Keyword searches of PubMed and PsycInfo databases were followed by manual searches of references from 2000 through 2016; 21 studies met inclusion criteria. Sample sizes ranged from 8 to 15,140, with a mean age of 50 years, and represented diverse ethnicities/races and countries of origin. Fourteen studies were cross-sectional, six were cohort studies, and one was a case study. Major risk factors were related to hypertension, diabetes, and age. Prevalence ranged from 2.3% to 53.3% across a variety of countries and patient populations. The wide range in prevalence may have been due to differences in risk factors for the sample populations. © 2018Elsevier, Inc.
