What type of disorder is Gouty Arthritis
Purine metabolism disorder.
What disorder is hyperuricemia associated with? Define hyperuricemia. If you have hyperuricemia, does it mean will you get the disorder?
- - Gouty Arthritis
- - elevated serum uric acid levels
- - No.
What is the incidence of Gouty Arthritis? What body part is mainly involved?
male to female 20:1. over 40 y.o. 1st MTPJ
What is the etiology of Gouty Arthiritis?
- -family history in 50% of patients
- - infection, ETOH use, rich (high protein and purine) foods, injury, exposure to cold
What is the pathophysiology of gouty arthritis?
sodium monorate crytals accumulate in the synovial membrane. Leukocytes atttack the crystals, but release an enzyme that produces severe inflammation in the joint.
What are the signs and symptoms of gouty arthritis?
intense pain w/ increase AROM, marked tenderness, redness, and swelling. Possibly fever and cellulites (inflammation of overlying skin).
tophi: after attacks, not all crystals get reabsorbed, the residual crystal tend to form subcutaneous clusters aka tophi. Tophi can exist in the synovial membrane, cartilage, subchondral bone, synovial sheaths of tendons. Tophi develop in about 1/2 of people with gout.
What are the interventions of gouty arthritis?
avoid purine rich foods (organ meats, scrapple), anti-inflammatory drugs, and possible long term medications to control uric acid production in the body (people who over produce it)
It's either you make too much or your body can't get rid of it efficiently.

Definition of an inflammatory disorder.
any disease or condition that involves inflammation
What are the signs of inflammation?
- - heat (warmth)
- - erythemia (redness)
- - swelling
- - pain (due to increase pressure of tissue from swelling)
- - loss of function
What are the causes of inflammation?
- - metabolic disorder
- - infection
- - disease process
- - trauma (macrotrauma / microtrauma)
Incidence of acute hematogenous osteomyelitis
- -usually children
- -more male
Etiology of acute hematogenous osteomyelitis
bacterial infection from abrasions, pimples, upper respiratory infections, local trauma to bone play a role in location
pathophysiology of acute hematogenous osteomyelitis. what does it mainly affect?
if untreated, pressure # in bones; development of subperiostial abscess; necrosis
puss increases pressure --> pain
spreads --> septic --> bloodborn infection
