Ischemic Stroke and Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in the General Population: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-07)
<b>Background:</b> 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.<br> <b>Methods and Results:</b> Participants (n=30 002) ...
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 ...
Atrial Fibrillation and Cause-Speciﬁc Risks of Pulmonary Embolism and Ischemic Stroke
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-29)
<p><i>Background</i>: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well‐established risk factor for ischemic stroke (IS). Emerging evidence also indicates an association between AF and pulmonary embolism (PE). Because IS may potentially mediate the observed risk of PE in AF, we aimed to assess the impact of AF on the cause‐specific risks of PE and IS in a large cohort recruited from the general population.</p> ...
Myocardial infarction and future risk of cancer in the general population—the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02-07)
The association between myocardial infarction (MI) and future risk of incident cancer is scarcely investigated. Therefore, we aimed to study the risk of cancer after a first time MI in a large cohort recruited from a general population. Participants in a large population-based study without a previous history of MI or cancer (n = 28,763) were included and followed from baseline to date of cancer, ...
Repeated measurements of carotid atherosclerosis and future risk of venous thromboembolism: the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-05)
<p><i>Background</i>: Whether a relationship between atherosclerosis and subsequent venous thromboembolism (VTE) exists is controversial.</p> <p><i>Objective</i>: To investigate the association between carotid atherosclerosis and VTE by using repeated measurements of intima media thickness (IMT) and total plaque area (TPA) in participants recruited from the general population.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: ...
