    Study findings confirm suspicions that patients with diabetes have an increased risk for adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder (ACS).

    Using insurance claims data for 96% of the Taiwanese population between 2000 and 2003, the researchers compared the incidence of ACS in 78,827 patients with at least ambulatory visits for diabetes and 236,481 age- and gender-matched individuals without diabetes.

    After a median of 31.87 months of follow-up, 1.20% of diabetes patients and 0.95% of controls were diagnosed with ACS, at rates of 4.92 and 3.67 cases per 1000 person-years, respectively, say Shin-Liang Pan (National Taiwan University Hospital and National Taiwan University College of Medicine, Taipei) and co-workers.

  • More magnesium, less arthritis

    What you put in your body can affect your risk of disease, even your risk
    of osteoarthritis. If you’re trying to prevent this “wear-and-tear” type of
    arthritis, you may want to eat more almonds and spinach.

    Eating more magnesium – a mineral found in many green vegetables, beans and
    nuts – it may lower the risk of knee osteoarthritis.

  • MRI may spot arthritis unseen by X-ray

    Osteoarthritis happens when joints and joint tissues wear down over time.
    Usually, doctors use X-ray imaging to see this joint damage. But another
    imaging technique may give doctors a better picture.

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) spotted many signs of knee osteoarthritis
    in patients that had no signs of knee osteoarthritis in X-ray images.

  • Cartilage made from stem cells

    Using pluripotent stem cells, a team of Duke Medicine researchers has
    engineered cartilage. The findings suggest that induced pluripotent stem
    cells (iPSCs) may be a viable source of patient-specific articular
    cartilage tissue.

  • Tissue repair evolves: Cartilage transplants now for the shoulder

    Source: Science Centric

    Rush University Medical Centre is the only hospital in Illinois – and one
    of only a few nationwide – using cartilage transplants to repair damaged
    shoulder joints.

    Conservative treatment for cartilage defects in the shoulder, as for any
    joint, includes physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and
    steroid injections. If these treatments are ineffective, arthroscopy, which
    involves removing scar tissue and loose pieces of cartilage through a small
    incision, has traditionally been the alternative of choice. But arthroscopy
    often provides only temporary relief, since the underlying damage to the
    cartilage is not corrected.
