A new Swedish study published in the journal Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases suggests that optimizing control of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease may help lower overall risk for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in those with RA.
Uveitis may occur in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Behcet’s disease, and HLA B27-associated seronegative spondyloarthropathies. Prompt initiation of treatment may improve clinical outcomes, emphasizing the importance of collaboration between rheumatologists and ophthalmologists.
If conservative treatment with medications such as dihydropyridine, calcium channel blockers, alpha-adrenergic blockers, and phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors is unsuccessful, clinicians can consider chemical sympathectomy, botulinum neurotoxin injection, and fat pad grafting.
Only 1 in 4 adults was able to accurately estimate their risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease within 10 percentage points of what researchers calculated.
Investigators examined whether intra-abdominal fat is independently associated with hyperuricemia.
A new study published suggests that it may be time to produce new algorithms for assessing cardiovascular disease risk in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
