Background: Cardiovascular disease is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world and it is expected to be the main cause of death by 2020. The aim of this study was providing geographical distribution map of the rate of death caused by cardiovascular diseases in the cities of Isfahan province, Iran, during 2005 to 2009.Methods: The rate of all the deaths in Isfahan province within 2005 to 2009 was provided. The collected data was used to find out the rate of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases and preparing geographical distribution maps. Then, by putting down the death rates for different sexes (men and women), the geographical distribution map for deaths with regards to cardiovascular diseases was drawn.Finding: Death rates due to cardiovascular problems were higher in main and central cities of the province. Death rate was higher in men than women.Conclusion: The observed model main and central cities is probably due to unsuitable diet, lack of motion, using new technologies and environmental pollutions including existence of some elements due to environmental pollutants such as industries, transportations of vehicles and air pollution, which are more prevalent in the main cities of the province. Also, due to existence of medical university centers and more health facilities in the main cities of the province, such as Isfahan, Najafabad, Borkhar and Maymeh, the registration system for deaths and diagnosing the causes of deaths are more accurate than other cities and towns of the province. The difference between two sexes could be due to in heritage, male hormones, some social factors, increasing fat around abdomen in men, exciting or even offensive behaviors in men, ignoring weight increase in men as compared to women and smoking.
