POS1082 Catastrophizing In Patients With Psoriatic Arthritis


Background: catastrophizing is a negative cognitivo-affective response to an anxiety-provoking stimulus, especially anticipated or actual pain. It can be quickly assessed using a validated questionnaire: the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) 1 . Catastrophizing plays a role in maintaining chronic pain and is associated with several pain-related outcomes in osteoarthritis and low back pain. To our knowledge, there are no data on catastrophizing in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Objectives: To assess the prevalence of catastrophizing and associated factors in PsA. Methods: we performed a bi-centric observational, prospective study. All patients aged 18 or over with PsA fulfilling the 2006 CASPAR criteria were consecutively included. Sociodemographic data, information on the disease and its treatments were collected as well as questionnaires for disease activity (BASDAI), function (HAQ, BASFI), quality of life (SF12, EQ5D), anxiety and depression (HADS, GAD7), fibromyalgia (FiRST), insomnia (ISI) and catastrophizing scores (PCS). Statistical analysis included samples T-test, one-way variance analysis, Spearman’s correlation coefficient, Chi 2 test, Fisher’s exact test, Wilcoxon test, multivariate linear regression (considering catastrophizing as a continuous variable) and multivariate logistics regression (considering catastrophizing as a categorical variable: PCS ≥ 20 = high level catastrophizing). Results: From September 2019 to March 2020, 85 PsA patients were included: 54.1% were women, the median age was 54.0 years and 33 patients (39.8%) were professionally active. The majority of patients (88.2%) had a disease lasting for more than 2 years. Axial involvement was found for 39 patients (45.9%), almost all patients (98.8%) had peripheral involvement, 32 patients (37.7%) had enthesitic involvement and 14 patients (16.7%) had erosions. Median DAS28 CRP was 3.12 [2.13-4.46] and the median BASDAI score was 5.50 [4.30-6.70]. The prevalence of a PCS score ≥20 was 45.9% [35.3;56.5]. The median PCS score was 16 [6-29]. In multivariate logistics regression, high-level catastrophizing was significantly associated with the HADS anxiety score (OR=1.35 [1.15-1.61]) and pain VAS (OR=1.04 [1.02-1.06]). In multivariate linear regression, catastrophizing was significantly associated with the HADS anxiety score (p= 0.004), pain VAS (p=0.001), HADS depression score (p=0.018) and insomnia score (p=0.034). Conclusion: almost half the patients with PsA were high catastrophizers. Catastrophizing is related to anxiety, pain, depression and insomnia. It may be interesting to detect catastrophizing in order to improve the care of our patients.
