Possible predictors of mortality from idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy were studied in 356,222 men who were screened as part of the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial.
The vital status of each member of this cohort was ascertained through 1986.
Death certificates were obtained from state health departments and coded by a trained nosologist.
Individuals with a history of myocardial infarction were excluded.
A total of 206 deaths due to idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy occurred in the cohort of 356,222 men after an average of 12 years of follow-up.
The age-specific rates of mortality from idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy increased from 0.10 per 10,000 person-years among men aged 35-39 years to 1. 16 per 10,000 person-years among men aged 55-57 years.
