Session Type: ACR Poster Session A
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed. Consecutive patients with RA and PsA attended in a hospital were selected and their medical records reviewed. Sociodemographic and clinical variables including disease duration and activity (DAS28), physical function (Health Assessment Questionnaire, HAQ), handgrip strength in both hands (using an isometric hand dynamometer), radiographic damage (modified Sharp/van der Heijde score (SHS)), and pharmacological treatments were collected following a standardized protocol. Descriptive and bivariate analyses were performed. Multivariate linear regression models completed were to assess disability associated factors.
Results are expressed as coefficient (coef) and 95% confidence interval (CI). Results:
Conclusion: In our study RA patients presented more general and hand disability compared to PsA patients. Other factors as female sex are also associated with poorer function.
