To the Editor: Dr Jernberg and colleagues reported a sustained decrease in 30-day and 1-year ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) mortality from the Register of Information and Knowledge about Swedish Heart Intensive Care Admission (RIKS-HIA) between 1996 and 2007. They suggested the improvement was related to increased use of evidence-based treatments.1
