Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. The 2013 Global Burden of Disease Study estimated that almost 30% of all deaths worldwide were caused by CVD. However, recent evidence from Europe suggests that in some countries cancer has overtaken CVD as the leading cause of death. Over the last decade, survival from myocardial infarction (MI) has improved in United Kingdom. The last decade has also seen changes in the number of prescriptions prescribed to treat various CVD conditions and the types of surgeries to treat MIs. In 2012, for the first time since the middle of the 20th century, CVD went from being the main cause of death to the second cause of death in the United Kingdom. Twenty-eight per cent of deaths were caused by CVD in 2012, and 29% were caused by cancer. When analysed by sex, however, CVD was still a larger cause of death than cancer for women, but this was no longer the case for men.
