He has developed massive bilateral prepatellar bursitis from chronic and repetitive injury to the region bearing his body weight while ambulating. As the result of a protective response, the bursa provides a cushion for the underlying bone prominences of the tibial tubercle and patella. This compensatory mechanism has ... Read More »

45. Stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1, CXCL12) is increased in subacromial bursitis and downregulated by steroid and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents.
Match Strength: 8.248

Several studies have demonstrated that inflammation in the subacromial bursa is an important component in the pathogenesis of impingement syndrome. We have demonstrated in a previous study that many inflammatory cytokines, including stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1, CXCL12), are increased in the subacromial bursa [Blaine et al. 2005. J Shoulder Elbow Surg 14(Suppl 1):84S-89S]. SDF-1 is a potent chemotactic and angiogenic factor that stimulates recruitment of inflammatory cells. In the current study, we proposed that the resident cells in subacromial bursal tissue produce SDF-1, which can ... Read More »

46. Comparison of Clinical, Ultrasonographic, and Postoperative Macroscopic Findings in Cows With Bursitis
Match Strength: 8.148

Clinical, ultrasonographic, and macroscopic findings of bursitis in cows were compared to assess the contribution of diagnosis and therapy planning. Sixteen dairy cows with swelling at the carpal (n = 12) or tarsal (n = 4) region were examined clinically and ultrasonographically and the findings were compared. In 10 patients the bursae were removed in toto. According to the duration of the disease (history) and clinical findings nine and seven patients had acute and chronic bursitis, respectively. Six had fluctuation and in 10 the bursa was firm. Contents were serous (n = 3), serofibrinous (n ... Read More »

47. Diagnostic and therapeutic use of sonography-guided iliopsoas peritendinous injections.
Match Strength: 8.112

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to review our experience performing sonography-guided iliopsoas bursal/peritendinous injections as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool in the workup and treatment of patients with hip pain. CONCLUSION: Sonography-guided iliopsoas bursal/peritendinous injections are useful in determining the cause of hip pain. They can provide relief to most patients with iliopsoas tendinosis/bursitis after hip replacement. The results of injection alone are not as successful in cases of idiopathic iliopsoas tendinosis/bursitis, but the technique can help determine which patients may ... Read More »

48. Soft tissue metastases presenting as greater trochanteric pain syndrome.
Match Strength: 8.060

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome includes a complex differential diagnosis. We report the case of a 71-year-old woman who consulted us because of pain in the lateral aspect of the hip. A diagnosis of greater trochanter bursitis was suggested, and she was treated with local injections of a mixture of corticosteroids plus anesthetic, but the condition did not improve. A pelvic MRI showed a high intensity signal in the gluteus medius and minimus and a subsequent biopsy revealed a metastasis of an adenocarcinoma of unknown origin.Although pain on the lateral aspect of the hip is often attributed ... Read More »

49. Swelling of Olecranon Bursa in Uremic Patients Receiving Hemodialysis
Match Strength: 7.933

Three patients with chronic renal failure who received therapy with hemodialysis through arteriovenous fistulas in the forearm had fluctuating swelling over the elbow on the same side as the fistula used for the dialysis. The clinical findings in each case were compatible with olecranon bursitis with effusion. The aspirate obtained from the swellings contained lymphocytes, polymorphonuclear leukocytes and histiocytes, a finding similar to that in cases of uremic pericardial and pleural effusion. Biopsy of the bursa in one case showed hyalinized collagenous tissue with infiltration by ... Read More »

50. Surgical Management of Achilles Tendinitis
Match Strength: 7.881

Inflammation of the Achilles tendon and its contiguous structures is one of the most common overuse problems seen in runners. There are actually several etiologies. Involvement of the tendon itself is secondary to areas of mucinoid or fibrotic degeneration, or may be a result of a partial rupture. The sheath (or mesotenon) may also become chronically inflammed. Retrocalcaneal bursitis seems to be a separate entity with hypertrophy and fibrosis of the bursa usually occurring in conjunction with a prominent posterior superior angle of the os calcis. The vast majority of patients can be ... Read More »
