I am not a doctor nor a specialist, and only speak from my own personal research conducted on myself.. I believe that you can liquefy uric tophi with malic acid, but then that liquefied substance must be carried out of the body. There in lies the problem witch needs further research. I was also diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with the same condition in one of my finger joints. I opted to have no surgery done, and since then, (with daily malic acid supplementation), I have had NO gout flare ups at all.. Just the Facts. Hope this helps…
