Abstract Calcification in hyaline and fibrocartilage is caused by the deposition of calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate, commonly referred to as chondrocalcinosis. Clinically, this can lead to arthritis symptoms similar to a gout attack -"pseudogout". Nonetheless, also chronic or asymptomatic disease courses are possible. The prevalence of chondrocalcinosis increases with age. The diagnostic workup of degenerative joint disease, therefore, often reveals calcifications of articular cartilage as harmless incidental findings. However, particularly in patients younger than 60 years of age, chondrocalci...

In this study, SUA, CRP, creatinine, MCP-1, IFN- α2, IFN-γ, Il-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-17a, IL-18, IL-23, IL-33, TNF-α, and allantoin levels were measured prior to and after 3 months of TNFis treatment in patients with SARDs. The values obtained in the biochemical assays were then tested for associations with the patients’ demograp hic and disease-related data. A total of 128 patients (rheumatoid arthritis,n = 44; ankylosing spondylitis,n = 45; psoriatic arthritis,n = 23; and adults with juvenile idiopathic arthritis,n = 16) ...

ConclusionSurvival post ‐ACS is similar with and without the presence of gout. People with gout are at an increased risk of readmission for heart failure and have longer hospital stays. Risk of these events increases in parallel with increases in SU levels.

CONCLUSION: Only half of patients attended the planned follow-up visits, indicating low awareness for gout. Of those attending follow-up, only approximately 50% had achieved the serum urate target at 12 months. Although new treatments are available, care for gout patients remains insufficient, notably in difficult-to-treat multimorbid patient subsets as described in this cohort.
