  1. Does the predictive value of baseline coronary risk factors change over a 30-year follow-up ?

    Article - En anglais

    The association of baseline serum total cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, smoking and body mass index with coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality was analyzed among 1,619 men aged 40-59 at baseline.

    Analyses were made separately for the first, second and third decade of follow-up.

    Serum cholesterol and smoking more than 9 cigarettes daily were strong predictors of risk of CHD death (n=450) occurring early and late during the 30-year follow-up.

    After 20 years offollow-up, systolic blood pressure was no longer associated with CHD risk.

    In contrast, highest tertile of body mass index (over 24.7 kg/m2) was only then associated with increased CHD risk.
