164. Increasing prevalence of knee pain and symptomatic knee osteoarthritis: survey and cohort data.

Increasing prevalence of knee pain and symptomatic knee osteoarthritis: survey and cohort data. BACKGROUND: A recent surge in knee replacements is assumed to be due to aging and increased obesity of the U.S. population. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether age, obesity, and change in radiographic knee osteoarthritis explain the trend in knee pain and osteoarthritis. DESIGN: Cross-sectional, using data from 6 NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) surveys between 1971 and 2004 (...) and from 3 examination periods in the FOA (Framingham Osteoarthritis) Study between 1983 through 2005. SETTING: U.S. population. PARTICIPANTS: NHANES participants (white or African American; aged 60 to 74 years) and FOA Study participants (mostly white; aged ≥70 years) were included. MEASUREMENTS: NHANES participants were asked about pain in or around the knee on most days. In the FOA Study, participants were asked about knee pain and had bilateral weight-bearing anteroposterior knee radiography to

This was a 12-year retrospective cohort study undertaken in the general (...) population in Nottingham, UK. Baseline risk factors were collected by questionnaire. Incident radiographic knee OA was defined by Kellgren and Lawrence (KL) score ≥2. Incident symptomatic knee OA was defined by KL ≥2 plus knee pain. Progression of knee OA was defined by KL ≥1 grade increase from baseline. A logistic regression model was used for prediction. Calibration and discrimination of the models were tested in the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) population and Genetics of Osteoarthritis and

172. Doxycycline ineffective for osteoarthritis of the knee or hip

Doxycycline ineffective for osteoarthritis of the knee or hip PEARLS Practical Evidence About Real Life Situations PEARLS are succinct summaries of Cochrane Systematic Reviews for primary care practitioners. They Doxycycline ineffective for osteoarthritis of the knee or hip Clinical question How effective is doxycycline for osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee or hip? Bottom line Compared to placebo, there is minimal or no symptomatic benefit (pain reduction and improved physical function (...) ) with doxycycline treatment. The small benefit observed in joint space narrowing is of questionable clinical relevance and outweighed by safety issues. Doxycycline should therefore not be recommended for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. Caveat The trial was designed to detect differences in joint space narrowing rather than differences in clinical outcomes. No threshold for the level of knee pain was used for inclusion and the average level of knee pain was low at baseline, leaving little

All cause and disease specific mortality in patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis: population based cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To examine all cause and disease specific mortality in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. DESIGN: Population based cohort study. SETTING: General practices in the southwest of England. PARTICIPANTS: 1163 patients aged 35 years or over with symptoms and radiological confirmation of osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Age and sex (...) standardised mortality ratios and multivariable hazard ratios of death after a median of 14 years' follow-up. RESULTS: Patients with osteoarthritis had excess all cause mortality compared with the general population (standardised mortality ratio 1.55, 95% confidence interval 1.41 to 1.70). Excess mortality was observed for all disease specific causes of death but was particularly pronounced for cardiovascular (standardised mortality ratio 1.71, 1.49 to 1.98) and dementia associated mortality (1.99, 1.22
