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.
High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
A consistent inverse relation of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and coronary heart disease event rates was apparent in BRHS as well as in the four American studies.
Obesity as an Independent Risk Factor for Cardiovascular Disease: A 26‐year Follow‐up of Participants in the Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
Intervention in obesity, in addition to the well established risk factors, appears to be an advisable goal in the primary prevention of CVD.
The natural history of congestive heart failure: the Framingham study.
TLDR
The natural history of congestive heart failure was studied over a 16-year period in 5192 persons initially free of the disease, finding that in almost every five-year age group, from 30 to 62 years, the incidence rate was greater for men than for women.
High-density lipoprotein cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Four prospective American studies.
TLDR
A consistent inverse relation of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and coronary heart disease event rates was apparent in BRHS as well as in the four American studies.
Incidence of coronary heart disease and lipoprotein cholesterol levels. The Framingham Study.
TLDR
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.
An investigation of coronary heart disease in families. The Framingham offspring study.
TLDR
There is little evidence that coronary heart disease (CHD) experience and CHD risk factors differ in parents of those who volunteered for this study and the parents ofThose who did not volunteer.
