The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of cardiac involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and primary antiphospholipid syndrome (PAPS), and to evaluate the correlation between cardiac involvement and antiphospholipid autoimmunization. M-mode, two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography was performed in 101 consecutive patients (46 with SLE, 23 with PSS, 12 with RA, 20 with PAPS) and in 20 healthy subjects… CONTINUE READING
