Moving to benefit-based medicine with a lifetime risk model

10' education - Dec. 10, 2018 - ESC 2018 - Munich, Germany - Prof. Frank Visseren, MD - University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands

Current CV risk scores overestimate risk in elderly and underestimate risk in young subjects. Prof. Frank Visseren emphasizes the need of CV lifetime risk prediction and presents the U-prevent calculator that estimates gain in CVD-free life based on lifetime CV risk and treatment effects in individuals.
