    The global prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) is increasing, although its frequency varies with geographic region and there is a wide variation in prevalence of CAD between developing and industrialised countries.

    In many developed countries, CAD is the single leading cause of death. In the UK, it is responsible for about one in five male deaths and one in eight female deaths, causing around 15% of overall deaths. Rates are similar in other industrialised countries, with CAD responsible for 18% of total deaths in the US and 17% in Australia, and in may countries rates have declined since the 1960s
