Knee osteoarthritis lumbar-disc degeneration and developmental dysplasia of the hip - an emerging genetic overlap Open Access

Location: http://arthritis-research.com/content/pdf/ar3291.pdf

Genetics highlights relationships between biological systems, and as the number of defi ned osteoarthritis susceptibility alleles increases, there is the natural tendency to assess whether the alleles infl uence other musculoskeletal phenotypes. That has proven to be the case for the GDF5 polymorphism rs143383, a risk factor for knee osteoarthritis and several other common conditions, including lumbar-disc degeneration...

Medial Compartment Arthritis eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic518.htm

Optimal surgical management of the unicompartmental osteoarthritic knee has eluded the orthopedist for decades. McKeever is credited with recognizing that arthritis of the knee could be unicompartmental in nature. Treatment options for medial compartment arthritis have varied extensively, including valgus unloading braces; opening or closing wedge osteotomies of the proximal...

Medial knee osteoarthritis treated by insoles or braces CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2881986

Questions/purposes We therefore asked whether laterally wedged insoles or valgus braces would reduce pain, enhance functional scores, and correct varus malalignment comparable to knee braces.
Conclusions Our data suggest a laterally wedged insole may be an alternative to valgus bracing for noninvasively treating symptoms of medial knee OA.

Medical management of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip joints

Location: http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/180_05_010304/gra10763_fm.html

Osteoarthritis is a common, chronic condition which requires an individualised management plan involving multiple kinds of treatment.
Exercise programs and the Arthritis
Self-Management Program reduce pain and disability associated with osteoarthritis.
Paracetamol is the most appropriate first-line analgesic.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may be used as second-line analgesia on an as-needed basis (including continuous...

Osteoarthritis What We Have Been Missing in the Patellofemoral Joint Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/568393

Patellofemoral osteoarthritis is common clinically and often independent of tibiofemoral disease. Intriguingly, the patella demonstrates more severe degeneration earlier in the disease process compared with the juxtaposed femoral groove. Here, we consider three hypotheses influencing this disparity and thus discover crucial insights into the etiology of osteoarthritis.

Patellofemoral Arthritis eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic431.htm

Patellofemoral arthritis usually affects the same patient population affected by arthritis of other joints. Increasing age, obesity, overuse, chronic joint instability, prior interarticular fractures, and systemic inflammatory conditions are risk factors for the development of arthritis in the hip, knee, patella, and other weight-bearing joints. Patellofemoral arthritis can also occur...
