  • Identifying individuals at high risk of CVD is one of the main objectives of primary prevention and the first step towards treating high-risk patients with modifiable risk factors.
  • When evaluating a patient’s global CHD risk, it is important to consider all risk factors simultaneously.
  • The SCORE risk estimation system directly estimates total fatal CVD risk for clinical management of CVD risk in European populations.
  • The UKPDS risk engine is a good CHD risk estimation model for primary prevention of CHD in type 2 diabetic patients.
  • CUORE has produced a predictive equation specific to the Italian population.
