Sommaire de l'article

BACKGROUND
Determination of the correlation of ideal cardiovascular health variables among spousal or cohabitating partners may guide the development of couple-based interventions to reduce cardiovascular disease risk.

METHOD AND RESULTS
We used data from the HeartSCORE (Heart Strategies Concentrating on Risk Evaluation) study. Ideal cardiovascular health, defined by the American Heart Association, comprises nonsmoking, body mass index <25 kg/m

CONCLUSIONS
Intracouple concordance of ideal cardiovascular health variables supports the development and testing of couple-based interventions to promote cardiovascular health. Fruit and vegetable consumption and smoking may be particularly good intervention targets.
