Independent at heart: persistent association of altitude with ischaemic heart disease mortality after consideration of climate, topography and built environment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Living at higher altitude was dose-dependently associated with lower risk of ischaemic heart disease (IHD). Higher altitudes have different climatic, topographic and built environment properties than lowland regions. It is unclear whether these environmental factors mediate/confound the association between altitude and IHD. We examined how much… (More)
