A model to predict cardiovascular events in patients with newly diagnosed wegener's granulomatosis and microscopic polyangiitis.
OBJECTIVES:: To create a prognostic tool to quantify the 5 year cardiovascular (CV) risk in patients with newly diagnosed Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) and microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) without pre-morbid CV disease. METHODS:: We reviewed CV outcomes during the long term follow up of patients in the first 4 European Vasculitis Study Group (EUVAS) trials of WG and MPA.
