Evaluation of the efficacy of granulocyte and monocyte adsorption apheresis on skin manifestation and joint symptoms of patients with pustulotic arthro-osteitis.

J Dermatol 2018 Dec 14. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

Department of Dermatology, Tokyo Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.

Pustulotic arthro-osteitis, occasionally complicated with palmoplantar pustulosis, affects patients' activities of daily living. Granulocyte and monocyte adsorption apheresis selectively removes activated granulocytes and monocytes by means of extracorporeal circulation. Although the efficacy of granulocyte and monocyte adsorption apheresis in the treatment of generalized pustular psoriasis has been proved, very few reports have assessed its efficacy in the treatment of palmoplantar pustulosis and pustulotic arthro-osteitis.

Acutely infected teeth: to extract or not to extract?

Braz Oral Res 2018 Dec 6;32:e124. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Necmettin Erbakan University, Faculty of Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Konya, Turkey.

Not only laymen but also dentists generally believe that extraction of acutely infected teeth should be avoided until the infection subdues by using systemic antibiotics. The aim of this study was to compare perioperative complications in routine extractions of acutely infected teeth with extractions of asymptomatic teeth. This prospective study was performed with 82 patients. Read More

Osteitis is associated with dysregulated pro-osteoblastic activity in patients with nasal polyps.

Laryngoscope 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

From the Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

Objectives/hypothesis: The overlying inflammatory mucosa plays a crucial role in the initiation of osteitis; however, the molecular mechanism is unclear. The objective of this study was to explore the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) pathway and to correlate the expression of key signaling molecules with the degree of osteitis in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP).

The Early Phases of Ankylosing Spondylitis: Emerging Insights From Clinical and Basic Science.

Front Immunol 2018 16;9:2668. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Section of Musculoskeletal Disease, Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Leeds, NIHR Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit, Chapel Allerton Hospital, Leeds, United Kingdom.

In our paper, we discuss how the early phases of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are linked to peri-firbocartilagenous osteitis in the sacroiliac joint and entheseal bone related anchoring sites. This skeletal proclivity is linked to an abnormal immunological response to skeletal biomechanical stress and associated microdamage. A key event in the early stages of AS appears to be the association with subclinical Crohn's-like colitis with this gut inflammation being pivotal to the osteitis reaction. Read More

Institut für Diagnostische und Interventionelle Radiologie, Kinder- und Neuroradiologie, Universitätsklinikum, Schillingallee 35, Rostock, 18057, Deutschland.

Clinical/methodical Issue: Osteitis pubis is one of the most common causes of chronic groin pain in many professional athletes. Symphysitis pubis with instability of the joint due to softening of the joint capsule and muscular imbalance of the corresponding muscles increases the instability of the sympyseal region, thus, resulting in a vicious cycle.

The two most common entities among generally rare but under-diagnosed autoinflammatory bone disorders are chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome. Due to their similarities, many authors consider CRMO to be a subtype of SAPHO syndrome. The aim of this study was to compare clinical, laboratory, and imaging features and outcomes of patients with CRMO and SAPHO. Read More

Imaging of axial spondyloarthritis. New aspects and differential diagnoses.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2018 Sep-Oct;36 Suppl 114(5):35-42. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Rheumazentrum Ruhrgebiet, Herne, Germany.

Axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) is a chronic rheumatic disease characterised by inflammatory back pain and several other disease manifestations and comorbidities. The 2009 ASAS classification criteria differentiate between the classical ankylosing spondylitis or radiographic axSpA and non-radiographic axSpA based on the presence or absence of definite radiographic changes in the sacroiliac joints. Importantly, back pain in patients with axSpA may well have reasons other than axial inflammation or new bone formation. Read More

Background: Unilateral, mucopurulent drainage from an isolated paranasal sinus may be encountered in patients with a history of surgery for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Static mucus is visualized on nasal endoscopy within the sinus lumen but without significant disease in the adjacent sinuses. The reasons for this phenomenon are unknown although an iatrogenic cause is proposed. Read More

High prevalence of bacteria in clinically aseptic non-unions of the tibia and the femur in tissue biopsies.

Department of Traumatology and Orthopedic Surgery, Cologne-Merheim Medical Center (CMMC), University Witten-Herdecke (UWH), Ostmerheimerstr. 200, 51109, Cologne, Germany.

Purpose: There are several hints that bacterial colonization might be an often overseen cause of non-union. Modern procedures like PCR have been reported to diagnose bacterial colonization with a high degree of accuracy. While PCR is not ubiquitously available, we hypothesize that biopsies from the non-union site are comparable to PCR results reported in the literature. Read More

Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, School of Public Health, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Background: Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination is a widely-used public health intervention for tuberculosis (TB) control. In Taiwan, like other intermediate TB burden settings, steadily declining TB incidence raises important questions on whether universal BCG vaccination should be discontinued. Recent surveys on adverse events following immunisation, such as BCG-induced osteomyelitis/osteitis, also suggest a need to re-evaluate the vaccination programme. Read More

Clinic for Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery, Center for Orthopedics, Trauma Surgery and Spinal Cord Injury, Heidelberg University Hospital, Schlierbacher Landstrasse 200a, 69118, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: Bone infections due to trauma and subsequent delayed or impaired fracture healing represent a great challenge in orthopedics and trauma surgery. The prevalence of such bacterial infection-related types of delayed non-union is high in complex fractures, particularly in open fractures with additional extensive soft-tissue damage. The aim of this study was to establish a rat model of delayed osseous union secondary to bacterial osteitis and investigate the impact of rhBMP-7 and rhBMP-2 on fracture healing in the situation of an ongoing infection.
