Conferenceseries L.L.C Conferences invites all the participants from all over the world to attend '8th International Conference of Orthopedic Surgeons and Rheumatology' during March 22-23, 2017 in Rome, Italy which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions. 

Rheumatology 2017 is a global platform to discuss and learn about Rheumatology, Orthopedics and its Associated Diseases, Rheumatic Disorders and Treatment, Soft Tissue Rheumatism, Arthritic Diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis Diagnosis, Therapies for Rheumatic Disorders, Rheumatology Practices, and Diagnosis for Rheumatic Disorders, Orthopedic Trauma, Orthopedic Biomechanics, Medical Instruments in Orthopedics and Rheumatology.  

Track 1: Rheumatoid Arthritis Diagnosis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that primarily affects joints. It happens when the immune system attacks your own tissues and causes joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. It’s not part of normal aging.  It may result in deformed and painful joints, which can lead to loss of function. The disease may also have signs and symptoms in organs other than joints. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not completely understood. The process involves inflammation and fibrosis of the capsule around the joints. It also affects the underlying bone and cartilage. Treatments include both medication and non-pharmacological measures - the goal being to control joint inflammation and prevent joint damage and disability. The causes of Rheumatoid arthritis are not completely understood. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritisis the most common type of arthritis in children under the age of 17. It causes persistent joint pain, swelling and stiffness. Some children may experience symptoms for only a few months, while others have symptoms for the rest of their lives. Some types of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can cause serious complications, such as growth problems and eye inflammation. A TNF inhibitor is a pharmaceutical drug that suppresses response to Tumour (TNF), which is part of the inflammatory response. It is used in the treatment of rheumatic arthritis. Gene expression has recently been at the forefront of advance in personalized medicine, notably in the field of cancer and transplantation, providing a rational for a similar approach in rheumatoid arthritis. While Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drug (DMARD) Therapy also have high impact for Active Rheumatoid Arthritis 

Under this track we shall also discuss the risk factors of Rheumatic Arthritis, application of IL-1 drugs, other treatment measures and care to be take in case of Rheumatic Arthritis.

Track 2: Therapies for Rheumatic Disorders

The physiotherapist’s (PT) role in the management of patients with Rheumatic disease is to work in partnership with the patient to enable them to achieve and maintain optimal function and independence. The physical therapist can help patients manage arthritis pain, promote mobility and day-to-day function, and stay active and independent in home, work, community and leisure settings. Arthroplasty or total joint reconstruction is an orthopedic surgical procedure where the articular surface of a musculoskeletal joint is replaced, remodelled, or realigned by osteotomy or some other procedure. It is an elective procedure that is done to relieve pain and restore function to the joint after damage by arthritis or some other type of trauma.There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but treatment with both medication and non-pharmacological measures can help reduce inflammation in the joints, relieve pain, prevent or slow joint damage, reduce disability and enable you to live as active a life as possible. A variety of drugs - ranging from over-the-counter pain relievers to prescription steroids - are helpful in managing the pain and swelling associated with some rheumatic diseases. In the last decade, there have been significant advances in treating rheumatoid arthritis, especially for patients whose arthritis does not respond to traditional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). The most important advance has been the development of a group of drugs called biologic response modifiers or biologics. There are a number of biologics approved to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Biologics are genetically-engineered proteins derived from human genes. They are designed to inhibit specific components of the immune system that play pivotal roles in fuelling inflammation, which is a central feature of rheumatoid arthritis.

Joint and knee replacement treatment, immune therapy and chemo therapy for arthritis along with the physiotherapeutic treatments, instruments and advances will also be discussed under this track.

Track 3: Rheumatology Practices

Recent advances in the development of novel immunodulatory therapies for various auto immune conditions have revolutionized both clinical practice and research in rheumatology. Biomarkers are chemicals or components of the immune system that can be used to mark or define the level of inflammation or disease, or the responsiveness of a patient to a specific medication. Biomarkers are very important for people with arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Biomarkers are defined as anatomical, physiological, biochemical, molecular parameters or imaging features that can be used to refine diagnosis. The first-line imaging technique for diagnosis inflammation in musculo-skeletal organs in Rheumatoid arthritis is planar X-ray examination, which were for many years the first and the only single tool for Rheumatoid arthritis diagnostics and response evaluation.

