Each intervention had its own
Ultrasound-Guided Genicular Nerve Block for KneeOsteoarthritis: A Double-Blind, Randomized Controlled Trial of Local Anesthetic Alone or in Combination with Corticosteroid Recently, several studies suggested that radiofrequency (RF) ablation of the genicular nerves is a safe and effective therapeutic procedure for intractable pain associated with chronic kneeosteoarthritis (OA). Diagnostic genicular nerve block (GNB) with local anesthetic has been generally conducted before making decisions (...) regarding RF ablation. Although GNB has been recently performed together with corticosteroid, the analgesic effects of corticosteroids for treating chronic pain remain controversial.The current study aims to assess the effects of combining corticosteroids and local anesthesia during ultrasound-guided GNB in patients with chronic knee OA.A randomized, double-blinded institutional study.This study took place at Asan Medical Center in Seoul, Korea.Forty-eight patients with chronic kneeOA were randomly
Intra-articular ozone or hyaluronic acid injection: Which one is superior in patients with kneeosteoarthritis? A 6-month randomized clinical trial Kneeosteoarthritis (OA) is a common disease, imposing a great burden through pain and decreased function. There are many therapeutic modalities including non-pharmacologic choices and oral, topical, and intra-articular medications. New studies have shown promising results for ozone application in kneeOA. Our aim was to compare the effects of ozone (...) therapy versus hyaluronic acid (HA) intra-articular injection in kneeOA patients.In this randomized clinical trial, a total of 174 patients with more than 3 months of chronic pain or swelling in the kneejoints along with consistent imaging findings were enrolled and randomly allocated into two groups of HA and ozone, which were planned to undergo 3 weekly injections of HA (Hyalgan®) and 10 mL of a 30 μg/mL ozone solution, respectively. Patients were evaluated at baseline and 6 months after the last
Growth Factors Levels Determine Efficacy of Platelets Rich Plasma Injection in KneeOsteoarthritis: A Randomized Double Blind Noninferiority Trial Compared With Viscosupplementation To assess the noninferiority of a single platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection compared with hyaluronic acid (HA), to alleviate pain and enhance functional capacity in kneeosteoarthritis, and identify biological characteristics of PRP that may affect their efficacy.Fifty-four patients with symptomatic knee (...) osteoarthritis received a single injection of either PRP (26 patients) or HA (28 patients). They were assessed at baseline and at 1, 3, and 6 months. The primary endpoint was the change in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC) score at 3 months, and secondary endpoints were responders' rate (improvement of at least 5 points or 40% of WOMAC total score at 3 months) of pain evaluation and patient's subjective satisfaction. Cell counts and the contents of vascular endothelial growth
Mucoid degeneration of the cruciate ligaments in osteoarthritis under primary total knee arthroplasty Mucoid degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) with osteoarthritis is rarely reported. We experienced two knee osteoarthritic patients who had symptomatic mucoid degeneration of their ACL, and their PCL was also diagnosed as mucoid degeneration in histological evaluation. Preoperative radiological evaluation could not reveal precisely whether (...) the degeneration had extended to the PCL. We obtained good clinical results treating them with posterior-stabilized (PS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) sacrificing both ligaments. In cases of osteoarthritis with mucoid degenerated ACL, PS TKA should be considered, sacrificing both cruciate ligaments, because mucoid degeneration might expand both cruciate ligaments.
