Abstract
Studies on long-term mortality after venous thromboembolism (VTE) are sparse.
Using Danish medical databases, we conducted a 30-year nationwide population-based cohort study of 128 223 patients with first-time VTE (1980-2011) and a comparison cohort of 640 760 people from the general population (without VTE) randomly matched by sex, year of birth, and calendar period. The mortality risks for patients with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) were markedly higher than for the comparison cohort during the first year, especially within the first 30 days (3.0% and 31% versus 0.4%). Using Cox regression, we assessed mortality rate ratios (MRRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The overall 30-year MRR was 1.55 (95% CI, 1.53-1.57) for DVT and 2.77 (95% CI, 2.74-2.81) for PE. The 30-day MRR was 5.38 (95% CI, 5.00-5.80) for DVT and 80.87 (95% CI, 76.02-86.02) for PE. Over time, the 30-day MRR was consistently 5- to 6-fold increased for DVT, whereas it improved for PE from 138 (95% CI, 125-153) in 1980 to 1989 to 36.08 (95% CI, 32.65-39.87) in 2000 to 2011. The 1- to 10-year and 11- to 30-year MRRs remained 25% to 40% increased after both DVT and PE but were 3- to 5-fold increased after DVT and 6- to 11-fold increased after PE when VTE was considered the immediate cause of death.
Patients with VTE are at increased risk of dying, especially within the first year after diagnosis, but also during the entire 30 years of follow-up, with VTE as an important cause of death. Although 30-day mortality after DVT remained fairly constant over the last 3 decades, it improved markedly for PE.

Abstract
Patients = 80 years old with coronary artery disease constitute a particular risk group in relation to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). From 2002 through 2008 we examined the annual proportion of patients = 80 years old undergoing PCI in western Denmark, their indications for PCI, and prognosis. From 2002 through 2009 all elderly patients treated with PCI were identified in a population of 3.0 million based on the Western Denmark Heart Registry. Cox regression analysis was used to compare mortality rates according to clinical indications controlling for potential confounding. In total 3,792 elderly patients (= 80 years old) were treated with PCI and the annual proportion increased from 224 (5.4%) in 2002 to 588 (10.2%) in 2009. The clinical indication was stable angina pectoris (SAP) in 30.2%, ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in 35.0%, UAP/non-STEMI in 29.7%, and "ventricular arrhythmia or congestive heart failure" in 5.1%. Overall 30-day and 1-year mortality rates were 9.2% and 18.1%, respectively. Compared to patients with SAP the adjusted 1-year mortality risk was significantly higher for patients presenting with STEMI (hazard ratio 3.86, 95% confidence interval 3.08 to 4.85), UAP/non-STEMI (hazard ratio 1.95, 95% confidence interval 1.53 to 2.50), and ventricular arrhythmia or congestive heart failure (hazard ratio 2.75, 95% confidence interval 1.92 to 3.92). In patients with SAP target vessel revascularization decreased from 7.1% in 2002 to 2.5% in 2008. In conclusion, the proportion of patients = 80 years old treated with PCI increased significantly over an 8-year period. Patients with SAP had the lowest mortality rates and rates of clinically driven target vessel revascularization decreased over time.

Abstract
• The CYP3A4 inhibition by lipophilic statins may attenuate the effectiveness of clopidogrel. • No studies have measured drug exposure in a time-varying manner that detects discontinuation and restart of clopidogrel and statin therapy, allowing clinical quantification of the interaction effect.
• Clopidogrel and CYP3A4-metabolizing statin use were each associated with a substantially reduced rate of major adverse cardiovascular events within 12 months after coronary stent implantation. • Although we observed an interaction between use of clopidogrel and statins, statin use vs. non-use was not associated with an increased rate of major adverse cardiovascular events in patients using clopidogrel after coronary stent implantation.
To examine whether CYP3A4-metabolizing statin use modified the association between clopidogrel use and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) after coronary stent implantation, using time-varying drug exposure ascertainment.
We conducted this population-based cohort study in Western Denmark (population: 3 million) using medical databases. We identified all 13 001 patients with coronary stent implantation between 2002 and 2005 and their comorbidities. During 12 months of follow-up, we tracked the use of clopidogrel and CYP3A4-metabolizing statins and the rate of MACE. We used Cox regression to compute hazard ratios (HRs) controlling for potential confounders.
The rate of MACE per 1000 person years was 104 for concomitant clopidogrel and statin use, 130 for clopidogrel without statin use, 108 for statin without clopidogrel use and 446 for no use of either drug. The adjusted HR comparing clopidogrel use with non-use was 0.68 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.58, 0.79) among statin users and 0.34 (95% CI 0.29, 0.40) among statin non-users, yielding an interaction effect (i.e. relative rate increase) of 1.97 (95% CI 1.59, 2.44). The adjusted HR for MACE comparing statin use with non-use was 0.97 (95% CI 0.83, 1.13) among clopidogrel users and 0.49 (95% CI 0.42, 0.57) among clopidogrel non-users.
Clopidogrel and CYP3A4-metabolizing statin use were each associated with a substantially reduced rate of MACE within 12 months after coronary stent implantation. Although we observed an interaction between use of clopidogrel and statins, statin use vs. non-use was not associated with an increased rate of MACE in patients using clopidogrel after coronary stent implantation.

