It is well known that cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a major contributor of death in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) as well in other rheumatic illness. In the last decades, there has been a growing development of different methodologies with the purpose of early detection of CVD. The aim of this study is to correlate the usefulness of subclinical parameters of vascular aging and QRISK¨ 3-2017 score for early detection of CVD in SLE.
Clinical assessment including systemic lupus erythematosus disease activity index (SLEDAI) and systemic lupus international collaborating clinics / american college of rheumatology damage index (SLICC/ACR DI), laboratory measurements, carotid ultrasound examination, carotid intima media thickness (cIMT) measurement, carotid distention and diameter analysis, arterial stiffness measurement measured by tonometry and QRISK¨ 3-2017 were done. All results were analyzed by SPSS 24 software.
We observed correlation between QRISK3 and mean cIMT (rs = 0.651, P < 0.001), PWV (rs = 0.627, P < 0.001), cfPWV (rs = 0.651, P < 0.001) and distensibility (rs = 0.555, P = 0.001). Consistent with above, SLE patients in middle and high risk QRISK¨ 3-2017 showed increased arterial stiffness versus low risk group.
We encourage to the rheumatology community to assess cardiovascular risk in SLE patients with QRISK¨ 3-2017 risk calculator as an alternative method at the outpatient clinic along a complete cardiovascular evaluation when appropriate.
