The prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) was determined in a population survey in Mauritius where the prevalence of non-insulin dependent diabetes and mortality from CHD are amongst the highest in the world.
Men and women aged 35-74 years of all major ethnic groups were included: Asian Indians (Hindus and Muslims), Creoles and Chinese.
ECG abnormalities suggesting either « probable CHD » or « possible CHD » were defined using standard criteria.
The overall prevalence of probable CHD was 2. 7% in men and 0.9% in women, and that of probable or possible CHD together 17.8% in men and 33.3% in women.