Abstract
In patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), timely reperfusion with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) is the preferred treatment. However, it remains unclear whether the optimal strategy is complete revascularisation or culprit vessel PPCI only.
From January 2002 to June 2009 all patients treated with PPCI were identified from the Western Denmark Heart Registry. We examined mortality according to timing of multivessel PCI: acute procedure, staged procedure during the index hospitalisation, or staged procedure performed within 60 days. The hazard ratio (HR) for death was estimated using a time-dependent Cox regression model, with time of PCI for the non-culprit lesion as the time-dependent variable. The study cohort consisted of 5,944 patients, of whom 4,770 (80%) had single-vessel disease and 1,174 (20%) had multivessel PCI within 60 days. Among 354 (30.2%) patients with acute multivessel PCI, 194 (16.5%) patients with multivessel PCI during the index hospitalisation, and 626 (53.3%) patients with multivessel PCI within 60 days after the index hospitalisation, the adjusted HRs for one-year mortality were 1.53 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.07-2.18), 0.60 (95% CI: 0.28-1.26), and 0.28 (95% CI: 0.14-0.54), respectively, compared to patients with single vessel disease.
Acute multivessel PCI in patients with STEMI was associated with increased mortality.

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: To analyse the incidence, prevalence, and predictors for development of triple-class antiretroviral drug failure (TCF) in individuals infected with HIV. DESIGN: Population-based observational cohort study from 1 January 1995 to 31 December 2003, focusing on all 2722 recipients of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in Denmark. METHODS: We used person-years analysis, Kaplan-Meier survival curves and Cox regression analysis. TCF was defined as a minimum of 120 days with viral load > 1000 copies/ml on treatment with each of the three major drug classes. RESULTS: We observed 177 TCFs, yielding a crude incidence rate (IR) of 1.8 per 100 person-years [95% confidence interval (CI), 1.6-2.1]. Seven years after initiation of HAART, 17.2% (95% CI, 14.5-20.5) of antiretroviral (ART)-experienced patients, but only 7.0% (95% CI, 4.3-11.2) of ART-naive patients were estimated to have failed. After an initial rise, the IR from the third to the sixth year of HAART declined significantly for ART-experienced patients [incidence rate ratio (IRR), 0.80 per year (95% CI, 0.66-0.97); P = 0.022], and non-significantly for ART-naive patients [IRR, 0.79 per year (95% CI, 0.53-1.18); P = 0.255]. The IR for all patients being followed each year declined from 1997 to 2003 [IRR, 0.88 (95% CI, 0.81-0.96); P = 0.002]. The prevalence of TCF remained stable at less than 7% after 2000. Predictors of TCF at commencement of HAART were a CD4 cell count below 200, a previous AIDS-defining event, previous antiretroviral exposure, earlier year of HAART initiation, and young age. CONCLUSIONS: The risk of TCF is declining in Denmark and the prevalence remains stable.

Abstract
To examine the association between exacerbation frequency and mortality following an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD).
Cohort study using medical databases.
Northern Denmark.
On 1 January 2005, we identified all patients with prevalent hospital-diagnosed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who had at least one AECOPD during 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2009. We followed patients from the first AECOPD during this period until death, emigration or 31 December 2009, whichever came first. We flagged all AECOPD events during follow-up and characterised each by the exacerbation frequency (0, 1, 2 or 3+) in the prior 12-month period.
Using Cox regression, we computed 0-30-day and 31-365-day age-adjusted, sex-adjusted, and comorbidity-adjusted mortality rate ratios (MRRs) with 95% CIs entering exacerbation frequency as a time-varying exposure.
We identified 16,647 eligible patients with prevalent COPD, of whom 6664 (40%) developed an AECOPD and were thus included in the study cohort. The 0-30-day MRRs were 0.97 (95% CI 0.80 to 1.18), 0.90 (95% CI 0.70 to 1.15) and 1.03 (95% CI 0.81 to 1.32) among patients with AECOPD with 1, 2 and 3+ AECOPDs versus no AECOPD within the past 12 months, respectively. The corresponding MRRs were 1.47 (95% CI 1.30 to 1.66), 1.89 (95% CI 1.59 to 2.25) and 1.59 (95% CI 1.23 to 2.05) for days 31-365.
Among patients with AECOPD, one or more exacerbations in the previous year were not associated with 30-day mortality but were associated with an increased 31-365-day mortality.

