Cardiovascular disease mortality rates have fallen significantly in Sweden, according to epidemiological data published by the Department of Health and Social Affairs. A new report, Causes of Death in 1997, indicates that deaths from acute myocardial infarction experienced the greatest fall, with 7.5% fewer men and 10.2% fewer women dying from the condition. Cardiovascular disease continues to be the commonest cause of death in Sweden, however, at 48% of male and 49% of female deaths in 1997.
