Coronary(CAC) and Abdominal Aorta Calcification (AAC) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): Relationships with Traditional Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Disease Characteristics, and Concomitant Treatments.

 

In patients with RA, CAC and AAC are more prevalent and more severe compared with age–matched and sex–matched control participants. Current use of methotrexate is a major determinant of the absence of CAC, and erosive arthritis is a major determinant of AAC. PubMed, J Rheumatol, 2014 Oct 1. (Also see: Cardiac Involvement)
