Osteoarthritis (OA) is an incurable and progressive disorder of the joints involving degradation of the intra-articular
cartilage, joint lining, ligaments, and bone.
Following reports of three patients who developed septic arthritis after receiving intra-articular
injections for osteoarthritis knee pain at the same private outpatient facility, Kathleen M.
Close to 50% of patients with knee OA receive one or more intra-articular
corticosteroid injections within 5 years prior to undergoing total knee arthroplasty, compared with physical therapy in about 10% of patients, even though most guidelines rate both as first-line therapies, he noted at the meeting sponsored by the Osteoarthritis Research Society International.
corticosteroids provide sufficient pain relief by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis and controlling local inflammation by decrea-sing the activity of collagenase and other destructive enzymes11,12.
They were randomly assigned to injections of intra-articular
triamcinolone or a placebo.
PRP in a patient and reported improvements in shoulder movements, quality of life, and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) (5).
Although the association between intra-articular
pathologies and BCs is known, high recurrence levels have been reported when these pathologies were neglected during treatment [13, 14].
first used intra-articular
HA injection for hemophiliacs with arthropathy since 1994 and reported its good response in 2002. Following two studies also showed a similar result., However, the definite effect of intra-articular
HA injection for hemophilic arthropathy of the knee in current published studies are insufficiently proved because they enrolled small patient numbers and lack of controlled group.
The joint was injected with a combination of 250mg of streptomycin, 10mg of triamcinolone acetonide and 2.5ml of lignocaine (2%) added to distilled water so that the maximum volume of fluid injected was 5cc with 2cc intra-articular
and 3cc peri-articular deposition, especially at the pain trigger spot around the knee joint.
The symptoms depend on the location of the foreign body in the knee, since there are differences if the foreign body is seated in the joint cavity or at its recesses, inside the intra-articular
structures, or in the periarticular subcutaneous soft tissue.
Among their topics are intramedullary screw fixation of the metacarpals and phalanges of the hand, the role of arthroscopy in treating carpal fractures and non-unions, intra-articular
fractures of the proximal interphalangeal joint, the correction of mal-union in metacarpal and phalangeal fractures, and non-union of the scaphoid.
(IA) corticosteroid injection (IACI) is a very popular procedure for pain reduction in patients with OAK (2).
