ABSTRACT

Objectives:

To observe the clinical and coronary artery computed tomography(CT) characteristics of patients with ankylosing spondylitis.

Methods:

Data from 33 consecutive patients with ankylosing spondylitis admitted due to chest discomfort in Fuwai Hospital from January 2014 to June 2017 were analyzed, 33 age and sex matched patients with no ankylosing spondylitis were selected as the control group. Coronary artery CT features was compared between the two groups.

Results:

Incidence of hypertension, smoking, diabetes and hyperlipidemia, BMI values were similar between the two groups. Blood lipid level (high density lipoprotein cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglyceride and, total cholesterol), creatinine and uric acid values were also similar between the two groups. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) ([14.15±12.81]m/s vs [7.79±6.26]m/s, P=0.013) and high C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) ([6.88±5.65]ng/L vs [3.16±3.13]ng/L, P=0.002) values were significantly higher in ankylosing spondylitis group than in the control group. Percent of coronary artery stenosis (>50%) was significantly higher in ankylosing spondylitis group than in the control group (23[69.7%] vs 14[42.4%], P=0.026). Coronary artery calcification was significantly higher in ankylosing spondylitis group than in the control group (22 [66.7%] vs 9[27.3%], P=0.001).

Conclusions:

Degree of coronary artery stenosis and calcification as well as inflammatory index (ESR and hs-CRP) are significantly higher in ankylosing spondylitis patients compared to control patients.
