PURPOSE To analyse and compare refill adherence to statins estimated with two different methods with a focus on sensitivity to definitions. METHODS Individuals aged 18-85 years who filled a statin prescription for the first time in 1.5 years during 1 January-30 June 2007 were followed until emigration or death or until 2 years after their first statin(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate the 4-year mortality risk among patients<55 years with a first ischemic stroke during 1987-2006. METHODS A total of 17,149 cases (37.4% women) aged 18 to 54 years who survived≥28 days after a first ischemic stroke were identified in the Swedish Inpatient Register from 1987 to 2006.(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies on stroke recurrence in younger adults often contain small sample size which makes it difficult to study trends in stroke recurrence over a long period of time. AIMS The aim of the present study was to investigate temporal trends in the risk of recurrence in younger patients with a first ischemic stroke. METHODS All men and(More)
BACKGROUND A health survey was performed in 2007-2008 in the IDEFICS/Sweden study (Identification and prevention of dietary- and lifestyle-induced health effects in children and infants) in children aged 2-9 years. We hypothesized that families with disadvantageous socioeconomic and -demographic backgrounds and children with overweight and obesity were(More)
AIMS To determine the prevalence of non-prescribed drug use among subjects suspected of drug-impaired driving with a psychoactive prescription drug, and to identify associated factors. METHODS Subjects investigated for drug-impaired driving in Sweden during 2006-2009 with a confirmed intake of diazepam, flunitrazepam, tramadol, zolpidem or zopiclone were(More)
BACKGROUND Nephrolithiasis (NL) is known to be associated with gout, although there are few comparative studies on risk and risk factors for NL in gout compared to population cohorts. In this cohort study we investigated: (1) overall incidence of NL in gout (cases) and general population controls; (2) risk and risk factors (common comorbidities and(More)
BACKGROUND Heart failure (HF) in late pregnancy and postpartum (HFPP), of which peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) constitutes the larger part, is still a rare occurrence in Sweden. Population-based data are scarce. Our aim was to characterize HFPP and determine the incidence and mortality in a Swedish cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS Through merging data from(More)
BACKGROUND Updated knowledge about survival after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is needed. We examined 20-year trends in 4-year survival after a first isolated CABG procedure, compared with that of the general population. METHODS We identified 94,328 patients surviving 30days after a first isolated CABG 1987-2006 from the Swedish Inpatient(More)
