During 1945 and 1946 a study was made of 866 male patients, 18 through 39 years of age, for whom the principal diagnosis was coronary artery disease. These patients included 416 who had survived typical attacks of acute myocardial infarction and whose case histories were obtained from the Veterans Administration, Washington, D. C., and 450 patients who had died while in the Army and whose autopsy protocols were in the files of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Washington, D. C. The results of this study were published in the American Heart Journal1 during 1948.
