Impact of incident myocardial infarction on the risk of venous thromboembolism: the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-10)
Background: Recent studies have demonstrated an association between venous thromboembolism (VTE) and arterial thrombotic diseases. <p> Objectives: We aimed to study the association between incident myocardial infarction (MI) and VTE in a prospective population-based cohort. <p> Methods: Study participants (n=29 506) were recruited from three surveys of the Tromsø Study (conducted in 1994-95, 2001-02 ...
CHA2DS2-VASc score, left atrial size and atrial fibrillation as stroke risk factors in the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-01)
Objective:<br> CHA2DS2-VASc score, left atrial (LA) size and atrial fibrillation (AF) have individually been associated with stroke risk. Our aim was to investigate the predictive ability of combinations of these factors for the odds of incident stroke in a population-based cohort study.<br> Methods:<br> We followed 2844 participants from the Tromsø Study from 1994 to 2012. Information on LA size ...
Temporal trends in incidence and case fatality of intracerebral hemorrhage. The Tromsø Study 1995-2012
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-16)
Background: The aim of this study was to explore temporal trends in incidence and case fa- tality rates of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) over the last two decades in a Norwegian mu- nicipality. <br>Methods: Incident cases of primary ICH were registered in the period from 1995 through 2012 in 32,530 par ticipants of the longitudinal population-based Tromsø Study. Pois- son regression ...
Atherosclerotic risk factors and risk of myocardial infarction and venous thromboembolism; Time-fixed versus time-varying analyses. The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-16)
<i>Background:</i> Single measurements of modifiable risk factors may underestimate associations with outcomes in cohorts. We aimed to compare risk estimates of myocardial infarction (MI) and venous thromboembolism (VTE) by atherosclerotic risk factors during long follow-up using time-fixed analyses without and with correction for regression dilution and time-varying analyses.<p> <p><i>Methods:</i> ...
Ischemic Stroke and Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in the General Population: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-07)
<i>Background</i> - Even though clinical data support a relation between ischemic stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE), the strength and time dependence of the association remain to be settled at the population level. We therefore aimed to investigate the association between ischemic stroke and VTE in a prospective population-based cohort.<p> <p><i>Methods and Results</i> - Participants (n=30 ...
