  1. Incidence of myocardial infarction in the Danish MONICA population 1982-1991.

    Article - En anglais

    Background Cardiovascular mortality has been declining in Denmark over the past 20 years.

    Trends in incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) over the period 1982-1991 are described within the framework of the World Health Organization MONICA Project.

    Methods The DAN-MONICA heart register included all cases of MI in 25-74-year-old men and women living in I 1 municipalities around Glostrup County Hospital evolving over a period of 10 years.

    They were identified retrospectively based mainly on relevant ICD diagnoses in death certificates and hospital discharge reports.

    Cases meeting WHO-MONICA criteria for definite or possible MI, recurrent as well as first-ever MI, were registered.

    Subsequent tracing of cases through national registers on deaths and hospitalizations by means of the patient's civil registration number ensured the completeness of the registration.

    Results A total of 6025 cases of MI occurred in the period, 4532 among men and 1493 among women.

    A total of 2923 men and 1047 women had a first-ever Ml in the period.

    The age-standardized rates show a definite decline over the registration period for men and a less distinct decline for women.

    Conclusions The DAN-MONICA heart register meets the requirements for completeness and uniformity throughout the registration period.

    Causes and magnitude of bias are well described. (...)
