Cardiovascular risk comorbidities in rheumatoid arthritis patients and the use of anti-rheumatic drugs: a cross-sectional real-life study
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic and immune-mediated inflammatory disease that affects joints, connective and fibrous tissue, muscles, and tendons with preferential involvement in the third to fifth decade of life [1, 2]. Additionally, it causes lower life expectancy in 3 to 10 years and higher mortality rate in affected population compared to the general population [1, 3]. RA... Lire la suite

Acute Pyogenic Osteomyelitis of the Pubic Bone in a Patient with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Mimicking Fracture of the Pubic Bone and Periprosthetic Joint...
Osteomyelitis of the pubic bone is a rare clinical condition and accounts for 2% of all haematogenous osteomyelitis in bone [1, 2]. Risk factors include intravenous drug use, pelvic surgery such as urological or obstetric, immunosuppression, and being an athlete [3, 4]. The most common organism causing infection is Staphylococcus aureus, with Pseudomonas aeruginosa seen most commonly in intravenous... Lire la suite

Plasma interferon-alpha is associated with double-positivity for autoantibodies but is not a predictor of remission in early rheumatoid arthritis—a...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease characterized by joint inflammation, which if untreated may lead to progressive bone destruction. Genetic and environmental factors contribute to the predisposition towards disease development, including smoking and genes of the type I interferon (IFN) pathway [1–3]. The majority of patients with RA have autoantibodies against the Fc portion of IgG... Lire la suite

Stapes and Stapes Revision Surgery: Preoperative Air-Bone Gap Is a Prognostic Marker
Otosclerosis is a disease of the otic and labyrinthine capsules which is characterized by progressive hearing loss and tinnitus, potentially leading to severe hypoacusis (1-4). Based on the localization of the otosclerotic focus, different types of hearing loss evolve, usually a conductive or mixed hearing loss and rarely an isolated sensorineural type (5,6). Stapes surgery is an effective treatment... Lire la suite
