Ultrasound-guided intra-articular injection: efficacy of hyaluronic acid compared to glucocorticoid in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

Minerva Med 2019 Dec;110(6):515-523

Unit of Rheumatology, Department of General and Specialty Medicine, Città della Salute e della Scienza, Turin, Italy.

Background: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease which causes pain and functional impairment in adults over 50 years old with consequent important disability. Unfortunately, there is no definitive cure for OA, thus the approach is characterized by multiple treatments that can manage its symptoms. Even though data from randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses indicate that intra-articular hyaluronic acid (IAHA) offers the best benefit/risk balance among the various pharmacologic treatments to improve OA-related knee pain, there is a lack of agreement among national and international guidelines about such uses of IAHA for the medical management of symptomatic knee OA.

Injectable Corticosteroids: Take Precautions and Use Caution.

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2016 Nov 21;20(5):401-408. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

Radiology Department, Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Corticosteroids are routinely injected into soft tissues, tendon sheaths, bursae, and joints. These anti-inflammatory agents have different potency and solubility, and solubility is inversely correlated with the duration of action. Corticosteroids carry a low risk of complications but commonly cause systemic and local adverse effects. Read More

[Complex outpatient care to patients with osteoarthrosis and degenerative-dystrophic diseases of juxtaarticular soft tissues].

L A Saks

Voen Med Zh 2014 Apr;335(4):36-45

The aim of the article is an evaluation of effectiveness of the complex outpatient care to patients with osteoarthrosis and degenerative-dystrophic diseases ofjuxtaarticular soft tissues. Recent researches showed that the key factors of the pathogenesis of diseases were degenerative-dystrophic and inflammatory changes in the synovio-entheseal complex ofparaarticular muscles' tendon. 411 patients with osteoarthrosis of 531 synovial joints and degenerative-dystrophic diseases of periarticular soft tissues underwent sequential corticosteroid therapy combined with hyaluronic acid injections.

Successful injection of the acromioclavicular joint with use of ultrasound: anatomy, technique, and follow-up.

J Shoulder Elbow Surg 2014 Oct 13;23(10):e243-50. Epub 2014 Apr 13.

Radiology Department, Poriya Government Hospital, Tiberias, Israel.

Background: Injection into the acromioclavicular (AC) joint is often inaccurate (approximately 50%) even in experienced hands. In light of new anatomic observations, we evaluate accuracy of an innovative ultrasound-guided method and follow the clinical course of successful therapeutic injections.

Method: Relevant anatomy was investigated in 200 three-dimensional computed tomography scans, 100 magnetic resonance images, and 14 cadavers. Read More

[Steroid infiltrations in orthopedics].

Acta Ortop Mex 2011 Jan-Feb;25(1):12-6

Hospital CIMA de la Ciudad de Chihuahua, Chih., México.

For the past 60 years intraarticular infiltrations have been performed with variable results. However, they have improved with time as a result of the innovations seen in the techniques and the glucocorticoids used, according to reports by several authors. We report the experience and results obtained in 10 years in 793 patients applying 5 mg of betamethasone dipropionate and 2 mg of betamethasone sodium phosphate (Diprospan). Read More

Posterior approach for arthroscopic treatment of posterolateral impingement syndrome of the ankle in a top-level field hockey player.

Arthroscopy 2004 Apr;20(4):e15-21

Institute of Sports Medicine Frankfurt/Main, Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

A case history of a 25-year-old field hockey player, a member of the German National Field Hockey Team, is presented. The patient could not remember any specific ankle injury, but since the World Indoor Championship in February 2003, he experienced significant but diffuse pain around the posterior ankle, especially while loading the forefoot in hockey training and competition. For 2 months, the patient was unable to run. Read More

Common corticosteroid injections. An anatomical and evidence based review.

Aust Fam Physician 2000 Oct;29(10):922-6

Department of Medicine, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Victoria.

Background: The injection of depot corticosteroid preparations into soft tissues and joints has been used for some time to alleviate pain in a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. However the evidence, supporting the efficacy for these procedures, until recently, has been poor.

Objectives: To review the recent literature on the efficacy and toxicity of commonly used corticosteroid injections in musculoskeletal medicine and to illustrate the key anatomy of the injection sites. Read More

Arthritis Rheum 1998 Apr;41(4):736-9

Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota 55905, USA.

Objective: To determine the safety of joint or soft tissue aspirations and injections in patients taking warfarin sodium.

Methods: The outcome of 32 joint or soft tissue aspirations or injections in patients receiving stable doses of warfarin sodium was assessed through a standardized interview 4 weeks after the procedure.

A technique for the accurate administration of corticosteroids in the temporomandibular joint.

Dentomaxillofac Radiol 1993 Nov;22(4):211-3

Department of Oral Maxillofacial Radiology, University of Umeå, Sweden.

A new technique for intra-articular injection of a corticosteroid in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is presented. The corticosteroid is mixed with contrast medium and the administration visualized and controlled using fluoroscopy. When superior and inferior joint spaces have been filled and the soft tissues of the joint have been identified in the fluoroscopic image, additional corticosteroid can be administered to selected sites within the TMJ.

Corticosteroid injection for osteoarthritis of the knee: peripatellar compared to intra-articular route.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 1989 Nov-Dec;7(6):609-13

Department of Rheumatology, St. Vincent's Hospital, Darlinghurst, Australia.

Intra-articular injection of micro-crystalline corticosteroid is used to treat symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, but its duration of effect and efficacy are uncertain. From the observation that pain in OA of the knee can often be blocked by infiltration of the soft tissues at the patella margin with local anaesthetic, this study investigated an injection technique in which corticosteroid was infiltrated around the patella. Thirty-eight patients with radiologically demonstrable and painful OA of the knee were treated either with peripatellar or intra-articular methylprednisolone in a randomised double blind study.

Adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder: arthrographic diagnosis and treatment.

J A Loyd H M Loyd

South Med J 1983 Jul;76(7):879-83

Thirty-one patients (33 shoulders) had clinical adhesive capsulitis confirmed by arthrography and simultaneously treated by intra-articular injection of lidocaine and long-acting corticosteroid introduced with the contrast material during the examination. The routine arthrographic procedure was modified to include gentle passive manipulation of the joint while under the effect of the local anesthetic agent. The patients were instructed to continue exercises at home. Read More
