ÖAtherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASKVD) are among the most important and preventable causes of death today. In developing countries such as our country, it is one of the important duties of family physicians to identify individuals at high risk of cardiovascular disease, to prevent the development of the disease in the early period, and to follow up high-risk individuals. Many risk factors have been identified to prevent ASPVD. Known modifiable risk factors include smoking, overweight, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, physical inactivity, and unhealthy diet. Various scoring systems have been created in order to investigate the risk factors that cause atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases and to make their
effects easier to understand. There are many risk scores such as SCORE, SCORE2, INTERHEART, PROCAM, Framingham Risk Score, Reynolds, WHO/ISH in order to identify risky individuals in the fight against cardiovascular diseases, to predict disease risk and to develop approaches for risky individuals.
