Data of the morbidity and mortality index of the acute coronary heart disease in the South Trans-Danubian Region between 1999 and 2002. South Trans-Danubian Regional Acute Coronary Registry. Based on GYOGYINFOK database, the authors' purpose was to monitor the morbidity and mortality of acute coronary heart diseases (acute coronary syndrome, acute myocardial infarction) in the approximately one million people inhabiting the South Trans Danubian Region. Data were obtained using the financing data sheets reported to GYOGYINFOK by 15 in-patient health care institutions located in the region. The regional data were compared nation-wide ones as well. The observed diagnoses correspond to diseases the codes of which range from I 20.00 to I 22.90, according to BNO classification. The data of years 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 have already been processed and categorized by gender and age-groups. Hospital mortality, therapeutical procedures (thrombolysis, GP IIb/IIIa receptor blocker) as well as the parameters of progressive care have all been evaluated. Of the processed 4 years, the data of 8431 patients are already recorded in the registry. The rate of the thrombolytic therapy reached patients was decreased from 26.01% (which was detailed in 1999) to 7.39% into 2002 in our region, but the rate was nearly constant 16.1% in 1999 and 13.28% in 2002 in the country. The rate of the GP IIb/IIIa therapy reached patients was increased from 2.15% to 6.66% in our region, while it was increased from 0.66% to 3.96% between 2000 and 2002 in the country. Mortality in the hospitals decreased in the case of male from 14.44% to 8.7% in the region, and from 20.28% to 16.18% in the female. At the same time the hospital mortality was constant in the country, in males it was 14.39% in 1999, and 13.11% in 2002, and in females it was 20.00% in 1999, and 18.81 in 2002. As regards the therapeutical procedures--based on the data processed up to the present--it can be observed that classic thrombolytic therapy becomes de-emphasized while treatments with GP IIb/IIIa receptor blockers as well as the intervention coupled to these gain ground. The authors consider the creation of this registry a very important beginning step in building the cardiological map of the region.
