Table 4 Age- and sex-adjusted means and prevalences of sociodemographic variables and previous hospitalizations by the use of revascularization among patients admitted to Swedish hospitals for first-time acute myocardial infarction from 1993 to 1996, who survived the first 28 days after admission.

From: The association between socioeconomic position, use of revascularization procedures and five-year survival after recovery from acute myocardial infarction

  Revascularization No Revascularization
  (n = 1,371) (n = 45,036)
Age, years 63.8* 69.5
Male (%) 68.3* 64.8
Cancer (%) 6.4 6.8
Angina (%) 23.6* 14.7
Hypertension (%) 9.3* 7.6
Diabetes (%) 6.7 7.4
Stroke (%) 5.2* 6.9
Respiratory disease (%) 7.4 9.0
  1. * P-values are given for the difference in sociodemographic variables and previous hospitalizations between those with and those without a coronary revascularization; *p < 0.05.
