Orthopedic Degenerative Diseases

Every bone, tissues and tendon in the body is a part of the skeleton system and a potential contributor to orthopedics. Disorders are ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain and fibromyalgia. These are only a few of the known orthopedic disorders. There are as many treatments for orthopedic disorders as there are problems and injuries in the muscles, ligaments and joints. One of the most significant orthopedic health problems today, low back pain, can be caused by overuse and strenuous activities, improper use and exposure to continual vibrations. Traumas or injuries to the back can cause chronic low back pain and degeneration of the vertebrae is a definite cause of low back pain. Orthopedics and its related disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again. Pediatric orthopedics  also deals with the surgery related diseases.

Under this Track we are going to discuss various disorders which affect the overall skeleton system which includes: Osteochondroma, Muscle Injuries and Disorders, Low Back Pain, Pain Relief Therapies, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Joint Infection, Spinal Disorders & Therapies, orthopedic spine, Dupuytren’s Contracture.

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis with the aging of the US population, the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed arthritis is expected to increase in the coming decades. By the year 2030, an estimated 67 million (25% of the projected total adult population) adults aged 18 years and older will have arthritis.

Arthropathies and Inflammatory Myopathies

Arthropathy is a collective term for any disease of the joints. A myriad of arthropathic disorders can afflict the joints, including sacroiliitis which causes inflammation in the sacroiliac joint, Charcot's joints which leads to the degeneration of a joint due to nerve damage, and arthrogryposis which results in joint contractures. The enteropathic arthropathies are a group of rheumatologic conditions that share a link to gastrointestinal (GI) pathology. The inflammatory myopathies are a group of diseases that involve chronic muscle inflammation, accompanied by muscle weakness.  Another word for chronic inflammation of muscle tissue is myositis. Muscle inflammation may be caused by an allergic reaction, exposure to a toxic substance or medicine, another disease such as cancer or rheumatic conditions, or a virus or other infectious agent, Orthopedic nursing should be done by orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioners with care in such conditions. The chronic inflammatory myopathies are idiopathic, meaning they have no known cause.  They are thought to be autoimmune disorders, in which the body’s white blood cells (that normally fight disease) attack blood vessels, normal muscle fibers, and connective tissue in organs, bones, and joints.

Under this track various topics will be discussed which will explore various aspects of these diseases such as Diagnosis of myopathies, Spondylarthropathy, Anti-synthetase syndrome, Reactive arthropathy, Enteropathic arthropathy, Diabetic arthropathy, Crystal arthropathy.

Worldwide incidence of inheritable myopathies is about 14 percent. Of all inheritable myopathyies, central core disease accounts for 16 percent of cases; nemaline rod myopathy accounts for 20 percent; centronuclear myopathy accounts for 14 percent; and multicore myopathy accounts for 10 percent.Worldwide incidence of inflammatory myopathies is about 5–10 per 100,000 people.

Connective Tissue Disorders and Soft Tissue Rheumatism

Connective tissue diseases are actually a group of medical diseases. A connective tissue disease is any disease that has the connective tissues of the body as a primary target of pathology. The connective tissues are the structural portions of our body that essentially hold the cells of the body together .Connective tissue disease refers to a group of disorders involving the protein-rich tissue that supports organs and other parts of the body, Orthopedic nursing and care should be taken by orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioners. Examples of connective tissue are fat, bone, and cartilage. These disorders often involve the joints, muscles, and skin, but they can also involve other organs and organ systems including the eyes, heart, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and blood vessels. Bursitis and tendinitis are conditions that are also known as soft tissue rheumatic syndromes. A syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together and indicate a particular problem. This type of syndrome produces pain, swelling, or inflammation in the tissues and structures around a joint, such as the tendons, ligaments, bursae, and muscles. Soft tissue rheumatism is one of the most common and most misunderstood categories of disorders facing the Orthopedic Surgeon and pediatric surgeon. Among the more common types are subacromial bursitis, epicondylitis, trochanteric bursitis, anserine bursitis, and fibromyalgia. The keys to the diagnosis of soft-tissue rheumatism are the history and, more importantly, the physical examination. Extensive laboratory testing and radiographs are not as helpful in evaluating patients with these complaints

There are over 200 disorders that impact connective tissue. Injuries can cause connective tissue disorders, such as scars. Others, such as Heritable connective tissue disorders, Autoimmune connective tissue disorders, Scurvy, Diagnosis of connective tissue disorders, Tendinitis and Enthesitis, Epicondylitis, Tenosynovitis and Bursitis, Myofascial Pain, Tennis Elbow. The Connective tissue disorders and surgeries related to pediatric orthopedics can be treated by pediatric surgeons.

As awareness and acceptance of soft tissue rheumatism among physicians and the general population increases, the diagnosed and drug-treated population will grow by 1.7 million from 2010 to 2020.Orthopedic manufacturers are also aware of the present statistics and manufacturing orthopedic implants and orthopedic medical supplies according to the present day demand.

