Research in muskuloskeletal diseases

Musculoskeletal diseases are a rapidly growing cause of disability, chronic pain, and reduced quality of life in our ageing populations worldwide. Our aims are to gain novel insights into these diseases - their etiology, occurrence, natural history, treatments, prediction, disease monitoring, and disease burden - to allow for better healthcare decision-making and disease prevention.

To accomplish these goals, we use a multidisciplinary approach. For research on osteoarthritis, a chronic degenerative joint disease, we use human tissue biobanking, proteomics, and MR imaging to characterize the molecular and structural aspects of tissue degradation associated with the earliest stages of the disease. We are especially interested in the role of the meniscus in early knee osteoarthritis. Further, in population-based epidemiologic and health economic studies of musculoskeletal disease, we use physician-coded healthcare data from Sweden to understand the impact of these diseases on patients and society. Our previous work has contributed to improved understanding of musculoskeletal disease and impactful changes in their clinical management. To learn more, read about our projects.

Opioid use in knee or hip osteoarthritis: a region-wide population-based cohort study
JB Thorlund, A Turkiewicz, D Prieto-Alhambra, M Englund
Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, In press.

Here, we quantified opioid use in knee and hip osteoarthritis (OA) patients, and estimated the proportion of opioids in the population attributable to OA patients. We found that every fourth patient with knee or hip OA has opioids dispensed over a 1-year period, and 12% of incident opioid dispensations were attributable to OA and/or its related comorbidities. These results highlight that patients with knee and hip OA constitute a group of patients with an alarmingly high use of opioids.
Cause-specific mortality in gout: Novel findings of elevated risk of non-cardiovascular related deaths
AB Vargas-Santos, T Neogi, GR Castelar-Pinheiro, MC Kapetanovic, A Turkiewicz
Arthritis & Rheumatology, In press.

In this study, we examined mortality in patients with gout compared to the general population, studying the entire population of Skåne using a register-based approach. We found that persons with gout had a higher prevalence of metabolic, cardiovascular, and renal disease. Gout patients showed 17% increased hazard of all-cause mortality, with strongest risks of death associated with renal disease, diseases of the digestive system, cardiovascular diseases, and infections, in that order.
Nature vs nurture in knee osteoarthritis – the importance of age, sex and body mass index
K Magnusson, A Turkiewicz, M Englund
Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, In press.

Using a twin-study approach, our goals were to estimate the life-time genetic contribution for knee osteoarthritis (OA) surgery and to explore differences in the genetic contribution based on age, sex and body mass index (BMI). We found that the overall heritability of knee OA surgery was high in women, but relatively low in men. In men, heritability varied with age and BMI.
Educational inequalities in mortality associated with rheumatoid arthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders in Sweden
AA Kiadaliri, IF Petersson, M Englund
BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 2019;20(1):83.

Little is known about socioeconomic inequalities in deaths related to musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders in the general population. Using multiple-cause-of-death and education data covering the entire population of the Skåne region in Sweden, we quantified educational inequalities in MSK disorders-related mortality compared with with non-MSK disorders-related mortality. Our results showed that mortality related to MSK disorders was around 2 times higher in people with lower education. Further research is needed to investigate the pathways driving these inequalities.

