More survive heart attacks longer

Published onsdag 27 april 2011 kl 12.48
The proper treatment makes a great difference

New Swedish research reveals that when doctors follow guidelines for treating patients after a heart attack, more patients survive. Today heart attack victims live almost three years longer than they did 15 years ago.

The study by researchers at Stockholm’s Karolinska University Hospital, followed more than 60,000 heart attack patients here. They found that mortality rates both 30 days and one year after an attack have been cut in half. The biggest improvement has been among the oldest patients, those 74 years old and over.

The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
