The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to estimate the relationship between cumulative adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and myocardial infarction (MI) in adulthood and to examine the role of potential confounding factors that may have contributed to the association. Studies examining the association of cumulative ACEs with MI among adults were identified by searching PubMed/MEDLINE, PsycINFO, ScienceDirect, and ProQuest Dissertations and Thesis. Individual estimates of odds… 



Insights Into Causal Pathways for Ischemic Heart Disease: Adverse Childhood Experiences Study

A dose-response relation of ACEs to IHD and a relation between almost all individual ACEs and IHD is found and psychological factors appear to be more important than traditional risk factors in mediating the relation ofACEs to the risk of IHD.

Measuring mortality and the burden of adult disease associated with adverse childhood experiences in England: a national survey

Radically different life-course trajectories are associated with exposure to increased ACEs, and interventions to prevent ACEs are available but rarely implemented at scale.

Depression as an aetiologic and prognostic factor in coronary heart disease: a meta-analysis of 6362 events among 146 538 participants in 54 observational studies.

Depression has yet to be established as an independent risk factor for CHD because of incomplete and biased availability of adjustment for conventional risk factors and severity of coronary disease.

Sex differences in risk factors for myocardial infarction: cohort study of UK Biobank participants

Although the incidence of MI was higher in men than in women, several risk factors were more strongly associated with MI in women compared with men, and the incidence in women will likely become more similar to that in men as the population ages and the prevalence of lifestyle associated risk factors increase.

Adverse Childhood Experiences, Health‐Related Quality of Life, and Chronic Disease Risks in Rural Areas of the United States

Rural respondents who experienced ≥1 ACEs had increased odds of reporting fair/poor general health, activity limitations, and heart disease, which is consistent with previous studies.

Adverse Childhood Experience and Adolescent Well-being: Do Protective Factors Matter?

Studies have found traumatic experiences in childhood to have lasting effects across the lifecourse. These adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) include a variety of types of trauma, including
