A model for predicting the future incidence of coronary heart disease within percentiles of coronary heart disease risk.
McNeil JJ, Peeters A, Liew D, Lim S, Vos T. McNeil JJ, et al. J Cardiovasc Risk. 2001 Feb;8(1):31-7. doi: 10.1177/174182670100800105. J Cardiovasc Risk. 2001. PMID: 11234724
The model provides a relatively simple tool for lifetime risk prediction for subgroups within a population. It allows an estimation of the absolute primary CHD risk in different populations and will help identify subgroups of the adult population where primary CHD p …
