disease end-points did not meet our inclusion criteria. Globally physical inactivity accounted for % of ischaemic heart disease, 11% of ischaemic stroke, 14% of diabetes, 16% of colon cancer and 10% of breast cancer. The results show small differences between males and females, due in part to differences in level of exposure and to. Jun 06,  · Depression was not a risk factor for ischaemic heart disease in women on multivariate analysis (adjusted ; to ; P=). Anxiety and subsequent ischaemic heart disease were not significantly associated in men or women.

Coronary heart disease Coronary heart disease (CHD) occurs when there is a blockage in the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart muscle. There are two major clinical forms: heart attack—an acute life-threatening event when the blood vessel supplying the heart itself is suddenly completely blocked, threatening to damage the heart.

Ischaemic heart disease arises when blood flow to the cardiac muscle is reduced by restriction of flow in the coronary circulation. Most frequently, this is due to atheromatous plaques in the large epicardial coronary arteries (Fig.

).Atheromatous plaques most often form in areas where linear blood flow is disturbed, such as bends in the vessel or near branching vessels.

Dec 18,  · Crete has been of great epidemiological interest ever since the publication of the Seven Countries Study. In a well-defined area of rural Crete was studied, with only scarce signs of coronary heart disease (CHD) despite the unfavorable risk profile.

The same population was re-examined twelve years later aiming to describe the trends of CHD risk factors over time and discuss some key Cited by: 7. Risk factors for major ischaemic heart disease (acute myocardial infarction or sudden death) have been investigated in a prospective study of men aged years drawn from general practices in 24 British towns.

Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as coronary heart disease (CHD) or ischemic heart disease (IHD), involves the reduction of blood flow to the heart muscle due to build-up of plaque in the arteries of the heart. It is the most common of the cardiovascular diseases. Types include stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac runrevlive.comcations: Heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms.

Ischaemic heart disease is a global priority of health-care policy, because of its social repercussions and its impact on the health-care system. Yet there is little information on coronary morbidity in Spain and on the effect of the principal risk factors on risk of coronary heart runrevlive.com by: Jan 01,  · Objectives Being one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in developed countries, ischaemic heart disease's (IHD) incidence and mortality present clear differences between and within countries.

Several authors already proposed possible explanations based on the demography, environmental factors, diet and level of urbanisation. This study reflects the Portuguese reality Cited by: 7.

A critical appraisal is made of the evidence that depression is a causal risk factor for coronary heart disease. PubMed and Science Citation Index were searched for relevant papers. Forty eight papers satisfying inclusion criteria and reporting an association between a measure of depression and a coronary disease outcome were compared in terms of baseline assessment, exposure and endpoint Cited by: 6.

Of all the chronic diseases, ischaemic heart disease (IHD) has been the object of the most detailed epidemiological study.
