Reversibility of Joint Thickening in Acromegalic Patients: An Ultrasonography Study
Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
Axial and peripheral arthropathy affects the majority of patients with acromegaly, being a leading cause of morbidity and functional disability. Treatment with octreotide (OCT) improves symptoms and signs of acromegalic arthropathy, but objective detection of structural changes in bone and cartilage has not been reported to date. This open prospective study was designed to evaluate the effect of a long term treatment with OCT on acromegalic arthropathy assessed by ultrasonography examination.doi:10.1210/jcem.83.6.4865 pmid:9626149 fatcat:4hgc3scyobfxfjib2illcab3nq