Other therapeutic approaches for rheumatic diseases, clinical trials to advance the development of therapies, failed studies experiences and ways to correct them will also be discussed under this track for a better understanding.

Track 4: Diagnosis for Rheumatic Disorders

Musculoskeletal ultrasonography has become an important diagnostic tool in rheumatoid arthritis. It is an imaging modality that utilizes reflected pulses of high-frequency (ultrasonic) sound waves to assess soft tissues, cartilage, bone surfaces, and fluid-containing structures In Germany it is part of the rheumatology training, and many ultrasound courses provide further education. Only in the last five years the international importance of ultrasound in rheumatology has increased dramatically. Sonography can be performed as a bedside procedure and as an extension of the clinical investigation.  It is easily tolerated by the patients, and it can be repeated any time. Schober's test is measurement of lower back mobility is essential in the assessment of lower back pain including ankylosing spondylitis. The purpose of the Schober test is to reflect the lumbar ROM during flexion. An Arthrogram is a diagnostic test is an X-ray examination of a joint such as shoulders, hips and wrist to assess an injury or a symptom you may be experiencing. The test is done by using some special forms of X-ray called fluoroscopy, contrast material containing iodine first injecting contrast which outlines the soft tissue structures in the joint (e.g. ligaments and cartilage) and so they are visible on X-ray or MRI.

Various other tools and techniques available such as cytopathology and chemical pathology, MR Arthrography, low bone marrow density and its relation with the disease, sonography and disease activity measurements in rheumatoid arthritis will be discussed under this track.

Track 5: Rheumatic Disorders and Treatment

Rheumatic disease affects the joints, muscles and connective tissues. Some, like osteoarthritis, are the result of wear and tear. Others, such as rheumatoid arthritis, are immune system problems. Treatment plan will likely include medications, regular exercise, a healthy diet, stress management, and rest. Common Rheumatic disorders are Lyme disease, Systemic lupus Erythematosus, Behcet's Disease, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Rheumatic feverLupus erythematosus is a name given to a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that can involve the heart, joints, skin, and brain. Many rheumatic diseases are chronic conditions. They are unlikely to go away. There may not be a cure for our condition, but effective management is available for most.Many people with rheumatic disease lead happy, satisfying lives year after year.

Other than this other diseases such as Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Scleroderma, Gout and PsedoGout, Sjogren’s syndrome, Vasculitis and Ankylosing Spondylitis, their causes, treatments and clinical research will be discussed.

Track 6: Orthopedic Trauma

Orthopedic trauma  typically involves minimally invasive surgery designed to provide the highest quality results with the lowest possible side effect profile. Osteochondrom or osteocartilaginous exostosis is the most common benign tumor of the bones. The tumors take the form of cartilage-capped bony projections or outgrowth on the surface of bones (exostoses). An osteochondroma looks like a bony projection on the external surface of a bone, like a bony mushroom on a stalk, usually near a growth plate area. It can occur in any bone but is seen most often around the knee or upper arm. Tumors most commonly affect long bones in the leg, pelvis, or scapula. Osteonecrosis or “bone death” is a process where the blood flow to the bone cells greatly decreases; the cells may die, causing the bone to collapse, because the bone and bone marrow of the human body are made of living cells that need a steady blood supply to stay healthy. Osteonecrosis may result from use of glucocorticoid (sometimes called corticosteroid) medicine or from drinking too much alcohol. Osteonecrosis can lead to pain, arthritis and limited use of affected joints. Some people may even need joint replacement surgery. Muscular dystrophies are a group of inherited diseases that damage and weaken your muscles over time. It occurs due to the lack of a protein called dystrophin, which is necessary for normal muscle function. The absence of this protein can cause problems with walking, swallowing, and muscle coordination. Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue. Atrophy and weakness of the limb muscles are extremely common in rheumatoid arthritis, the most likely causes being inhibition and disuse as a result of painful movement.

Other bone disorder, Spine Orthopedics, Spinal disorders and therapies, bone tissue engineering and Scaffold support will also be discussed under this track.

