Prediction of coronary heart disease using risk factor categories.
TLDR
A simple coronary disease prediction algorithm was developed using categorical variables, which allows physicians to predict multivariate CHD risk in patients without overt CHD. Expand
Impact of atrial fibrillation on the risk of death: the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
There was a significant AF-sex interaction: AF diminished the female advantage in survival and AF remained significantly associated with excess mortality, with about a doubling of mortality in both sexes in subjects free of valvular heart disease and preexisting cardiovascular disease. Expand
Obesity and the risk of heart failure.
TLDR
In this large, community-based sample, increased body-mass index was associated with an increased risk of heart failure and strategies to promote optimal body weight may reduce the population burden ofheart failure. Expand
Prevalence, incidence, prognosis, and predisposing conditions for atrial fibrillation: population-based estimates.
TLDR
High blood pressure, diabetes, and hypertension were significant independent predictors of AF, adjusting for age and other predisposing conditions, and echocardiographic features offer prognostic information for AF beyond the traditional clinical risk factors. Expand
Arterial and cardiac aging: major shareholders in cardiovascular disease enterprises: Part I: aging arteries: a "set up" for vascular disease.
TLDR
A substantial percentage of older, community-dwelling, otherwise healthy volunteers have evidence of inducible ischemia during combined thallium/ECG treadmill stress testing, and their prognosis is poor compared with their counterparts without subclinical coronary disease. Expand
Prognostic implications of echocardiographically determined left ventricular mass in the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
The estimation of left ventricular mass by echocardiography offers prognostic information beyond that provided by the evaluation of traditional cardiovascular risk factors, and it is concluded that an increase in left Ventricular mass predicts a higher incidence of clinical events, including death, attributable to cardiovascular disease. Expand
Independent risk factors for atrial fibrillation in a population-based cohort. The Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
In addition to intrinsic cardiac causes such as valve disease and congestive heart failure, risk factors for cardiovascular disease also predispose to atrial fibrillation. Expand
Genome-wide association study of blood pressure and hypertension
TLDR
A genome-wide association study of systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure and hypertension in the CHARGE Consortium identifies 13 SNPs for SBP, 20 for DBP and 10 for hypertension at P < 4 × 10−7. Expand
The epidemiology of heart failure: the Framingham Study.
TLDR
Data from the Framingham Heart Study indicate that the incidence of congestive heart failure increases with age and is higher in men than in women, and diabetes mellitus and electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy are also associated with an increased risk of heart failure. Expand
Long-term trends in the incidence of and survival with heart failure.
TLDR
Over the past 50 years, the incidence ofheart failure has declined among women but not among men, whereas survival after the onset of heart failure has improved in both sexes. Expand
