Coronary heart disease in residents of Rochester, Minnesota. II. Mortality, incidence, and survivorship, 1950-1975.

Coronary heart disease in residents of Rochester, Minnesota. II. Mortality, incidence, and... For the city of Rochester, Minnesota, the coronary heart disease mortality rate showed approximately the same percentage decline as that for the United States during the period 1968-1978. The incidence rates of coronary heart disease (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, and sudden unexpected death) for the period 1950-1975 are based on a total of 3,080 cases. The incidence showed a decrease approximately 10 years earlier than the decline in mortality and little change since that time. The age-adjusted case fatality rate for the incidence cases of myocardial infarction decreased from 18.7% in 1965-69 to 9.0% in 1970-75. The death rate during the 5 years following the diagnosis of angina also decreased by almost 50%, and the myocardial infarction patients dismissed from the hospital showed little change in subsequent survivorship. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mayo Clinic proceedings Pubmed

Abstract

For the city of Rochester, Minnesota, the coronary heart disease mortality rate showed approximately the same percentage decline as that for the United States during the period 1968-1978. The incidence rates of coronary heart disease (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, and sudden unexpected death) for the period 1950-1975 are based on a total of 3,080 cases. The incidence showed a decrease approximately 10 years earlier than the decline in mortality and little change since that time. The age-adjusted case fatality rate for the incidence cases of myocardial infarction decreased from 18.7% in 1965-69 to 9.0% in 1970-75. The death rate during the 5 years following the diagnosis of angina also decreased by almost 50%, and the myocardial infarction patients dismissed from the hospital showed little change in subsequent survivorship.
