Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of small joints of the hands and feetis still "the gold standard" in detecting early inflammatory changes in the patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Radiographic assessment has only limited value in early diagnostic of RA. The limited accessibility of MRI makes both ultrasound (US) and Power Doppler (PD) of small joints(More)
The main aim was to gain structured insight into the use of musculoskeletal ultrasonography (MSUS) in routine rheumatology practices in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries. In a cross-sectional, observational, international, multicenter survey, a questionnaire was sent to investigational sites in CEE countries. Data on all subsequent routine MSUS(More)
Sažetak Terapijske opcije za liječenje bolesnika s težim formama spondiloartritisa prilično su ograničene. U pregledu su prikazana novija saznanja i lijekovi u liječenju spon-diloartritisa. Danas postoje brojni jasni dokazi da je terapija lijekovima usmjerenim prema tumor-necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alfa) vrlo učinkovita u bolesnika sa SpA, posebice u(More)
Sažetak 1994. godine skupina stručnjaka okupljena od strane Me-đunarodnog udruženja za proučavanje boli (eng. International Association for the Study of Pain-IASP) donijela je nove dijagnostičke kriterije za refl eksnu simpatičku dis-trofi ju (RSD) i kauzalgiju i preimenovala ta stanja u kom-pleksni regionalni bolni sindrom (KRBS), tip I i tip II.

The aim of study was to establish which level of myopic refractive error influences visual field defects in automated static perimetry, if these defects are typical, and if optimal correction normalized the visual field. The study included 100 patients (200 eyes) divided into three groups according to the severity of the myopic refractive error: group A(More)
Since biologics have been introduced for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis a need for reliable imaging modality to assess treatment efficacy have been opened. In the last years through technological advances diagnostic ultrasound has become highly sensitive and specific method for detection of inflammatory and destructive changes in rheumatoid(More)
In the last ten years we are whitnesses of fast development of ultrasound in rheumatology clinical practice and research. The main problem is general perception that US can be highly subjective. Since 2004 an international collaborative group of ultrasound experts known as the OMERACT Ultrasound Task Force has worked to address the metric qualities of(More)