Arthritis - Types and Treatment

Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that has symptoms of pain, limited movement, swelling and pain in connective tissues. There are almost 50 million people in the United States who experience some type of arthritis. Arthritis is chronic or rarely changes and can progress slowly, and unfortunately many of the causes of arthritis are unknown. Arthritis literally means inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia. This track will discuss about Arthritis and its different types as well as treatment modalities.Ankylosing spondylitis, Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Septic arthritis, Gout and pseudo-gout, Physical and occupational therapy, Arthroscopic surgery, Rheumatoid arthritis.

The global market revenue for advanced orthopedics grew from $35.3 billion in 2013 to $36.4 billion in 2014. Additionally, the industry will see a compound annual growth rate of approximately 3% through 2019. By that year, the advanced orthopedics market is expected to reach revenues of $42.2 billion and the number of orthopedic medical supplies and orthopedic implants will be manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers in largescale. Veterniray orthopedics devices also are in good demand at the present day as there is increase in pet culture at homes  around the globe.

Rheumatoid Arthritis - Pathophysiology and Treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include: Tender, warm, swollen joints,Morning stiffness that may last for hours, Firm bumps of tissue under the skin on your arms (rheumatoid nodules). Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues. In addition to causing joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis sometimes can affect other organs of the body — such as the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels, at this point of time orthopedic nursing  should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioner with utmost care.

This track discuss about the Rheumatoid Arthritis, its physiology and possible treatments such as Histopathology – Synovium, Cartilage, Bone and Synovial Cavity, Inflammatory Mediators in RA,Steroids and NSAIDs,Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, Immunosuppressants & TNF-alpha inhibitors, Tendon repair & Joint fusion,Total joint replacement, Pediatric Rheumatology and Pediatric orthopedics. This process of surgeries will be done by the Orthopedic specialistsknee specialists, pediatric surgeons and orthopedic surgeons.

The global rheumatology therapeutics market was estimated to be worth $17.1 billion in 2011, having grown at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.4% from 2005, and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% to $23.8 billion by 2018. The orthopedic implants , rheumatology equipment and orthopedic medical supplies are in great demand and have a largescale exports in the global market and are being manufactured at a very large scale by the orthopedic manufacturers.

Bone Disorders and Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine. Osteoarthritis often gradually worsens, and no cure exists. But staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints and this condition in pediatric orthopedics and orthopedic spine can be treated by pediatric surgeons. It occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints breaks down leading to pain, stiffness and swelling pain. Osteoarthritis (OA) is caused by aging joints, injury, and obesity. OA symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and involves medication and exercise. Deficiency in knee joints can be treated by the knee specialists by performing knee surgery.

This track discuss about different bone disorders and most specifically about Osteoarthritis, other topics includes: Bone density measurement, Hip osteoarthritis and osteoporotic fracture, Osteochondrodysplasia, Osteoarthritis, Pathophysiology of Osteoarthritis, Bone Fracture, Marrow adiposity, Knee osteoarthritis, Myeloma bone disease, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold support, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold supportOrthopedic spine surgeries are leading surgeries in global orthopedics.

There were more than 1.6 million total trauma fixation procedures performed in the United States last year. The majority of the trauma-related bone fixation procedures were in the shoulder, upper arm, forearm, wrist, hand, fingers, hip, femur,tibia/fibula, ankle, foot and toes and knee, which can be fixed by the knee surgery by knee specialists. The knee surgery is very well carried out by the advanced orthopedic implants manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers.

Musculoskeletal Outcomes: Theory and Practice

The human musculoskeletal system (also known as the locomotor system, and previously the activity system is an organ system that gives humans the ability to move using their muscular and skeletal systems. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body. Outcome measures and scoring systems are an important part of musculoskeletal research and can play an important role in the development of new treatments. The mission of the Musculoskeletal Outcomes and Patient Oriented Research is to rigorously investigate the delivery of care to patients with orthopedic nursing  and rheumatologic conditions, with the goal of continually improving their outcomes, this patient care should be undertaken by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioner for improving health of the patient.

This track discuss about the various aspect of Musculoskeletal Outcomes, its Theory and Practices such as Comparative effectiveness research using randomized trials and observational data, Individualized prediction of outcomes, Outcomes-based quality improvement activities, Cost-effectiveness of various procedures, Data operations in outcomes studies (data collection, warehousing, analysis), Sharing experience of failed studies and what to do to succeed, Chiropractic procedures, outcomes and challenges.

The elderly population in the United States is expected to double by 2050, reaching 80 million. Hip fractures are estimated at 350,000 to 400,000 annually in the United States. Around three-quarters of these patients are women and 90 percent of the injuries are caused by falls. That’s the reason the demand for orthopedic medical supplies  have been increased in the recent years.

