  1. Prevalence of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular risk factors in middle aged males in a defined population in central Sri Lanka.

    Article - En anglais

    In a cross-sectional survey, we estimated the prevalence of coronary heart disease in a sample of 975 middle-aged males (35-59 years), from a defined population in the Central province of Sri Lanka using the London School of Hygiene cardiovascular questionnaire and a 12-lead electrocardiogram.

    The estimated prevalence rates were : (a) Definitive evidence of ischemic heart disease (positive symptoms and ECG changes of ischemia), 16/1000 (95% C.L., 9-27). (b) Evidence of coronary heart disease based on history alone 54/1000 (95% C.L., 40-71). (c) Estimate based on ECG changes of ischemia without symptoms 32/1000 (95% C.L., 21-46).
