Atrial fibrillation as an independent risk factor for stroke: the Framingham Study.
The data suggest that the elderly are particularly vulnerable to stroke when atrial fibrillation is present, and the effects of hypertension, coronary heart disease, and cardiac failure on the risk of stroke became progressively weaker with increasing age. Expand
Epidemiologic features of chronic atrial fibrillation: the Framingham study.
- W. Kannel, R. Abbott, D. Savage, P. McNamara
- The New England journal of medicine
- 29 April 1982
The development of chronic atrial fibrillation was associated with a doubling of overall mortality and of mortality from cardiovascular disease and among the risk factors for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and electrocardiographic evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy were related to the occurrence of atrialfibrillation.

Incidence of coronary heart disease and lipoprotein cholesterol levels. The Framingham Study.
- W. Castelli, R. Garrison, P. Wilson, R. Abbott, S. Kalousdian, W. Kannel
- 28 November 1986
It is concluded that even after these adjustments, nonfasting HDL-C and total cholesterol levels are related to development of CHD in both men and women aged 49 years and older. Expand
Atrial fibrillation: a major contributor to stroke in the elderly. The Framingham Study.
In contrast to the impact of cardiac failure, coronary heart disease, and hypertension, which declined with age, atrial fibrillation was a significant contributor to stroke at all ages. Expand
Frequency of bowel movements and the future risk of Parkinson’s disease
Infrequent bowel movements are associated with an elevated risk of future PD, and further study is needed to determine whether constipation is part of early PD processes or is a marker of susceptibility or environmental factors that may cause PD. Expand
Maintaining mobility in late life. I. Demographic characteristics and chronic conditions.
There was a stepwise increase in the risk of mobility loss according to the number of chronic conditions present at baseline that was very consistent between men and women and after adjustment for age, income, and chronic conditions. Expand
Association of olfactory dysfunction with risk for future Parkinson's disease
Examination of the association of olfactory dysfunction with future development of PD in Honolulu‐Asia Aging Study cohort members finds that it can predate the onset of clinical PD in a community‐based population. Expand
The epidemiology of varicose veins: the Framingham Study.
- F. Brand, A. Dannenberg, R. Abbott, W. Kannel
- American journal of preventive medicine
- 1 March 1988
Results suggest that increased physical activity and weight control may help prevent varicose veins among adults at high risk, and reduce the overall risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease as well. Expand
Association of coffee and caffeine intake with the risk of Parkinson disease.
The findings indicate that higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of PD, and this effect appears to be independent of smoking. Expand
Characteristics and prognosis of lone atrial fibrillation. 30-year follow-up in the Framingham Study.
It is suggested that subjects with lone AF, despite similar cardiovascular risk profiles to normal controls, have a distinct preponderance of preexisting electrocardiographic abnormalities. Expand
