Importance In the 2017 American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) guideline, the definition of hypertension was lowered from a blood pressure (BP) of greater than or equal to 140/90 to greater than or equal to 130/80 mm Hg. The new diastolic BP threshold of 80 mm Hg was recommended based on expert opinion and changes the definition of isolated diastolic hypertension (IDH). Objective To compare the prevalence of IDH in the United States, by 2017 ACC/AHA and 2003 Joint N...

Abstract The relationship between lung and heart diseases has long been recognized, with necropsy studies demonstrating silent myocardial infarctions or coronary artery calcification in patients with advanced emphysema as the death cause. Improvements in non-invasive techniques and epidemiologic approaches established that lung and cardiovascular diseases frequently coexist in mid and late life. Even among those without diagnosed lung disease, lower than expected forced vital capacity, forced ex...

Abstract Background Heart failure (HF) hospitalization places patients at increased short-term risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). Long-term risk for VTE associated with incident HF, HF subtypes, or structural heart disease is unknown. Objectives In the ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities) cohort, VTE risk associated with incident HF, HF subtypes, and abnormal echocardiographic measures in the absence of clinical HF was assessed. Methods During follow-up, ARIC identified incident HF and...

Abstract Background and Aims Elevated serum calcium and phosphorus have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disorders. We evaluated whether abnormal calcium and high serum phosphorus are associated cross-sectionally with echocardiographic measures of left ventricular (LV) structure and function, as doing so may provide insight into the etiology of cardiac disorders. Methods and Results Included in the analysis were 5,213 Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study (ARIC) particip...

After more than a decade of relatively modest advancements, heart failure therapeutic development has accelerated, with the PARADIGM-HF trial and the SHIFT trial demonstrated significant reductions in cardiovascular death and heart failure hospitalization for sacubitril-valsartan and in heart failure hospitalization alone for ivabradine. Several heart failure therapies have since received or stand on the verge of market approval and promise substantive advances in the treatment of chronic heart ...
