Tracy, Ph.D., and Donald M. Lloyd-Jones, M.D.: Lifetime Risks of Cardiovascular Disease In recent decades, clinical and open public health efforts to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease have emphasized the importance of calculating global, short-term risk estimates.1 However, the majority of adults in the usa who are considered to be at low risk for coronary disease in the short term are actually at high risk across their staying lifespan.2,3 Estimates of the lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease provide a more comprehensive assessment of the entire burden of the condition in the overall population, and in the foreseeable future now, because they consider both the risk of coronary disease and competing risks until participants reach an advanced age group.4,5 Such estimates can help guide open public health policy, allowing projections of the overall burden of coronary disease in the population.Among males in the high-risk group, there was no significant decrease in absolute risk regarding the end points. The P value for the interaction between tumor treatment and risk regarding death from prostate cancer was 0.07 . Discussion A significant absolute reduction in the rate of death from any cause, the death rate from prostate tumor, and the chance of metastases in the radical-prostatectomy group continuing after up to 23.24 months of follow-up , without evidence that these benefits diminished as time passes. In analyses according to age and tumor risk, the effects were more pronounced in men youthful than 65 years of age and in men with intermediate-risk tumors. However, among men more than 65 years who underwent radical prostatectomy, there is a significantly decreased threat of metastases and dependence on palliative treatment.
