Recurrent Coronary Heart Disease

Based on
D’Agostino RB, Russell MW, Huse DM, Ellison RC, Silbershatz H, Wilson PW, Hartz SC. Primary and subsequent coronary risk appraisal: new results from the Framingham study. American heart journal. 2000 Feb 1;139(2):272-81. PMID:10650300.

Outcome
Subsequent CHD (includes mostly hospitalized events consisting of myocardial infarction, coronary insufficiency, angina pectoris, and sudden and non-sudden coronary death)

Duration of follow-up
Maximum of 4 years, 2-year risk prediction

Population of interest
Individuals who had at least one CHD event or ischemic stroke before examination and survived the acute stage of that event.

Predictors

  • Age
  • Systolic blood pressure (SBP)
  • Cigarette smoking status (1 if current smoker, 0 otherwise)
  • Fasting lipid level (total and HDL cholesterol)
  • Physician diagnosis of diabetes at the current or a previous examination
