AbstractDuring the last two decades, improving the quality and safety of healthcare has become a focus in rheumatology. Widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) and the availability of digital data have the potential to drive quality improvement, improve patient outcomes, and prevent adverse events. In the coming years, developing and leveraging tools within the EHR will be the key to making the next big strides in improving the health of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic diseases, including building EHR infrastructure to capture patient outcomes and developing automated methods to retrieve i...

ConclusionIsolated PCL tears remain a rare injury with an estimated annual incidence of 2 per 100,000 persons. Patients with isolated PCL tears have a significantly higher risk of symptomatic arthritis than patients without PCL tears. Older age at injury is associated with a higher risk of arthritis and the need for TKA. The results of this study can be used to educate patients about the natural history of isolated PCL tears and provide a baseline of expectations for the future development of arthritis and subsequent meniscal injury following isolated PCL injury.Level of evidenceRetrospective comparative study, Level III.

Conclusions: We have noted a minimal change in the disease pattern over the 28 years in Saudi Arabia. The management of invasive GAS infection depends on an accurate and timely diagnosis with an appropriate use of antimicrobial therapy. The highest risks appear to be related to chronic illness. Invasive Group A Streptococcal infection is known to have a high mortality rate. PMID: 28917068 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn this review, we synthesize current data on non-adherence across inflammatory arthritides and explore (1) the effects of economic factors on non-adherence and (2) the impacts of non-adherence on economic outcomes.Recent FindingsRecent evidence demonstrates medication non-adherence rates as high as 74% in ankylosing spondylitis (AS), 90% in gout, 50% in psoriatic arthritis (PsA), 75% in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and 82% in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).SummaryThe effects of socioeconomic factors have been studied most in RA and SLE but with inconsistent findings. Nonetheless, the evidence po...

AbstractIntroductionCelecoxib is an effective treatment for pain associated with osteoarthritis. There are differences in patient demographics among ethnic groups, with Asian populations typically smaller in body size. As a consequence, there may be a perception that celecoxib is less effective, or has poorer tolerability in Asian patients.MethodsThis analysis compares data from two multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, active-comparator trials of celecoxib for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee: one study in Asian patients and the other in a mixed population comprised mostly of non-Asian pati...