Musculoskeletal disorders as underlying cause of death in 58 countries, 1986–2011: trend analysis of WHO mortality database. Kiadaliri, A. A.; Woolf, A. D.; and Englund, M. BMC Musculoskeletal disorders, 18: 62. 2017.
Musculoskeletal disorders as underlying cause of death in 58 countries, 1986–2011: trend analysis of WHO mortality database.
Background: Due to low mortality rate of musculoskeletal disorders (MSK) less attention has been paid to MSK as underlying cause of death in the general population. The aim was to examine trend in MSK as underlying cause of death in 58 countries across globe during 1986–2011.
Methods: Data on mortality were collected from the WHO mortality database and population data were obtained from the United Nations. Annual sex-specific age-standardized mortality rates (ASMR) were calculated by means of direct standardization using the WHO world standard population. We applied joinpoint regression analysis for trend analysis. Between-country disparities were examined using between-country variance and Gini coefficient. The changes in number of MSK deaths between 1986 and 2011 were decomposed using two counterfactual scenarios.
Results: The number of MSK deaths increased by 67% between 1986 and 2011 mainly due to population aging. The mean ASMR changed from 17.2 and 26.6 per million in 1986 to 18.1 and 25.1 in 2011 among men and women, respectively (median: 7.3% increase in men and 9.0% reduction in women). Declines in ASMR of 25% or more were observed for men (women) in 13 (19) countries, while corresponding increases were seen for men (women) in 25 (14) countries. In both sexes, ASMR declined during 1986–1997, then increased during 1997–2001 and again declined over 2001–2011. Despite decline over time, there were substantial between-country disparities in MSK mortality and its temporal trend.
Conclusions: We found substantial variations in MSK mortality and its trends between countries, regions and also between sex and age groups. Promoted awareness and better management of MSK might partly explain reduction in MSK mortality, but variations across countries warrant further investigations.
Mechanical symptoms and arthroscopic partial meniscectomy in patients with degenerative meniscus tear: a secondary analysis of a randomized trial. Sihvonen, R.; Englund, M.; Turkiewicz, A.; and Jarvinen, T. L. N. Annals of internal medicine, 164(7): 449--455. April 2016.
Mechanical symptoms and arthroscopic partial meniscectomy in patients with degenerative meniscus tear: a secondary analysis of a randomized trial.
BACKGROUND: Recent evidence shows that arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) offers no benefit over conservative treatment of patients with a degenerative meniscus tear. However, patients who report mechanical symptoms (sensations of knee catching or locking) may benefit from APM.
OBJECTIVE: To assess whether APM improves mechanical symptoms better than sham surgery.
DESIGN: Randomized, patient- and outcome assessor-blinded, sham surgery-controlled, multicenter trial. (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT00549172).
SETTING: 5 orthopedic clinics in Finland.
PATIENTS: Adults (aged 35 to 65 years) with a degenerative medial meniscus tear and no knee osteoarthritis.
INTERVENTION: APM or sham surgery.
MEASUREMENTS: Patients' self-report of mechanical symptoms before surgery and at 2, 6, and 12 months after surgery.
RESULTS: 70 patients were randomly assigned to APM, and 76 were assigned to sham surgery. Thirty-two patients (46%) in the APM group and 37 (49%) in the sham surgery group reported catching or locking before surgery; the corresponding numbers at any follow-up were 34 (49%) and 33 (43%), with a risk difference of 0.03 (95% CI, -0.06 to 0.12). In the subgroup of 69 patients with preoperative catching or locking, the risk difference was 0.07 (CI, -0.08 to 0.22).
LIMITATION: Analyses were post hoc, and the results are only generalizable to knee catching and occasional locking because few patients reported other types of mechanical symptoms.
CONCLUSION: Resection of a torn meniscus has no added benefit over sham surgery to relieve knee catching or occasional locking. These findings question whether mechanical symptoms are caused by a degenerative meniscus tear and prompt caution in using patients' self-report of these symptoms as an indication for APM.

