The article presents a study which aims to assess the association of long term survival after first myocardial infarction discharge with socioeconomic environment in Malmö, Sweden between 1986-1995. The study shows the prevalence of major risk factors in areas with low rates of survival and low socioeconomic score. It reveals that 41% could be accounted for the survival rate after discharge differences of the intra-urban differences from ischaemic heart disease's mortality.
