Cardiovascular diseases are the important causes of morbidity and mortality in systemic lupus erythematosus SLE. The aim of the study was to determine frequency of HT in SLE patients and to compare the value of office, home and hour ambulatory blood pressure BP measurements for the diagnose and the management of HT in this patient group.
The study was conducted with 90 SLE patients. All subjects had a complete medical history and physical examination. Office, home and hour ambulatory BP measurements were performed in all patients. We observed that the concordance between the office, home and ambulatory BP measurements was low for determining patients with HT. The concordance between the office and ambulatory BP measurements was extremely low Kappa: 0. The concordance between home and ambulatory BP measurements was moderate but less than ideally expected Kappa: 0.
Presence of higher number of cardiovascular risk factors was found to be a cause of discordance between home and ambulatory blood pressure measurements OR 1. The concordance between home and ambulatory BP measurements were increasing by lower body mass index values OR 0. If ambulatory BP measurement is not available, home BP measurements can be used.
