Human index finger (2D), to ring finger(4D), 2D:4D ratio attract considerable research interest because they exhibit sexual dimorphism and are linked to several traits. The objective of the present study was to find 2D:4D, which could be used as a marker for predisposition to CAD as assessed by ECG, 2D-ECHO and coronary angiography. This study includes 100 male subjects; 50 subjects with CAD and 50 subjects without CAD of age between 30-80 years. Finger lengths were measured twice for both hands using digital calliper. The results were tabulated and subjected to statistical analysis. 2D and 4D ratio was found more in men with CAD which was statistically significant (P < 0.01), supporting a positive correlation between high 2D:4D and CAD in males.
Keywords: Finger Length Ratio; 2D:4D; CAD
