    Author : Anna Appelgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adjuvant; Arthritis; Calcitonin gene-related peptide; Glucocorticosteroids; Hippocampus; Hyperalgesia; Hypothalamus; Hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis; Intra-articular temperature; Neurokinin A; Neuropeptides; Neuropeptide Y; Nociception; Pain; Pituitary; Pressure pain threshold; Rheumatoid arthritis; Substance P; Synovial fluid; Temporomandibularjoint; Visual analog scale;

    Abstract : Involvement of the peripheral and central nervous systems in the pathophysiology of arthritis has been suggested and neuropeptides are thought to participate in the mediation and modulation of the inflammatory process. The main objective of the clinical studies was to investigate the relationship between the presence of neuropeptides in the synovial fluid of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the stomatognathic symptoms and signs, including the intra-articular temperature (IAT), in patients with TMJ arthritis.

    Abstract : Whiplash trauma, a hyperextension-flexion trauma to the neck that is often related to a car accident, affects tens of thousands in Sweden every year. A significant proportion will develop long-term symptoms including neck pain and dysfunction – this is embraced as Whiplash associated disorders (WAD). READ MORE

  3. 3. Temporomandibular joint involvement by systemic inflammatory disease with reference to pain modulation and joint tissue destruction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Odontology

    Abstract : Systemic inflammatory diseases may cause progressive destruction in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Involvement of this joint is associated with many clinical signs and symptoms of which pain is a major problem. READ MORE

  4. 4. On costochondral grafts replacing mandibular condyles in juvenile chronic arthritis. A clinical, histological and experimental study

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Börje Svensson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; juvenile chronic arthritis; temporomandibular joints; temporomandibular disorders; costochondral grafts; growth; revascularisation; microangiography; fluorochrome labelling.;

    Abstract : In children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA), disturbances of mandibular growth and function may result in involvement of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). The aim of this thesis was to study the stomatognathic system in JCA children and long-term effects on facial growth of treatment comprising replacement of arthritic mandibular condyles with autogenous costochondral grafts (CCGs) during growth.
