  • Patient-Reported Outcomes After Platelet-Rich Plasma, Bone Marrow
           Aspirate, and Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cell Injections for
           Symptomatic Knee Osteoarthritis

    • Authors: Esteban Estrada, Jose L Décima, Marcelo Rodríguez, Marianela Di Tomaso, Javier Roberti
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Objective:The objective of this study was to compare platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), and adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) injections in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee using functional scores.Methods:A total of 89 patients with painful knee OA were included in this study. Patients were assigned to one of the 3 treatments according to severity of OA as indicated by symptoms and radiography to PRP (stage I), BMAC (stage II), or adipose-derived MSC (stage III). Clinical assessment was performed using the Knee Society Score, which combines the Knee Score, based on the clinical parameters, and the Functional Score, and IKDC score. Surveys were completed at preoperative and at 90, 180, and 265 days postoperative. The follow-up responses were compared with baseline and between treatment groups.Results:Treatment with PRP, BMAC, and adipose-derived MSC included 29 (32.6%), 27 (30.3%), and 33 (37.1%) patients, respectively. For the total group, median age was 61 years (range: 22-84 years). Score values were comparable among treatment groups at baseline. Statistically significant improvement was observed in the 3 groups according to the 3 scores at all time points during follow-up compared with baseline. No difference was found among treatment type.Conclusions:Our findings support previous reports and encourage further research on the use of these cost-effective treatments for OA of the knee.

  • Atlantoaxial Rotatory Subluxation in a 10-Year-Old Boy

    • Authors: Eric Chun Pu Chu, Divya Midhun Chakkaravarthy, Fa Sain Lo, Amiya Bhaumik
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation (AARS) is the loss of normal alignment and stability of the first (atlas) and second (axis) cervical vertebrae with respect to each other. We describe the clinical challenges of managing a 10-year-old boy who presented with repetitive episodes of torticollis. Open-mouth odontoid radiograph and computed tomographic (CT) scan gave a diagnosis in ARRS, based on its characteristic imaging findings. The child was admitted multiple times for continuous halter traction in the first 6 months after symptom onset. He also experienced a temporary complication from an overcorrection with correcting neck bracing. Seven months after symptom onset, this case was discussed by a multidisciplinary spine team and referred to chiropractic clinic. Despite persistent radiographic evidence of atlantoaxial instability, after 5 months of chiropractic treatment, the child was asymptomatic with nearly full range of neck movement. He also weaned off acetaminophen he had been taking over the past year. Incidentally, bilateral gynecomastia was discovered at the surveillance after treatment. The incidental finding of innocent gynecomastia, even if common in preteen boys, brings up the topic of acetaminophen’s effects on the regulation of sex hormones that was previously overlooked.

  • Shoulder Double Crush Syndrome: A Retrospective Study of Patients With
           Concomitant Suprascapular Neuropathy and Cervical Radiculopathy

    • Authors: Yoshihiro Katsuura, Katherine Yao, Eric Chang, Tareck A Kadrie, John A Dorizas
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Purpose:While the double crush phenomena (compression along two points on a nerve) has been established between median neuropathy and cervical radiculopathy, combined suprascapular neuropathy (SSN) and cervical C5/C6 radiculopathy—so-called shoulder double crush syndrome—has not been well examined. We aim to identify the incidence of shoulder double crush syndrome in patients undergoing arthroscopic suprascapular nerve release for SSN.Methods:One hundred consecutive patients>18 years of age who were positive for SSN on electromyography and motor nerve conduction studies (EMG/NCS) and underwent a suprascapular nerve release were included. Patients with evidence of shoulder double crush syndrome were identified based on x ray, cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and examination findings. Demographics, electrodiagnostics results, treatment courses, and clinical outcomes (visual analog scores and rotator cuff strength) following arthroscopic suprascapular nerve release were compared between patients with double crush syndrome versus isolated SSN.Results:Thirty one percent of patients had evidence of shoulder crush syndrome. Two significant electrophysiologic differences were noted in shoulder double crush patients compared to isolated SSN patients. Patients with double crush had an increased incidence of median neuropathy (51% vs 30%, P = .04). Double crush patients had less supraspinatus motor amplitude difference between the affected side and non-affected side compared to isolated SSN patients (2.62 mV vs 3.44 mV, P = .03). In general, most double crush patients were treated conservatively with regard to their cervical spine pathology.Conclusion:A significant percentage of patients with SSN have evidence of shoulder double crush syndrome. Patients with SSN and concomitant median neuropathy should have a detailed neck examination performed.

