  1. Fulltext. The next generation : poor compliance with risk factor guidelines in the children of parents with premature coronary heart disease.

    Article - En anglais



    The offspring of individuals with premature coronary heart disease are themselves at increased risk for myocardial infarction before the age of 55.

    Consensus panels have recommended that all such offspring undergo an evaluation of cardiovascular risk, including cholesterol testing.


    To examine self-reported rates of cardiovascular risk factor assessment in this population, we conducted a telephone survey of 318 Canadian with premature coronary heart disease and of one offspring from 298 (94%) of the 318 families.
