Angina strongly predicts CVD

Positive Rose angina scores are highly predictive of cardiovascular events and death, according to a large UK study.

Researchers at the University of Glasgow screened 15,406 people aged 45-64 and followed up 1,468 found to have angina over 20 years.

Women with angina were twice as likely to develop heart failure as controls.

The likelihood of death was 20 per cent higher than controls among women with angina and 40 per cent higher among men.
