An Algorithmic Approach to the Suspected Septic Wrist.

Ann Plast Surg 2017 Jun;78(6):659-662

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, Winston-Salem, NC.

An acutely painful, erythematous wrist can be due to a variety of pathologic processes, including crystalline arthropathy, infection, trauma, osteoarthritis, and systemic disease. The broad differential diagnosis of the inflamed wrist and nonspecific clinical findings make accurate diagnosis challenging. There is no published clinical or laboratory criterion that reliably differentiates septic wrist arthritis from a sterile inflammatory arthropathy. Read More

Erosive osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis and pseudogout; a casual association?

Clin Rheumatol 2016 Jul 2;35(7):1885-9. Epub 2015 Apr 2.

Rheumatology Unit, Department of Medicine DIMED, University of Padua, Via Giustiniani, 2, 35128, Padova, Italy.

According to recent hypothesis, the inflammation has a pivotal role in the onset and progression of erosive hand osteoarthritis (EHOA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and chondrocalcinosis (CC)/pseudogout. Albeit, it has been recognised for years as an association between EHOA and radiographic evidence of CC, but there are few reports of coexistence of microcrystalline arthritis and PsA. This is the first report that described a clinical experience concerning two consecutive cases of patients presented with EHOA, PsA and pseudogout. Read More

Virtual rheumatology: using simulators and a formal workshop to teach medical students, internal medicine residents, and rheumatology subspecialty residents arthrocentesis.

J Clin Rheumatol 2011 Apr;17(3):121-3

James A. Haley Veterans Administration, FL, USA.

Background: Arthrocentesis is an important skill for medical practitioners at all levels of training. Previous studies have indicated a low comfort level and performance of arthrocentesis among primary care physicians that could be improved with hands-on training.

Objectives: The objective of this study was to improve comfort with knee and shoulder arthrocentesis at all levels of medical training, including medical students, internal medicine residents, and rheumatology subspecialty residents, and in arthrocentesis of the elbow, wrist, and ankle for advanced subspecialty residents in rheumatology through the use of a formal workshop using simulators.

Monarthritis: differential diagnosis.

Authors:
K Sack

Am J Med 1997 Jan;102(1A):30S-34S

Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco 94143-0326, USA.

Acute monarthritis should be regarded as infectious until proved otherwise. Early evaluation is crucial because of the capacity of some infectious agents to destroy cartilage rapidly. The history and physical examination can provide highly suggestive clues, but a definitive diagnosis may depend on arthrocentesis and analysis of synovial fluid. Read More

Arthrocentesis.

J Fam Pract 1985 Feb;20(2):179-84

Aspiration of the synovial joints is an important part of the diagnostic and therapeutic armamentarium of the physician and may provide vital information that can be obtained in no other way. As with any other technique in medicine, skill and safety in the aspiration of joints can be acquired only through careful study and continued practice in arthrocentesis. When appropriate preparations and precautions are observed, obtaining fluid from synovial joints is safe, relatively pain free, inexpensive, and extremely beneficial to the patient. Read More

Complications of local corticosteroid injections.

JAMA 1980 Apr;243(15):1547-8

Unusual complications associated with local microcrystalline corticosteroid injections were observed in four patients with diverse rheumatic disorders. Adverse reactions included (1) bilateral digital flexor tendon rupture following carpal tunnel injection for idiopathic median nerve compression syndrome; (2) bowstring deformity of a finger after local corticosteroid treatment of psoriatic digital flexor tendonitis; (3) carpal tunnel infection following dorsal arthrocentesis of a wrist in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis; and (4) pronounced flushing of the face, neck, and chest after intrasynovial corticosteroid injection in a patient with psoriasis and arthritis. This article considers some physiologic actions of corticosteroids possibly responsible for development of these untoward effects. Read More
