Tibial pain and unilateral knee arthritis : Precursors of paraneoplastic arthropathy.
Various rheumatic symptoms can occur in association with malignancies and are termed the so-called paraneoplastic arthropathy. The clinical picture is often similar to primary inflammatory rheumatic diseases. At present there exist no epidemiological data on this disease entity. The case of a patient with tibial pain and unilateral knee arthritis as precursors of a paraneoplastic syndrome is presented. The patient presented with the clinical manifestation of small cell lung cancer 2 years after the first presentation in the rheumatology clinic.

Many patients in need of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have bilateral symptoms and require surgery to both extremities. Performance of a bilateral procedure under a single anesthetic provides a reduce...
Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has shown a higher rate of revision compared with total knee arthroplasty. The success of UKA depends on prosthesis component alignment, fixation and soft tiss...
Fractures of the tibial eminence and of the diaphyseal tibia are common pediatric orthopaedic injuries. Although most tibial fractures can be treated nonsurgically, those that require surgical interve...
Introduction. Unicompartmental arthroplasty of the knee in patients with isolated medial osteoarthritis gives good results, but survival is inferior to that of total knee prosthesis. Knees may fail be...
Background: It is unclear whether an intensive program of weight loss combined with exercise prevents the onset of knee pain among those at high risk. We examined whether an intensive lifestyle interv...
Anterior knee pain (AKP) is a common complication following intramedullary (IM) nailing of a tibial shaft fracture. The purpose of this prospective study was to determine if there is an as...
This study is for patients with cancer, a known paraneoplastic syndrome, or neurological problems that suggest a paraneoplastic syndrome.
This study is being performed to evaluate the functionality of a device (NanoTab™ Delivery System) that has been developed for use by patients to self-administer the ARX-F01 pain medicat...
We treat a subset of patients with paraneoplastic neurologic disorders, including those with Yo-mediated paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD), the Hu syndrome, which is most common...
Total knee replacement is an effective option for treating chronic knee conditions that cause pain and functional impairment. Significant improvements in quality of life, as measured by bo...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Unilateral or bilateral pain of the shoulder. It is often caused by physical activities such as work or sports participation, but may also be pathologic in origin.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
