Arthroscopic surgery for degenerative knee

The most frequent indication for knee arthroscopy is degenerative joint disease in middle aged and older patients. Each year, more than 700 000 knee arthroscopies are done in the United States and 150 000 in the United Kingdom.1 Magnetic resonance imaging evidence of meniscal abnormality, osteophytes, cartilage damage, and bone marrow lesions is often present. All these imaging abnormalities are common in the general population and are often asymptomatic.2 The evidence base for arthroscopic surgery is known to be weak, and a pressing need exists for more high quality multicentre randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses to inform clinicians and improve care for patients.3 Researchers have already reported that trials of arthroscopic surgery find no benefit over control interventions ranging from exercises to placebo surgery.4

How to use biologic agents in patients with rheumatoid arthritis who have comorbid disease

Although biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) have improved the quality of life of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, side effects remain a problem, especially for patients with pre-existing comorbidities. Randomized controlled trials of such drugs in rheumatoid arthritis typically exclude patients with comorbidities and are of short duration, so they do not provide data on adverse events in these people. Other data sources such as national bDMARD registries are limited by the preselection of patients for both conventional synthetic chemical compound disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (csDMARDs) and bDMARDs, and although these databases document comorbidity, they rarely report its severity. This too limits definitive statements on the progression or resolution of pre-existing disease. Although bDMARDs may not be contraindicated in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and certain comorbid diseases, additional assessments or precautions are recommended. This review summarizes current data on the use of bDMARDs in people with rheumatoid arthritis and common comorbid diseases. It provides an evidence base for doctors and their patients when discussing and selecting the appropriate bDMARDs.

Hip pain and radiographic signs of osteoarthritis

Hip pain is common, particularly among adults older than 50 years, and intuitively linked to osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis refers to a heterogeneous group of joint disorders characterised by progressive destruction of cartilage. Patients present with activity related joint pain and stiffness.1 2 Osteoarthritis can be classified as primary or secondary, but in practice and research the diagnosis is more often categorised as radiographic osteoarthritis, self reported osteoarthritis, or clinical (symptomatic) osteoarthritis. These designations have substantially different prevalences and incidences.2 3 4 Since osteoarthritis is a leading cause of pain and disability, we clearly need a better understanding of its epidemiology, and we need better methods for identifying patients at risk of the debilitating consequences of progressive limitations to daily life caused by symptomatic disease.1 2 5 6
