AMI cases incidence rates trends

Trends in the rates of mortality, incidence, AMI attack and 28-day deaths between 1990 and 1999 were studied in the Girona population ages 35 to 74 years. At baseline, the average annual rate of heart attacks was 258 per 100,000 men (CI: 95%, 249-267) and 55 per 100,000 women (CI: 95%, 51-59). Mortality rates were 99 (CI: 95%, 93-104) and 25 (CI: 95%, 22-28), respectively.

Rates of attack, incidence and recurrence decreased significantly between 1990 and 1999 in men aged 35 to 64 years, but not in women or in older men.