Natural history of intrameniscal signal intensity on knee MR images: six years of data from the osteoarthritis initiative. Kumm, J.; Roemer, F. W.; Guermazi, A.; Turkiewicz, A.; and Englund, M. Radiology, 278(1): 164--171. January 2016.
Natural history of intrameniscal signal intensity on knee mr images: six years of data from the osteoarthritis initiative.
Purpose: To assess the natural history of intrameniscal signal intensity on magnetic resonance (MR) images of the medial compartment.
Materials and Methods: Both knees of 269 participants (55% women, aged 45–55 years) in the Osteoarthritis Initiative without radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) and without medial meniscal tear at baseline were studied. One radiologist assessed 3-T MR images from baseline and 24-, 48-, and 72-month follow-up for intrameniscal signal intensity and tears. A complementary log-log model with random effect was used to evaluate the risk of medial meniscal tear, adjusting for age, sex, body mass index, and knee side.
Results: At baseline, linear intrameniscal signal intensity in the medial compartment was present in 140 knees (26%). Once present, regression only in a single knee was observed. In 31 knees (19%) with linear intrameniscal signal intensity at any of the first three time points, the signal intensity progressed to a tear in the same segment, and in a single knee, the tear occurred in an adjacent segment. The corresponding number of tears without prior finding of intrameniscal signal intensities was 11 (3%). In the adjusted model, the hazard ratio for developing medial meniscal tear was 18.2 (95% confidence interval: 8.3, 39.8) if linear intrameniscal signal intensity was present, compared when there was no linear signal intensity. There was only one of 43 knees with injury reported in conjunction with the incident tear.
Conclusion: In middle-aged persons without OA, linear intrameniscal signal intensity on MR images is highly unlikely to resolve and should be considered a risk factor for medial degenerative meniscal tear.
Current and future impact of osteoarthritis on health care: a population-based study with projections to year 2032. Turkiewicz, A.; Petersson, I. F.; Björk, J.; Hawker, G.; Dahlberg, L. E.; Lohmander, L. S.; and Englund, M. >Osteoarthritis and cartilage, 22(11): 1826--1832. November 2014.
Current and future impact of osteoarthritis on health care: a population-based study with projections to year 2032.
OBJECTIVE: To estimate the current and future (to year 2032) impact of osteoarthritis (OA) health care seeking.
METHOD: Population-based study with prospectively ascertained data from the Skåne Healthcare Register (SHR), Sweden, encompassing more than 15 million person-years of primary and specialist outpatient care and hospitalizations. We studied all Skåne region residents aged ≥45 by the end of 2012 (n = 531, 254) and determined the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed OA defined as the proportion of the prevalent population that had received a diagnosis of OA of the knee, hip, hand, or other locations except the spine between 1999 and 2012. We projected consultation prevalence of OA until year 2032 using Statistics Sweden's (SCB) projected age and sex structure and prevalence of overweight and obesity.
RESULTS: In 2012 the proportion of population aged ≥45 with any doctor-diagnosed OA was 26.6% (95% confidence interval (CI): 26.5-26.8) (men 22.4%, women 30.5%). The most common locations were knee (13.8%), hip (5.8%) and hand (3.1%). Of the prevalent cases 26.8% had OA in multiple joints. By the year 2032, the proportion of the population aged ≥45 with doctor-diagnosed OA is estimated to increase from 26.6% to 29.5% (any location), from 13.8% to 15.7% for the knee and 5.8-6.9% for the hip.
CONCLUSION: In 2032, at least an additional 26,000 individuals per 1 million population aged ≥45 years are estimated to have consulted a physician for OA in a peripheral joint compared to 2012. These findings underscore the need to address modifiable risk factors and develop new effective OA treatments.
Meniscus pathology, osteoarthritis and the treatment controversy. Englund, M.; Roemer, F. W.; Hayashi, D.; Crema, M. D.; and Guermazi, A. Nature reviews: Rheumatology, 8(7): 412--419. July 2012.
Meniscus pathology, osteoarthritis and the treatment controversy.
The menisci are internal structures that are of central importance for a healthy knee joint; they have a key role in the structural progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA), and the risk of the disease dramatically increases if they are damaged by injury or degenerative processes. Meniscus damage might be considered a signifying feature of incipient OA in middle-aged and elderly people. As approximately every third knee of people in these groups has a damaged meniscus, tears are common incidental findings of knee MRI. However, as most tears do not cause symptoms, careful clinical evaluation is required to determine if a damaged meniscus is likely to directly impact a patient's symptoms. Conservative management of patients with knee pain and a degenerative meniscal tear should be considered as a first-line therapy before surgical treatment is contemplated. Patients with mechanical interference of joint movements, such as painful catching or locking, might need surgical treatment with meniscal repair if possible. In a subset of patients, meniscal resection might relieve pain and other symptoms that potentially originate directly from the torn meniscus. However, the possibility of an increased risk of OA if functional meniscal tissue is removed cannot be overlooked.
Risk factors for medial meniscal pathology on knee MRI in older US adults: a multicentre prospective cohort study. Englund, M.; Felson, D. T.; Guermazi, A.; Roemer, F. W.; Wang, K.; Crema, M.

