Sex Differences in the Impact of Body Mass Index on the Risk of Future Atrial Fibrillation: Insights From the Longitudinal Population-Based Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-04-19)
<p><i>Background</i>: Atrial fibrillation (AF) prevalence is increasing, and body mass index (BMI) is a risk factor for AF. However, sex differences in the impact of BMI on AF risk have not been fully elucidated.</p> <p><i>Methods and Results</i>: Data from the fourth survey (1994–1995) of the Tromsø Study (Norway) were used to investigate the association of single‐measurement BMI on future AF ...
Left atrial diameter, left ventricle filling indices, and association with all-cause mortality: Results from the population-based Tromsø Study.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-28)
<p><i>Aims</i>: To examine the associations between diastolic dysfunction indices and long‐term risk of all‐cause mortality in adults over 23‐year follow‐up.</p> <p><i>Methods and results</i>: Participants (n = 2734) of the population‐based Tromsø Study of Norway had echocardiography in 1994–1995. Of these 67% were repeated in 2001 and/or 2007–2008. Mortality between 1994 and 2016 was determined ...
