Med Sci Monit. 2022 Jan 26;28:e933775. doi: 10.12659/MSM.933775.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to explore the feasibility of ulnar groove plasty guided by a three-dimensional (3D) printing technique for treatment of moderate to severe cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS) caused by elbow osteoarthritis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with moderate to severe CuTS secondary to osteoarthritis of the elbow were enrolled in our hospital from April 2015 to March 2018. Based on a previously proposed "elbow canal index", a 1: 1 model of the elbow joint was printed using CT image data collected preoperatively. A...

AbstractAimIt is unknown if pain in knee osteoarthritis (KOA) follows distinct patterns over the short term. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify whether persons with a previous history of KOA pain fluctuations have distinct trajectories of pain over 90  days and to examine associations between baseline characteristics and pain trajectories.MethodPeople with a previous history of KOA were selected from a web-based longitudinal study. Baseline variables were sex, age, being obese/overweight, years of KOA, knee injury, knee buckling, satisfactory Lubben Social Support Score, pain and stress scales, Intermitt...

AbstractBackgroundThis exploratory study investigates if intra-articular injected gold microparticles in knee osteoarthritis (KOA) reduce immunomodulatory-based pain via proteomic changes in the synovial fluid (SF) and serum.MethodsThirty patients with moderate KOA were included. Intraarticular injections with 20 mg gold microparticles (72.000 particles, 20-40 µm in diameter) using the patient’s synovial fluid (SF) as carrier were performed. Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) subscores for pain, stiffness, and function were assessed at inclusion, 8 weeks and 2 years The PainD...

Medical research and development in the context of aging has, like all other medicine, been dominated for a long time by a model in which a single disease is identified by symptoms and then treated. In the context of infectious disease and inherited conditions, this is a good way to go about the matter of investigation, treatment, and assignment of resources. A patient typically has one disease at a time, and the symptoms are distinct and clearly caused by the disease in question. Indeed, the disease paradigm arose from the modern era's long road towards ever more effective control of infectious disease. The institutions a...

Acta Biomed. 2022 Jan 19;92(6):e2021354. doi: 10.23750/abm.v92i6.11195.ABSTRACTDegenerative meniscal lesions (DML) typically occur in middle-aged or elderly patients without any history of significant acute trauma. Its prevalence increases with age and are associated with knee osteoarthritis (OA). The most frequent orthopaedic treatment is arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) to relieve pain and functional deficit associated with DML. Nevertheless, several randomised controlled clinical trials recommed against APM as the first-line treatment for managing knee pain in patients affected by DML and no radiographic knee OA ...

Plast Reconstr Surg. 2022 Feb 1;149(2):436-442. doi: 10.1097/PRS.0000000000008726.ABSTRACTSUMMARY: Hyperextension deformity of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb causes pain and loss of function. Although many treatments have been proposed, none of them are universally accepted as ideal. The authors report a study of 12 symptomatic hyperextension deformities of the thumb metacarpophalangeal joint in 10 patients who underwent surgical correction. The purpose of this study was to describe a new technique of tenodesis of the thumb metacarpophalangeal joint using the extensor pollicis brevis tendon. The technique consi...

ConclusionPreliminary results show that the shear modulus of the hamstring of KOA patients is higher than that of healthy people, the WOMAC score and the shear modulus of patients are moderately correlated. These preliminary results show that ultrasonic shear wave elastography measurement of shear modulus may be enough to sensitive, can detect these effects, more targeted in order to assist the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment.

Objective: To investigate the effects of electrical dry needling (DN) plus corticosteroid injection (CSI) on pain, physical function, and global change in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee (KOA).Design: A prospective, single-blinded, randomized clinical trial.Setting: Pain treatment clinic.Participants: Sixty patients with KOA were randomly assigned to the electrical dry needling plus corticosteroid injection (electrical-DN+CSI) group or CSI group.Interventions: The CSI group received glucocorticoid injection only once during the trial, and the electrical-DN+CSI group received glucocorticoid injection combined with ...
