Background

While the association of ethnic group with individual cardiovascular diseases has been studied, little is known about ethnic differences in the initial lifetime presentation of clinical cardiovascular disease in contemporary populations.

Methods and results

We studied 1,068,318 people, aged ≥30 years and free from diagnosed CVD at baseline 90.9% White, 3.6% South Asian and 2.9% Black, using English linked electronic health records covering primary care, hospital admissions, acute coronary syndrome registry and mortality registry CALIBER platform. During 5.7 years median follow-up between 1997–2010, 95,224 people experienced an incident cardiovascular diagnosis. 69.9% 67.2%-72.4% of initial presentation in South Asian <60 yrs were coronary heart disease presentations compared to 47.8% 47.3%-48.3% in White and 40.1% 36.3%-43.9% in Black patients. Compared to White patients, Black patients had significantly lower age-sex adjusted hazard ratios HRs for initial lifetime presentation of all the coronary disease diagnoses stable angina HR 0.80 95% CI 0.68–0.93; unstable angina– 0.75 0.59–0.97; myocardial infarction 0.49 0.40–0.62 while South Asian patients had significantly higher HRs stable angina– 1.67 1.52–1.84; unstable angina 1.82 1.56–2.13; myocardial infarction– 1.67 1.49–1.87. We found no ethnic differences in initial presentation with heart failure Black 0.97 0.79–1.20; S Asian 1.040.87–1.26. Compared to White patients, Black patients were more likely to present with ischaemic stroke 1.24 0.97–1.58 and intracerebral haemorrhage 1.44 0.97–2.12. Presentation with peripheral arterial disease was less likely for Black 0.63 0.50–0.80 and South Asian patients 0.70 0.57–0.86 compared with White patients.

Discussion

While we found the anticipated substantial predominance of coronary heart disease presentations in South Asian and predominance of stroke presentations in Black patients, we found no ethnic differences in presentation with heart failure. We consider the public health and research implications of our findings.
