Objective. In previous studies, atherosclerotic vascular events (AVEs) were shown to occur in similar to 10% of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We undertook this study to investigate the annual occurrence and potential risk factors for AVEs in a multinational, multiethnic inception cohort of patients with SLE.
