Clinical Trial – An Observational Study of Natural History of Cardiovascular Diseases – Cardiovascular Diseases

The purpose of the study is to estimate the contemporary prevalence of cardiovascular diseases in the United Kingdom (UK) and to describe the incidence and prevalence of stroke, mini stroke (TIA), Heart Attack (MI), deaths and interventions repairs for carotids and occlusive arterial disease in a large population. This study will also allow us to obtain reliable information on the age- and sex-specific relevance of tobacco and alcohol consumption, obesity, diabetes and blood pressure as risk factors for different cardiovascular diseases. By following up a large group of participants for 5 years, we will be able to estimate the annual risk of stroke and other CVD events associated with asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis and atrial fibrillation.
