Authors: Jehan S, Javaid Iqbal H, Javaid MM, Mohammed Sharif K Abstract We performed a systematic review to find out the safety and efficacy of various procedures for isolated scaphotrapeziotrapezoid osteoarthritis. Eleven articles were included. The most common procedure was arthroplasty with pyrocarbon implant (28%), followed by resection of distal pole of scaphoid with proximal trapezium and trapezoid resection (18%). The other procedures included trapeziectomy with ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition (LRTI) (14%), arthroscopic resection of distal scaphoid (11%), trapezium and trapezoid resection wi...

Authors: De Smet A, Vanhove W, Benis S, Verstraete M, Hollevoet N Abstract Outcomes of 66 Arpe prostheses in 50 patients treated for osteoarthritis of the trapeziometacarpal joint were investigated with a mean follow-up of ten years. Ten-year survival was 87% when failure was defined as implant removal followed by trapeziectomy and tendon interposition. Ten-year survival was 82% when revision of the cup was also considered as failure and it was 80% when replacement of the neck alone was also chosen as an endpoint. Of the 52 prostheses that were not revised mean DASH score was 11, mean pain score 1.2 and mean score ...

Authors: Verhulst K, Dauwe J, Van Nuffel M, De Smet L Abstract Trapeziectomy with ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition and trapeziometacarpal prosthesis are two commonly used procedures for first carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study is to compare the short-term outcome of trapeziectomy with ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition to trapeziometacarpal prosthesis. Pubmed, Cochrane library and science direct database were searched with adequate search terms. Used parameters were force, pain, mobility, functionality and complication. All papers describing short-term outc...

Authors: Van Elst C, Caekebeke P, Vandenneucker H, Bellemans J, Scheys L Abstract Partial meniscectomy is a frequently performed treatment strategy for non-suturable meniscal tears. However, the meniscal volume which can be resected without compromising the load-bearing, shock-absorbing function of the meniscus remains a topic of ongoing research. The aim of this study was to calculate the medio-lateral meniscal volume ratio to estimate this volume. In 90 patients (98 pairs of menisci) without meniscal injury, medial and lateral menisci were segmented on MRI imaging and 3D surface models were created to calculate v...

Authors: Bongers J, Vandenneucker H Abstract The purpose of this narrative review was to highlight the research on the influence of weather conditions on patients with osteoarthritis, the pathophysiological mechanisms and the therapeutic consequences. A search was conducted using the Pubmed, Medline and Web of Science databases. Barometric pressure, temperature and humidity are the weather conditions that are found to be correlated most to the worsening of pain complaints. But, due to the difficulty of measuring the impact of these variables and the great diversity in study protocols, an analysis of studies regardi...
