    The Nurses' Health Studies (NHS) are long-running, questionnaire-based studies on women's health. The study was started in 1976 and expanded in 1989 and includes data from 238,000 female, nurse-participants. The study focuses on cancer, cardiovascular disease and risk factors for chronic health issues in women. The dataset includes both survey data and biospecimens.

  • Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS)

    Alternate Title(s)
    CHS
    Description

    An NHLBI-funded observational study of risk factors for cardiovascular disease in adults 65 years or older. Starting in 1989, and continuing through 1999, participants underwent annual extensive clinical examinations. Measurements included traditional risk factors such as blood pressure and lipids as well as measures of subclinical disease, including echocardiography of the heart, carotid ultrasound, and cranial magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI). At six month intervals between clinic visits, and once clinic visits ended, participants were contacted by phone to ascertain hospitalizations and health status. The main outcomes are coronary heart disease (CHD), angina, heart failure (HF), stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), claudication, and mortality. Participants continue to be followed for these events.

  • Atherosclerosis Risk in Community Study

    Alternate Title(s)
    ARIC
    Description

    The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study is a prospective epidemiological study conducted in four U.S. communities. ARIC is designed to investigate the causes of atherosclerosis and its clinical outcomes, and variations in cardiovascular risk factors, medical care, and disease by race, gender, location, and date. ARIC consists of two parts: a Cohort Component and a Community Surveillance Component. Data includes physiological data about participants, health history, dietary history, medication history, ECG data, demographic details, and administrative data.

    Description

    Project AsPIRE (Asian American Partnership in Research and Endowment) was a community-based participatory research program designed to develop, test, and evaluate a community health worker model designed to reduce cardiovascular disease and hypertension disparities among Filipino Americans living in New York and New Jersey. The project consisted of a pilot intervention and a 4-month full intervention. There are data available from the intervention, collected at baseline and at 4-months. Survey data is also available from the 8-month mark, although this data was collected for the full intervention only. The pilot intervention included 33 individuals with complete data (a total of 88 were recruited), and the full intervention included a total of 240 individuals with complete data (a total of 305 individuals were randomized into the intervention). Screening surveys with a limited amount of data were also collected between 2008 and 2012 in New York City and Jersey City, NJ and included a total of 1,312 Filipino individuals.

  • American College of Cardiology's National Cardiovascular Data Registry: Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion Registry: NYU Langone Health Submission
    NYU Dataset

    Alternate Title(s)
    LAAO
    Description

    This dataset is the NYU Langone Health Submission to the Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion (LAAO) Registry, collected through the American College of Cardiology's National Cardiovascular Data Registry. It contains patient-level data, designed to assess the prevalence, demographics, management, and outcomes of patients undergoing percutaneous and epicardial based left atrial appendage occlusion procedures to reduce the risk of stroke.

    The LAAO Registry is an observational registry meant for physicians and hospitals to use to support quality improvement efforts, facilitate research, and help develop clinical guidelines leading to improved evidence-based guideline recommendations.

    Description

    The Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA) project tracked the incidence of physical and cognitive impairment as well as dementia and cardiovascular diseases in elderly Latinos in the Sacramento region. The effects of hypertension, diabetes, and other cardiovascular risk factors, such as nutrition and lifestyle factors, were also examined.

    Description

    The Framingham Heart Study (FHS) is dedicated to identifying common factors or characteristics that contribute to cardiovascular disease (CVD). In 1948, an original cohort of 5,209 men and women between 30 and 62 years old were recruited from Framingham, MA. An Offspring Cohort began in 1971, an Omni Cohort in 1994, a Third Generation Cohort in 2002, a New Offspring Spouse Cohort in 2004 and a Second Generation Omni Cohort in 2003. Core research in the dataset focuses on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The data include biological specimens, molecular genetic data, phenotype data, samples, images, participant vascular functioning data, physiological data, demographic data, and ECG data.It is a collaborative project of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and Boston University.

  • American College of Cardiology National Cardiovascular Data Registry CathPCI: NYU Langone Submission
    NYU Dataset

    Alternate Title(s)
    ACC - NCDR Cath PCI
    Description

    This dataset is the NYU Langone submission to the ACC NCDR CathPCI registry. The American College of Cardiology National Cardiovascular Data Registry (ACC NCDR) CathPCI Registry assesses characteristics, treatments, and outcomes of cardiac disease patients who receive diagnostic catheterization or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. The registry data measures adherence to ACC/AHA clinical practice guideline recommendations, procedure performance standards, and appropriate use criteria for coronary revascularization. The CathPCI registry collects demographics, provider and facility characteristics, history/risk factors, cardiac status, treated lesions, intracoronary device utilization rates, adverse event rates, appropriate use criteria and compliance with ACC/AHA clinical guideline recommendations.