Track 7: Soft Tissue Rheumatism

Soft tissue rheumatism defines a broad range of conditions that are characterized primarily by nonarticular pain,It includes disorders of tendons and their sheaths, ligaments, bursae, joint capsules, muscles, fasciae and others. It is one of the most common and most misunderstood catergories of disorders facing the primary care physician. Mixed connective tissue disease is a rare autoimmune disorder and has signs and symptoms of a combination of disorders – primarily lupus, scleroderma and polymyositis. For this reason, mixed connective tissue disease is sometimes referred to as an overlap disease. Tennis elbow or laternal epicondylitis. occurs after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, near the elbow joint in which the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender, tennis elbow is an acute or chronic inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. Myositis is the chronic inflammation and degeneration of muscle tissue. 50% of the tennis players are affected by tennis elbow during their careers. Finding proper treatments and care measure is a high need.

Serum sickness, Beurger’s Disease, Scurvy, Myofascial Pain are some other disease which will be discussed with their treatments under this track.

Track 8: Orthopedic Biomechanics

Orthopedic surgery is concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means by using medication, exercise and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders Orthopaedic surgeons are trained in the preservation, investigation, and restoration of the form and function of the extremities, spine, and associated structures by medical, surgical, and physical means musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons work closely with other health care providers and often serve as consultants to other physicians. Orthopedic surgeons often are involved in education or research. They may practice in an orthopedic or multi-specialty group, or in a solo practice. It is the medical specialty that involves the treatment of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic provide Orthopedic and sports physical therapy to individuals. 

In this track we shall also discuss joint replacement surgery, spine surgery, children’s orthopaedics, intensive care and other future aspects.

Track 9: Medical Instruments in Orthopedics and Rheumatology

Medical robots  are used in the treatment of orthopedics. For e.g. ROBODOC for the planning and performance of total hip replacement. Robotic systems can be classified into two categories: autonomous and haptic (or surgeon-guided). Passive surgery systems, which represent a third type of technology, have also been adopted recently by orthopaedic surgeons.An orthopaedic mattress is a mattress designed to support the joints, back and overall body. As its name suggests, an orthopedic mattress has been influenced by the medical study of Orthopedics which focuses on disorders or deformities of the spine and joints. Orthopaedic mattresses have, therefore, been created to combat the problems one might experience with a bad back or joints by providing a firm mattress which offers targeted, tailored support. Orthopedic shoes are specially designed shoes that provide support and pain relief for people suffering with some type of pain in the legs, ankles, or feet. The main function of orthopaedic shoes is to provide more support for the feet and ankles than is accomplished by basic footwear. 

Various other products such as orthopedic pillow, orthopedic ankle products, advanced therapies, cure, pain reducers, and advanced injection techniques in Rheumatology will also be highlighted under this track.

Track 10: Arthritic Diseases 

Arthritis is a form of joint disorder. The patient suffering from arthritis has joint inflammation aching, stiffness, and swelling in or around the joints. The term Arthritis is used to describe more than 100 rheumatic conditions is characterized by chronic pain, limited mobility and decreased range of motion. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, a result of trauma to the joint infection of the joint or age. Other arthritis forms are Rheumatoid arthritis, Septic arthritis, Juvenile Idiopathic arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease often described as “wear and tear” arthritis damages cartilage, the cushiony material on the end of the bones. As it wears down, joints hurt and it becomes harder to move. It usually affects the knees, hips, lower back, neck, fingers and feet. . In osteoarthritis limitation in joint motion, joint stability and deformity are caused by damage to articular and periarticular structures. The protective space between bones decreases due to the wearing of cartilages in knee joints. This creates friction between the bones and produce painful bone spurs while it can occur even in young people, the chances of developing osteoarthritis rises after age 45. According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than 27 million people in the U.S. have osteoarthritis, with the knee being one of the most commonly affected areas. Women are more likely to have osteoarthritis then men. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, the most common arthritis in childhood, causes swollen knuckle, a spiking fever, or an unexplained rash. and loss of joint functions. It is an auto inflammatory disease.. The primary goals of treating osteoarthritis of the knee are to relieve the pain and return mobility. The treatment plan will typically include a The treatment plan will typically include a combination of weight loss, exercise, pharmacologic treatments , surgical treatments, injection of corticosteroid into the knee, using devices as braces and surgery.