Ultrasound, Imaging and Diagnostic Techniques

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues—without needing to make an incision. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered part of pathology instead of medical imaging. In knee surgery also medical imaging plays an important role. The major orthopedic manufacturers of the global market concentrate much on medical imaging devices than other orthopedic implants and orthopedic medical supplies.The devices used in the pediatric orthopedicsorthopedic spine surgery, and veterniray orthopedics are in high demand in the global market.

Besides Ultrasound and medical imaging this track discuss about the following topics as well.Ultrasonography, Musculoskeletal imaging in rheumatology, Ultrasound elastography, 3D Ultrasound imaging for musculoskeletal tissues, Bone Mineral Density Measurements Using DXA, Novel Metal Suppression Techniques, MR Arthrography, Tomosynthesis. Advanced orthopedic spine imaging devices are used by the by knee specialistspediatric surgeons and the related surgeons of pediatric orthopedics.  The global orthopedic device market and orthopedic implants was valued at $29.2 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $41.2 billion by 2019. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.9 % over the next five years.

Orthopedic Surgery and Orthopedic Trauma

Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics  is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Orthopedic trauma care covers the spectrum of simple isolated fractures to severe life threatening accidents with multiple broken bones. While many fractures can be treated very well by general orthopedic surgeons, some can benefit from fracture specialists. More significant injuries with multiple broken bones, compound fractures and fractures near a joint, and fractures of the pelvis are more difficult to treat, and benefit the most from specialized care. Additionally, problems with healing including nonunions, infections (osteomyelitis) and healing with poor alignment (malunion) are often treated by fracture specialists.

In this track discussions will be carried out regarding the orthopedic surgeries, orthopedic surgeons and trauma in orthopedic injuries, it involves, Periprosthetic Fractures, Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries, Radial Mononeuropathy, Sternoclavicular Joint Injury, Peripheral Nerve Injuries, Hand surgery, Knee surgery and Hip Surgery, Orthopedic  specialists and knee specialists orthopedic specialists, Spine SurgerySpine orthopedic Surgeon related to orthopedic spine, Bone Trauma, Interphalangeal Dislocation, Total joint construction, Orthopedic Surgeon UK, Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and knee surgery. It is essential to conduct orthopedic surgery conferences in order to convey the recent advances in orthopaedic surgery.

Across nearly the entire U.S. orthopedic trauma device market ,orthopedic implants, devices related to orthopedic spine ,titanium materials are gaining popularity among orthopedic surgeonsknee specialistsorthopedic specialists, and pediatric surgeons as a superior product in comparison to their stainless steel counterparts.  One exception is the conventional hip screw market where stainless steel comprises over 75% of the market.

Pharmacological Treatment and Medications

Numerous drugs are available to control the signs of osteoarthritis secondary to HD. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain relievers can be used during bouts of lameness. These drugs inhibit prostaglandin release which decreases the inflammatory process and therefore, less pain is produced. These medications can also be given an hour or so before known periods of exercise to decrease inflammation. Side effects may be seen in some dogs which include vomiting, diarrhea, and inappetence thus they can be very uselful in veterninary orthopedics.Various alternative drug therapies known as disease-modifying osteoarthritis agents can be used. According to the orthopedic manufacturers, these drugs work by providing the raw materials to enhance the synthesis of glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronate that cannot be adequately produced in the diseased arthritic joint. These are the molecules that form proteoglycan, which is an important constituent of the hyaline cartilage that lines the joint. These drugs may also enhance the synthesis of other macromolecules by cartilage cells that inhibit degradative enzymes produced within the arthritic joint. Controlled studies have been reported about the positive effects in people for osteoarthritis. A number of prescription and over-the-counter drugs help relieve the pain, swelling and other symptoms that come with fractured bones, injured ligaments, disease, aging and degeneration of joints and bones. Managing pain is important for recovery. Severe pain or pain that doesn't go away can lead to depression, difficulty sleeping, limitations on ability to move around and changes to daily activities. All of these can slow down healing and prolong a painful bone condition. Orthopedic nursing should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioner .Orthopedic medical supplies and orthopaedics consumables market is at at hight growth rate in these recent years.

This track will discuss about the various types of drugs used for the orthopedic disease condition, it includesOrthopedic surgeons & Knee specialists Meeting, Corticosteroids, Muscle relaxants, Narcotic pain relievers, Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), Osteoporosis drugs, Pain relievers, Casts, Anti-Inflammatory Medications. For this diseases the orthopedic medical supplies  manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers are very well used.

The orthopedic consumables market including anchors and staples is expected to grow over the next five years. The market will likely reach a value of $457 million by 2019. Anchors form a major share of the total orthopedic consumables market, contributing to about 80 percent of the market share in 2019.
