    Stopping plaquenil for surgery


    In order to minimize the risks of infection and other potential complications with podiatric surgery in this patient population, this author reviews the literature and offers insights on whether medications for RA should be withdrawn, continued or modified during the perioperative period. Increasingly, the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis includes the utilization of immunosuppressive therapeutic agents.

    You have been scheduled for an epidural steroid injection which is useful to treat pain and determine if your pain is coming from the spinal nerves. You will be receiving an injection of local anesthetic, corticosteroids, and a small amount of contrast dye. Taking Plaquenil long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. Stop taking Plaquenil and call your doctor at once if you have trouble focusing, if you see light streaks or flashes in your vision, or if you notice any swelling or color changes in your eyes.

It is VERY IMPORTANT for you to know what medications you are taking and to understand what to do about your medications as your surgery date approaches.

    Louie and Ward demonstrated that in the state of California, rates of joint surgery for the treatment of RA declined in the 1990s and have continually diminished since that time.1 The authors concluded that the favorable long-term outcomes for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with newer agents have resulted in a decreased need for bone and joint surgery in patients afflicted with this disease. The effectiveness of disease modifying agents in reversing the progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is illustrated by the reduced frequency with which patients with RA undergo surgery for bone and joint deformities.

    Plaquenil does not need to be stopped for surgery so it can be restarted after the procedure. Although in studies Celebrex does not cause increased bleeding, unilke other older NSAIDs, some surgeons still advise to stop it to be safe. In general, Celebrex can be restarted the day after the procedure once the risk of bleeding is over. Recently there have been a few cases in which patients of mine have been referred for orthopaedic procedures in the context of active Rheumatoid arthritis RA. The orthopaedic surgeon has expressed a real concern about the use of Methotrexate MTX in the peri-operative period, resulting in the patient being very anxious to stop the medication. If your ophthalmologist finds any signs of retinal damage, he or she will tell your primary care doctor or inflammatory disease specialist to stop Plaquenil treatment immediately. This will help you avoid permanent vision loss. Your other doctor will find another treatment for your disease.

Unfortunately, cessation of Plaquenil intake may not be a remedy since not infrequently.
