Techniques for Continuous Irrigation of Septic Joints of the Hand.

Tech Hand Up Extrem Surg 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.

Septic arthritis of the small joints of the hand usually occurs secondary to bacterial inoculation through penetrating injury to the joint, or direct spread of infection from paronychia, felon, or pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis. Surgical treatment involves drainage and irrigation and may involve debridement if there is an open wound. We describe a method of continuous irrigation of septic joints of the hand postoperatively in the ward setting using an intravenous cannula placed within the joint and connected to an intravenous giving set with delivery of physiological fluid using a pump driver.

Arthritis risk with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy for cancer.

Curr Opin Rheumatol 2019 May;31(3):293-299

Department of General Internal Medicine, Section of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review summarizes the current evidence on inflammatory arthritis following cancer treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), and the effects of these therapies in patients with preexisting autoimmune arthritis.

Recent Findings: As the use of ICI for cancer therapy continues to expand, a myriad of immune-related adverse events (irAE) caused by these therapies are being recognized. Arthritis has been increasingly reported as a de novo irAE, presenting sometimes as a well defined disorder, such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis, and in other occasions as undifferentiated monoarthritis, oligoarthritis, or polyarthritis.

Ultrasound imaging in rheumatoid arthritis.

Radiol Med 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Clinica Reumatologica, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ospedale "Carlo Urbani", Via Aldo Moro, 25, 60035, Jesi, Ancona, Italy.

Over the last decades, ultrasound (US) has undergone a dramatic evolution in the field of inflammatory joint diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is probably the pathology that has most benefited from this development, both in terms of early diagnosis and monitoring of disease activity. The RA-induced morpho-structural changes can be effectively detected and measured by US, and US findings represent an additional advantage over clinical and laboratory evaluation, showing the face of the disease (i.

Authors:
David A Rubin

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Jun 26;48(6):837-857. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Department of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, 510 South Kingshighway Blvd., St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Advanced imaging has become just as vital for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring disease in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients as it is for cancer patients. Part 1 of this review discussed synovitis, tenosynovitis, erosions, and osteitis-key imaging findings that occur in patients with RA. Part 2 will now show how these features, in combination with clinical and serologic data, can assist clinical decision-making at various stages of a patient's disease course. Read More

Radiographic Soft Tissue Thickness Differentiating Pyogenic Flexor Tenosynovitis From Other Finger Infections.

J Hand Surg Am 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, University of Washington, Harborview Medical Center, Seattle, WA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Characteristic swelling has been described as a differentiating sign of pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis (PFT) but has not been validated. We conducted a retrospective study of adults with finger infections to compare radiographic parameters of soft tissue dimensions. Our hypothesis was that in patients with digit infections, radiographic soft tissue thickness measurement would differ between PFT and non-PFT infected digits. Read More

MRI and ultrasound of the hands and wrists in rheumatoid arthritis. I. Imaging findings.

Authors:
David A Rubin

Skeletal Radiol 2019 May 23;48(5):677-695. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Department of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, 510 South Kingshighway Boulevard, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

The management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has rapidly evolved with the development of newer disease-modifying drugs and the recognition that long-term damage can be mitigated by an earlier and more-informed use of these medications. Historically, radiographs were the mainstay of imaging in RA patients, but radiographic joint narrowing and erosions are late and insensitive findings in the disease. MRI (with intravenous contrast agent) and ultrasound (with power Doppler interrogation) of the hands and wrists are able to demonstrate erosions earlier and with greater sensitivity than radiographs.

Acute Hand Infections.

Am Fam Physician 2019 Feb;99(4):228-236

U.S. Marine Corps School of Infantry-East, Camp Geiger, NC, USA.

Acute hand infections are often caused by puncture wounds and are generally classified into superficial or deep infections. Superficial infections occur in the skin and subcutaneous tissues, whereas deep infections can involve the tendon sheaths, adjacent anatomic compartments, deep fascial planes, bursae, joint spaces, and bones. Superficial hand infections are more common than deep infections and are typically managed with elevation, warm soaks, splinting in the position of function, analgesics, and empiric antibiotics when indicated.
