Weight-bearing MR Imaging of Knee, Ankle and Foot

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2019; 23: 594-602 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1697940Clinical management of several pathologies of the lower extremity joint relies on instrumental imaging evaluation. The assessment of joint changes with physiologic load requires studies using positions with the patient standing. Weight-bearing radiographs are the mainstay for the evaluation of several conditions such as knee osteoarthritis, pes planus, and hallux valgus, in particular to obtain measurements of articular parameters, especially for presurgical studies. In the last few years, dedicated magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography scanners have also been developed to obtain high-resolution, multiplanar, and sectional images of the lower extremity joints during weight-bearing. These techniques provide detailed information on joint structure modifications under load in both physiologic and pathologic conditions to improve the diagnostic accuracy of weight-bearing studies.

AbstractBackgroundDespite being a common cause of quality-of-life impairment, there are no efficacious therapies that could prevent the progression of knee osteoarthritis (KOA). We conducted an open-label trial of human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) and hyaluronic acid (HA) for treating KOA.MethodsThis open-label study was conducted from July 2015 to December 2018 at Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Jakarta, Indonesia. Patients diagnosed with KOA were injected three times, comprising of 10  × 106 units of hUC-MSCs in 2-ml secretome implantation and 2-ml hyaluronic acid (HA) inject...

Authors: Schmitz MR, Murtha AS, Clohisy JC, ANCHOR Study Group Abstract Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in adolescents and young adults can cause notable pain and dysfunction and is a leading cause of progressive hip osteoarthritis in affected patients. Recognition of the clinical symptoms and radiographic presentation of DDH in adolescents and young adults are paramount for early management. Plain radiographs are critical for making proper diagnosis, whereas three-dimensional imaging including MRI and/or CT detects intra-articular pathology and better characterizes hip morphology. Management of early, sym...

This study aims to identify the prevalence of preoperative opioid prescriptions and the specialty and practice setting of the prescriber, as well as the percentage of patients who do not report their opioid prescriptions and any variables associated with preoperative opioid prescriptions. METHODS: A total of 461 consecutive new patients evaluated for an arthritic hip or knee were retrospectively studied using institutional data from a tertiary-care, urban center at a university-affiliated private-practice and the state Prescription Monitoring Program to identify opioid prescriptions (including medication, number of pil...

We aimed to determine whether preoperative factors such as sex, age, body mass index (BMI), prosthetic design, tibiofemoral angle (TFA), range of motion, coronal laxity, Hospital for Special Surgery score and periarticular bone mineral density (BMD) affect operative time.MethodsWe evaluated 164 patie...

CONCLUSIONS The present study demonstrated that 2-aminoquinoline prevents articular cartilage damage in osteoarthritis rats through inhibition of inflammatory factors and downregulation of NF-kappaB activation, suggesting that 2-aminoquinoline would be effective in treatment of osteoarthritis.

Objectives: To compare clinical and functional outcomes of total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) for distal humerus fractures (DHF) performed either as a primary procedure or after internal fixation. Design: Retrospective, observational study. Setting: Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN (1998 through 2016). Patients/Participants: Twenty-two TEA for acute DHF and 66 TEA after previous internal fixation. Main Outcome Measurements: Primary outcome measures included the Mayo Elbow Performance Score and motion. Reoperation rates and complications were also compared. Results: The mean time between internal fixation and arthrop...
