Patient Q&A Section

How many people get arthritis a year in the United States?

"Arthritis affects approximately 2% of adults in the United States, although it may affect up to 8% at some point within their lives. In this population, nearly 10% of those affected will have debilitating arthritis disabling them completely. Arthritis has become an epidemic medical condition which the public is unaware of and is often misjudged." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for arthritis?

"In the case of [osteoarthritis](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/osteoarthritis), there is a good choice of nonsurgical treatments that include weight loss, exercise, and joint protection (splints and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs) for chronic [pain management](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/pain-management). However, surgical procedures can be an option to help relieve pain and help regain knee mobility. Joint replacement has been proven to help alleviate pain over time, although it has been criticized for poor short-term results and increased risk when people have long-term complications. Currently, surgical options are only recommended in a few situations. In general, nonsurgical treatments are used for mild to moderate cases of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is one of the most common types of arthritis." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Does tsr - rotator cuff sparing improve quality of life for those with arthritis?

"Data from a recent study shows that tsr results in significantly better function in terms of disability, pain and general health than conventional arthroscopy alone. Data from a recent study are consistent with existing literature." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What does tsr - rotator cuff sparing usually treat?

"We found that sutured rotator cuff repair gave greater pain relief than arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. In terms of shoulder function, the sutured repair group did significantly better than the arthroscopic repair group. In contrast, shoulder function using the suture-only repair method fell short of the suture-only repairs performed in two other studies. There was not sufficient evidence to determine whether the type of surgery performed had any influence on the shoulder function of the patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Does arthritis run in families?

"As is true for many diseases, familial aggregation of RA may not be explained only by common genetic effects. The familial clustering of RA appears to result from a complex polygenic mechanism in which different genes contribute a small number of risk alleles to the disease. Findings from a recent study suggest that the role of genetic factors in RA is not confined to the large number of genes identified so far." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How does tsr - rotator cuff sparing work?

"The long-term results of the rotator cuff sparing procedure for the treatment of traumatic rotator cuff tears are promising. It is a viable therapeutic option in patients with recalcitrant TTDs. However, the small patient group (n = 12), particularly in terms of postoperative outcomes and follow-up time, and the small follow-up time limits the generalizability of the procedure." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Who should consider clinical trials for arthritis?

"In a recent study, findings suggest that patients' willingness to participate in clinical trials may be higher in patients with a higher willingness to benefit from medications. In a recent study, findings are discussed in relation to the implications for drug discovery and marketing and their applicability to clinicians and patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
