The case is reported of a successful transcatheter implantation of an Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve (29 mm) into a failing tricuspid bioprosthesis (Sorin Pericarbon, 31 mm). The procedure was performed in a 69-year-old woman with post-rheumatic mitral and tricuspid valve disease. Multiple previous cardiac surgeries precluded the use of another surgical approach. A large, organized, two-piece thrombus in the enlarged right atrium was not considered an absolute contraindication to the procedure. The SAPIEN 3 valve was implanted under general anesthesia, via a femoral venous access, under three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography guidance...

Tricuspid valve disease has been neglected for a long time by cardiologists and surgeons, but for some years now leakage of tricuspid valve has been demonstrated as a prognostic factor in the evolution of patients with left heart valve disease undergoing surgery. Several techniques for plastic repair of tricuspid valve have been developed and the published studies differ on the results of these techniques; we conducted this study to assess the results of plastic repair of tricuspid valve in a population of patients with a high prevalence of rheumatic disease and to compare Carpentier's ring annuloplasty techniques with DEVEGA plasty...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis is characterized by the production of eicosanoids, cytokines, adhesion molecules, infiltration of T and B lymphocytes in the synovium and oxygen reduction accompanied by the cartilage degradation. Eicosanoids are responsible for the progressive destruction of cartilage and bone, however neither steroids, nor the non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), cannot slow down cartilage and bone destruction providing only symptomatic improvement. The current rheumatoid arthritis treatment options include mainly the use of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, the corticosteroids, the NSAIDs and biological agents...

The immunomodulatory effects of adipokines have been extensively studied in rheumatic diseases, and there is a paucity of information regarding their effects on bone metabolism.The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between serum adipokines levels and radiographic progression over 2 years in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).In this preliminary longitudinal study, we prospectively recruited 20 consecutive male patients with AS and 11 gender- and age-matched healthy subjects. At the baseline and 2-year follow-up, serum adiponectin, leptin, resistin, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interleukin (IL)-6, and Dickkopf-1(DKK-1) levels were measured in AS patients using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays; these measurements were only performed at the baseline for healthy controls...

OBJECTIVES: Calprotectin is an inflammatory marker of interest in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We evaluated whether the level of calprotectin was associated with disease activity, and if it was predictive of treatment response and radiographic progression in patients with early RA. METHODS: Plasma from disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD)-naïve patients with RA fulfilling 2010 American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism classification criteria with symptom duration <2 years was analysed for calprotectin at baseline, and after 1, 3 and 12 months...

BACKGROUND: In 2001, the European League Against Rheumatism developed and disseminated the first guidelines for musculoskeletal (MS) ultrasound (US) in rheumatology. Fifteen years later, the dramatic expansion of new data on MSUS in the literature coupled with technological developments in US imaging has necessitated an update of these guidelines. OBJECTIVES: To update the existing MSUS guidelines in rheumatology as well as to extend their scope to other anatomic structures relevant for rheumatology...

REVIEW
M Rudwaleit, K Walscheid, A Heiligenhaus
Acute anterior uveitis (AAU) is the most frequent uveitis subtype. It is often associated with HLA-B27 and with inflammatory rheumatic diseases, in particular with spondyloarthritis (SpA), which itself is strongly associated with HLA-B27. About 40-60% of patients with AAU have an associated spondyloarthritis, and 20-40% of patients with spondyloarthritis also have uveitis. The incidence of AAU in patients with SpA clearly correlates with disease duration. The AAU has an acute onset, usually affects only one eye at a time, and shows a tendency for recurrence...

The present document is a position statement of the Mexican College of Rheumatology on the use of biosimilars in rheumatic diseases. This position considers that biosimilars should be considered as interchangeable, that automatic substitution without previous notice in stable patients during follow-up is not ethical, that the approval of a biosimilar should only be given after exhaustive review of preclinical and clinical data marked by Mexican regulations, that it should be clearly stated in the nomenclature of biologic drugs which is the innovator and which is the biosimilar, that it is not correct to choose a biosimilar as treatment based only on economic reasons or extrapolate indications based only on the approval of the innovator and in the absence of safety and efficacy data for the biosimilar...
