Review Articles

  • * Destructive gouty arthritis has been shown to be a multifactorial disease demonstrating variability in its manifestations.
  • * Physicians must be prepared to navigate a complicated treatment algorithm ranging from numerous nonoperative therapies to operative intervention.
  • * If a patient is treated properly from the time of diagnosis, a surgical procedure should rarely be necessary.
