This study was performed to evaluate supra- and sublesional bone mineral density (BMD) in spinal cord-injured (SCI) patients after 1 year postinjury, and to correlate the BMD to the neurological level; to correlate the sublesional demineralization to functional parameters (duration postinjury, duration of the initial bedrest); and to assess the role of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the natural history, prognosis, and nosology of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome. METHODS We performed clinical, radiological, and biological reassessment of 19 cases of SAPHO syndrome (13 with pustulosis palmaris et plantaris, 3 with acne, 3 with no dermatological manifestations) after a mean disease(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is associated with cartilage degeneration and an accompanying inflammatory syndrome of the synovium in addition to alteration of the subchondral bone. The molecular and cellular events involved in OA have only partially been elucidated. This review provides a global view of the physiopathology of OA, as well as non-pharmacological and(More)
Despite previously carrying out a first open study of sacroiliac injection of long-acting corticosteroid, it was not possible to evaluate the role of a placebo effect. We therefore performed a double-blind study in 10 patients/13 articulations, suffering painful sacroiliitis. At 1 month, 5/6 sacroiliac joints injected with corticosteroid described a relief(More)
PATIENTS AND METHODS Three hundred patients admitted to a rheumatology department (mean age, 49.2+/-15.5 years) and 100 nurses working in the same teaching hospital (mean age, 36+/-8.6 years) completed a questionnaire on the placebo effect in the treatment of pain. RESULTS The patients believed that the percentages of subjects who responded occasionally(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Pilot study comparing the short-term efficacy on pain and functional impairment of nerve root sheath versus interspinous glucocorticoid injections in patients admitted to a French rheumatology department for disk-related sciatica or femoral neuralgia. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty patients with refractory nerve root pain (sciatica, n = 29;(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of a single intraarticular (IA) injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) for the treatment of hip osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS A multicenter, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial was conducted over 3 months. Patients (older than 30 years) with symptomatic hip OA (pain score of >40 mm on a visual(More)
OBJECTIVE To report on the outcome of 15 cases of pregnancies in women treated with anti-TNF drugs during conception or pregnancy METHODS French rheumatologists connecting to the web-site of CRI site: http://www.cri-net.com were asked to fill in a structured questionnaire reporting the outcome of pregnancy in women still treated by a TNF blocker at the(More)
Anorexia nervosa affects 0.5% to 1% of female adolescents. The course is chronic in 50% of cases, causing substantial bone loss with osteoporotic fractures after a few years of amenorrhea. This is probably an underestimated problem. The diagnosis of anorexia nervosa is readily missed, as illustrated by five cases reported herein. The five patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE Calcific tendonitis of rotator cuff is observed on plain radiographs in 10% of adults, but remains asymptomatic in half these cases. We looked for differences on ultrasound (US) and power Doppler findings between symptomatic and asymptomatic cases of shoulder calcific tendonitis. METHODS US was performed in 62 patients (81 shoulders) with(More)
