Frequency of cardiovascular risk factors and co-morbidity in patients with rheumatic diseases

, : Frequency of cardiovascular risk factors and co-morbidity in patients with rheumatic diseases. Presse Medicale 35 Suppl 1: 5-9

Analysis of national data from the health ministry programme of reduction of the cardiovascular risks (2002-2005) shows a high frequency of cardiovascular disease and cardiovascular risk factors in the general population. It is of interest to analyse these data in relation to the practice of rheumatology. In addition, the frequency of cardiovascular pathologies is higher in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and spondylarthropathy. These notions are also very important since these two populations are often treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for a long duration. General knowledge shown in this article concerning the cardiovascular risk factors and co-morbidities in the patients with rheumatic pathologies allows, within the context of a therapeutic decisional strategy in rheumatology, a better estimation of the individual benefit/risk ratio of each prescription and more particularly that of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Increased expression of plasminogen activator inhibitor type-I (PAI-1) in vessel walls seems to accelerate atherosclerosis. Angiotensin II can increase the synthesis of PAI-1. Inhibition of this process may facilitate migration of vascular smooth...
