¶ Indications of surgical treatment for lesions in the central nervous system depend on the risk of a definitive neurological deficit, related to the benefit of resection. Detection of eloquent areas is then necessary because of major individual variability. Neuro-imaging functional techniques are in development and are beginning to be efficient for(More)
OBJECTIVE Mortality rates in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been reported to be higher than for the general population. Fortunately, efficient therapies have reduced disease activity and may be able to diminish the excess mortality risk. This study was designed to investigate RA mortality over the last 50 years by systematic review of the(More)
To evaluate the safety and clinical effectiveness of percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) in patients aged 80 and over. One hundred and seventy-three patients (127 women, 46 men; mean age = 84.2y) underwent 201 PVP procedures (391 vertebrae) in our institution from June 2008 to March 2012. One hundred and twenty-six patients (73 %) had osteoporotic vertebral(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate if patients with early RA with persistent moderate disease activity during the first year after diagnosis have a worse 3-5 year outcome than those who achieve sustained clinical remission within the first year, in a daily life setting. METHODS The ESPOIR cohort included patients with early arthritis of <6 months' duration.(More)
BACKGROUND Axial Spondyloarthritis (AxSpA) and chronic low back pain are rheumatic diseases that impact patients' health-related quality of life (HRQoL). In other chronic conditions, HRQoL was positively associated with dispositional optimism, a personality trait. The objective was to explore the relationship between optimism and HRQoL in these two(More)
Physical activity is recommended in axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) but may be insufficiently performed. The objective of this study was to assess physical activity in axial spondyloarthritis and to explore its explanatory factors. This was a cross-sectional study of patients with definite axSpA. The level of physical activity (International Physical(More)
BACKGROUND Bronchiectasis is frequently associated (up to 30%) with chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases and leads to lower respiratory tract infections. Data are lacking on the risk of lower respiratory tract infections in patients treated with biologic agents. METHODS Monocenter, retrospective systematic study of all patients with a chronic(More)
Many patients with RA, AS and PsA experience restrictions in participating in the labour force. This reduces quality of life but also affects social insertion and economic autonomy of a patient. During the past decade, treatment strategies have been intensified and, additionally, a number of biologic therapies have been introduced for the treatment of these(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify from a patient's perspective, difficulties and differences in the comprehension of five global presenteeism measures in patients with inflammatory arthritis and OA across seven countries. METHODS Seventy patients with a diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis or OA in paid employment were recruited from seven countries across Europe and(More)
OBJECTIVES The diagnostic delay of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) is usually reported to be more than seven years but may have decreased recently. The objective was to quantify the diagnostic delay in patients with axSpA in France and to explore its associated factors. METHODS Two cross-sectional observational studies included consecutively patients with(More)
