Abstract

2015 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting

Background/Purpose:
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is associated with an increased risk of
cardiovascular disease (CVD). The aim of this study is to determine the
incidence and predictors of CVD in Early Inflammatory Arthritis (EIA) from the
Canadian early arthritis cohort (CATCH).

Conclusion:
The rate of CVD events in patients
with EIA was higher later in the disease course. CVD appears to be
under-treated and is independently associated with traditional CVD risk factors
and the use of NSAIDs.
