Osteoarthritis: New Insights. Part 1: The Disease and Its Risk Factors
This article is part 1 of a two-part summary of an NIH conference, Stepping Away with OA: Prevention of Onset, Progression, and Disability of Osteoarthritis, which brought together experts in osteoarth arthritis from diverse backgrounds and provided a multidisciplinary and comprehensive summary of recent advances in the prevention.
OARSI guidelines for the non-surgical management of knee osteoarthritis.
OARSI guidelines for the non-surgical management of knee, hip, and polyarticular osteoarthritis.
Risk factors for the incidence and progression of radiographic knee osteoarthritis.
Most currently recognized risk factors for prevalent knee OA (obesity, knee injury, and physical activity) influence incidence more than radiographic progression, and these factors might selectively influence osteophyte formation more than joint space narrowing.
Radiographic patterns of osteoarthritis of the knee joint in the community: the importance of the patellofemoral joint.
Patellofemoral joint osteoarthritis is common, associated with disability, occurs in the absence of tibiofemoral disease, and can no longer be omitted from future studies of osteoartritis of the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis: New Insights. Part 2: Treatment Approaches
Although acetaminophen fails to adequately relieve pain in many patients, it merits a trial on the basis of its overall cost, efficacy, and toxicity profile and is derived from updated recommendations of the American College of Rheumatology for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
Tai Chi is effective in treating knee osteoarthritis: a randomized controlled trial.
Tai Chi reduces pain and improves physical function, self-efficacy, depression, and health-related quality of life for knee OA.
Glucosamine and chondroitin for treatment of osteoarthritis: a systematic quality assessment and meta-analysis.
Evaluation of benefit of glucosamine and chondroitin preparations for OA symptoms using meta-analysis combined with systematic quality assessment of clinical trials of these preparations in knee and/or hip OA suggests some degree of efficacy appears probable for these preparations.
Determinants of disability in osteoarthritis of the knee.
Quadriceps strength, knee pain, and age are more important determinants of functional impairment in elderly subjects than the severity of knee osteoarthritis as assessed radiographically.
