We studied 318 subjects aged 80 years or over included in the Cardiovascular Study in the Elderly (CASTEL).
Some well known risk factors (left ventricular hypertrophy, glucose intolerance, cholesterol, ApoB/ApoA ratio, triglycerides, proteinuria, cigarette smoking, and ECG abnormalities), whose importance in cardiovascular risk is definitely accepted for young adults, were very poor predictors of mortality in our survey.
On the contrary, FEV, reduction and blood uric acid were strong predictors.
