Osteoarthritis: Which Treatments Work and Which Don't?
Date:2/19/2008

tal in Paris.

Nearly all of the previous guidelines were created before the recent discussion about the potential cardiovascular risks of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) took place. In recent years, there has been a decline in the use of NSAIDs to reduce pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis, primarily due to their potential for causing gastrointestinal side effects and the perceived cardiovascular risks associated with these drugs.

However, members of the OARSI committee found that NSAIDs are often effective pain relievers and their short-term use should be considered on a case-by-case basis and not as a long-term option.

"As a consequence of the confusion over NSAIDs, some people may not be getting the care they need for pain," says Abramson.

The OARSI recommendations make up the first truly international guidelines for the treatment of knee and hip osteoarthritis. The guideline committee was made up of experts from six countries, including 11 rheumatologists, two primary care physicians, one orthopedic surgeon, and two experts on evidence-based medicine.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and the major cause of chronic musculoskeletal pain and mobility limitation in elderly populations worldwide.

The Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and encouraging fundamental and applied research, and to disseminate the results of that research in order to permit better knowledge of osteoarthritis and its treatment.
