A simple coronary disease prediction algorithm was developed using categorical variables, which allows physicians to predict multivariate CHD risk in patients without overt CHD.

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.
Obesity and the risk of heart failure.
Arterial and cardiac aging: major shareholders in cardiovascular disease enterprises: Part I: aging arteries: a "set up" for vascular disease.
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.
Prevalence, incidence, prognosis, and predisposing conditions for atrial fibrillation: population-based estimates.
Independent risk factors for atrial fibrillation in a population-based cohort. The Framingham Heart Study.
In addition to intrinsic cardiac causes such as valve disease and congestive heart failure, risk factors for cardiovascular disease also predispose to atrial fibrillation.
Genome-wide association study of blood pressure and hypertension
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.

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.
The epidemiology of heart failure: the Framingham Study.
Long-term trends in the incidence of and survival with heart failure.
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.
