OBJECTIVES This retrospective study aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with delayed wound healing (DWH) after orthopedic surgery in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients treated with biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs). METHODS We reviewed medical records of 276 orthopedic procedures for 187 RA patients treated with bDMARDs. As a preoperative nutritional status assessment, we evaluated body mass index (BMI), prognostic nutritional index (PNI), and controlling nu...

Background: It has been suggested that perioperative use of biological disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients carries risks for the surgical-site infection and the delayed wound healing (DWH); however, the risk of DWH with perioperative use of bDMARDs has not reached a general consensus. Objectives: This retrospective study aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with DWH after orthopedic surgery in RA patients treated with bDMARDs. Method...

Background: Several studies demonstrated that total power Doppler (PD) signal can predict radiographic progression as a change in total van der Heijde-modified total Sharp score (mTSS) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. However, in some studies, radiographic progression was observed in a different joint compared with the site of a positive PD signal at baseline in many cases. Objectives: The aim of this study was to identify the clinical factor of RA patients in association with radiographic...

: Objectives: The aim of the current study was to investigate the pattern of extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) insertion macroscopically and histologically using cadaveric thumbs, and to compare the incidence of different insertions with that of thumb boutonniere deformity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients who required surgical reconstruction.Methods: We examined 103 thumbs of 58 adult cadavers with no evidence of RA, and reviewed the surgical records of 28 thumbs of 23 RA patients who underwen...
