Joint-specific prevalence of osteoarthritis of the hand.
TLDR
The findings suggest the need for further investigation of the role gender can play in the development of hand OA in populations under 60 years of age, and quantify the prevalence of radiographic hand osteoarthritis among community-dwelling individuals.
History of acute knee injury and osteoarthritis of the knee: a prospective epidemiological assessment. The Clearwater Osteoarthritis Study.
TLDR
Acute knee joint injury appears to be a risk factor for the development of knee OA and prevention strategies for OA should be targeted to those individuals with a history of acute knee injury.
Smoking and osteoarthritis: is there an association? The Clearwater Osteoarthritis Study.
TLDR
Smoking does not appear to convey a clinically significant level of protection against the development of radiologically-confirmed OA, and anecdotal evidence warrants investigation into the role that cigarette smoking may play in the symptomatology of OA.
The association of radiographic foot osteoarthritis and radiographic osteoarthritis at other sites.
TLDR
The findings support the theory of a systemic etiology involved in the development of OA, and found a significant, positive relationship between grade 2+ foot OA and second DIP, third PIP, first CMC, and knee OA.
Osteoarthritis pain and weather.
TLDR
It is indicated that weather is quite modestly, if at all, associated with pain from OA, as compared with a population of exercisers aged 49 yr and older.
Physical activity as a risk factor for osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
A statistically significant positive association between high PA level and knee OA was observed for women, and associations persisted when controlling simultaneously for potential confounders including age, obesity, history of knee injury, and socioeconomic status, indicating that the OA-PA association is limited to women.
Correlation of roentgenographic patterns and clinical manifestations of symptomatic idiopathic osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
A classification system of IOA that has been designed and modified to reflect the unique roentgenographic, epidemiologic, and clinical characterization of the six subsets of tibiofemoral deformity is reported on.
The association between medication usage and dropout status among participants of an exercise study for people with osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Self-reported arthritis medication usage the month prior to study enrollment was associated with subsequent dropout status among this group of exercisers with osteoarthritis, and baseline characteristics predictive of participant drop out status were identified.
Neuropathy and diabetic pressure lesions.
Plantar pressure measurements. Rational shoe-wear in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Objective measurements of forefoot plantar pressures were taken on 25 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The Harris mat footprint test and the Brand slipper sock test were used to assess both
