Improvement in Survival After Myocardial Infarction Between 1978-85 and 1986-88 in The REGICOR Study - REGICOR


The REGICOR study was a registry of patients age 25 to 74 years admitted to a coronary care unit (CCU) in Girona, Spain with first transmural myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of the present study was to assess differences in 28-day case-fatality and three-year mortality in patients from two time periods: 1978-85 and 1986-88. Multiple other papers have been published using the REGICOR dataset including analyses of cardiac risk factors and genetic associations.
