Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and 8-year course of forefoot impairments and walking disability in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A total of 848 patients with recent-onset RA from 1995 through the present were included. The patients were assessed annually. Pain and swelling of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints, erosions and joint space narrowing of the MTP joints and first interphalangeal joints, and the Health Assessment Questionnaire walking subscale were analyzed using descriptive and correlational techniques.
