    Article - En anglais

    Background and purpose

    Stroke complicating acute myocardial infarction is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality.

    The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence, predictors, and impact on mortality of stroke/transient ischemic attacks occurring after hospital discharge in a large unselected population of acute myocardial infarction survivors.


    During a secondary prevention study with nifedipine (SPRINT), demographic, anamnestic, and clinical data were collected for 5839 consecutive acute myocardial infarction patients admitted to 13 coronary care units in Israel.

    Hospital survivors (n=4808) were followed for a year after their discharge.

    Mortality was assessed for a mean follow-up of 5.5 years.

    (range, 4.5 to 7 years).
