In Stockholm county, a rapid decline in mortality from acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was observed among middle aged men in the early 1980s.
In the present study survival among AMI patients from 1976 to 1984 was investigated in order to explore whether improvements in survival may have contributed to this decline.
AMI patients aged 30-74 years (n=16108) were identified through a hospital discharge register.
Deaths within one year of hospital admission were ascertained by means of linkage to the national cause of death register.
