  1. Changing prevalence of coronary heart disease risk factors and cardiovascular diseases in men of a rural area of Crete from 1960 to 1991.

    Article - En anglais

    This study compares the prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD), risk factors (RF), and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) among Cretan men from a rural area examined in 1960 and 1991.

    The study population consisted of 148 men in 1960 and 42 men in 1991 of the same age group (fifty-five to fifty-nine years old) and from the same rural area.

    All men had a complete examination of the cardiovascular system and a resting electrocardiogram (ECG).

    Systolic BP (SBP) = 140 mmHg was found in 42.6% of the subjects in 1960 and in 45.2% in 1991 (NS).

    Diastolic BP = 95 mmHg was found in 14.9% of the subjects in 1960 as opposed to 33.3% in 1991 (P<0.02).

    Total serum cholesterol (TSCH) = 260 mg/dL 6.7 mmol/L) was found in 12.8% of the subjects in 1960 and in 28.6% in 1991 (P<0.01).

    Heavy smokers (= 20 cigarettes/daily) were 27.0% in 1960 as compared with 35.7% in 1991 (P : NS) ; 5.4% of the subjects in 1960 had light physical activity (PA) as compared with 14.3% in 1991 (P<0.01) ; 74.7% of the subjects were farmers in 1960 as compared with 43.6% in 1991 (P<0.1).

    The prevalence of CHD was 0.7% in 1960 as compared with 9.5% in 1991 (P<0.001).

    Hypertensive heart disase was found in 3.4% of the subjects in 1960 and 4.8% in 1991 (NS).

    The prevalence of all major CVD was much higher in 1991 (19.1%) as compared with 1960 (8.8%) (P<0.01).

    In conclusion, the prevalence of CHD RF and CVD was much higher in 1991 than in 1960 for Cretan men of the same age group.
