The primary objectives of this study are to: 1) develop an educational tool known as the Patient Reported Outcome Measure informed Decision Aid (PROM-DA) that will describe the options for patients considering total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery, and help them imagine what to expect if they choose either option; 2) assess the extent that the PROM-DA improves patients decision quality; 3) determine the feasibility of a larger trial to test the PROM-DA in multiple sites and more patients.
The aim of our study was to assess the effectiveness of contemporary knee arthroplasty in working-age patients (< 65 years) by conducting a prospective cohort study with 2-year follow up. Outcomes were measured comprehensively using various patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) to provide information on the effect of knee arthroplasty on pain, satisfaction, physical activity, activities of daily living, and quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to generate proof of concept human data by evaluating osteoarthritis outcome measures in arthritic patients that are prescribed Forteo® as the standard of care to treat their primary diagnosis of osteoporosis.
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a chronic musculoskeletal disease, and a major cause of pain and disability worldwide. Exercise has previously demonstrated good effect in alleviating OA symptoms. However, optimal exercise modes in OA are currently unknown. This study seeks to evaluate the effects of supplementary focused, knee extensor strength training in addition to neuromuscular exercise (NEMEX) and education in people with OA of the knee as performed in Good Life with osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D ᵀᴹ). Through a randomized design, study participants will either be allocated to 12 weeks (twice weekly) of NEMEX and education or 12 weeks (twice weekly) of NEMEX and education and focused, knee extensor strength training. The primary outcome measurement for this study is the Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score, subscale Activities of Daily Living (KOOS-ADL), which is a self-reported questionnaire on daily life activities. Other outcomes include parameters of maximal muscle strength and muscle power, muscle imaging, physical function, pain and self-reported health status.
This is a prospective, multi-center study, designed to assess mid-term performance of the MOTO Medial® Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty (UKA), with patient report outcomes, clinical findings and radiographic analysis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of intra-articular injections of combined hyaluronic acid and platelet-rich plasma in knee degenerative joint disease in improving joint function and reducing pain.
Evaluation and comparison of histological analysis, 9,4 tesla MRI, Full-Field Optical Coherence Tomography (FFOCT) and ultrasound-based navigation system for cartilage degeneration analysis of patellofemoral joint.
The main objective of the study was to demonstrate the non-inferiority of the efficacy of a single intra-articular injection of OSTENIL PLUS compared to that of a single intra-articular injection of the reference product SYNVISC-ONE in the treatment of symptomatic tibiofemoral osteoarthritis. The primary endpoint was the change in mean score on the WOMAC pain scales from D0 to D180.
Glucosamine is an important part of the treatment strategy for osteoarthritis, but its effectiveness is still controversial. To explain the efficacy differences of glucosamine, in this study the investigators detect the concentration of glucosamine in the plasma and synovial fluid, some effect indexes such as inflammatory markers and gene polymorphism of glucosamine transporters. On the one hand, the investigators compare the plasma peak and gluten glucosamine concentration and the concentration in synovial fluid among participants to observe the individual differences of glucosamine exposure in vivo. On the other hand, the investigators investigate the correlation between drug concentrations, effect index and gene polymorphism. The hypothesis is that glucosamine exposure in vivo has individual differences and gene polymorphism can explain this differences.
This is a study to evaluate the Clinical Performance and Safety of a single intra-articular (i.a.) injection of hyaluronic acid product (as HL-01) in the treatment of pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.
