AbstractObjectives: Further knowledge about typical hand osteoarthritis (OA) characteristics is needed for the development of new classification criteria for hand OA. Methods: In a cross-sectional multi-centre international study, a convenience sample of patients from primary and secondary/tertiary care with a physician-based hand OA diagnosis (n = 128) were compared with controls with hand complaints due to inflammatory or non-inflammatory conditions (n = 70). We examined whether self-reported, clinical, radiographic and laboratory findings were associated with hand OA using logistic regression analyses. Discrimination between groups was assessed by calculating the area under receiver operating curves (AUC). Results: Strong associations with hand OA were observed for radiographic osteophytes (OR = 1.62, 95% CI 1.40 to 1.88) and joint space narrowing (JSN) (OR = 1.57, 95% CI 1.36 to 1.82) in the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints with excellent discrimination (AUC = 0.82 for both). For osteophytes and JSN, we found acceptable discrimination between groups in the proximal interphalangeal joints (AUC = 0.77 and 0.78, respectively), but poorer discrimination in the first carpometacarpal joints (AUC = 0.67 and 0.63, respectively). Painful DIP joints were associated with hand OA, but were less able to discriminate between groups (AUC = 0.67). Age and family history of OA were positively associated with hand OA, whereas negative associations were found for pain, stiffness and soft tissue swelling in metacarpophalangeal joints, pain and marginal erosions in wrists, longer morning stiffness, inflammatory biomarkers and autoantibodies. Conclusions: Differences in symptoms, clinical findings, radiographic changes and laboratory tests were found in patients with hand OA versus controls. Radiographic OA features, especially in DIP joints, were best suited to discriminate between groups.

The presence of total knee or hip replacements due to osteoarthritis enhances the positive association between hand osteoarthritis and atherosclerosis in women: the AGES-Reykjavik studyJonsson, Helgi; Helgadottir, Gudrun P; Aspelund, Thor; Eiriksdottir, Gudny; Sigurdsson, Sigurdur; Siggeirsdottir, Kristin; Ingvarsson, Thorvaldur; Harris, Tamara B; Launer, Lenore; Gudnason, Vilmundur; et al. (BMJ, 2011-06)OBJECTIVE: /st> This study examines the relationship between total knee replacements (TKR), total hip replacements (THR) or replacements of either joint (total joint replacement; TJR) due to osteoarthritis and atherosclerosis in a large population-based study. METHODS: /st> The participants were 2195 men and 2975 women, mean age 76±6 years. The osteoarthritis data were analysed in relation to measures of atherosclerosis, including carotid artery intima media thickness and plaque severity (ultrasound), coronary and aortic calcifications (CT), cerebral white matter lesions (MRI) and a history of previous cardiac and cerebral events. RESULTS: /st> The prevalence of TKR was 223 (4.3%) and THR 316 (6.1%). The presence of TJR in women was associated with a non-significant trend towards increased carotid plaque severity, coronary calcifications and periventricular white matter hyperintensities (PVH) but not with a history of cardiac or cerebral events. No associations were seen in men. When TJR were grouped according to the presence or absence of hand osteoarthritis (HOA) there was a highly significant association in the order -TJR/-HOA < +TJR/-HOA < -TJR/+HOA < +TJR/+HOA, for carotid plaque severity, coronary calcifications and PVH. CONCLUSION: /st> The presence of TJR did not show a significant independent association with atherosclerosis but enhanced the strength of the positive association between HOA and subclinical atherosclerosis in women.
Hypermobility associated with osteoarthritis of the thumb base: a clinical and radiological subset of hand osteoarthritisJonsson, H; Valtysdottir, S T; Kjartansson, O; Brekkan, A; Department of Rheumatology, University Hospital, Reykjavík, Iceland. (BMJ Publishing Group, 1996-08-01)OBJECTIVES: To study the impact of articular hypermobility on the clinical and radiological features of hand osteoarthritis (OA) and to investigate whether hand osteoarthritis associated with hypermobility should be considered a separate subset of hand OA. METHODS: Fifty consecutive female patients with clinical hand OA and thumb base symptoms were examined for hypermobility according to the Beighton criteria. RESULTS: Thirty one of the 50 patients had hypermobility features (Beighton score > or = 2) and 17 patients fulfilled four or more Beighton criteria. Corresponding figures for 94 control patients were 30 (p < 0.05) and nine (p < 0.001) respectively. Patients with hypermobility features were characterised clinically and radiologically by fewer and less severely involved interphalangeal joints. Radiologically, two fairly distinct subsets could be identified: Severe interphalangeal OA in which the prevalence of hypermobility was similar to controls, and patients with predominant involvement of the first carpometacarpal joint (CMC 1), most of whom had evidence of hypermobility. CONCLUSION: A causal relation exists between articular hypermobility and development of thumb base OA, and hypermobility associated hand OA constitutes a definite clinical and radiological subset of hand OA. In the clinical setting, the easily applied hypermobility criterion of passive dorsiflexion of the fifth finger > or = 90 degrees is useful in identifying most patients with hand OA and hypermobility.
Evaluation of shared genetic aetiology between osteoarthritis and bone mineral density identifies SMAD3 as a novel osteoarthritis risk locus.Hackinger, Sophie; Trajanoska, Katerina; Styrkarsdottir, Unnur; Zengini, Eleni; Steinberg, Julia; Ritchie, Graham R S; Hatzikotoulas, Konstantinos; Gilly, Arthur; Evangelou, Evangelos; Kemp, John P; et al. (Oxford University Press, 2017)Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common complex disease with high public health burden and no curative therapy. High bone mineral density (BMD) is associated with an increased risk of developing OA, suggesting a shared underlying biology. Here, we performed the first systematic overlap analysis of OA and BMD on a genome wide scale. We used summary statistics from the GEFOS consortium for lumbar spine (n = 31,800) and femoral neck (n = 32,961) BMD, and from the arcOGEN consortium for three OA phenotypes (hip, ncases=3,498; knee, ncases=3,266; hip and/or knee, ncases=7,410; ncontrols=11,009). Performing LD score regression we found a significant genetic correlation between the combined OA phenotype (hip and/or knee) and lumbar spine BMD (rg=0.18, P = 2.23 × 10-2), which may be driven by the presence of spinal osteophytes. We identified 143 variants with evidence for cross-phenotype association which we took forward for replication in independent large-scale OA datasets, and subsequent meta-analysis with arcOGEN for a total sample size of up to 23,425 cases and 236,814 controls. We found robustly replicating evidence for association with OA at rs12901071 (OR 1.08 95% CI 1.05-1.11, Pmeta=3.12 × 10-10), an intronic variant in the SMAD3 gene, which is known to play a role in bone remodeling and cartilage maintenance. We were able to confirm expression of SMAD3 in intact and degraded cartilage of the knee and hip. Our findings provide the first systematic evaluation of pleiotropy between OA and BMD, highlight genes with biological relevance to both traits, and establish a robust new OA genetic risk locus at SMAD3.
