Sažetak

In a group of industrial workers aged 35-69 (719 males and 221 Females}, coronary heart disease and arterial hypertension were studied. The methods and applied diagnostic criteria are described and discussed. The results and findings are tabulated and presented in 29 tables. The prevalence of coronary heart disease was found to be 63 per 1000 in males and 31 per 1000 in females, or (including the category with ECG abnormalities only) 154 per 1000 in males and 158 per 1000 in females. The distribution of arterial blood pressure values shows that the systolic pressure of 152 Hg mm and more and the diastolic pressure of 92 Hg mm and more respectively, as well as the combination of these values were found in a ratio of 420 per 1000 in males and 480 per 1000 in females. Coronary heart disease was significantly more frequent in married persons with greater familiar responsibility (with two and more children), among smokers, obese and hypertensive persons and persons consuming mainly animal fats. Coronary heart disease was also more frequent among mesomorphyc and endomorphyc somatotypes. Coronary heart disease was recorded more frequently in males than in females. Besides, the frequency of coronary heart disease slightly tended to increase in older male age groups. Arterial hypertension was more frequent in females, as well as in older age groups in bo.th sexes. The increased arterial blood pressure values have proved to be also associated with hypertensive changes in the eyeground and with obesity.
