Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic, inflammatory rheumatic disease. The spine becomes rigid from the occiput to the sacrum, leading to a stooped position. This study aims at evaluating AS subjects gait alterations. Twenty-four subjects were evaluated: 12 normal and 12 pathologic in stabilized anti-TNF-alpha treatment (mean age 49.42 (10.47), 25.44 (3.19) and mean body mass index 55.75 (3.19), 23.73 (2.7), respectively). Physical examination and gait analysis were performed. A motion… Expand
The gait deviations of ankylosing spondylitis with hip involvement
TLDR
The gait deviations in ankylosing spondylitis patients with hip involvement demonstrated statistically significant alterations regarding the kinematic and kinetic gait parameters for the patients included in the sample. Expand
Biomechanical assessment of balance and posture in subjects with ankylosing spondylitis
TLDR
The findings confirm the need to investigate both balance and posture in ankylosing spondylitis subjects and could help clinicians to plan rehabilitation treatments. Expand
of Kyphosis from Severe Ankylosing Spondylitis Clinical Gait Analysis on a Patient Undergoing Surgical Correction
Background Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease primarily affecting the axial skeleton, including the sacroiliac joints, costovertebral joints, and the spine. Patients withExpand
Clinical Gait Analysis on a Patient Undergoing Surgical Correction of Kyphosis from Severe Ankylosing Spondylitis
TLDR
Surgical correction of spinal alignment improved spine function and efficiency and changes in gait abnormality parameters observed imply that the patient used less energy to ambulate after surgery than before surgery. Expand
Ankylosing Spondylitis Increases Perioperative and Postoperative Complications After Total Hip Arthroplasty.
TLDR
Patients with AS are at increased risk for complications after THA, and these patients may require increased preoperative medical optimization as well as possible changes in component selection and position to compensate for altered spinopelvic biomechanics. Expand
Biomechanical Gait Assessment on a Patient Undergoing Surgical Correction of Kyphosis from Severe Ankylosing Spondylitis: A Case Study
TLDR
Surgical correction of spinal alignment improved spine function and efficiency in a patient with severe kyphosis from AS, and changes in gait abnormality parameters observed imply that the patient used less energy to ambulate after surgery than before surgery. Expand
Ankilozan Spondilit Hastalarinda Lumbo-Sakral Açi Plantar Yüklenme Paterniyle İlişkili mi? Is Lumbo-Sacral Angle Related to Plantar Loading Patterns in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis?
TLDR
It is suggested that foot joints may contribute to the compensation mechanism against the postural changes in patients with AS, statically and dynamically. Expand
Axial Spondyloarthritis is associated with changes in lumbosacral loading during daily activities.
TLDR
The findings suggest that classification of patients into different movement profiles might be more interesting to clinically target specific loading adaptations related to pain and fear of movement. Expand
Plantar pressure distribution in patients with ankylosing spondylitis.
TLDR
Investigating the pedobarographic changes among ankylosing spondylitis patients tried to understand whether the alterations in the posture affect the plantar pressure distribution, especially during dynamic activities. Expand
Gait Characteristics in Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis: Protocol for a Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review will provide a synthesis and comprehensive evaluation of published studies on gait characteristics in patients with ankylosing spondylitis and help identify the likely relevant directions for future research. Expand

Dynamic postural balance in ankylosing spondylitis patients.
TLDR
Whether patients with ankylosing spondylitis have a poorer dynamic balance than normal subjects and to study the relationship between balance and posture is investigated, and the only clinically significant association was found between dynamic postural balance and TWD. Expand
Gait analysis in ankylosing spondylitis.
TLDR
The stride length was shorter in the patients with ankylosing spondylitis and the increased rigidity of the spine, which results in decreased shock absorption and consequently a more cautious gait pattern in the absence of clinically and radiologically detectable peripheral joint disease. Expand
[Muscle activation patterns and gait biomechanics in patients with ankylosing spondylitis].
TLDR
The patients with ankylosing spondylitis prefer therefore an eccentric contraction of the tibial anterior in comparison to a concentric contraction ofThe gastrocnemius medialis, "opting" for a gait strategy that confers greater stability but limited power. Expand
Spinal Position Sense and Disease Progression in Ankylosing Spondylitis: A Longitudinal Study
TLDR
Spinal position sense appears unaffected by disease progression in patients with mild AS, and longer follow-ups may help determine any association between disease-related postural change and spinal position sense in AS. Expand
Do patients with ankylosing spondylitis have poorer balance than normal subjects?
TLDR
A significant proportion of ankylosing spondylitis patients have poorer balance than normal subjects, and no significant relationships between balance and any of the quantitative descriptions of posture were demonstrated. Expand
Update on Spondyloarthropathies
TLDR
Study from western Europe indicate that ankylosing spondyloarthropathies in its full spectrum is much more common than previously realized, and its overall prevalence may be similar to that of rheumatoid arthritis (Table 4) (31-33). Expand
Ankylosing spondylitis: an overview
TLDR
Emerging biological therapies target the inflammatory processes underlying AS, and thus, may favourably alter the disease process, in addition to providing symptom relief. Expand
Biomechanical analysis of posture in patients with spinal kyphosis due to ankylosing spondylitis: a pilot study.
TLDR
The results suggest that the hip joints are at least no longer involved in balance control, which may imply that conservative therapy should focus on the prevention of restriction of thehip joints. Expand
A new approach to defining functional ability in ankylosing spondylitis: the development of the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index.
TLDR
The Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index satisfies the criteria required of a functional index: it is quick and easy to complete, is reliable and is sensitive to change across the whole spectrum of disease. Expand
Defining spinal mobility in ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The Bath AS Metrology Index.
TLDR
Five clinical measurements provide a composite index (BASMI) and define disease status in AS, which is quick, reproducible and sensitive to change across the disease spectrum. Expand
