Abstract

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is highly prevalent and contributes to disease burden and mortality in older adults. 1 The American Heart Association concluded that CVD is the leading cause of death in octogenarians, followed by cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. 1 Studies questioned the validity of traditional CVD risk factors to predict CVD-related events in older adults. 2 ,3 Therefore, we explored differences in nontraditional risk factors between octogenarians with vs without cardiovascular events across a 4.5-year follow-up.
