  1. Forensic pathology in Northern Norway : Requested medico-legal autopsies in the counties of Finnmark and Troms 1973-1992.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this study was to analyse medico-legal autopsy rates among Norwegian citizens who died in the two northernmost counties of Norway during the 20-year period 1973-1992.

    Medico-legal autopsy rate was defined as the number of medico-legal autopsies divided by the total number of deaths.

    The rates were calculated according to year of death, manner of death, sex, age, police district and county.

    The material included 1539 medico-legal autopsies.

    In the total 20-year period 37.9% (n=1113) of the violent deaths and 1.2% (n=426) of the natural deaths were subjected to medico-legal autopsy.

    The annual rates increased gradually up to 1987.

    In the last 5-year period 51.7% of the violent deaths and 2.1% of the natural deaths were subjected to medico-legal autopsy.

    Among violent deaths in this period the medico-legal autopsy rates were : suicides 65.7%, motor vehicle traffic accidents 58.3%, falls 8.6%, and other violent deaths 77.1%. Females dying after a fall and due to natural causes were significantly less frequently than males subjected to medico-legal autopsy.

    These two categories of death also revealed a significant decrease in autopsy rate with increasing age (age group 0-29,30-59 and =60 years) in each 5-year period.

    In cases of violent death the medico-legal autopsy rate according to police district varied from 24.1% to 88.9% in the last 5-year period. (...)
