Our study also included levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein, presence of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and use of alcohol and tobacco as risk factors for ACVM.
In addition, GA patients with ACVM had a higher mean age (76.
RA patients with ACVM had significantly more frequent hypertension (58.
To the best of our knowledge, our research is the first study demonstrating MPV as a poor prognostic factor for ACVM in patients with GA based on results from both univariate and multivariate analyses.
In this study, we determined that female sex was a poor prognostic factor for ACVM in patients with GA in univariate analysis.
13) Our study found that male sex was a poor prognostic factor for ACVM in patients with RA.
Also, the presence of obesity which is a risk factor for ACVM was not taken into consideration in our study.
