Recent literature suggests that adults do not necessarily develop osteoarthritis if they have an osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT). The purpose of this study was to determine if children with OLT are at risk to develop any radiographic evidence of early joint degeneration despite treatment efforts. Fifty-six ankles were identified over 6 years with stable OLT that underwent operative treatment. Preoperatively, each lesion was classified according to Berndt-Hardy for radiographs, Hepple for MRI, and Ferkel and Sgaglione for computed tomography. Radiographs were also evaluated for physeal status, OLT characteristics (l...

CONCLUSIONS: Individuals with a history of ACLR who exhibited elevated levels of injury-related fear demonstrated slower VMRT. There were no relationships between self-reported knee function and VMRT. Future research should explore interventions to address injury-related fear and VMRT in individuals after ACLR.

Athletes may also complain of pain caused by them. They are treated in a variety of ways, none of which used as a single method is successful for all individuals. Muscle “…stretching, massage, ischemic compression, laser therapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimu...

In conclusion, AK094629 knockdown attenuated the expression of IL‑1β‑regulated IL‑6 in the SMSCs of the temporomandibular joint by inhibiting MAP3K4. Therefore, AK094629 may be a potential novel therapeutic target for the treatment of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis. PMID: 32468015 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
