[en] The European Societies of Cardiology. Atherosclerosis and Hypertension agreed upon a table allowing to evaluate the coronary risk after 10 years according to five parameters (sex, age, smoking, total cholesterol, arterial blood pressure) and aggravating factors (familial history, diabetes mellitus, low HDL cholesterol, hypertriglyceridaemia). The risk level is based upon the equations of the prospective US study of Framingham. The calculation of such a risk is mainly interesting before considering intensified primary prevention in an individual free of any cardiovascular disease. The efforts should first focus on individuals with a high coronary risk, i.e. > 20% after 10 years. As far as secondary prevention is concerned, the patients should always be considered at high risk and beneficiate of all available therapeutic means.
