The most frequent site of osteoarthritis (OA) is the hands, but the pattern of hand OA development remains controversial. Understanding these patterns may assist in evaluating biological aging, determining etiology, and proposing ways of preventing hand OA. We investigated the pattern distribution of OA in hands and the influences of age, sex, and handedness on its development. The study population was comprised of Chuvashians (660 males age 18–89 years and 585 females age 18–90 years). OA… Expand
Prevalence, pattern and determinants of radiographic hand osteoarthritis in Turkmen community-based sample
TLDR
It is found that females with severe obesity have higher risk of development of hand OA than those with normal weight and that the best-fitted and most parsimonious model of association between age and number of affected hand joints was a two interval linear one. Expand
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. Expand
Repeated measurement study of hand osteoarthritis in an apparently healthy Caucasian population
TLDR
A longitudinal, 8‐year follow-up study to evaluate the rate of hand osteoarthritis progression in men and women found high and statistically significant correlations between initial and repeated OA scores but no association between the rates of hand OA progression and anthropometric features, life‐style factors, or familial effects. Expand
Prevalence and pattern of radiographic hand osteoarthritis and association with pain and disability (the Rotterdam study).
TLDR
There is a modest to weak association between ROA of the hand and hand pain/disability, varying with the site of involvement. Expand
Hand osteoarthritis in Chuvashian population: prevalence and determinants
TLDR
Evaluating the prevalence of radiographic hand osteoarthritis in Chuvashian community-based sample and its associations with age, sex, body mass index (BMI), smoking, and alcohol consumption found no association was found between smoking and prevalence of hand OA. Expand
Hand osteoarthritis in the Abkhazian population.
TLDR
Different prevalences of radiographic hand OA were found in individuals from different villages, after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index (BMI) and place of residence. Expand
Radiographic hand osteoarthritis: patterns and associations with hand pain and function in a community-dwelling sample.
TLDR
Individual thumb joints can be clustered together as a joint group in ROA, and four radiographic sub-groups of hand OA can be distinguished. Expand
Prevalence, pattern and determinants of radiographic hand osteoarthritis in five Russian community-based samples.
TLDR
Evaluating the prevalence and pattern of radiographic hand osteoarthritis and its association with age, sex, body mass index (BMI), and place of residence in five Russian community-based samples found significant differences in prevalence and severity of hand OA were found. Expand
The effect of radiological hand osteoarthritis on hand function
TLDR
The results suggest that there is a lack of association between radiological hand OA and Jebsen test and objective hand functions like grip and pinch strength, but the patients with radiologicalHand OA have restrictions in the self-reported functional limitation test. Expand
Natural history of radiographic features of hand osteoarthritis over 10 years.
TLDR
In subjects with prior meniscectomy, CMC1, DIP, and IP1 joint OA is common, however, further hand OA progression over 10 years, as detected by plain radiography, is relatively modest. Expand

Patterns of joint involvement in osteoarthritis of the hand: the Chingford Study.
TLDR
These data provide clear evidence for a polyarticular subset of hand OA in women, which is substantially greater than the corresponding risk for proximal interphalangeal joint involvement and symmetry was the strongest determinant of pattern. Expand
Radiographic hand osteoarthritis: incidence, patterns, and influence of pre-existing disease in a population based sample.
TLDR
Describing information on incidence of radiographic hand OA should generate new hypotheses about why OA affects hands in particular patterns, and baseline OA in a joint in a ray similarly increased risk in that ray. Expand
Generalized osteoarthritis in women: pattern of joint involvement and approaches to definition for epidemiological studies.
TLDR
There is a clear tendency towards polyarticular OA among women aged 45-64 years, and there is no single threshold number of joint sites that can be used to define GOA. Expand
Osteoarthritis of the hand: age-specific joint-digit prevalence rates.
TLDR
The left hand of each of 903 white males, most of them well-educated professionals, was evaluated for osteoarthritis, in the ongoing Baltimore Longitudinal Study of the Gerontology Research Center, suggesting either a common etiology or that the presence of the disease in one joint enhances the development of osteoartritis in the other joint of the same digit. Expand
A longitudinal study of osteoarthritis of the hand: the effect of age.
TLDR
It is indicated that osteoarthritis in both the distal and proximal interphalangeal joints progresses at a faster rate in the older population than in individuals less than 60 years of age. Expand
Osteoarthritis in the hand: a comparison of handedness and hand use.
TLDR
In the study population, OA was not more prevalent in the dominant hand than in other studies, and no radiologic or clinical differences were found between the dominant and nondominant hands. Expand
Scintigraphic hand osteoarthritis (OA)--prevalence, joint distribution, and association with OA at other sites.
TLDR
Bone scintigraphy is valuable method in epidemiological studies of OA, with acceptable interreader reproducibility and relation to joint symptoms, and an association was seen between subchondral knee uptake and hand involvement, possibly indicating a difference in pathogenetic mechanisms among joints in OA. Expand
Symmetry and clustering of symptomatic hand osteoarthritis in elderly men and women: the Framingham Study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that symptomatic OA often affects multiple hand joints, and is more likely to cluster by row than by ray, and the disease also occurs in a remarkably symmetrical pattern, especially in women. Expand
Clinical, radiologic, demographic, and occupational aspects of hand osteoarthritis in the elderly.
TLDR
Hand OA was prevalent in elderly patients in the authors' elderly cohort, and its severity was influenced by inherent traits such as age, female gender, ethnicity, and handedness, while acquired factors such as workload, number of children, and associated diseases did not appear to influence OA expression.

Prevalence of symptomatic hand osteoarthritis and its impact on functional status among the elderly: The Framingham Study.
TLDR
It is suggested that symptomatic hand osteoarthritis is a common disease among elders and frequently impairs hand function. Expand
