1. Synovial fluid proteome changes in ACL injury-induced posttraumatic osteoarthritis: Proteomics analysis of porcine knee synovial fluid. (Full text)

Synovial fluid proteome changes in ACL injury-induced posttraumatic osteoarthritis: Proteomics analysis of porcine knee synovial fluid. Surgical transection of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the porcine model leads to posttraumatic osteoarthritis if left untreated. However, a recently developed surgical treatment, bridge-enhanced ACL repair, prevents further cartilage damage. Since the synovial fluid bathes all the intrinsic structures of knee, we reasoned that a comparative analysis (...) of synovial fluid protein contents could help to better understand the observed chondroprotective effects of the bridge-enhanced ACL repair. We hypothesized that post-surgical changes in the synovial fluid proteome would be different in the untreated and repaired knees, and those changes would correlate with the degree of cartilage damage. Thirty adolescent Yucatan mini-pigs underwent unilateral ACL transection and were randomly assigned to either no further treatment (ACLT, n = 14) or bridge-enhanced ACL

4. Synovial fluid-derived synovial fragments represent an improved source of synovial mesenchymal stem cells in the temporomandibular joint (Full text)

Synovial fluid-derived synovial fragments represent an improved source of synovial mesenchymal stem cells in the temporomandibular joint Surgery-obtained synovium specimens (SSSs) can provide a source of synovial mesenchymal stem cells (SMSCs) for experimental studies. However, these specimens contain diverse tissues, including the intima and subintima; therefore, these SMSCs are not entirely derived from the intima and their cell source is heterogeneous. The present study isolated synovial (...) fragments (SFs) from synovial fluid dilutions extracted from patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) osteoarthrosis. Unlike SSSs, SFs, which are membranous and translucent, consist of only several cell layers, indicating the presence of only the intima. In the present study, SF cells (SFCs) and SSS cells (SSSCs) exhibited a homogeneous, fibroblast‑like, spindle‑shaped morphology after passaging in vitro. Furthermore, both cell types exhibited similar proliferative and differentiation potentials

7. Increased cytokine levels and histological changes in cartilage, synovial cells and synovial fluid after malleolar fractures. (PubMed)

Increased cytokine levels and histological changes in cartilage, synovial cells and synovial fluid after malleolar fractures. Malleolar fractures are among the most common fractures in the human skeleton with a high risk of later development of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA). The acute ankle injury initiates a sequence of events potentially leading to progressive articular surface damage resulting from inflammatory changes in cartilage, synovial tissue and synovial fluid. We hypothesised (...) that in the acute phase of ankle fracture, these changes occur at the same time in the different tissues.Specimens of chondral tissue, synovial tissue and synovial fluid were collected from 16 patients with acute articular ankle fracture (study group). Additional samples were obtained from five male fresh cadavers within 12 hours of death (control group). Chondral tissue was assessed for cellularity, irregularities and chondrocyte disarray. Synovial tissue was assessed for synovitis, proteoglycans and collagen

10. Ultrasound measurement of knee synovial fluid during external pneumatic compression. (PubMed)

Ultrasound measurement of knee synovial fluid during external pneumatic compression. Synovial fluid based biomarker research has been limited by the small volumes of synovial fluid from the knees of some patients. We used ultrasound (US) to determine if synovial fluid could be displaced into an access port during pneumatic compression to 100 mmHg. Forty knees from 37 consecutive arthritis patients with rheumatoid arthritis -25, osteoarthritis -8, psoriatic arthritis -2, and 1 each with systemic (...) with a 2.5-3.5 fold increase in fluid area and a 2-3 fold increase in fluid depth after inflation, p < 0.001. Statement of clinical significance: External pneumatic compression to the knee provides a larger volume of synovial fluid under positive pressure which should allow investigators to achieve greater success in obtaining synovial fluid during arthrocentesis for biomarker research or provide more precise therapeutic injections than traditional non image-guided anatomical landmark-based techniques. ©

11. Synovial Fluid Viscosity Test is Promising for the Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infection. (PubMed)

Synovial Fluid Viscosity Test is Promising for the Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infection. So far there is no "gold standard" test for the diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), compelling clinicians to rely on several serological and synovial fluid tests with no 100% accuracy. Synovial fluid viscosity is one of the parameters defining the rheology properties of synovial fluid. We hypothesized that patients with PJI may have a different level of synovial fluid viscosity (...) and aimed to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of synovial fluid viscosity in detecting PJI.This prospective study was initiated to enroll patients undergoing primary and revision arthroplasty. Our cohort consisted of 45 patients undergoing revision for PJI (n = 15), revision for aseptic failure (n = 15), and primary arthroplasty (n = 15). PJI was defined using the Musculoskeletal Infection Society criteria. In all patients, synovial fluid viscosity, C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte

13. Association between periprosthetic tissue metal content, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion levels and histopathological findings in patients with failed metal-on-metal hip replacement. (Full text)

Association between periprosthetic tissue metal content, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion levels and histopathological findings in patients with failed metal-on-metal hip replacement. Adverse Reaction to Metal Debris (ARMD) is a major cause of implant failure leading to revision surgery in patients with metal-on-metal (MoM) hip arthroplasties. However, the pathogenesis and its association to implant wear are poorly understood and previous studies have yielded discrepant results. We (...) sought to investigate the associations between histological findings, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion concentrations and periprosthetic tissue metal concentrations in patients with MoM total hip replacements and hip resurfacings revised for ARMD. 107 hips in total were included in our study. Of these, 87 were total hip replacements and 20 were hip resurfacings, respectively. We found that whole blood, synovial fluid and periprosthetic tissue metal concentrations correlated poorly
