Patient treated in hospital outpatient clinics (n = 228) and by general practitioners (n = 135) were analyzed. The beneficial changes among patients with established coronary heart disease such as the increase in the use of cardioprotective drugs and substantial improvement in the frequency of achievement of recommended total cholesterol level over the decade from 1997-1998 to 2006-2007 were observed.
