Background: Earlier age at menopause has been associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), but the shape of association and role of established cardiovascular risk factors remain unclear. Therefore, we examined the associations between menopausal characteristics and CHD risk; the shape of the association between age at menopause and CHD risk; and the extent to which these associations are explained by established cardiovascular risk factors. Methods: We used data from EPIC-CVD...

Objectives Compare the predictive performance of Framingham Risk Score (FRS), Pooled Cohort Equations (PCEs) and Systematic COronary Risk Evaluation (SCORE) model between women with and without a history of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (hHDP) and determine the effects of recalibration and refitting on predictive performance. Methods We included 29 751 women, 6302 with hHDP and 17 369 without. We assessed whether models accurately predicted observed 10-year cardiovascular disease (CVD) ris...

Aim To provide a comprehensive overview of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk prediction models for women and models that include female-specific predictors. Methods We performed a systematic review of CVD risk prediction models for women in the general population by updating a previous review. We searched Medline and Embase up to July 2017 and included studies in which; (a) a new model was developed, (b) an existing model was validated, or (c) a predictor was added to an existing model. Results ...

Preeclampsia is associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD), although evidence on premature CAD development after preeclampsia is limited.1 A cross-sectional study among 491 postmenopausal women with a mean age of 67 years showed an increased prevalence of coronary artery calcification (CAC) in participants with self-reported high blood pressure during any previous pregnancy in comparison with women without such a history.2 However, the association between hypertensive pre...

Background Although the association between menopause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk has been studied extensively, the simultaneous role of chronological aging herein remains underexposed. This study aims to disentangle the relationships of menopausal status and chronological aging with CVD risk factors in the largest study population to date.

Introduction: The AHA guidelines for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) in Women describe hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) as a failed stress test, which might unmask early CVD...

Introduction: Menopause is thought to be associated with adverse cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, in particular lipid levels, but risk factors also deteriorate because of natural aging. Hypothesis: We hypothesized that menopausal status has an effect on CVD risk factors independent of age. Methods: We used data from LifeLines, a population-based prospective cohort study in the Netherlands. Female participants aged 18-65 years old were divided into groups according to menopausal status:...

CONTEXT: The Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities and is associated with increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Phylloquinone, menaquinones, and vitamin K status are associated with several components of MetS, but the association with MetS has hardly been studied to date. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to examine whether the intake and/or status of vitamin K is associated with MetS and its components. DESIGN: This study comprised two cohorts, one of 402...

Background: The Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities and is associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and all-cause mortality. Vitamin K intake (phylloquinone/menaquinones) and vitamin K status are associated with several components of MetS, but the association with MetS has hardly been studied to date. Objective: To examine whether dietary intake and/or status of vitamin K are associated with occurrence of MetS and its components. De...
