Abstract: In order to clarify the degree of coronary arteriosclerosis in Okinawa, we carried out comparative histological study of coronary arteriosclerosis in 418 autopsy cases, ranging from 50 to 79 of age, which were autopsied between 1983 and 1988 in Okinawa, Nagasaki and Akita districts. Coronary artery samples were collected from cases which had arteriosclerosis-related diseases such as ischemic heart diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, renal diseases, and collagen diseases. Arteriosclerotic lesions were prevalently seen in the following order : main trunk of the left coronary artery, right coronary artery and left circumflex artery. Degree of coronary arteriosclerosis was more severe in Akita than in Nagasaki and Okinawa. There was no significant difference in the degree of coronary arteriosclerosis in Okinawa and Nagasaki. Key words : Coronary arteriosclerosis, Okinawa, Nagasaki, Akita.
