BACKGROUND Left ventricular wall motion (WM) abnormalities have recognized prognostic significance in patients with coronary or other heart diseases; however, whether abnormal WM predicts adverse events in adults without overt cardiovascular disease has not been assessed. Our objective was to determine whether echocardiographic WM abnormalities predict subsequent cardiovascular events in a population-based sample. METHODS AND RESULTS Participants (n=2864, mean age 60+/-8 years, 64% women… CONTINUE READING