Abstract
HIV-infected persons are at increased risk of pneumonia, even with highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART). We examined the impact of pneumonia on mortality and identified prognostic factors for death among HIV-infected.
In a nationwide, population-based cohort of individuals with HIV, we included persons hospitalized with pneumonia from the Danish National Hospital Registry and obtained mortality data from the Danish Civil Registration System. Comparing individuals with and without pneumonia, we used Poisson regression to estimate relative mortality and logistic regression to examine prognostic factors for death following pneumonia. From January 1, 1995, to July 1, 2008, we observed 699 episodes of first hospitalization for pneumonia among 4,352 HIV patients. Ninety-day mortality after pneumonia decreased from 22.4% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 16.5%-28.9%) in 1995-1996 to 8.4% (95% CI: 6.1%-11.6%) in 2000-2008. Mortality remained elevated for more than a year after hospitalization for pneumonia: adjusted mortality rate ratio 5.38 (95% CI: 4.27-6.78), 1.80 (95% CI: 1.36-2.37), and 1.62 (95% CI: 1.32-2.00) for days 0-90, 91-365, and 366+, respectively. The following variables predicted mortality within 90 days following hospitalization for pneumonia (adjusted Odds Ratios): male sex (3.77, 95% CI: 1.37-10.4), Charlson Comorbidity Index score > or = 2 (3.86, 95% CI: 2.19-6.78); no current HAART (3.58, 95% CI: 1.83-6.99); history of AIDS (2.46, 95% CI: 1.40-4.32); age per 10 year increase (1.43, 95% CI: 1.11-1.85); and CD4+ cell count

Abstract
Low socioeconomic status is a risk factor for liver cirrhosis, but it is unknown whether it is a prognostic factor after cirrhosis diagnosis. We examined whether marital status, employment, and personal income were associated with the survival of cirrhosis patients.
Using registry-data we conducted a population-based cohort study of 1,765 Danish cirrhosis patients diagnosed in 1999-2001 at age 45-59 years. Follow-up ended on 31 December 2003. With Cox regression we examined the associations between marital status (never married, divorced, married), employment (employed, disability pensioner, unemployed), personal income (0-49, 50-99, 100+ percent of the national average) and survival, controlling for gender, age, cirrhosis severity, comorbidity, and substance abuse.
Five-year survival was higher for married patients (48%) than for patients who never married (40%) or were divorced (34%), but after adjustment only divorced patients had poorer survival than married patients (adjusted hazard ratio for divorced vs. married = 1.22, 95% CI 1.04-1.42). Five-year survival was lower for disability pensioners (31%) than for employed (46%) or unemployed patients (48%), also after adjustment (adjusted hazard ratio for disability pensioners vs. employed = 1.35, 95% CI 1.09-1.66). Personal income was not associated with survival.
Marital status and employment were associated with the survival of cirrhosis patients. Specifically, divorced cirrhosis patients and cirrhosis patients who never married had a poorer survival than did married cirrhosis patients, and cirrhosis patients who were disability pensioners had a poorer survival than did employed or unemployed cirrhosis patients. The poorer survival for the divorced and for the disability pensioners could not be explained by differences in other socioeconomic factors, gender, age, cirrhosis severity, substance abuse, or comorbidity. Personal income was not associated with survival.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have shown that patients with liver cirrhosis are at increased risk of death after a number of surgical procedures, but their risk of death after nephrectomy has not been examined. We compared the 30-day postoperative case fatality rate after nephrectomy in patients with liver cirrhosis with that of patients without liver cirrhosis using data from an established dataset. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between 1 January, 1977 and 31 December, 1993 we followed a population-based cohort of Danish liver cirrhosis patients in order to identify those who underwent nephrectomy. A control group of patients without liver cirrhosis who underwent nephrectomy during the same period was also identified. A logistic regression model was used to estimate the odds ratio of the 30-day case fatality rate of patients with liver cirrhosis relative to those without liver cirrhosis. The model was adjusted for age, sex, comorbidity and type of admission. The study was based entirely on data from the Danish National Registry of Patients. RESULTS: A total of 29/23 133 patients with liver cirrhosis underwent nephrectomy, and the control group comprised 582 patients without liver cirrhosis. The 30-day case fatality rates were 24.1% and 8.1%, respectively, yielding an adjusted odds ratio of 3.6 (95% CI 1.2-8.9) for patients with liver cirrhosis relative to those without liver cirrhosis. Male gender, high comorbidity and emergency admission were also associated with an increased risk of postoperative death. CONCLUSIONS: Nephrectomy in patients with liver cirrhosis carries an increased risk of postoperative death, but the lack of clinical data prevents us from suggesting guidelines for clinical management.
