- Objectives To estimate the prevalence and associated factors of rotator cuff tear (RCT) in patients with hand osteoarthritis (HOA). Methods Between June 2013 and December 2015, we recruited 1150 participants in rural area of South Korea. Of the 1150 participants, 307 participants with HOA were analyzed. Plain radiography of both hands, magnetic resonance imaging of both shoulders, and serum levels of high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) were obtained for all patients. HOA and RCT were diagnosed by clinical and radiologic findings. Results The prevalence of RCT in patients with HOA (192/307, 62.5%) was higher than that in those without HOA (410/827, 49.5%, p<0.001). Among the 307 patients with HOA, the patients with RCT were older, and had higher hsCRP and lower HDL levels than the patients without RCT. Multiple logistic regression analysis confirmed significant associations of age (odds ratio [OR], 1.06; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.02-1.11), serum hsCRP levels.0.6mg/L (OR, 1.68; CI, 1.00-2.80), and low HDL levels (male, < 50 mg/dL; female, < 40 mg/dL) (OR, 1.93; CI, 1.05-3.56) with RCT in patients with HOA. For patients below 60 years old, the prevalence of RCT was 2.8-fold higher in the low HDL group than normal HDL group (p = 0.048). Finally, the prevalence of RCT was 2.6-fold higher in patients with HOA with both elevated hsCRP and low HDL levels compared with those with neither (p<0.05). Conclusions Our findings suggest inflammation and metabolic factors were associated with the prevalence of RCT in HOA patients.
