Facteurs de risque cardiovasculaires chez les patients vivant avec le VIH, état des lieux et perspectives de prise en charge en médecine générale

Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular diseases are nowadays the fourth cause of death among people living with HIV. Despite recent guidelines, the follow up by general practioners seems not satisfying. Methods: it was a prospective, multicenter and quantitative study, based on the evaluation of cardiovascular risk and follow up of patients coming to a specialist’s consultation, and their acceptability to a follow up by a GP. We asked also 50 general practioners about their cardiovascular follow up with PVVIH, and about their difficulties or expected improvement. Results: our study showed that people living with HIV have an increased cardiovascular risk. They are not enough treated or followed, and seem to agree to a follow up by their general practitioner. The general practitioners need to be more involved by the specialists, and ask for more formation. Conclusion: The new antiretroviral treatments, tools for their medical interactions, and the recent guidelines are a part of perspectives for taking care of cardiovascular risk with people living with HIV. Better communication between specialist and GP, could also improve this follow up, and our patients seem to approve this evolution.
