Título Fifty-year follow-up of mortality among a cohort of iron-ore miners in Sweden, with specific reference to myocardial infarction mortality
Información bibliográfica Apr. 2009, Vol.66, No.4, p.264-268. 28 ref.
Resumen This cohort study investigated both general mortality and mortality from myocardial infarction among men employed in two iron-ore mines in Sweden. The cohort was comprised of men who had been employed for at least one year between 1923 and 1996. The causes of death were obtained from the national cause of death register from 1952 to 2001. Standardized mortality ratios (SMR) were calculated for four main causes, including myocardial infarction. SMR for total mortality was 1.05. Mortality was significantly higher for lung cancer, injuries, poisonings and respiratory diseases. The SMR for myocardial infarction was 1.12. Other findings are discussed.
