Abstract
Introduction: Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) patients suffer from various cardiovascular manifestations with the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL). APS may manifest itself as a primary disease (PAPS) or as a secondary disease, most commonly in the context of Systemic Lupus Erythemathosus (SLE). Patients and methods: We analyzed 488 patients: 346 PAPS and 142 patients with secondary APS (398 female and 90 male, 45.03?13.61 years). aPL analysis included analysis of aCL (IgG/IgM), ?2GPI and LA. In all patients echocardiography study was performed in order to reveal presence of pseudoinfective endocarditis or valve thickening or dysfunction not related to age. Results: In our study group, there was 38.7% pts with aCL IgG antibodies, 53.1% with aCL IgM, 34.1% with ?2GPI IgG, 41.8% ?2GPI IgM and 53.2% with LA. There was no statisticaly significant difference between overall cardiac manifestations and the type of aPL. Highly statistically significant difference was revealed considering presence of aCL-IgG and aCL-IgM antibodies and pseudoinfective endocarditis (p=0.004, p=0.003 respectively) and presence of aCL-IgG and valvular dysfunction (p=0.023). Valvular manifestations in our cohort were significantly related to titers of aCL antibodies. The level of aCL IgG (p=0.005, Pearson +0.138) were in positive correlation with presence of pseudoinfective endocarditis. Conclusion: Our study showed that presence of anticardiolipin antibodies in APS patients brings higher probability of valvular changes development. Higher titers of aCL IgG bring greater probability of pseudoinfective endocarditis development in our APS cohort.
