Clinical profile of Filipino patients with osteoarthritis seen at two arthritis clinics
International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases, 07/17/2012
Racaza GZ et al. – The authors described a large cohort of Filipino osteoarthritis (OA) patients. Clinical characteristics show more women than men, with knees as the most common and hips as the least involved joints. Medical management was based on a local practice guideline. Compared to the literature, this cohort had more overweight than obese subjects and low surgical referral. A coordinated registry with orthopedics and physiatry departments is currently underway.
