Traduction en anglais : Early diagnosis of silent atherosclerosis and detection of cardiovascular risk factors : a new strategy for cardiovascular disease prevention.
The authors present a new strategy for cardiovascular disease prevention based on risk factor detection in occupational medicine and silent atherosclerosis detection in a specialized investigation centre.
Employees from several firms in the Paris region were searched, in their working place, for cardiovascular risk factors, including blood cholesterol measurement.
The subjects at risk thus selected underwent non-invasive explorations aimed at an early detection of silent atherosclerosis.
Extracoronary plaques in the carotid, aorta and femoral arteries were detected by high-resolution ultrasonography, and coronary calcifications by ultrafast CT.
