About Johanna Berg
The primary aim of my thesis was to investigate recent data regarding sex differences in symptoms, mortality and case fatality in coronary heart disease (CHD), with the ultimate aim to increase knowledge about women and cardiovascular disease in order to improve the organisation of health care and prevention. Medical charts were used to study symptoms among patients in the population-based INTERGENE-study. The Swedish person-based national registers facilitate studies of trends over long periods. Data was collected from the Swedish National Cause of Death and Hospital Discharge registers. Analyses were performed in SAS, SPSS and Joinpoint.
