Table 2 Overall prevalence estimates of CVD and its subtypes: adults with T2D in Brazil (n = 912)

From: Contemporary (2019) prevalence of cardiovascular disease in adults with type 2 diabetes in Brazil: the cross-sectional CAPTURE study

CVD diagnosis Definition of CVD diagnosis Number of patients Prevalence [95% CI] (%)
CVD Cerebrovascular disease; carotid artery disease; CHD; peripheral artery disease; heart failure; cardiac arrhythmia; aortic disease 400 43.9 [40.9; 46.8]
Atherosclerotic CVD Cerebrovascular disease; carotid artery disease; CHD; peripheral artery disease 343 37.6 [34.7; 40.5]
CHD Myocardial infarction; stable coronary artery disease; other ischemic heart disease; past revascularization procedure 254 27.9 [25.2; 30.5]
Heart failure Symptomatic or asymptomatic heart failure; hospitalization for heart failure 113 12.4 [10.4; 14.4]
Cerebrovascular disease Ischemic, hemorrhagic or unspecified stroke; transient ischemic attack 79 8.7 [6.8; 10.5]
Peripheral artery disease Asymptomatic peripheral artery disease (low-ankle branchial index [< 0.90] or pulse abolition); claudication; limb ischemia; non-traumatic amputation 76 8.3 [6.6; 10.1]
Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction abnormalities Atrial fibrillation; atrial flutter; supraventricular or ventricular tachycardia; ventricular fibrillation. bradyarrhythmia: sinus node dysfunction or AV block 46 5.1 [3.6; 6.5]
Carotid artery disease 31 3.4 [2.3; 4.5]
Aortic disease Aortic dissection or aneurysm; thromboembolic aortic disease 5 0.5 [0.1; 1.0]
  1. Data are presented according to reducing prevalence in the CAPTURE Brazil sample
