Abstract

To our knowledge, no prior report focused on the risk factors for proximal humerus fractures in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between potential risk factors and the occurrence of proximal humerus fractures in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. A total of 11,907 patients with rheumatoid arthritis were enrolled in our observational cohort rheumatoid arthritis study between 2000 and 2012. Self-reported proximal humerus fractures were verified using the patients’ medical records. Cox proportional hazard models were used to analyze the independent contribution of risk factors to the occurrence of proximal humerus fractures. During follow-up (mean 5.6 years), 92 proximal humerus fractures were verified in 91 patients. Multivariate Cox regression analyses estimated that the hazard ratios of sustaining a proximal humerus fracture were 1.37 for every 10-year increase in age [95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.10–1.70; P
