  • ‡One individual did not have an autopsy but was known to have coronary artery stents and was counted as having ≥70% coronary artery narrowing.BMI, body mass index; CAD, coronary artery disease; LV, left ventricle; LVH, left ventricular hypertrophy; NA, not applicable; NR, not reported; RV, right ventricle.
