  1. Prevalence and risk factors of carotid plaque in women with systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine the prevalence of carotid atherosclerosis and associated risk factors in women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

    Methods

    Carotid plaque and intima-media wall thickness (IMT) were measured by B-mode ultrasound in women with SLE.

    Risk factors associated with carotid plaque and IMT were determined at the time of the ultrasound scan and included traditional cardiovascular risk factors, SLE-specific variables, and inflammation markers.

    Results

    The 175 women with SLE were predominantly white (87%), with a mean age of 44.9 years (SD 11.5).

    Twenty-six women (15%) had a previous arterial event (10 coronary [myocardial infarction or angina], 11 cerebrovascular [stroke or transient ischemic attack], and 5 both).

    The mean ± SD IMT was 0.71 ± 0.14 mm, and 70 women (40%) had focal plaque.

    Variables significantly associated with focal plaque (P<0.05) included age, duration of lupus, systolic, diastolic, and pulse pressure, body mass index, menopausal status, levels of total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, fibrinogen and C-reactive protein levels, SLE-related disease damage according to the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) damage index (modified to exclude cardiovascular parameters), and disease activity as determined by the Systemic Lupus Activity Measure.
