Wydolność wysiłkowa i siła mięśniowa 18-latków a choroby sercowo-naczyniowe w starszym wieku – analiza danych ponad miliona szwedzkich poborowych

Kasper Andersen i wsp. Exercise capacity and muscle strength and risk of vascular disease and arrhythmia in 1.1 million young Swedish men: cohort study. BMJ 2015;351:h4543 (dostępny pełen tekst ang.)

Results: During a median follow-up of 26.3 years, 26 088 vascular disease events and 17 312 arrhythmia events were recorded. Exercise capacity was inversely associated with risk of vascular disease and its subgroups. Muscle strength was also inversely associated with vascular disease risk, driven by associations of higher muscle strength with lower risk of heart failure and cardiovascular death.
