Socioeconomic status and risk of acute myocardial infarction. Population-based case-control study.

Socioeconomic status and risk of acute myocardial infarction. Population-based case-control study.

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Socioeconomic status is associated with cardiovascular mortality. The aims of this study were to investigate the association between socioeconomic status and its various indicators and the risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and to determine whether any association found is independent of the presence of cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs). METHODS: Study cases were matched with controls by age, sex and year of recruitment. Cases were recruited from a hospital register and controls from cross-sectional studies of the general population.

Measuring the payback of research activities: a feasible ex-post evaluation methodology in epidemiology and public health.

Measuring the payback of research activities: a feasible ex-post evaluation methodology in epidemiology and public health.

Most ex-post evaluations of research funding programs are based on bibliometric methods and, although this approach has been widely used, it only examines one facet of the project's impact, that is, scientific productivity. More comprehensive models of payback assessment of research activities are designed for large-scale projects with extensive funding.

Effect of opening a new catheterization laboratory on 30-day and 2-year survival rates in myocardial infarction patients.

Effect of opening a new catheterization laboratory on 30-day and 2-year survival rates in myocardial infarction patients.

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of opening an on-site diagnostic catheterization facility on 30-day and 2-year mortality rates in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS: The study included 1539 consecutive MI patients aged 25-74 years who were recruited before and after the catheterization laboratory opened in 1998: during 1995-1997 and 1999-2003, respectively. RESULTS: The 641 consecutive MI patients recruited in 1995-1997 had worse 30-day mortality than the 898 recruited between 1999-2003 (11.2% versus 6.35%, respectively; P=.001).
