  The ten year probability of cardiovascular events can be calculated, but many people are unaware of their risk and unclear how to reduce it. The aim of this study was to assess whether a community based intervention, for men and women aged between 45 and 64 years without pre-existing coronary heart disease, would reduce their Framingham scores when reassessed one year by: Despite considerable effort in primary prevention, coronary heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the industrialized nations. The patient who survives his first myocardial infarction carries approximately a tenfold risk of recurrence and sudden death when compared to the normal population.

Primary prevention of coronary heart disease is meant for asymptomatic people with risk factors who have not yet developed clinically manifest cardiovascular disease. Secondary prevention is for people with an established cardiovascular disease, which would include a history of a heart attack or a stroke, coronary revascularization or 5/5(11). Chapter 11 covers primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, including an overview, cardiovascular risk, risk estimation charts, management, lifestyle, blood pressure, lipids, secondary prevention, high density lipoprotein and triglycerides, pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome, antithrombotic therapy, secondary prevention (post myocardial infarction), and special : Ali Khavandi.

He coined the term ‘primordial prevention’ to denote activities that prevented the penetration of risk factors into the population 1 by intervening to Author: Simona Giampaoli.
