Ischaemic heart disease arises when blood flow to the cardiac muscle is reduced by restriction of flow in the coronary Population variation for risk variables in ischaemic heart disease book.

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.

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.

Purpose We aimed to predict individual risk of ischemic heart disease and stroke in 5-year survivors of childhood cancer.

Of all the chronic diseases, ischaemic heart disease (IHD) has been the object of the most detailed epidemiological study. We now have much information on possible causes of the disease and, with a reasonable degree of precision, can predict its future occurrence; that is, among an apparently healthy adult population we can distinguish those individuals with a high risk from those Cited by: Trends in Ischemic Heart Disease Death Rates for Blacks and Whites -- United States, Duringischemic heart disease (IHD) caused 21% of all deaths and 65% of deaths attributed to heart disease (1).

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=).
