Brief Summary:
Although the mortality rate among soccer players is low, it causes much impact on the entire community and is a fascinating conundrum. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cardiovascular risk of soccer referees, to describe the frequency of cardiovascular risk considering age groups younger and older than 35 years old and to relate the Framingham and PROCAM indices for the comparison of cardiovascular risk in soccer referees. 50 referees of Paulista Soccer Federation were subjected to clinical and laboratory based evaluations at the Center for Sports Health at the Faculty of Medicine of ABC, and divided into two groups: lower and higher than 35 years of age.
