Snapping knee syndrome on the medial side is uncommon. We present the case of a patient with snapping knee osteoarthritis of the sartorius of knee osteoarthritis. In addition, we found that although tendon tension is crucial for the occurrence of snapping syndrome, the impingement site determines the occurrence of snapping pains.

Diffuse skeletal hyperostosis is a common medical disorder, but its pathophysiology is mostly unclear. During the last four years, an elderly person's spine was scanned repeatedly due to non-specific back pain, but the resulting photos revealed the emergence of a bony bridge in the lumbar spine. This case demonstrates that the inflammatory response to diffuse skeletal hyperostosis can be both acute and long, and that it may be more relevant.

Osteophyte formation in knee osteoarthritis patients is a common radiographic sign of osteoarthritis and limited joint mobility. Some studies reported correlations between osteophyte formation and a high bone mineral density and a high muscle mass, while others found no correlations, while others indicated no correlations. The aim of this investigation was to determine connections of osteophyte formation with bone mineral density and muscle mass. To determine the relationships between knee osteophytes and the study variables, logistic regression and the chi-square test were used. The mean age was 73. 23 u00b1 11. 10 years in the osteophyte group and 72. 86. 23 in the no osteophyte group, while the no osteophyte group had 12. 23. 23 years. In the no osteophyte group, the mean body mass index was 24. 15 kg/m2 and 23. 37 u00b1 3. 48 kg/m 2; The osteophyte group had hypertension, so the age group, 73 years old, was expected to have OA and hypertension as a result of other metabolic disorders, and the femoral neck T score was higher in the osteophyte group. According to a logistic regression study, the male gender was correlated with less osteophyte formation, and increased muscle loss was associated with elevated muscle loss. Femoral neck T score was associated with the occurrence of osteophyte formation. Conclusions The results revealed a correlation of knee osteophyte formation with the femoral neck T score and hypertension, but no link was found with muscle mass. 2022 The femoral neck T score is one of the key points of knee osteophyte formation, but not with muscle mass.
