Gout not linked with increased cardiovascular events in people with PAD

Posted on

Gout was not independently associated with increased cardiovascular events in people with peripheral artery disease (PAD), according to a study in Atherosclerosis.

In this prospective study, 4308 people with PAD, including carotid artery disease, aortic or peripheral aneurysm, and lower limb PAD, were included and followed for a median of 2.1 years. Of the participants, 334 had a history of gout.

Participants who had gout were at increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke or cardiovascular death and all-cause mortality but the associations were lost after Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and Cox-proportional hazard analysis. In the propensity-score matched cohort, gout was not significantly associated with an increased risk for MACE or all-cause mortality.
