Dramatisk fald i hjertedødelighed i Danmark fra 1970 til 2015.

Translated title of the contribution: Evident decline in mortality from ischaemic heart disease in Denmark from 1970 to 2015

Abstract

The decline in mortality from ischaemic heart disease (IHD) of 81% from 1990 to 2015 is dramatic and one of the greatest successes of Danish public health care. Improved treatment regimes and changes in modifiable risk factors contribute equally to the decline in mortality (47% vs. 44%). The standardised rate of cardiac mortality per 100,000 Danes for both women and men under 65 years of age were in 2017 so modest (4 vs 15), that a transformation from heart disease to heart healthy seems realistic.
