Disease relevance of Finger Joint


High impact information on Finger Joint

  • METHODS: Both hands of 14 patients with SLE of various activities and durations and with arthritis and/or deformities of the finger joints were examined by MRI and conventional radiography [6].
  • Optimal performance at the finger joint was attained over the range of angular velocities from 10 degrees to 80 degrees/s. Optimal performance at both more proximal joints was optimal over a wider range (2 degrees-80 degrees/s) [7].
  • High resolution ultrasound detects a decrease in pannus vascularisation of small finger joints in patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving treatment with soluble tumour necrosis factor alpha receptor (etanercept) [8].
  • If radiographic OA of different hand and finger joint groups was present, participants were categorised as having generalised OA (GOA) [9].
  • Erbium-169 colloid was almost exclusively used to treat finger joints (31/33 centres) [10].

Associations of Finger Joint with chemical compounds


Gene context of Finger Joint

  • OBJECTIVE: High resolution ultrasound (HRUS) was used to investigate the effects of tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) blockade on pannus formation and vascularisation of small finger joints in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) [8].
  • Arthritis in the finger joints was associated with clinical psoriasis but was also a frequent finding in HLA B27-positive patients free from this condition (23%) [22].
  • Dependent variables were tendon travel, wrist deviation, wrist and finger joint kinematics, and Borg comfort rating [23].
  • A computer-controlled MCP joint arthrograph was developed to measure the stiffness of finger joints objectively [24].
  • The legends of his story and his role in the Hundred Years War were immortalized by William Shakespeare in his play Henry VI Part I, but neither Shakespeare nor historians documented that the Earl actually had abnormal finger joints [25].
