This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of locomotive syndrome, sarcopenia, and frailty and clarify their co-existence in a population-based cohort. The third survey of Research on Osteoarthritis/Osteoporosis Against Disability (ROAD) study was conducted between 2012 and 2013, examining 963 subjects (aged ≥ 60 years; 321 men, 642 women). Locomotive syndrome, sarcopenia, and frailty were defined using three tests proposed by Japanese Orthopaedic Association, Asian Working Group for ...

OBJECTIVE: There is little information on falls by sex and age strata in Japan, and few factors associated with falls have been established. However, the association between bone and joint diseases and falls remains unclear. We examined prevalence of falls by sex and age strata, determined its association with radiographic osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee and lumbar spine, and determined knee and lower back pain after single and multiple falls.

METHODS: A questionnaire assessed the number ...

Musculoskeletal diseases, especially osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP), impair activities of daily life (ADL) and quality of life (QOL) in the elderly. Although preventive strategies for these diseases are urgently required in an aging society, epidemiological data on these diseases are scant. To clarify the prevalence of knee osteoarthritis (KOA), lumbar spondylosis (LS), and osteoporosis (OP) in Japan, and estimate the number of people with these diseases, we started a ...

OBJECTIVE: Although hip osteoarthritis (OA) is a major cause of hip pain and disability in elderly people, few epidemiologic studies have been performed. We investigated the prevalence of radiographic hip OA and its association with hip pain in Japanese men and women using a large-scale population of a nationwide cohort study, Research on Osteoarthritis/osteoporosis Against Disability (ROAD).

METHODS: From the baseline survey of the ROAD study, 2975 participants (1043 men and 1932 ...

The present cross-sectional study investigated the prevalence of sarcopenia and clarified its associated factors in 1,000 elderly participants of Japanese population-based cohorts. Exercise habit in middle age was associated with low prevalence of sarcopenia in older age, suggesting that it is a protective factor against sarcopenia in older age.IntroductionThe present study investigated the prevalence of sarcopenia using the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP) ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the incidence and progression of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) and the incidence of knee pain, and their risk factors in Japan, using the large-scale population of the nationwide cohort study ROAD (Research on Osteoarthritis/osteoporosis Against Disability).

METHODS: Subjects from the ROAD study who had been recruited in 2005-2007 were followed up with knee radiography 3 years later. A total of 2,262 paired radiographs (74.4% of the original sample) were ...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional surveys of health-related quality of life (QOL) in subjects with low back pain and knee pain using a population-based cohort.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the present study was to clarify the impact of low back pain and knee pain on QOL in men. In addition, we analyzed the impacts of vertebral fracture (VFx), lumbar spondylosis, and knee osteoarthritis (OA) on the magnitude of QOL loss in men with low back pain and knee pain.

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the prevalence of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) and knee pain in the Japanese elderly using a large-scale population of a nationwide cohort study, Research on Osteoarthritis Against Disability (ROAD), and examined their association.

METHODS: From the baseline survey of the ROAD study, 2,282 participants > or =60 years (817 men and 1,465 women) living in urban, mountainous and seacoast communities were analyzed. The radiographic severity at both knees ...

The prevalence of radiographic cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) in 1,562 Japanese from a population-based cohort was 1.9 %. The presence of OPLL showed a significant association with the femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD), presence of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and plasma pentosidine levels. Only one new case of radiographic OPLL was detected, but OPLL progressed in all affected subjects.IntroductionThe purpose of this study ...

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the association of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) with overweight (OW), hypertension (HTN), dyslipidemia (DL), and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), which are components of metabolic syndrome (MS), in a Japanese population.

METHODS: We enrolled 1690 participants (596 men, 1094 women) from the large-scale cohort study Research on Osteoarthritis Against Disability (ROAD), begun in 2005 to clarify epidemiologic features of OA in Japan. KOA was evaluated by the ...

OBJECTIVES: Although lumbar spondylosis is a major cause of low back pain and disability in elderly people, few epidemiological studies have been performed. The prevalence of radiographic lumbar spondylosis was investigated in a large-scale population study and the association with low back pain was examined.

METHODS: From a nationwide cohort study (Research on Osteoarthritis Against Disability; ROAD), 2288 participants aged > or =60 years (818 men and 1470 women) living in urban, ...

We here propose guidelines for the diagnosis and management of Paget's disease of bone (PDB) in Japan. These guidelines provide basic information on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis, indications for treatment, and available therapy, including orthopedic surgery. PDB is a chronic disorder characterized by focal abnormalities of bone turnover. The characteristic feature of PDB is excessive osteoclastic bone resorption coupled to increased and ...

OBJECTIVE: Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a major public health issue causing chronic pain and disability. However, there is little information on the impact of this disease on quality of life (QOL) in Japanese men and women. The objective of the present study was to clarify the impact of radiographic and symptomatic knee OA on QOL in Japan.

METHODS: This study examined the association of radiographic and symptomatic knee OA with QOL parameters such as the Medical Outcomes Study Short ...

In this 4-year follow-up study including 1083 subjects (≥ 60 years), the prevalence of frailty was estimated to be 5.6%; osteoporosis was found to be significantly associated with frailty. Moreover, the presence of both osteoporosis and sarcopenia increased the risk of frailty compared to the presence of osteoporosis or sarcopenia alone.IntroductionThis study aims to examine the contribution of sarcopenia and osteoporosis to the occurrence of frailty using 4-year follow-up information of ...
