The Cardiovascular Health Study is a population-based longitudinal study of 5,201 adults aged 65 years and older.
Prevalences of myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, congestive heart failure, peripheral artery disease, stroke, and transient ischemic attack were ascertained between June 1989 and May 1990 in participants recruited from Forsyth County, North Carolina; Washington County, Maryland; Sacramento County, California; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
A medical history was taken to obtain self-reports of prevalent disease.
For all participants, use of nitrates was ascertained to document angina, electrocardiograms were used to document prevalent myocardial infarction, and ankle-arm blood pressure studies were used to document peripheral artery disease.
