Deaths from heart disease in Wales have halved over the past 30 years, according to new figures from the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
But the charity is warning that the drop should not mask the burden heart failure continues to place on Wales.
BHF figures show around 4,300 people now die from coronary heart disease in Wales each year, compared to over 9,600 who died from the disease in 1981.
The charity is launching a new campaign to support its Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, funding regenerative medicine research that could cure the condition.
