Rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory form of arthritis targets synovial tissue and leads to inflammation of joints following bone, cartilage and tendon damage. Various medications are present to manage the disease, but due to adverse effects of some medicines, researchers identified Iguratimod, a newly developed DMARD efficacy among the RA patients.

Introduction
The study aimed to evaluate the middle-term result of Iguratimod (IGU) for rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

The cystic lesions of the knee can frequently be detected using magnetic resonance trials. However, pathogenesis as per histo- and cytopathological examination is not familiar and attempted to assess using the following analysis.

Introduction
Synovial cyst of knee cruciate ligament (SCKCL) is an exceptional condition but when occur causes severe knee pain. The aetiology of SCKCL is also not well-known. The study intended to evaluate the SCKCL pathogenesis by cyto- and histopathological analysis.

Bone mineral density is a valuable clinical tool to diagnose osteoporosis but manifests observed decline in fractures partially. Another property is the 'bone quality' which helps the bone to resist fracture can also contribute to determining fracture rates postoperatively. This study helps to elucidate the bone quality effects on fracture rates after the treatment.

Introduction
Osteoporosis and reduced bone density are associated with high fracture rate and severity. The impact of bone density on fracture rate and related treatments are well known but how the quality of bone influence the clinical results after fracture fixation is still unexplored. This study aimed to find this association.

Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation is an approach treats chronic pain by stimulating dorsal root ganglion (DRG) particularly at places where conventional spinal cord stimulation not effective. This study helps to elucidate Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation efficacy in particular real-world clinical context circumstances.

Introduction
Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation is a robust and reliable approach the provide relief from pain for a number of problems. This prospective observational investigation was designed to verify the efficacy of this approach in a typical real-world clinical context.

Ankle arthrodesis is a method that provides relief from pain and enhances the functional capability of patients suffered from ankle arthritis. The question here is which type of ankle arthrodesis; Ilizarov external fixator stabilization or internal stabilization with screws provides better outcomes. This study explains the comparable efficacy of both methods using various scales.

Introduction
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the ankle joint is one of the major problems around the world. The study aimed to check whether sports and physical activity levels of a person influenced by the types of ankle joint arthrodesis stabilization using (1) the GRIMBY scale, (2) the LOWER LIMB Activity scale, (3) the VAS (visual analogue scale) ACTIVITY scale, (4) the UCLA activity scale, and (5) the FAAM (foot and ankle ability measure) SPORT scale.
