Abstract The prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD) is increasing in Asia, including Hong Kong and mainland China, where it is a major cause of death and disability.1 Patients with CHD are typically diagnosed by physician with one or more of three inter-related (but clinically distinct) conditions: myocardial infarction (MI), angina pectoris, or heart failure. This diagnostic conceptualisation has led to important increases in specific treatments with researchers increasingly focusing their attention on comparing the efficacy of one treatments with another among homogeneous groups of patients meeting explicit diagnostic criteria. Comparing the burden of illness and treatment effectiveness for CHD across the spectrum of patients with frequently co-occurring conditions, such as MI, angina pectoris or heart failure, requires a common outcome measure. Yet, a major limitation of existing condition-specific health-related quality of life (HRQL) instruments is that they are not suitable for making comparisons across different CHD diagnoses. The purpose of this study was to translate the MacNew health-related quality of life questionnaire2 (MacNew) and the Myocardial Infarction Dimensional Assessment Scale3 (MIDAS) into Chinese, and to examine their psychometric properties in Chinese patients with differential diagnoses of CHD, including MI, angina pectoris or heart failure.
