A pair-matched case-control study was carried out at Govt. Medical College Hospital, Nagpur, to investigate association between coronary prone behaviour pattern (CPBP) and coronary heart disease (CHD). The study included 186 cases of CHD and equal number of controls matched for age, sex and socioeconomic status. CPBP identified to be significantly associated with CHD (OR = 3.23, 95% CI 1.73-6.02). The estimates of attributable risk proportion (ARP) and population attributable risk proportion i(PARP) were calculated to the 69.04 (42.19-83.38) and 16.93 (6.25-31.45) respectively. This study thus identified CPBP as a significant risk factor of CHD in this population.
