Ischemic heart disease--a cause of unexpected sudden death in black people



Ischemic heart disease--a cause of unexpected sudden death in black people



South African Medical Journal 58(7): 271-272



Myocardial infarction has been found to be a significantly frequent cause of unexpected sudden death in Black males in Pretoria and its vicinity. A study of 758 autopsies performed for unexplained sudden death in Blacks revealed 39 fatal infarcts in 511 males but only 1 in 247 females. The condition became evident in the third decade, rose sharply in the fourth and declined gradually thereafter.
