Abstract

Objective:Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is more prevalent in almost all patients with chronic inflammatory musculoskeletal diseases than in their healthy counterparts. The aim of this study was to assess the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in comparison with patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and healthy controls.
