This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The risk of dying from a heart attack in Sweden fell by 20% in the ten years from 1987 to 1996, according to data from Sweden's heart attack register. The register is the first in the world to provide comprehensive statistics on heart attack incidence and mortality. During the same period the risk of suffering a heart attack also declined - by around 10%. Earlier diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and better treatment methods are two of the reasons for the improvement, according to Curt-Lennart Spetz of the National Board of Health and Welfare.
