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 ...
Effect of genetically low 25-hydroxyvitamin D on mortality risk: Mendelian randomization analysis in 3 large European cohorts
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-02)
The aim of this study was to determine if increased mortality associated with low levels of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) reflects a causal relationship by using a Mendelian randomisation (MR) approach with genetic variants in the vitamin D synthesis pathway. Individual participant data from three European cohorts were harmonized with standardization of 25(OH)D according to the Vitamin D ...