Risk factors for medial meniscal pathology on knee MRI in older US adults: a multicentre prospective cohort study.
OBJECTIVES: Meniscal pathology in which the aetiology is often unclear is a frequent finding on knee MRI. This study investigates potential risk factors for medial meniscal lesions or extrusion in middle-aged and elderly persons.
METHODS: Prospective cohort study using population-based subjects from Birmingham, Alabama and Iowa City, Iowa, USA (the Multicenter Osteoarthritis Study). 644 men and women aged 50-79 years with or at high risk of knee osteoarthritis (Kellgren and Lawrence grade 0-2) but with normal medial meniscal status at baseline were studied. Paired baseline and 30-month 1.0 T knee MRI were scored for meniscal lesions and extrusion (pathology) and the following systemic, knee-specific and compartment-specific potential risk factors were evaluated: age, sex, body mass index, bony enlargement of finger joints, knee trauma, leg-length inequality and knee alignment.
RESULTS: Of 791 knees, 77 (9.7%) had medial meniscal pathology at 30 months follow-up. 61 of the 77 (81%) had no report of trauma during follow-up. Including all potential risk factors in the multivariable model, the adjusted OR for medial meniscal pathology was 4.14 (95% CI 2.06 to 8.31) for knee trauma during follow-up, 1.64 (1.00 to 2.70) for five or more bony enlargements of finger joints (vs ≤ 4) and 2.00 (1.18 to 3.40) for varus alignment (vs not varus) at baseline examination. Obesity was a risk factor for the development of meniscal extrusion, OR 3.04 (1.04 to 8.93) but not for meniscal lesions, OR 1.15 (0.52 to 2.54).
CONCLUSIONS: Apart from knee trauma, possible generalised osteoarthritis, expressed as multiple bony enlargements of finger joints, varus alignment and obesity are risk factors for medial meniscal pathology.
Incidental meniscal findings on knee MRI in middle-aged and elderly persons. Englund, M.; Guermazi, A.; Gale, D.; Hunter, D. J.; Aliabadi, P.; Clancy, M.; and Felson, D. T. The New England journal of medicine, 359(11): 1108--1115. September 2008.
Incidental meniscal findings on knee MRI in middle-aged and elderly persons.
BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee is often performed in patients who have knee symptoms of unclear cause. When meniscal tears are found, it is commonly assumed that the symptoms are attributable to them. However, there is a paucity of data regarding the prevalence of meniscal damage in the general population and the association of meniscal tears with knee symptoms and with radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis.
METHODS: We studied persons from Framingham, Massachusetts, who were drawn from census-tract data and random-digit telephone dialing. Subjects were 50 to 90 years of age and ambulatory; selection was not made on the basis of knee or other joint problems. We assessed the integrity of the menisci in the right knee on 1.5-tesla MRI scans obtained from 991 subjects (57% of whom were women). Symptoms involving the right knee were evaluated by questionnaire.
RESULTS: The prevalence of a meniscal tear or of meniscal destruction in the right knee as detected on MRI ranged from 19% (95% confidence interval [CI], 15 to 24) among women 50 to 59 years of age to 56% (95% CI, 46 to 66) among men 70 to 90 years of age; prevalences were not materially lower when subjects who had had previous knee surgery were excluded. Among persons with radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis (Kellgren-Lawrence grade 2 or higher, on a scale of 0 to 4, with higher numbers indicating more definite signs of osteoarthritis), the prevalence of a meniscal tear was 63% among those with knee pain, aching, or stiffness on most days and 60% among those without these symptoms. The corresponding prevalences among persons without radiographic evidence of osteoarthritis were 32% and 23%. Sixty-one percent of the subjects who had meniscal tears in their knees had not had any pain, aching, or stiffness during the previous month.
CONCLUSIONS: Incidental meniscal findings on MRI of the knee are common in the general population and increase with increasing age.
