PROCAM takes into account gender, age, serum HDL and LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, smoking status, diabetes, family history of coronary heart disease and systolic blood pressure.
To identify studies that evaluate prediction models among Hispanic populations in the United States, the search criteria were applied to the same three databases for the identical time period using the following: (1) Cardiovascular (cardiovascular disease or myocardial infarction or coronary heart disease or coronary artery disease or angina or atherosclerosis), and (2) the MeSH term "Hispanic Americans," as well as Hispanic ethnicity words (Latino or Hispanic or Mexican American or Puerto Rican American or Dominican American or Cuban American), and (3) Prediction rules (Framingham risk score or PROCAM or Reynolds score).

In the reviewed studies, bariatric surgery reduced the relative risk for cardiovascular events by 18% to 79% using the Framingham score and by 8% to 62% using the PROCAM score.

Overall, the mixture of 4 g EPA+DHA and 2 g GLA (2:1 ratio) provided the greatest reduction, 43%, in the 10-year myocardial infarction risk as measured by the PROCAM program (which takes into account LDL, HDL, and triglyceride concentrations).

Another CVD risk assessment tool, the PROCAM equation, was applied.
The assessment uses the PROCAM (Prospective Cardiovascular Muenster study) Risk Calculator, developed after 25 years of research on 30,000 residents of Muenster, Germany.
To estimate the influence of changes in the distribution of risk factors -- such as systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, and smoking -- upon trends in coronary heart disease morbidity and mortality, we used regression coefficients from three cohort studies: the German cohort studies PROCAM (Prospective Cardiovascular Munster Study) and GRIPS (Gottingen Risk, Incidence, and Prevalence Study) and the Framingham Study.
Current data from the Helsinki Heart Study and the PROCAM study indicate that elevated triglyceride concentrations may also contribute to risk assessment and hence should be considered in making therapeutic decisions.
