Open Peer Review Period: Sep 19, 2019 - Nov 14, 2019
(closed for review but you can still tweet)

NOTE: This is an unreviewed Preprint

Warning: This is a unreviewed preprint (What is a preprint?). Readers are warned that the document has not been peer-reviewed by expert/patient reviewers or an academic editor, may contain misleading claims, and is likely to undergo changes before final publication, if accepted, or may have been rejected/withdrawn (a note "no longer under consideration" will appear above).

Peer-review me: Readers with interest and expertise are encouraged to sign up as peer-reviewer, if the paper is within an open peer-review period (in this case, a "Peer-Review Me" button to sign up as reviewer is displayed above). All preprints currently open for review are listed here. Outside of the formal open peer-review period we encourage you to tweet about the preprint.

Citation: Please cite this preprint only for review purposes or for grant applications and CVs (if you are the author).

Final version: If our system detects a final peer-reviewed "version of record" (VoR) published in any journal, a link to that VoR will appear below. Readers are then encourage to cite the VoR instead of this preprint.

Settings: If you are the author, you can login and change the preprint display settings, but the preprint URL/DOI is supposed to be stable and citable, so it should not be removed once posted.

Submit: To post your own preprint, simply submit to any JMIR journal, and choose the appropriate settings to expose your submitted version as preprint.

Warning: This is an author submission that is not peer-reviewed or edited. Preprints - unless they show as "accepted" - should not be relied on to guide clinical practice or health-related behavior and should not be reported in news media as established information.

Objective To predict the incidence of recurrent cardiovascular events in patients with stable coronary heart disease in one year, a simple and robust nomogram was established and validated. Method The predictive model was developed and validated in two prospective coronary artery disease cohorts. The total population was 3618, with 589 recurrent cardiovascular events. Seven-tenths of the total population were randomly selected for model development, and LASSO regression was used to extract features from the information needed for routine diagnosis and treatment. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to establish the prediction model, which was displayed by nomograph. Internal validation was conducted using the remaining three-tenths of the population.The performance of nomograph was evaluated according to its calibration, identification and clinical practicability. Result Prognostic factors consisting of 10 selected features were significantly associated with recurrent cardiovascular events. Predictors of prognostic evaluation model included age, heart rate, diastolic pressure, triglyceride, red blood cell count, grade of Hypertension´╝î history of hyperlipidemia, history of revascularization, use of clopidogrel, use of ACEI or ARB. The model has good discrimination. The C index is 0.722 in the development set and 0.711 in the validation set. Nomograph also has good calibration. Decision curve analysis shows that radiography is useful in clinic. Conclusion This study developed a relatively accurate nomograph to predict the incidence of recurrent cardiovascular events in patients with stable coronary heart disease within one year.
