INTRODUCTION Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was independently associated with cardiovascular events in several studies, most of which were conducted in the US. OBJECTIVES To estimate the risk of cardiovascular events in a cohort of RA patients recruited at a hospital in France, to identify cardiovascular risk factors, and to measure the severity of cardiovascular events. METHODS Two hundred and thirty-nine patients admitted between January 1, 1998, and March 31, 1999, for RA meeting American… CONTINUE READING

Two hundred and thirty - nine patients admitted between January 1 , 1998 , and March 31 , 1999 , for RA meeting American College of Rheumatology criteria , with a negative history for cardiovascular events , were sent a questionnaire in 2004 to evaluate the occurrence of myocardial infarction , stroke , or cardiovascular death .
During the mean follow - up of 5.4+/-1.8 years , there were 10 cases of myocardial infarction ( 0.8%/year ) , 3 cases of stroke ( 0.2%/year ) , and 9 cardiovascular deaths ( 0.7%/year ) .
Of the 10 patients who experienced myocardial infarction , 5 had clinical symptoms of heart failure and 4 died from cardiovascular causes .

Our data suggest a higher risk of cardiovascular events in patients with RA compared to the general population in France ( 0.1 - 0.5%/year for myocardial infarction and 0.07%/year for stroke in the age group covered by our cohort ) .