Rheumatology described as the study of rheumatism which focused on the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases which mainly affects the joints, muscles and the connective tissues around the joints and bones. Nowadays it is a common health problem in the developing world. Around 100 different diseases have been classified within the Rheumatology. These rheumatics’ disease also links with the cardiovascular diseases such as   myocardial infarction and strokes and affects the other parts of the body like lung, kidneys nervous system, skin etc. The disease Rheumatoid Arthritis affects approximately 1% of the total world population in the form of diseases. A complete understanding of the pathophysiological process underlying rheumatic diseases will initiate the development of new drugs.

Market Analysis and Case study of Rheumatic Diseases

Rheumatic’s diseases are cause behind severe long term pain and physical disabilities. According to survey in Europe 20-30 % of adults are affected at any one time. According to British Society of Rheumatology around 10 million people in UK suffer from arthritis of which almost 0.7 million have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis which is rheumatic disorder in the children up to the age of 16, JIA cause joints pain, swelling, warmth, tenderness and stiffness that last for at least 6 weeks. Around 12000 children in UK suffer from idiopathic disorder. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), An estimated 78 million adults at the age of 18 and older will have diagnosed with arthritis by the year 2040 as compared with the 52 million adults in 2010-2012. Two third of those with arthritis will be women.

Highlighting some of the common type of Rheumatic disorders

  • Out of every 1 lakh people 41 are diagnosed with RA.
  • The prevalence varies between 0.3% and 1% and is more common in women and in developed countries, Hormones in both play a role in either preventing or triggering it.
  • RA generally starts at the age of 30-60 and somewhat later in life in men. However RA can strike at any age-even small children can get it. Around 3 lakh children have the juvenile form of rheumatic disease.
  • By the year of 2030, at least 50% of patients suffer from rheumatic diseases in a developing countries are unable to hold down a full time job.

The effect of arthritis on individual is significant. About 22.7 million of the 52.5 million adults with arthritis report the restrictions in their daily work activities due to the arthritis. Functional limitations in daily work activities are common in adults with arthritis; 40% report it is “very difficult” to perform 1 of 9 important daily functional activities. Figure 1 shows the occurrence of certain functional limitations. Impairment in the ability to perform routine activities may interfere with the ability of people to work, function in their community, or care for their family.

Fig.1 Functional limitations among patients with Arthritis

Note:-Functional limitation describe very difficult to cannot do level for the activities mentioned in fig.1

Physical activity and exercise plays a major role in giving a benefit to the people with arthritis by improving pain, function and physical and mental level, many patients reports no free time for physical activities.  24% of adults with arthritis report no leisure time physical activity, a higher proportion in comparison to the adults without arthritis. (18.6%) (Age-adjusted prevalence estimates). The individuals with low level of physical activities have a risk of inactivity associated diseases like cardiovascular, diabetes and functional limitations with obesity.

Figure 2Age- Adjusted Occurrence of Physical Inactivity* among Adults with and without Arthritis

According to the data collected from the Spanish Society for Rheumatology there was new cases of hip fracture within a 14 years period. The increment observed was mainly 64% in women in comparison to 19% in men.  13% of patients suffered from a fracture die after 3 months which rises to 38% after 2 years. 45% of patients suffer from vertebral fracture bear functional damage and 50% are bothering partial or total disability. 

Figure 3.

According to the survey of SPANISH REGISTRY OF ADVERSE EVENTS OF BIOLOGICAL THERAPIES IN RHEUMATIC DISEASES out of 6,754 patients in the hospitals in Spain 56% of those were suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis, 12% from Ankylosing Spondylitis, another 12% from Psoriatic Arthritis and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis counted to 4.9 %.  

 

Figure 4.

Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) are very common among adults. The incidence and prevalence of these rheumatic diseases are high. The existence prevalence of RA in adults is 3.4 percent and it is highly associated with age. Whereas the prevalence is only one percent of adults under the age of 30 and 6.25 % in adults over the age of 70. The lifetime prevalence of rheumatic diseases at the age of 40 in women tends to be higher in comparison to men and becomes twice than as in men after the age of 70. The burden originate by Rheumatic diseases is high. Not only they impair function and quality of life but also the important cause of chronic health problems (approx. 40 percent), long-term affliction (approx. 50 percent) and short-term affliction (approx. 30 percent) compared to the other common diagnoses. The number of people with arthritis and associated diseases is projected to 67 million by 2030.
