Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of mortality in almost all European Union countries, accounting for 40% of all deaths in the region in 2008. They cover a range of diseases related to the circulatory system, including ischemic heart disease (known as IHD, or heart attack) and cerebro‐vascular disease (or stroke).
