Chronic fluorosis: the disease and its anaesthetic implications..
Abstract Chronic fluorosis is a widespread disease-related to the ingestion of high levels of fluoride through water and food. Prolonged ingestion of fluoride adversely affects the teeth, bones and other organs and alters their anatomy and physiology. Fluoride excess is a risk factor in cardiovascular disease and other major diseases, including hypothyroidism, diabetes and obesity. […]
Fluoride in synovial fluid, bone marrow, and cartilage in patients with osteoarthritis.
Fluorine toxicosis and industry.
The onset of chronic fluorosis is insidious and may be confused with chronic debilitating diseases such as osteoarthritis . . . * https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/5463662/
Treatment of osteoporosis with sodium fluoride: An appraisal.
Crippling fluorosis… is characterized by dense bones, exostoses, neurologic complications due to bony overgrowth, osteoarthritis, and ligamentous calcification. … new bone formed under the stimulus of fluoride administration may exhibit various degrees of osteosclerosis, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and architectural disorganization. Of these manifestations, only osteosclerosis increases bone strength. When fluoride is used therapeutically, therefore, it is […]
Total knee arthroplasty for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis caused by endemic skeletal fluorosis
Sodium fluoride induces apoptosis through the downregulation of hypoxia-inducible factor-1a in primary cultured rat chondrocytes
Results of previous studies have shown that fluoride has a higher and special affinity for calcium in bone tissue, which could result in osteofluorosis (19,20). It has been reported that osteofluorosis may increase the severity of osteoarthritis (OA) characterized by progressive degeneration of articular cartilage (21,22). Chondrocyte apoptosis may be involved in the onset and […]
Clinical features of early stages of occupational fluorosis under the combined and joint effect of production factors
Working conditions in the mining and processing of fluorite and in cryolite and aluminum production remain poor despite the introduction of protective measures. Every year, new cases of fluorosis are diagnosed, and in a number of regions of the country this disease is one of the foremost chronic occupational intoxications. The clinical picture of occupational […]
Endemic fluorosis in Turkish patients: relationship with knee osteoarthritis
Endemic fluorosis may increase the severity of osteoarthritis in the knees. . . . Twelve patients (21.4%) with endemic fluorosis and eight control patients (20%) had grade 2 osteoarthritis, 16 patients (28.6%) with endemic fluorosis and three control patients (7.5%) had grade 3 osteoarthritis, and six patients (10.7%) with endemic fluorosis and one control patient […]
Fluorosis in Aden
The cases to be described here occurred in the Aden Protectorate where for the last 12 years mass screening of the chest to exclude pulmonary tuberculosis has been carried out. The patients had all drunk the brackish water from the wells, and the analysis of the water from a well which was the source of […]
