already had coolief so I have been using that exclusively. Used it in fellowship. based on the Franco cadaver study, the superior medial and superior lateral Lie in the 50th to 75th percent depth of the distal femur, So I do two lesions at the sites (even with cooled), one... Genicular RFA. Any input helpful!

Abstract The increasing occurrence of obesity has become a significant public health concern. Obese individuals have higher prevalence of heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, diabetes, and reproductive disorders. Reproductive problems include menstrual irregularities, pregnancy complications, and infertility due to anovulation, in women, and lower testosterone and diminished sperm count, in men. In particular, obese women have reduced levels of both gonadotropin hormones and, in obese men, lower testosterone is accompanied by diminished luteinizing hormone. Together these findings indicate central dysregulation ...

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1696735Limited evidence is available on mid-term follow-up for patients with body mass index (BMI) ≥ 40 receiving a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). The primary objective of this study was to investigate survival of the UKA in patients with BMI ≥ 40. Secondary objectives were to assess functional and patient reported outcome measures (PROMs). Survival analysis with endpoint revision of any component for any reason was conducted using Kaplan–Meier technique on 121 knees (103 patients) that underwent UKA with Oxford Phase 3 implant (Oxford Knee,...
