Actual Primary Completion Date : July 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : July 2010


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Methylprednisolone
Infiltration of 40 mg of methylprednisolone acetate plus 1 mL of xylocaine
Drug: EXPERIMENTAL
Infiltration of 40 mg of methylprednisolone acetate plus 1 mL of xylocaine and Diclofenac sodium 100 mg PO QD for 10 days
Other Name: DEPOMEDROL
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Infiltration of 1 mL of xylocaine
Drug: PLACEBO

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. WOMAC score [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

    The WOMAC (Westren Ontario and McMaster Universities) index is used to assess patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee using 24 parameters. It can be used to monitor the course of the disease or to determine the effectiveness of anti-rheumatic medications.

    Pain, Stiffness and Physical functionVisual analogue scale (VAS) may be used ranging from 0 to 10.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. VAS satisfaction [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Visual Analoge Scale for satisfaction

  2. Improvement [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Percentage of improvement

  3. SAFETY [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Pain at infiltration site, ecchymosis, bleeding, paresthesias, skin infection, anaphilaxy, vasovagal reaction
