  • What Are the Prognostic Factors for Radiographic Progression of Knee Osteoarthritis? A Meta-analysis. [Review]
    Clin Orthop Relat Res 2015; 473(9):2969-89Bastick AN, Belo JN, … Bierma-Zeinstra SM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Baseline knee pain, presence of Heberden nodes, varus alignment, and high levels of serum markers hyaluronic acid and tumor necrosis factor-α predict knee OA progression. Sex, knee injury, and quadriceps strength, among others, did not predict knee OA progression. Large variation remains in definitions of knee OA and knee OA progression. Clinical studies should use more consistent definitions of these factors to facilitate data pooling by future meta-analyses.
  • Arthritis of the thumb and digits: current concepts. [Review]
    Instr Course Lect 2015; 64:281-94Bernstein RA
  • Osteoarthritis of the hand continues to be a problem in an aging population and affects the proximal and distal interphalangeal, metacarpophalangeal, and carpometacarpal joints in the hands. Heberden nodes develop in the distal interphalangeal joints and typically present as a deformed and enlarged joint and can cause pain. Surgery rarely is necessary because functional difficulties are uncommon;…
  • [Symptoms. Localizations: knee, hip, hands, spine, other localizations]. [Journal Article]
    Aten Primaria 2014; 46 Suppl 1:11-7Pérez Martín Á
  • The symptoms of osteoarthritis vary widely from patient to patient, depending especially on the localization on the disease. There is a poor correlation between radiological involvement and pain. In general, symptom onset is gradual and symptoms increase slowly but progressively. The most commonly affected joints are the knees, hips, hands, and spine. The main signs and symptoms are pain, stiffne…
  • Erosive osteoarthritis: a current review of a clinical challenge. [Review]
    Clin Rheumatol 2010; 29(7):697-706Banks SE
  • Erosive osteoarthritis, a less common subtype of osteoarthritis, is often described as a more severe form. This combination of cartilage degeneration with pathologic features suggestive of inflammatory synovial changes generally manifests in women around the time of menopause and hormonal levels as well as genetics are thought to play a role in its onset. The hands are most often involved with th…
  • Do Heberden and Bouchard nodes affect finger dexterity in elderly? [Journal Article]
    Rheumatol Int 2010; 30(4):543-5Kitisomprayoonkul W, Promsopa K, Chaiwanichsiri D
  • Elderly often have Heberden nodes (HN) and Bouchard nodes (BN) that may affect finger dexterity. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to assess an effect of HN and BN on finger dexterity of the elderly. The nine-hole peg test was used for dexterity measurement in 200 elderly with HN and/or BN. Mean age was 68.6 +/- 5.39 years. Average performance of each hand was compared between elderly wit…
