Fall incidence and outcomes of falls in a prospective study of adults with rheumatoid arthritis.

Stanmore EK, Oldham J, Skelton DA, O'Neill T, Pilling M, Campbell AJ, Todd C - Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken) (2013)

Bottom Line: Age and sex were not associated with falls.These results indicate that adults with RA are at high risk of falls and fall-related injuries, fractures, and head injuries.Strategies to prevent falls in adults with RA must be prioritized to reduce falls, fall-related injuries, and fractures.

fig03: Histogram of number of falls in 1-year followup.

Mentions: From the initial sample of 559 participants, 535 (95.7%) completed 1 year of followup. A total of 598 falls were reported in 5,467 months of observation, with a crude incidence rate of 1,313 falls per 1,000 person-years at risk or 1.11 falls per person. More than one-third of the participants experienced ≥1 fall(s) (36.4%, 95% CI 32%–41%). Ninety-four people fell once, and 101 people fell twice or more (Figure 3).
