No association of atherosclerosis with digital ulcers (DU) in Japanese patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc): evaluation of carotid (IMT) and plaque characteristics.

 

There were no differences in serum lipid level, carotid IMT or plaque score between SSc patients with and without DU, suggesting that atherosclerotic changes are not primarily involved in the development of DU. PubMed, J Dermatology, 2014 Jul;41(7):604-8. (Also see: Athersclerosis and Digital Ulcers)