  • Midfoot Arthritis in Children: Is There Any Relation With Malignancy'

    • Authors: Reza Shiari, Nargess Salar, Vadood Javadi Parvneh, Khosro Rahmani, Mehrnoush Hassas Yeganeh, Sara Shiari
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:Musculoskeletal symptoms are a presenting manifestation in a number of lymphoproliferative disorders including leukemia, especially in children. Among these primary symptoms, midfoot arthritis seems to be an important alarm for malignancy in children. The aim of this study is evaluation association of midfoot arthritis with malignancy in children.Method:In this cross-sectional study, all medical records of patients with arthritis were identified and reviewed. All clinical and laboratory data were recorded in the information form and data were analyzed by SPSS 25 software.Results:A total of 557 cases of arthritis were evaluated, of which 18 (3.2%) cases have primary symptoms of midfoot arthritis. Four of 18 patients (22.2%) had B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia, that midfoot arthritis was their first manifestation. Also, their laboratory findings confirmed that platelet, lactic acid dehydrogenesis, and uric acid values were significantly higher in these children. Based on statistical evaluation, there was no significant difference between age and sex in these patients.Conclusion:According to the findings of the present study, it can be concluded that “midfoot arthritis” may be the first manifestation of leukemia in children even with a near-normal hematologic values.

      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2020.
      Background:For patients with chronic, non-cancer pain, traditional pain-relieving medications include opioids, which have shown benefits but are associated with increased risks of addiction and adverse effects. Medical cannabis has emerged as a treatment alternative for managing these patients and there has been a rise in the number of randomized clinical trials in recent years; therefore, a systematic review of the evidence was warranted.Objective:To analyze the evidence surrounding the benefits and harms of medical cannabinoids in the treatment of chronic, non-cancer-related pain.Design:Systematic review with meta-analysis.Data sources:Medline, Embase, CINAHL, SCOPUS, Google Scholar, and Cochrane Databases.Eligibility criteria:English language randomized clinical trials of cannabinoids for the treatment of chronic, non-cancer-related pain.Data extraction and synthesis:Study quality was assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias tool. All stages were conducted independently by a team of 6 reviewers. Data were pooled through meta-analysis with different durations of treatment (2 weeks, 2 months, 6 months) and stratified by route of administration (smoked, oromucosal, oral), conditions, and type of cannabinoids.Main outcomes and measures:Patient-reported pain and adverse events (AEs).Results:Thirty-six trials (4006 participants) were included, examining smoked cannabis (4 trials), oromucosal cannabis sprays (14 trials), and oral cannabinoids (18 trials). Compared with placebo, cannabinoids showed a significant reduction in pain which was greatest with treatment duration of 2 to 8 weeks (weighted mean difference on a 0-10 pain visual analogue scale −0.68, 95% confidence interval [CI], −0.96 to −0.40, I2 = 8%, P  .05 in all the 3 durations of treatment); cannabinoids had a smaller reduction in pain due to multiple sclerosis compared with placebo relative to other neuropathic pain (P[interaction] = .05) within 2 weeks and the difference was not significant relative to pain due to rheumatic arthritis; nabilone had a greater reduction in pain compared with placebo relative to other types of cannabinoids longer than 2 weeks of treatment but the difference was not significant (P[interaction] > .05). Serious AEs were rare, and similar across the cannabinoid (74 out of 2176, 3.4%) and placebo groups (53 out of 1640, 3.2%). There was an increased risk of non-serious AEs with cannabinoids compared with placebo.Conclusions:There was moderate evidence to support cannabinoids in treating chronic, non-cancer pain at 2 weeks. Similar results were observed at later time points, but the confidence in effect is low. There is little evidence that cannabinoids increase the risk of experiencing serious AEs, although non-serious AEs may be common in the short-term period following use.
