Abstract Background Due to the opposing cardiovascular risk profiles of CAC volume and density, we tested the hypothesis that increased abdominal muscle area (AMA) and density (AMD) were significantly associated with lower coronary arterial calcium (CAC) volume and higher CAC density. Methods Using data from 787 participants from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, Ancillary Body Composition Study, we analyzed abdominal and chest computed tomography (CT) scans. Abdominal scans were scored...

Using one value for an individual's ankle brachial index (ABI) may inadequately quantify the risk for mortality and cardiovascular (CVD) events. Using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (2000-2015), 6,527 racial/ethnically diverse adults (62+/-10 years) free of known CVD had ABI assessment of their bilateral dorsalis pedis/posterior tibial arteries (4-vessels total) and followed for total mortality, incident CVD events/mortality. Individuals were classified into 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 ...

BACKGROUND: This study examined whether biological mechanisms linking dementia caregiving with an increased risk of coronary heart disease can be modified by psychosocial interventions and which caregivers might benefit the most from an intervention. METHODS: Spousal dementia caregivers were randomized to 12-week treatment with either a behavioral activation intervention (i.e., Pleasant Events Program PEP; n=60), or an active control Information and Support (IS; n=63) condition. Indicators of ca...

Experimental studies support a link between activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The relationship with subclinical atherosclerosis is uncertain. Among 1,699 individuals without prevalent CVD from the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis, we measured plasma renin activity (PRA) and aldosterone. Using multivariable logistic regression with restricted cubic splines, we assessed continuous log-transformed PRA and aldosterone associations with the a...

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is a potent marker of subclinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) and an independent predictor of future cardiovascular events ([1][1]). For these reasons, the 2018 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Cholesterol Guidelines

STUDY OBJECTIVES: The relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and heart failure (HF) incidence in postmenopausal women has been understudied given the limited representation of women in heart failure studies. We investigated the relationship between OSA risk factors and HF and its subtypes in postmenopausal women. METHODS: We performed a prospective analysis on the adjudicated HF outcomes in the Women's Health Initiative from enrollment (1993-1998) to September 30, 2016. HF with prese...

Higher levels of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) have been associated with the presence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), but prospective associations are unknown. We examined the association of circulating HGF levels with incident PAD. Between 2000 and 2002, HGF was measured in 6742 Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis participants without PAD. Incident clinical PAD, adjudicated on the basis of a positive history for the presence of disease-related symptoms or treatment, was ascertained thr...

Abstract Background and aims Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with inflammation and atherogenic lipoprotein abnormalities. Previous studies suggest an association of fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) with NAFLD. Therefore, we assessed the association of circulating FGF21 levels with inflammatory markers, lipoprotein profile and NAFLD in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA). Methods Among 6814 participants free of apparent cardiovascular disease at baseline (2...
