Multimorbidity and cardiovascular disease: A call for interdisciplinary research and personalized cardiovascular care

In a Guest Editorial, Kazem Rahimi, Carolyn Lam, and Steven Steinhubl discuss PLOS Medicine's Special Issue on cardiovascular disease and multimorbidity. The demographic shift towards older populations across the globe and the relatively slower decline in morbidity compared with mortality from cardiovascular disease have resulted in increasing numbers of people with both cardiovascular disease and other chronic and disabling conditions. The authors call for interdisciplinary research and personalized cardiovascular care to better manage patients with cardiovascular disease and multimorbidity.
