英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Background(#br)Premature coronary artery disease (PCAD) seems to increase, particularly in developing countries. Given the lack of such studies in the country, this study examines the prevalence, associated cardiovascular risk factors, and coronary angiographic profile of the disease in Iraq.(#br) Methods(#br)Data was collected from a total of 445 adult patients undergoing coronary angiography at Duhok Heart Center, Kurdistan in a period between March and September 2014. Patients were divided into PCAD (male <45 years and female < 55 years) and mature coronary artery disease (MCAD).(#br) Results(#br)The prevalence of the angiographically documented PCAD was 31 %. The PCAD had higher rates of hyperlipidemia ( p = 0.04), positive family history of coronary artery disease ( p =...
