Coronary Artery Calcification Survival Period Statistics

Coronary artery calcification has been found to be a strong predictor of survival, with higher calcium scores associated with increased mortality risk over time.

Statistic 1

"A CAC score of 100 or more is associated with a 10% to 15% chance of having a heart attack within the next 10 years."

Statistic 2

"People with zero coronary calcium have less than a 1% chance of having a heart attack per year."

Statistic 3

"Coronary artery calcification has been associated with a 2-4 times higher risk of cardiac events."

Sources Icon

Statistic 4

"Participants with extensive calcification (CAC >=400) have a 9 times higher coronary heart disease mortality (Risk Ratio, RR=9.67)."

Statistic 5

"Severe coronary artery calcification is associated with a 5-fold increase in heart attack among women and a 3-fold increase among men."

Statistic 6

"A score of more than 300 Agatston units indicates extensive Coronary Artery Calcification and is associated with the highest risk."

Statistic 7

"For people with CAC scores of 1-10, the risk of death within ten years is just 1.4%."

Statistic 8

"Around 33.8% of people with a CAC score of over 1000 will suffer a cardiovascular event within 10 years."

Statistic 9

"Among those aged 45-84 years, a CAC score of more than 300 has the strongest prediction power for cardiovascular disease."

Sources Icon

Statistic 10

"Adults aged 32-46 with higher CAC scores had a 5 times greater risk of coronary heart disease and a 3 times higher risk of cardiovascular disease than those with no CAC."

Sources Icon

Statistic 11

"Patients with a CAC score of 1000 or more had a substantially increased risk of total death as compared with those with scores of less than 10."

Sources Icon

Statistic 12

"An increase of 100 in the Agatston CAC score was associated with an approximately 10% increase in the risk of incident coronary heart disease."

Sources Icon

Statistic 13

"The 10-year event-free survival from cardiovascular disease is approximately 99% for women and 98% for men with CAC scores of 0."

Sources Icon

Statistic 14

"Participants with coronary artery calcium scores greater than 400 had a 5-fold increase in risks of coronary events."
