Over the past two centuries, coronary artery disease has emerged as an important cause of morbidity and death in industrialized nations. Increased life expectancy and changed habits (regarding nutrition, physical activity, and smoking) have contributed to this dramatic epidemiologic shift. During the last 50 years, a decline in the coronary artery disease mortality rate was observed due to therapeutic advances and prevention measures targeted at people with coronary artery disease and those potentially at risk for it. This article highlights important epidemiologic data and some definitions in the context of coronary artery disease are presented.
