Jakie jest ryzyko choroby sercowo-naczyniowej w ciągu całego życia dla osób w średnim wieku? Badanie Cardiovascular Lifetime Risk Pooling Project

John T. Wilkins i wsp – Lifetime Risk and Years Lived Free of Total Cardiovascular Disease JAMA. 2012;308:1795

At an index age of 45 years, overall lifetime risk for total CVD was 60.3%  for men and 55.6%  for women.

Lifetime risk estimates for total CVD were high (>30%) for all individuals, even those with optimal risk factors in middle age. However, maintenance of optimal risk factor levels in middle age was associated with substantially longer morbidity-free survival.
