OBJECTIVE To investigate whether antidrug antibodies and/or drug non-trough levels predict the long-term treatment response in a large cohort of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with adalimumab or etanercept and to identify factors influencing antidrug antibody and drug levels to optimize future treatment decisions. METHODS A total of 331(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the distal femur rotation pattern in a Brazilian population, correlating such pattern with the one suggested by the arthroplasty instruments, and analyzing the variability of each anatomic parameter. MATERIALS AND METHODS A series of 101 magnetic resonance imaging studies were evaluated in the period between April and June 2012. The(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the imaging findings of patients with clinical symptoms of lower back pain who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lumbar spine with axial loading. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined 120 patients by MRI, before and after axial loading, using a compression device that applied 50% of their body weight for a load time of(More)
Objetivo: Definir o padrão de rotação do fêmur distal em população brasileira, correlacionar esse padrão com o sugerido pelos instrumentais de artroplastia e analisar a variabilidade de cada parâmetro anatômico. Materiais e Métodos: Foram avaliados 101 exames de ressonância magnética no período compreendido entre abril e junho de 2012. A coleta dos dados(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze and describe the distance from the popliteal artery to three specific areas of the proximal region of the tibia, with the knee extended, by means of magnetic resonance. METHODS Images of 100 knees of patients who underwent magnetic resonance examinations were analyzed. The location of the popliteal artery was measured in three(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare intraoperative measurements of the knee with those obtained by magnetic resonance imaging, in order to validate the latter method for use in anthropometric studies. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 20 knees in 20 patients with osteoarthritis, all of whom underwent total arthroplasty between August and December of 2013. We took six(More)
