What Patient-related Factors are Associated with an Increased Risk of Surgery in Patients with Stenosing Tenosynovitis? A Prospective Study.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019 Aug;477(8):1879-1888

A.D. Sobel, A.E.M. Eltorei, B. Weiss, A-P C. Weiss, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Brown University, Providence, RI, USA P.K. Mansuripur, Permanente Medical Group, Napa-Solano, Vallejo, CA, USA.

Background: Numerous patient-related risk factors have been identified as contributors to patient progression to operative treatment of stenosing tenosynovitis (STS). Identifying patients most at risk of undergoing surgery after receiving a corticosteroid injection would enable health care providers to identify patients most likely to benefit from nonsurgical treatment.

Questions/purposes: (1) What proportion of prospectively enrolled patients with a new diagnosis of STS did not require further intervention after a first, second, or third injection when offered up to three corticosteroid injections? (2) Which identifiable risk factors present at the initial evaluation in patients with STS are associated with the patient opting for surgical release after a trial of one, two, or three corticosteroid injections?

Methods: One hundred ninety-six patients with a presumed diagnosis of STS were evaluated between March 2014 and June 2015, and 160 patients with 186 affected fingers were prospectively enrolled after a new diagnosis of STS was made during the study period. Read More

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Intra-articular hyaluronic acid (HA) is widely used to treat symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) in the carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) of the thumb. However, although apparently effective and relatively safe, intra-articular HA injections act relatively slowly. Therefore, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug could be added for more prompt pain relief. Read More

Platelet-Rich Plasma versus Corticosteroid Intra-Articular Injections for the Treatment of Trapeziometacarpal Arthritis: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.

Cartilage 2018 Oct 20:1947603518805230. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

1 2nd Orthopaedic Department, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Konstantopoulio Hospital of Nea Ionia "Agia Olga", Athens, Greece.

Various systematic reviews have recently shown that intra-articular platelet-rich plasma (IA-PRP) can lead to symptomatic relief of knee osteoarthritis for up to 12 months. There exist limited data on its use in small joints, such as the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMJ) or carpometacarpal joint (CMCJ) of the thumb. A prospective, randomized, blind, controlled, clinical trial of 33 patients with clinical and radiographic osteoarthritis of the TMJ (grades: I-III according to the Eaton and Littler classification) was conducted.

Thumb Basal Joint Arthritis.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Aug;26(16):562-571

From University Orthopedics and the Department of Orthopaedics, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University (Dr. Weiss), and the Department of Orthopaedics, Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI (Dr. Goodman).

The thumb basal joint is the second most common site of osteoarthritis in the hand, and osteoarthritis of this joint can contribute to painful movement and debilitating function. To achieve a high degree of prehensile and manipulative function, this highly mobile joint is constrained by both the saddle morphology of the trapezium and a stout complement of ligamentous constraints. The disease proceeds progressively with several wear patterns. Read More
