    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.

    The toxicity profile of hydroxychloroquine contributes little risk in stopping or continuing use during surgery since individuals are able to recover quickly with this medication after outpatient operations 20,21. It appears to be safe treatment for RA in the presence of elective surgery with renal function monitoring 17. It is ok and recommended to stop plavix for a week for the surgery and continue with other medications to decrease the risk of bleeding during surgery. Stopping the plavix for a few days does not increase the risk of a cardiac event. Hope this information is helpful. That said, there's no reason for patients to stop using Plaquenil just because they will have cataract surgery, Dr. Osborn said. He sometimes sees SS patients who have read about Plaquenil's side effects and ask if they have to stop the drug prior to cataract surgery. However, he knows of no specific contraindications with cataract surgery.
