We investigated possible differences over time in underlying causes of death among validated definite myocardial infarction cases who were discharged following an index hospitalization in 1970,1980, and 1985 in the Twin Cites, MN.
No changes were observed in underlying causes of death assigned to patients who died prior to discharge in the 3 years.
Among in-hospital survivors of definite MI, however, age-adjusted rates of death from non-cardiovascular causes more than doubled between 1970 and 1985 (P<0.01).
More specifically, mortality rates for diabetes mellitus increased significantly from 1970 to 1985 (P<0.05), while those for neoplasms and diseases of the respiratory system increased non-significantly.
