Table 2 Sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of the FRS model for the prediction of 10-year hCHD

From: Performance of the Framingham coronary heart disease risk score for predicting 10-year cardiac risk in adult United Arab Emirates nationals without diabetes: a retrospective cohort study

Cut-off predicted risk threshold, % Sensitivity, % (SE) Specificity, % (SE) PPV, % (SE) NPV, % (SE)
≥ 20 36.9 (9.9) 94.4 (1.4) 25.2 (7.9) 96.7 (0.8)
≥ 10 60.9 (10.1) 82.7 (2.3) 15.3 (3.8) 97.6 (0.8)
≥ 7.5* 73.8 (9.2) 76.7 (2.6) 14.0 (3.2) 98.3 (0.7)
  1. PPV, positive predictive value; NPV, negative predictive value; FRS, Framingham risk score; hCHD, hard coronary heart disease; SE, standard error; ROC, receiver operating characteristic
  2. *Optimal cutoff-point determined by ROC curve analysis
