93 Possible Causes for Disorder of Digit, Narrow Hands, Osteophyte

  • Osteoarthritis

    […] photographs for the diagnosis of hand osteoarthritis: the AGES-Reykjavik study, BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 13, 1, (2012).[doi.org] In the small joints of the hand (see the image below), radiographs often show narrowing of the entire joint.[emedicine.com] Objectives: To identify molecular differences between chondrocytes from osteophytic and articular cartilage tissue from OA patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Osteoarthritis

    […] sitting before their desktops, cervical spondylosis is common disorders.[gyanunlimited.com] […] in your hands, arms, legs, and feet.[everydayhealth.com] This friction can lead to the development of osteophytes, or bone spurs.[arthritis-health.com]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    […] sitting before their desktops, cervical spondylosis is common disorders.[gyanunlimited.com] For an accurate diagnosis, attention should be paid to the narrow anteroposterior (AP) canal diameter of the cervical spine (less than 13mm), multisegmental spondylosis in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The value of the osteophyte height ratio was higher at the ONL level than at its superior and inferior adjacent segments (P 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    Psoriatic arthritis may involve not only the joints in the sense of arthritis but also the tendons surrounding the joints, leading to swelling of whole digits (dactylitis)[patient.info] […] of joint spaces. 21 Radiography of the hands, wrists, and feet was performed at baseline, at week 16 or 24 (depending on response), and at week 52.[nejm.org] Dactylitis Entire digit currently swollen (1 point) Dactylitis history as diagnosed previously by a rheumatologist (1 point) Hand or foot XRay with new bone formation (not osteophytes[fpnotebook.com]

  • Lumbar Osteoarthritis

    BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2012, 13: 20-10.1186/1471-2474-13-20.[bmcmusculoskeletdisord.biomedcentral.com] Associations differed by appendicular joint OA with significant associations between facet joint OA and knee and hand OA, but no associations between disc space narrowing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The exposed subchondral bone on the outskirts of the joint react by growing new bone spurs called osteophytes.[clinic-hq.co.uk]

  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Inter-observer reproducibility of measurements of range of motion in patients with shoulder pain using a digital inclinometer. BMC Musculoskeletal Disord 2004 ; 5: 18.[dx.doi.org] Neer sign One hand fixes the scapula while the other elevates and internally rotates the arm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was evidence of calcium deposition in the rotator cuff in 37%, inferiorly oriented acromioclavicular osteophytes in 32%, and degenerative changes of the lesser humeral[ajronline.org]

  • Arthropathy

    Psoriatic arthritis may involve not only the joints in the sense of arthritis but also the tendons surrounding the joints, leading to swelling of whole digits (dactylitis)[patient.info] […] but also affecting other joints, characterized radiographically by narrowing of the joint space with subchondral erosions and sclerosis and frequently chondrocalcinosis.[web.archive.org] The prevalence and extent of erosions and osteophytes were similar in all groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ganglion Cyst

    Ganglion cysts of the distal interphalangeal joint (digital mucous cysts) are associated with osteoarthritis.[clinicaladvisor.com] Raynaud’s phenomenon is a condition characterized by a narrowing of the blood vessels to the extremities, usually the hands, in response to cold temperatures or stress.[arthritis.org] ACJ osteophyte. [A] Long-axis 12-5 MHz US image shows an exuberant ACJ osteophyte (arrowhead).[web.archive.org]

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    , characterized by generalized digital cyanosis, localized painful vasculitic lesions of dorsal forefoot (30% of cases) and apices of toes (20–25% of cases); subcutaneous[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Tarsal tunnel syndrome shares some similarities to the more commonly understood carpal tunnel syndrome that occurs in the hand and wrist.[behzadisportsdoc.com] During surgery, the osteophytes were found to be irritating the deep peroneal nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    […] at night, signs of the disorder upon examination, and especially if the patient responds to a steroid shot.[chron.com] The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand that houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers.[ninds.nih.gov] Carpal bone osteophytes are rarely reported causes of CTS.
