OBJECTIVES To evaluate the occurrence, clinical characteristics and prognostic factors associated with ankle arthritis in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS 440 children with JIA were followed for eight years in a prospective Nordic population-based cohort study. Data on remission was available for 427 of these children. Occurrence(More)
This chapter describes three-dimensional gait analysis and common gait deviations in adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). Furthermore, we describe changes in gait deviations following surgical and non-surgical interventions. Gait analysis is used to define gait deviations and to evaluate varying surgical approaches, types of(More)
The current literature lacks sufficient information about improvements in gait patterns and function after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and whether patients return to full function. This study evaluated change in gait, performance-based function, and self-reported function 1 year after TKA in patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis and how these(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate gait dynamics and self-reported foot-related disability before and after treatment with intraarticular corticosteroid injections (IACI) in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and foot involvement, and determined whether children with polyarticular and oligoarticular disease responded similarly to IACI treatment. METHODS(More)
Moment-angle relationship (dynamic joint stiffness)--the relationship between changes in joint moment and changes in joint angle--is useful for demonstrating interaction of kinematics and kinetics during gait. However, the individual contributors of dynamic joint stiffness are not well studied and understood, which has thus far limited its clinical(More)
Results Of the 440 children with JIA, 251 (57%) experienced ankle arthritis during the first eight years of disease. Ankle arthritis was least common in the persistent oligoarticular category (25%) and the ankle joint was most commonly affected in children with the extended oligoarticular (83%) and polyarticular RF negative (85%) JIA. Children who developed(More)
BACKGROUND Limited knowledge exists regarding the impact of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) on the overall gait pattern; and whether gait deviations are associated with performance-based measures (PBMs) and patient-reported outcomes (PROs). This cross-sectional study evaluated overall gait patterns in patients with knee OA using the Gait Deviation(More)
