  author={Adam Hartley and Dominic C. Marshall and Justin D. Salciccioli and Markus B. Sikkel and Mahiben Maruthappu and Joseph Shalhoub},
Background— Trends in cardiovascular mortality across Europe demonstrate significant geographical variation, and an understanding of these trends has a central role in global public health. Methods and Results— Ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease age-standardized death rates (as per International Classification of Diseases, ninth and tenth revisions) were collated from the World Health Organization mortality database for member states of the European Union. Trends were… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Trends in Mortality From Aortic Stenosis in Europe: 2000–2017
Mortality from aortic stenosis has increased across Europe from 2000 to 2017, with greater mortality for males than females across most countries, and sizable differences in mortality trends between Eastern and Western European countries.
Trends in mortality from pneumonia in the Europe union: a temporal analysis of the European detailed mortality database between 2001 and 2014
Mortality from pneumonia is improving in most EU countries, however substantial variation in trends remains between countries and between genders, as well as in gender mortality differences.
Sex differences in coronary heart disease and stroke mortality: a global assessment of the effect of ageing between 1980 and 2010
While CHD and stroke mortality rates declined considerably between 1980 and 2010 in both sexes, there was some indication for stronger age-specific reductions in CHD in men than women.
Trends in premature mortality rates among the Polish population due to cardiovascular diseases.
In 2008-2017, Poland experienced a decline in premature mortality due to tobacco-related cardiovascular diseases, particularly in the age group of 40-44 years, which may have been associated with a reduction in exposure to tobacco smoke, one of the cardiovascular risk factors.
Lung cancer mortality in Europe and the USA between 2000 and 2017: an observational analysis
There is a persistent but decreasing sex-mortality gap, with men having persistently greater lung cancer mortality but with rates decreasing faster than women, according to the World Health Organization Mortality and CDC WONDER databases.
Temporal trends in heart failure mortality in an integrated healthcare delivery system, California, and the US, 2001–2017
Lower rates of HF mortality were observed in KPSC compared to the US, given the aging of the US population and increasing prevalence of HF, it will be important to examine individual and care-related factors driving susceptibility to HF mortality.
Prevalence of ideal cardiovascular health in a Central European community: results from the Kardiovize Brno 2030 Project
The Kardiovize Brno 2030 project is an ongoing prospective cohort study assessing the prevalence, determinants, outcomes and trends of CVD in the city of Brno in the Czech Republic, and categorised CVH as ideal (five or more metrics), intermediate (three to four metrics) and poor CVH (two or fewer metrics).


Trends in mortality from coronary heart and cerebrovascular diseases in the Americas: 1970–2000
Recent falls in CHD and CVA were less favourable in Latin America than in the USA and Canada,Together with less effective control of hypertension and management of the diseases, this may reflect unfavourable changes in nutrition, physical activity, and smoking.

  • 2009
Although mortality from CHD and CVD continues to decline in several areas of the world including most countries of Europe and of the America providing data and Australia, unfavourable trends were still observed in the Russian Federation and other countries of the former Soviet Union, whose recent rates remain exceedingly high.
The burden of cardiovascular diseases mortality in Europe. Task Force of the European Society of Cardiology on Cardiovascular Mortality and Morbidity Statistics in Europe.
This report reviews total cardiovascular, ischaemic heart disease, cerebrovascular and all causes mortality in European countries for the years 1990–1992 and examines country mortality trends for the period 1970 to 1992.
Cardiovascular disease in Europe 2014: epidemiological update.
This paper was based on the European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics 2012 report, the fourth in a series of Europe-wide compendia that aimed to bring together the most up-to-date statistics available on a range of issues related to CVD.
Awareness and control of hypertension in Austria

  • 2004
The 20-year study of trends in Austrian awareness of blood pressure issues carried out by the Institute of Social Medicine highlighted some important issues relating to blood pressure awareness, which could also be valid for other Western countries.
East-West mortality divide and its potential explanations: proposed research agenda.
Determinants of the mortality gap between eastern and western Europe are probably related to the contrast in their social environments and may be similar to those underlying the social gradients in mortality within countries.
Health Factors and Risk of All-Cause, Cardiovascular, and Coronary Heart Disease Mortality: Findings from the MONICA and HAPIEE Studies in Lithuania
An inverse association of most healthy levels of cardiovascular risk factors with risk of all-cause and CVD mortality was observed in this urban population-based cohort of Lithuanian urban population.
Socioeconomic Status and Coronary Heart Disease Risk Factor Trends The Minnesota Heart Survey
Improvement in CHD risk factors over time unrelated to education or income suggests that population-wide factors such as improved health knowledge, availability of healthy food items, hypertension treatment, and restrictions on cigarette smoking are operating beneficially in all SES groups.
