Osteoarthritis of the hip: are degenerative tears of the acetabular labrum predictable from features on hip radiographs?

Osteoarthritis of the hip: are degenerative tears of the acetabular labrum predictable from features on hip radiographs? Acta Radiol. 2020 Jul 08;:284185120936269 Authors: Gonzalez FM, Gagnon MH, Reiter D, Younan Y, Sayyid S, Singer A, Umpierrez M, Sharma GB, Robertson DD Abstract BACKGROUND: A common feature of hip arthritis is the presence of labra tears. Recent literature suggests against the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients aged>45 years for the assessment of hip pain related to arthritis. PURPOSE: To determine if radiographic features of osteoarthritis detectable on routine hip radiographs are accurate and reliable surrogate markers of degenerative acetabular labral tears identified on MR arthrography (MRA) and corroborated during arthroscopy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study involving 86 symptomatic patients (hip pain) with radiologic work-up included MRA and pelvic or hip radiographs that underwent hip arthroscopy within three months. Imaging characteristics assessed on hip radiographs include measurements of superior acetabular, femoral head osteophyte, cortical thickness of the femoral shaft, and minimum joint space as well as presence of subchondral sclerosis of the femoral head and acetabulum, femoral shaft buttressing, and grade of arthritis. Presence of a labral tear was determined by consensus between three readers as well as by surgical correlation. The Pearson's chi-squared and Fisher's exact tes...

In this study, we examined the effects of oxytocin on the Aβ-induced impairment of synaptic plasticity in mice. To investigate the effect of oxytocin on synaptic plasticity, we prepared acute hippocampal slices for extracellular recording and assessed long-term potentiation (LTP) with perfusion of the Aβ active fragment (Aβ25-35) in the absence and presence of oxytocin. We found that oxytocin reversed the impairment of LTP induced by Aβ25-35 perfusion in the mouse hippocampus. These effects were blocked by pretreatment with the selective oxytocin receptor antagonist L-368,899. Furthermore, the tr...

AbstractIntroductionMedial osteoarthritis (OA) knees with symptomatic patellofemoral (PF) arthritis were not recommended for UKA in the past. However, UKA has shown good clinical results in patients with medial OA knee with symptomatic PF arthritis. On the contrary, this procedure is not recommended for patients with severe PF OA. Patella denervation (PD) by circumferential electrocautery can reduce the severity and incidence of anterior knee pain in TKA. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no studies reporting anterior knee pain and complications of medial UKA with PD in severe PF OA.ObjectiveWe have conducte...

An analysis of a large study population here shows that glucosamine supplementation results in about a 15% reduction in mortality, a sizable effect size in the context of what is known of the effects of lifestyle choices and supplementation on aging. Glucosamine is used as an anti-inflammatory intervention, but there is at best only mixed evidence for it to actually do much good as a treatment for specific inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. It is nonetheless widely used, hence the ability to see outcomes in sizable group of people. The effect on mortality is certainly an interesting outcome, given the lack of robus...

DISCUSSION: These results demonstrate geniculate nerve thermal RFA to be a superior nonsurgical treatment of knee OA compared with NSAIDs and IA corticosteroid injections. None of the RCTs reported any serious AEs with geniculate nerve thermal RFA, as opposed to known cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and renal AEs for NSAIDs and accelerated cartilage loss and periprosthetic infection risk for IA corticosteroid injections. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level I. PMID: 32701684 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This randomized withdrawal trial evaluates whether discontinuing nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and engaging in a telephone-based cognitive behavioral therapy program is noninferior to continuing nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Authors: Alahdal M, Duan L, Ouyang H, Wang D Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic degenerative joint disease and a leading cause of disability. It involves articular cartilage destruction and a whole joint inflammation. In spite of OA pathogenesis is still unclear, new studies on the OA pathophysiological aetiology and immunomodulation therapy continuously achieve significant advances with new concepts. Here, we focus on the indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase1 (IDO1) activity in the osteoarthritis (OA), which is one of the noticeable enzymes in the synovial fluid of arthritis patients. It was recognized as an essenti...
