CV risk management should be mandatory in RA and other types of inflammatory rheumatic disease
Date:6/13/2008

Paris, France, Friday 13 June 2008: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients should undergo compulsory cardiovascular (CV) risk management and existing CV risk calculators should be adapted to the increased CV risk in inflammatory rheumatic disease patients, the EULAR Task Force on 'Cardiovascular Risk Management in RA' recommended today at EULAR 2008, the Annual Congress of the European League Against Rheumatism in Paris, France.

RA, AS and PsA are associated with an increased CV risk and, in RA, this risk is at least double the norm and potentially similar to that of type 2 diabetes, a clinically-established cardiovascular risk factor. The EULAR Task Force set out to review existing evidence and expert opinion-based recommendations on CV management in inflammatory rheumatic disease, in order to devise specific EULAR recommendations for future clinical practice.

The EULAR Task Force's multidisciplinary steering committee comprised 21 members, including rheumatologists, cardiologists, internists and epidemiologists, from across nine European countries (France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Norway, Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands, United Kingdom). Their recommendations were as follows:

  1. RA, AS and PsA should become clinically accepted as new CV risk factors.

  2. Existing CV-risk calculators, such as the Framingham and Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation (SCORE), should be adapted, by a multiplier, to reflect the increased CV risk in inflammatory rheumatic disease patients.

  3. Annual cardiovascular risk screening is recommended for all RA patients and should be considered for AS and PsA patients.

  4. Lifestyle recommendations (on areas including diet, exercise, smoking cessation and stress management) should be given to all inflammatory rheumatic disease patients.

  5. Treatment with statins and/or antihypertensives should be considered, and
