Estimation of CHD risk in a french working population using a modified framingham model.
We adapt a recent model from the Framingham study (Circulation 1991 ; 83 : 356-362) to predict CHD in France for both sexes over a large age range.
Calculations were based on data from the French PCV-METRA study.
In France, the Paris Prospective Study model could predict CHD but only for men aged 43-53 years.
Applied to men 43-53 years from the PCV-METRA, the Framingham model estimated a 5-year CHD risk (4%) lower than the risk reported in the Framingham sample, but significantly higher than the risk estimated by the French model (2%). Differences in estimated CHD risk between the Framingham and the PCV-METRA samples were explained for only 30% by adjustment on major CHD risk factors (mainly HDL-cholesterol and tobacco).
