The Association of Diabetes With Knee Pain Locations, Pain While Walking, and Walking Speed: Data From the Osteoarthritis Initiative.

CONCLUSIONS: Diabetes was associated with regional knee pain but not with localized or diffuse knee pain and was associated with moderate to severe knee pain while walking and slower walking speed in people with knee OA. IMPACT: Clinicians may use knee pain map for examining knee pain locations for people with diabetes and knee OA. knee pain during walk and walking speed should be screened for people with knee OA and diabetes because of diabetes influence on theses parameters in this population.

Abstract The effect of preoperative opioid use in orthopedic patients has been highlighted. Numerous studies have identified worse patient outcomes with pre-operative opioid use; however, there is currently no information identifying risk factors for preoperative opioid use in the total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) population. The purpose of this study was to determine risk factors for preoperative opioid use in patients undergoing primary anatomic TSA for primary osteoarthritis (OA) and to determine baseline preoperative patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in preoperative opioid users compared with nonopioid users. T...

In conclusion, our study demonstrated that Nrf2 deficiency promoted the increasing trend of autophagy during aging in skeletal muscle. Nrf2 deficiency and increasing age may cause excessive autophagy in skeletal muscle, which can be a potential mechanism for the development of sarcopenia.

Abstract Physicians often overlook exercise as a treatment or prophylactic measure for many common diseases and ailments. It can be used to treat comorbidities including obesity, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, cancer, and low back pain. Education on the general physical activity guidelines as well as easy exercise prescription methods can improve the ability of physicians to prescribe exercise as a therapeutic option. In addition, identifying barriers to compliance with exercise and ways to overcome these barriers is also necessary in...

Conclusion: In this study, the coastal areas of South Korea carry a higher burden than the national population. Additionally, chronic diseases compose the majority of the health burden in coastal areas. Despite the limitation of data, YLD was the best tool available for evaluating the health outcomes in specific areas, and has the advantage of simplicity and timely analysis.

CONCLUSIONS: This systematic review identified quality indicators that were predominantly used in formal provider networks and, with sufficient testing and further development, include the possibility of being used for measuring the quality of care in informal networks. The need for further research on suitable approaches to measure the interactions of quality of care and costs and on the validity, reliability and predictive suitability of single indicators as well as the finding that quality indicators especially developed for the German ambulatory sector were rarely used in the included studies constitute promising start...

Conclusions: Iatrogenic septic arthritis is not common; however its complications can be catastrophic to patients. Improper sterile techniques and untrained physicians are the main risks factors for this complication. Physicians should take proper sterile measures to avoid complications of intra-articular injections. PMID: 31236165 [PubMed]

We present a case report of pes anserine syndrome in a 79-year-old female who had undergone knee arthroplasty 13 years prior. She was pain free until one year ago when her knee pain resurfaced without any symptoms of infection or history of trauma. She was successfully treated with a combination of stretching exercise and steroid local steroid injection. We want to highlight that such common condition as pes anserine syndrome, could occur in total knee arthroplasty, and should be considered as one of the possible diagnosis.
