Evidence for the presence of synovial sheaths surrounding the extensor tendons at the metacarpophalangeal joints: a microscopy study.

Arthritis Res Ther 2022 Jun 24;24(1):154. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Anatomy & Embryology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

MRI-detected inflammation around the extensor tendons of metacarpophalangeal (MCP-) joints is prevalent in RA and poses a markedly increased risk of RA development when present in arthralgia patients. Such inflammation is called 'peritendinitis' since anatomy literature reports no presence of a tenosynovial sheath at these tendons. However, the presence or absence of tenosynovium at these extensor tendons has never been studied. Read More

ACPA-negative and ACPA-positive RA-patients achieving disease resolution demonstrate distinct patterns of MRI-detected joint-inflammation.

Rheumatology (Oxford) 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Rheumatology, Leiden University Medical Centre, Leiden, the Netherlands.

Objectives: Although sustained DMARD-free remission (SDFR; sustained absence of clinical-synovitis after DMARD-discontinuation) is increasingly achievable in RA, prevalence differs between ACPA-negative(40%) and ACPA-positive-RA(5-10%). Additionally, early DAS-remission (DAS4months<1.6) is associated with achieving SDFR in ACPA-negative, but not in ACPA-positive-RA. Read More

Localized tenosynovial giant cell tumor: a rare case of snapping hip.

Skeletal Radiol 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, AZ Sint-Blasius, Dendermonde, Belgium.

We report on a 40-year-old male with a 9-month-long history of snapping of his right hip caused by a previously undescribed etiology of internal extra-articular snapping hip, namely due to a localized tenosynovial giant cell tumor. Both dynamic ultrasound evaluation and MRI proved to be crucial in the diagnosis of this rare entity. Auto-provocation of the snapping showed an anterior hip mass moving posteriorly to the psoas tendon which elucidated the pain and clicking sensation. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging of musculoskeletal infections.

Pol J Radiol 2022 5;87:e141-e162. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Department of Radiology, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful imaging modality in the evaluation of musculoskeletal (MSK) soft tissue, joint, and bone infections. It allows prompt diagnosis and assessment of the extent of disease, which permits timely treatment to optimize long-term clinical outcomes. MRI is highly sensitive and specific in detecting the common findings of MSK infections, such as superficial and deep soft tissue oedema, joint, bursal and tendon sheath effusions, lymphadenopathy, bone marrow oedema, erosive bone changes and periostitis, and bone and cartilage destruction and sequestration.
