Abstract
The authors evaluated prevalence of aortal atherosclerosis in dependence on radiation and non-radiation factors in workers underwent occupational prolonged irradiation.The study included 22,377 workers of nuclear industry enterprise "Mayak", with verified diagnosis of aortal atherosclerosis. Up to 31th December 2008, a total of 1,840 aortal atherosclerosis cases were registered in the examinees group. Aortal atherosclerosis prevalence appeared to depend reliably on sex, age, smoking habit (in males), alcohol consumption (in males) and arterial hypertension. Findings are that aortal atherosclerosis prevalence was higher in males and females underwent external gamma-irradiation of total dose over 0.5 Gy, in males and females underwent internal alpha-irradiation from incorporated plutonium of total absorbed radiation dose in liver over 0.025 Gy. Thus, aortal atherosclerosis prevalence in workers underwent occupational irradiation de- pended both on radiational and non-radiational factors.
