  1. Long-term epidemiologic prediction of coronary disease : the framingham experience.

    Article - En anglais

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a complex problem involving lipid deposition, pressure, rheologic forces, carbohydrate tolerance and thrombogenesis.

    The major contributors identified through epidemiologic research include atherogenic personal attributes, living habits which promote them, signs of a compromised coronary circulation and host susceptibilit, to these risk factors.

    Of the atherogenic risk attributes, such as blood lipids, blood pressure, glucose tolerance and fibrinogen, each independently contributes to risk, and the risk associated with any one is compounded by the presence ofthe others.

    The risk associated with hypertension, hyperlipidemia or diabetes varies widely depending on the level of associated risk factors.
