Silent myocardial ischemia in middle aged men: Long term clinical course
During the years 1972–1975, a group of 2014 apparently healthy men participated in a cardiovascular survey examination aimed at detecting subclinical CAD by means of a comprehensive, noninvasive test program (4). All worked in 5 companies in Oslo, Norway, preselected since they had been giving regular annual or biennial health checks to their employees for some years. All available health data were scrutinized prior to entry into the study, and all those who had had any of the diseases noted in Table 1 were primarily excluded, as were all men who on arrival for the survey examination, reported that any of these diseases/disorders had been diagnosed or suspected elsewhere, prior to the survey examination.
