"Our analysis shows a higher incidence of CVEs among this cohort of HIV-infected adults than was reported by the ARIC study of the general population of North Carolina (1.72 per 1000 person-years). Moreover, as the HIV-infected population ages, CVE rates will likely increase. In the post-HAART era in the Southeastern US, comorbidities are important risk factors for cardiovascular disease."
