© 2017 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, CVD remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries and is expected to become so worldwide by 2020. The economic, social and human costs associated with CVD treatment are immense. To improve diagnosis, prevention and treatment, it is thus urgent to refine classic CVD risk scores and identify new genetic, cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying disease initiation and early progression. This chapter examines advances in our understanding of the role of telomere shortening in the etiopathogenesis of CVD, and discusses limitations and perspectives for future research.
