Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune rheumatic disease of unknown etiology characterized by chronic erosive arthritis and systemic damage to internal organs. Currently, the question is being discussed that the leading cause of a decrease in life expectancy in RA is cardiovascular complications associated with atherosclerosis. Clinicians are aware that frequent manifestations of vascular accidents in patients with RA are associated with lipid metabolism disorders, but the mechanisms of development of these disorders have not been fully disclosed. In solving this problem, an important role is played by the complexity of approaches to diagnosis and treatment based on basic therapy in patients with RA. The use of satin against the background of basic therapy in patients with RA significantly accelerates the recovery time, and also contributes to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
