Background. The survival rate of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has improved over the last decades; still the most common cause of death is cardiovascular disease (CVD). Therefore, the appropriate management by CV risk stratification, using clinical tools, is of major importance. Objective of the study. To evaluate and compare the CV risk factors in patients with SLE. Material and Methods. Cross-sectional study of traditional and non-traditional CV risk factors in SLE patients (SLICC,2012). The CV risk stratification was based on SCORE versus SLE CV risk equation. Results. A total of 96 SLE patients were analyzed. The female: male ratio was 14:1 and the mean age was 43,2±12,1 years. The disease duration was 89,7±45,5 months and the activity by SLEDAI was 8.08±7.1 points. The 10-year risk provided by SCORE was 7.8±9.0. Overall, 12.5% participants had high risk, 45.8% had moderate 41.7% low CV risk. The most common traditional CV risk factors were arterial hypertension (50%), age (16,6%) and hypercholesterolemia (12.5%). Non-traditional risk factors were high disease activity (33,3%), secondary APL syndrome (33,3%) and renal lupus (20.8%). Using SLE CV Risk Equation, we established that 29.1% of patients had high risk, compared to only 12,5% by SCORE. Conclusion: Patients with SLE have a high CV risk, as in addition to traditional CV risk factors, they have non-traditional risk factors such as high disease activity, lupus nephritis and APL syndrome. Therefore, specific tool for CV risk stratification will give a more accurate estimation.
