Treatment for acute anterior cruciate ligament tear: five year outcome of randomised trial
TLDR
In this first high quality randomised controlled trial with minimal loss to follow-up, a strategy of rehabilitation plus early ACL reconstruction did not provide better results at five years than an initial rehabilitation with the option of having a later ACL reconstruction.
Articular cartilage in the knee: current MR imaging techniques and applications in clinical practice and research.
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the most important imaging modality for the evaluation of traumatic or degenerative cartilaginous lesions in the knee. It is a powerful noninvasive tool for
MRI features of cystic lesions around the knee.
Meniscus pathology, osteoarthritis and the treatment controversy
TLDR
Conservative management of patients with knee pain and a degenerative meniscal tear should be considered as a first-line therapy before surgical treatment is contemplated, and the possibility of an increased risk of OA if functional meniscal tissue is removed cannot be overlooked.
Sesamoids and accessory ossicles of the foot: anatomical variability and related pathology
TLDR
An overview of the anatomy of sesamoids and accessory ossicles in the foot is described, and a pictorial review of their pathological conditions, including trauma, sedamoiditis, osteomyelitis, arthritis, osteoarthritis and pain syndromes are provided.
Valgus malalignment is a risk factor for lateral knee osteoarthritis incidence and progression: findings from the Multicenter Osteoarthritis Study and the Osteoarthritis Initiative.
TLDR
A strong relationship of valgus malalignment with progressive lateral meniscal damage is found, which may cause these effects, in part, by increasing the risk of meniscalDamage.
Fluctuation of knee pain and changes in bone marrow lesions, effusions, and synovitis on magnetic resonance imaging.
TLDR
Changes in BMLs and synovitis are associated with fluctuations in knee pain in patients with knee OA and similar associations were also observed between these structural lesions and the severity of knee pain.
