66). Conversely, in a community study of 3148 acute MI patients in Worcester, Massachusetts, in six time periods between 1975 and 1988, adjustment for age and other correlates had a different impact on the role of sex in prognosis after acute MI33. 7% in men. 16). 39) after multivariate adjustment. 27 why different populations appear to show differences in the effect of a previous MI on prognosis between men and women. THE DECLINING DEATH RATES FROM CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN MEN AND WOMEN The secular trends of CHD have been complex.

A 6-year follow-up of this cohort yielded 101 incidence cases of MI who were each matched with 3 controls for age and ethnic group. A detailed history of CHD among siblings was ascertained by interviewing the participants. 5) in both groups as was the birth order of cases and controls. 9 in siblings of controls. The rate for CHD before the age of 60 in siblings of cases was more than double that in siblings of controls. The excess risk for total mortality and for CHD was limited to brothers with no such effect on sisters.
