An epidemiological study was conducted on 5163 men aged 40-59 years, made by occupational samples, from Florence and Rome to identify, by a three-stage procedure, subjects with asymptomatic silent ischemic heart disease (SIHD).
This report describes some coronary risk factors.
Men who are free heart disease were compared with : (1) those having a low probability of SIHD (ECG signs only ; n=439) ; (2) those having a high probability of SIHD (ECG signs plus echographic signs, or positive markers of deficient perfusion, or altered radionuclide ventricular ; n=104), (3) those having a definite SIHD (signs of the first two groups plus evidence from coronary angiography ; n=25).
