High Medium-Term Survivorship of Cruciate-Retaining Total Knee Arthroplasties (110 Knees) for Valgus Deformity

This article is retrospective consecutive series of 110 valgus knees using CR implants with a minimum 2-year follow-up. Deformity correction was achieved using stepwise sequential soft tissue releases (iliotibial band, popliteus tendon, lateral collateral release through sliver femoral condylar osteotomy). Demographic data, range of movement, and degrees of deformity were collected. The Oxford Knee Score (OKS) was used as patients' reported outcome measure at final follow-up. One-hundred and four patients (110 knees) were included (87 females/17 males) with mean age of 68.7 years. Primary diagnosis was osteoarthritis in 85 patients and rheumatoid arthritis in 19 patients. Mean follow-up was 5.5 years (median: 5 years; range: 2–14 years). Preoperative valgus deformity was measured radiographically using the mechanical tibiofemoral angle with a mean 18.6° (standard deviation [SD]: 7.5; range: 11–38°). At final follow-up, mechanical tibiofemoral angle was 3.8° (SD: 1.97; range: 2–8°). A p-value was

Abstract Synovial fat deposition, also known as lipoma arborescens, is a rare articular disorder with villous synovial proliferation, commonly seen in the knee. We explored the relationship between the degree of synovial fat deposition on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the severity of degenerative joint disorder, also called osteoarthritis, on plain radiography. The enrolled patients underwent MRI with a 0.4T permanent magnetic unit in a single institution over a 9-month period. The indications of MRI were chronic knee disorder of non-specific cause. Patients with minor trauma were also included. Consecu...

na Nieminen Eeva Moilanen Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is involved in the pathogenesis of various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the present study, we investigated the role of IL-6 in osteoarthritis (OA) patients and the effects of the stilbenoids monomethyl pinosylvin and pinosylvin on the expression of the cartilage matrix components aggrecan and collagen II and the inflammatory cytokine IL-6 in human OA chondrocytes. Synovial fluid and plasma samples were obtained from 100 patients with severe OA [BMI 29.7 (8.3) kg/m2, age 72 (14) years, median (IQR); 62/38 females/males] undergoing t...

ConclusionKnown risk factors for DIP joint OA were replicated in patients with RA. The observation that RA activity, the presence of ACPA, and MCP joint erosions were not associated with the prevalence or progression of DIP joint OA indicates that there are distinct roles of inflammation in the pathogenesis of RA and DIP joint OA.

CONCLUSION: The prevalence of autoantibodies is similar in HOA patients and HC, and these autoantibodies are not associated with erosive disease, structural damage, or inflammation in patients with HOA, indicating that another mechanism is driving erosive disease.

We report the findings in a 48-year-old man who had been complaining of left buttock pain for 3  years, getting worse over the last year, and an evolutive limited range of motion of the hip. The pain was increased by weight-bearing and was not relieved by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Radiographs and CT showed a large multilocular lytic lesion within the femoral head and a large lytic lesion in the left ilio-ischiatic ramus, raising the question of bifocal tumoral involvement. On MRI, the lesions had low signal intensity on T1- and high signal intensity on T2-weighted MR images, with subtle peripheral enhancem...
