    Abstract : This work focuses on economic evaluations of treatment and secondaryprevention in myocardial infarction. The purpose of the study was threefold: To present and discuss a robust method for economic evaluations of medical technologies based on individual clinical studies: to empirically apply the method to treatments and secondary prevention programs at the time of and after myocardial infarction in order thereby to increase knowledge about costs and cost effectiveness of myocardial infarction treatments: and to compare these results with those of other similar studies.

    Abstract : The treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has undergone a tremendous development during the last decades, and the most important factor is probably the introduction of reperfusion therapy aimed at preventing or limiting the myocardial injury.It is of vital importance that patients with AMI are adequately monitored regarding the development of ECG changes during and after treatment to identify successful or failed reperfusion and to detect episodes of recurrent ischemia.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Syftet med denna avhandling har varit att försöka avslöja omständigheter och faktorer som hänger samman med att kvinnor fortsätter respektive slutar att röka och att bidra med kunskaper om vilka rökare som är mest sårbara när det gäller risken för att drabbas av hjärtinfarkt. I den officiella sjuk- och dödsorsaksstatistiken framgår det att risken för hjärtinfarkt minskar bland män och kvinnor, både i Sverige och andra industriländer. READ MORE

    Abstract : The diagnostic and prognostic value of different noninvasive tests were evaluated in men below 70 years of age admitted to the coronary care unit (CCU) with unstable coronary artery disease (CAD) i.e unstableangina or non-Q-wave myocardial infarction (Ml). A symptom limited exercise test (ET) was performed before discharge in 740 patients. READ MORE
