Clusters of AMI risk factors and their association with left ventricular hypertrophy: A population-based study within the Skaraborg Project, Sweden.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Risk factors for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are known to cluster and to be differently distributed in men and women. The aim of this study was to sex-specifically explore clusters of acknowledged AMI risk factors by factor analysis, and to study whether such clusters are associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), used as a subclinical measure of CHD.
