Sjögren's Syndrome significantly increases risk of heart attack
Date:6/13/2014

creased monitoring for coronary artery disease in all patients with this condition, in addition to proper management and modification of their cardiovascular risk factors to reduce the risk of a future heart attack," Dr Avia-Zubieta the Principal Investigator of the study concluded.

Looking first at the heart attacks, out of 1,176 new cases with SjS, 28 developed a first time heart attack, with an incident rate of 7.7 per 1,000 person-years. Among 11,879 non-SjS matched controls, 138 had a heart attack, with an incident rate of 3.5 per 1,000 person-years.

The results for the stroke cohorts showed that, among 1,195 with new SjS, 19 developed a first-time stroke, with an incident rate of 5.1 per 1,000 person-years. Out of 11,983 non-SjS matched controls, 137 had a CVA event, with an incident rate of 3.4 per 1,000 person-years.

Compared with the age, sex and entry matched controls, the relative risks for heart attack and stroke events were 2.2 (95% CI 1.41- 3.32) and 1.5 (0.9- 2.4), respectively. Adjusting for other relevant risk factors for cardiovascular disease including medications made no significant difference to the relative risk of patients with SjS developing either heart attacks 2.4 (1.5 3.8) or stroke 1.6 (1.0- 2.8). The risk of developing a heart attack was highest within the first year following diagnosis of SjS (3.6 times), and persisted up to five years following the initial diagnosis. This trend was not seen for strokes.

This was a retrospective matched cohort study with new SjS patients satisfying at least one of the following criteria: diagnosis of SjS (ICD-9-CM code 710.2, ICD-10-CM code M35.0) in adults on at least two visits at least two months apart and within a two-year period between 1996 and 2010 by a non-rheumatologist physician diagnosis of SjS on at least one visit by a rheumatologist or from hospitalisation. cases with diagnostic codes for SjS between 1990 and 1995 were excluded with the intention to sele
