BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the major causes of death in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) during long-term follow-up. This study investigated risk factors for cardiovascular events (CVE) and CVD-related mortality in Chinese AAV patients. METHODS: Five hundred and four AAV patients in our center were retrospectively included. The predictive value of variables associated with CVE and CVD-related mortality were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: The Medicare federal insurance program is the most common United States insurer of patients with systemic vasculitis (SV). We compared healthcare utilization and expenditures for Medicare beneficiaries with versus without SV. METHODS: This national, retrospective study used 2010 claims and enrollment data for a 100% cohort of Medicare Part A and B beneficiaries with ≥1 claim including a diagnosis for a form of SV (n = 176,498), and a randomly selected group of non-SV beneficiaries (n = 46,561)...

OBJECTIVE: To propose draft classification criteria for early stage osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee for use in a primary care setting. METHODS: A group of basic scientists, physician-scientists, rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, and physiotherapists in a workshop setting discussed potential classification criteria for early osteoarthritis of the knee. The workshop was divided into sessions around relevant topics with short state of the art presentations followed by breakout sessions, consensus discussions, and consolidation into a consensus document...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate potential bias in scores of the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) related to socio-demographic (SD) background of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Data from the Quantitative Standard Monitoring of Rheumatoid Arthritis study (QUEST-RA), comprising 9022 patients were analysed. Physical function was assessed through 30 items of four HAQ versions: the HAQ-Disability scale, HAQ-II, modified HAQ and multi-dimensional HAQ (MD-HAQ)...

INTRODUCTION: Distal esophageal baseline impedance (BI) levels reflect the esophageal mucosal integrity in reflux disease. Systemic sclerosis (SSc) could potentially affect the integrity of esophageal mucosa and consequently impair distal and proximal BI levels, but data in this regard are lacking. AIM AND METHODS: We aimed to prospectively investigate and compare BI levels among non-erosive reflux disease (NERD), SSc patients, and healthy controls (HCs). Consecutive patients with reflux symptoms and well-defined diagnosis of SSc underwent upper endoscopy and, in case of no lesions encountered, manometry and impedance-pH testing off-therapy...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the effect of complete recovery (CR), partial recovery (PR), and no recovery (NR) of proteinuria at 2 years from the diagnosis of LN on long-term renal and extra-renal outcomes. METHODS: Patients with LN and proteinuria attending the Lupus Center from 1970 to 2015 were analyzed. At 2 years from diagnosis of LN, patients were divided into three groups (CR, PR, and NR), and long-term outcomes were studied up to 15 years or last visit available...

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Asian patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to evaluate the impact of anti-rheumatic treatment on the development of CVD. METHODS: A retrospective cohort of Asian patients with RA was established to identify the incidence rate (IR) of CVD in RA patients. The cohort was generated using the Korean National Healthcare claims database, which contained claims from Jan 2009 to Dec 2013. A total of 137,512 RA patients were identified; individuals with a history of CVD for 6 months or more before the index date were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Indigenous populations of Canada, America, Australia, and New Zealand have increased rates and severity of rheumatic disease. Our objective was to summarize mortality outcomes and explore disease and social factors related to mortality. METHODS: A systematic search was performed in medical (Medline, EMBASE, and CINAHL), Indigenous and conference abstract databases (to June 2015) combining search terms for Indigenous populations and rheumatic diseases...

OBJECTIVES: The presence of tubulointerstitial damage (TID) on renal biopsy is considered to be a late sequela of lupus nephritis (LN). The objective of this study was to determine if TID predicts progression to end stage renal disease (ESRD) in LN patients without advanced kidney disease. METHODS: All SLE patients with an index biopsy consistent with LN between January 2005 and July 2015, and eGFR ≥ 30mL/min/1.73m(2) were included. Moderate-to-severe TID was defined as the presence of moderate-to-severe tubular atrophy and/or interstitial fibrosis...

OBJECTIVES: To validate the Fautrel classification criteria for adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) and to compare the discriminative performance to that of the Yamaguchi criteria. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical charts of 426 patients who had serum ferritin level and percentage glycosylated ferritin assayed at the biochemistry laboratory of Bichat Hospital. Medical data were extracted by use of a standardized form. All clinical, biological, and imaging features were collected, as well, evidence favoring an alternative diagnosis, specifically symptoms suggestive of other immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMID) or active infections...

OBJECTIVES: Catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome (CAPS) is a life-threatening disease characterized by multiple small-vessel occlusions of rapid onset. Ischemic pancreatic duct lesions secondary to CAPS have never been reported. METHODS: We describe 4 patients who presented lesions suspected to be intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas following a CAPS. RESULTS: All patients had a history of CAPS months or years before the IPMN diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Adult onset Still's disease is a rare affection classified among non-hereditary autoinflammatory diseases. We here report a case of AOSD revealed during pregnancy with a life-threatening presentation along with a review of 19 cases from literature. CASE: A 38-years old woman was treated in our department for diffuse systemic sclerosis and associated Sjögren syndrome. She was pregnant and presented with acute fever and arthralgias. Laboratory data revealed mild liver cytolysis but a large screening for infectious and auto-immune diseases was negative and hepato-biliar imaging was normal...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterized by vascular dysfunction and excessive fibrosis, involving internal organs including the heart. The estimated prevalence of cardiac involvement in SSc is high and remains subclinical until the late stages. It is either primary, related to myocardial inflammation and fibrosis, or secondary, due to pulmonary arterial hypertension (SSc-PAH) or systemic hypertension, in those patients with renal involvement. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a useful tool for the early assessment of cardiac involvement in SSc...
