Risk calculators and risk factors for Coronary heart disease prevention

Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]

Overview

Prevention of coronary heart disease can be divided into primary prevention aimed at preventing an initial episode or manifestion of the disease, and secondary prevention aimed at preventing a second episode in a patient with coronary artery disease or a coronary artery disease equivalent. It is critical to perform risk factor assessment to identify optimal candidates for primary prevention and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease.
