diaphysis of long bones, pelvis, scapula, ribs; 11; 22

rest; end of day
what type of disorder is osteoarthiritis- ie of the bone or of what? what is the actual pathology?
joint disorder; destruction of articular cartilage d/t wear and tear of joints
what are three predisposing factors for osteoarthiritis?
age, obesity, joint deformity
how do subchondral cysts form in osteoarthiritis? in what disease is it seen
loss of hyaline cartilage causes bone to rub against each other and cause lesions where synovial fluid gets in and forms cysts; osteoarthiritis
what causes sclerosis of the bone in osteoarthirtis? what does this lead to?
bone rubbing against each other; eburnation (polished ivory like appearance of bone)
what are osteophytes? how do they form? in what disease? what do they cause?
bone spurs that form at margins of joints that are reactive bone formation; in osteoarthiritis; cause bone pain
T/F there is no ankylosis in osteoarthiritis
what are Heberdens and Bouchards nodes? what is the difference between the two? in what disease are they seen?
reactive osteophytes and hypertrophy of synovial fluid; Heberdens is DIP and Bouchards are PIP; osteoarthiritis
what causes bowleggedness in osteoarthiritis?
in knees, cartilage loss begins on medial aspect
what do the hyaline cartilage and the proteoglycans provide in joints?
the ability to deal with tensile stress and elasticity
what should you think when you hear pain in weight bearing joints after use?
what type of disease is rheumatoid arthiritis? what kind of necrosis is seen?
autoimmune type III hypersensitivity; fibrinoid necrosis
what types of joints are affected in rheumatoid arthiritis? how is the classic presesntation different from osteoarthiritis?
synovial joints; older women with morning stiffness that improves with use- symmetric joint and systemic symptoms
what systemic symptoms can you see in Rheumatoid arthiritis?
lung (fibrosis, pleuritis), CV (pericarditis, aorititis, vasculitis), heme (ACD, AIHA)
T/F Osteoarthiritis effects MIP but Rheumatoid doesnt
false- Rheumatoid doesnt have DIP involvement
what forms in the joints of rheumatoid patients? where does it form?
pannus formation in MCP and PIP
what is a pannus? in what disease does it form?
collection of granulation tissue, synovium, inflammatory cells, fibroblasts, cytokines; in rheumatoid arthiritis
what are the nodules that form in Rheumatoid arthiritis made of? where do they form?
subcutaneous; fibrinoid necrosis surrounded by palisading histiocytes

both rheumatoid arthritis
what is it called when a synovial sack develops in the posterior knee joint? in what disease does this occur?
Baker's cyst; rheumatoid arthritis
which antibody is most sensitive in RA diagnosis? specific?
rheumatoid factor; anti CCP antibody
what is the rheumatoid factor? anti CCP antibody?
B cells are activated to produce IgM Abs with antigen as Fc region of IgG (so rheumatoid factor= anti IgG antibodies); anti CCP are antibodies to citrulline (a ribonucleoprotein) modified peptides
