Table 4 Multivariate analysis of risk factors for carotid plaques in SLE patients

From: High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T is a biomarker for atherosclerosis in systemic lupus erythematous patients: a cross-sectional controlled study

  OR 95% CI p value
10-Year cardiovascular riska 1.30 0.99–2.07 0.168
BMI 1.35 1.13–1.74 0.006
Years of steroid treatment 1.09 0.99–1.24 0.110
Detectable HS-cTnTb 9.26 1.55–90.07 0.033
eGFR 1.01 0.99–1.03 0.513
  1. Analysis was performed on 63 subjects
  2. a10-year cardiovascular risk was calculated using the Framingham equation
  3. bDetectable HS-cTnT referred to a high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (HS-cTnT) serum level >3 ng/L
  4. BMI body mass index, CI confidence interval, eGRF estimated glomerular rate filtration, OR odds ratio, SLE systemic lupus erythematosus
