    Article - En anglais

    Background A 9.5-year follow-up of the Kaunas-Rotterdam Intervention Study (KRIS) provided an opportunity to compare mortality patterns and rates in a population from Lithuania, one of the former republics of the Soviet Union, with a population from the Netherlands.

    These populations consisted of 2452 and 3365 males, respectively, aged 45-60 years.

    In 1972-1974, these males were extensively screened for cardiovascular risk factors, using uniform methods.

    Methods and results During the follow-up, 303 males in Kaunas (Lithuania) and 350 males in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) died.
