An important association between Bronchiectasis and the risk of cardiovascular events was published as an abstract in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
Results of the study revealed that the odds of coronary heart disease were 2.05 times higher in patients with a diagnosis of bronchiectasis compared to the general population. The odds of stroke were 1.38 times higher in patients with bronchiectasis compared to people without it.
