Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who had high levels of inflammation at baseline were at increased risk for later heart failure, a large cohort study found.

After adjustment for demographics, traditional risk factors for heart failure, and RA disease factors, the hazard ratio for heart failure at 10 years was 1.46 (95% CI 1.13-1.90) among patients with elevated levels of inflammatory markers

However, as shown in their study online in Arthritis Care & Research, the risk with elevated inflammation in early RA was observed only for the subset of heart failure patients who had preserved ejection fraction
