Study design

The Étude sur la Vieillissement Artériel (EVA) Study is a general population study based in Nantes, France. Individuals between the age of 59 and 71 were recruited from electoral rolls and via information campaigns. Spouses of recruited participants were asked to join the study if their age was appropriate. The study protocol was approved by the Comité d’éthique du Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Kremlin-Bicêtre, and written informed consent was obtained from all participants.
