The Western Norway Cardiovascular Registry (WENOCARD)
HKS-registeret, Helseregion Vest (In Norwegian)

This project started in 1998 and contains data on patients with cardiovascular diseases or diabetes mellitus admitted to hospitals in Western Norway (Rogaland, Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane) during 1972-2006. The hospital data were supplemented with data from the national cause of death register

The data in WENOCARD is equivalent as the data later collected in CVDNOR project. However the latter covers the period 1994-2009

You can read the WENOCARD report here (in Norwegian only).
