Sammendrag

The aim of the current study is to study national trends of AMI incidence and mortality in Norway during 2008–2019, with a special focus on trends in incidence and case fatality of STEMI and non-STEMI. Data will be obtained by merging data from the Norwegian Patient Registry, The Norwegian Cardiovascular Disease Registry (including the Norwegian Myocardial Infarction Registry) and the Norwegian Cause of Death Registry. We will calculate age-standardised rates and Joinpoint regression will be used to evaluate changes in trends. Recent studies indicate that the known mortality declines for AMI are levelling off in some countries, however it is not known whether this is associated with trends in incidence or case-fatality or both, and whether the trends are associated with time trends in STEMI, non-STEMI, and out-of hospital sudden deaths. The relative contribution of incidence and case-fatality to mortality rates have implications for allocation of resources and health policy.
