Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found in high concentrations in cartilage and synovial fluid, and is an important component of the extracellular matrixes-exerting joint lubrication and buffering actions thanks to its viscoelastic properties. The present study examines the scientific evidence found in the current literature on the usefulness of the intraarticular ...

Treatment of painful internal snapping hip (coxa saltans) via arthroscopic lengthening or release of the iliopsoas tendon is becoming preferred over open techniques because of the benefits of minimal dissection, the ability to address concomitant intraarticular disorders, and a low complication rate. Persistent snapping after release is uncommon, especially when ...

Lateral sided snapping elbow is an unusual condition, and it is apt to be misdiagnosed as lateral epicondylitis. The causes of lateral sided snapping elbow have been attributed to intraarticular loose bodies, instability, synovial plicae and torn annular ligament. We report our experiences for treating lateral sided snapping elbow caused ...

Synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a rare lesion characterized by the presence of loose bodies in the glenoid fossa. Swelling, unilateral pain, occlusal changes, clicking, crepitation, deviation, and limited mandibular function are the most common characteristics, although this combination is not always apparent. Radiopacities of the TMJ ...

Primary synovial chondromatosis is an uncommon, benign entity involving the synovial lining of larger joints. In this metaplastic process, islands of chondrocytes are clustered throughout the synovium, forming nodules that jut into the joint cavity. Clinical manifestations include pain, swelling, and decreased range of motion of associated extremities. Synovial chondromatosis ...

Dislocation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) represents 3% of all reported dislocated joints. Traditionally, dislocation of the TMJ occurs when the mandibular condyle is displaced anteriorly beyond the articular eminence. Traumatic dislocation of the condyle into the middle cranial fossa is well defined in the literature, but posterior dislocation without ...

In the wheelchair propulsion literature, it is common to report upper-limb (UL) joint kinetics to express shoulder, elbow, and wrist loads. Choosing the appropriate kinetic resolution coordinate system (CS) for UL joint forces and moments has become a laboratory-specific process. The differences that arise during interpretation may hinder a clear ...

Congenital talonavicular coalition is reported less frequently than talocalcaneal or calcaneonavicular coalition and represent approximately 1% of all tarsal coalitions. Although reportedly transmitted as an autosomal-dominant disorder, tarsal coalition may be inherited as an autosomal-recessive trait. It has been associated with various orthopaedic anomalies, including symphalangism, clinodactyly, a great toe ...
