Validation of Framingham-REGICOR risk tables

The Framingham cardiovascular risk function became the worldwide reference instrument for cardiovascular risk screening in the 1990s. Adapting the Framingham equation to the event rate and risk factor prevalence in the population of Girona provided estimates much closer to the actual numbers of cases observed among men and women in Girona.

The adapted equation was validated by the VERIFICA study and in the 1995-2000 REGICOR cohort.
