Control of crystal-induced arthropathies.

Author information

Department of Medicine, Western Pennsylvania Hospital, Pittsburgh.


Present approaches to the treatment to crystal-induced arthropathies and indications for their use are reviewed. Successes and limitations of such therapy are discussed and potential new approaches to treatment are discussed. Treatment of gout hyperuricemia is generally effective if appropriately applied and is likely to be improved principally by better application of presently available drugs. New approaches to treatment may improve care for those patients in whom present approaches to management remain unsatisfactory.
