Health-related quality of life in patients with hand osteoarthritis from the general population and the outpatient clinic.
CONCLUSION: Hand osteoarthritis was associated with reduced physical, but not mental HRQoL in the general population and hospital patients. Physical HRQoL was further reduced in hospital care, and with concurrent knee osteoarthritis. PMID: 31787601 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Statistically significant decreases in alpha angle were noted for both surgical techniques, with larger decreases seen in the anterior mini-open group. PMID: 31966967 [PubMed]
This study would provide rigorous evidence for the effect and safety of CO2 laser moxibustion in treating knee OA (Trial registration No.: ISRCTN15030019).
In conclusion, inhibition of the CXCL12a/CXCR4 signaling axis maintained TIMP-3 expression via the PI3K/Akt pathway. Our findings provide insight into the mechanism by which AMD3100 prevents OA.
This report presents the case of a 40-year-old male snowboard instructor who suffered from a neglected fracture of the lateral process of the talus and was treated with open reduction using an iliac autogenous bone graft.
Innate immune response and particularly terminal complement complex (TCC) deposition are thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of posttraumatic osteoarthritis. However, the possible role of TCC in regulated cell death as well as chondrocyte hypertrophy and senescence has not been unraveled so far and was first addressed using an ex vivo human cartilage trauma-model.
ConclusionAS primary TKA was inferior to PS TKA in terms of posterior knee stability, postoperative knee flexion and clinical scores after 2 years.Level of evidenceTherapeutic study, Level 1.
The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is an alternative to legacy outcome metrics. We investigated the relationship between Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcomes Score for Joint Replacement (KOOS-JR) and PROMIS Global Health forms of Physical Health (PH) and Mental Health (MH) in knee arthroplasty patients.
