To examine the clinical outcome for patients with myocardial infarction and to analyze clinical predictors for long-term prognosis, 1,000 patients were studied retrospectively.
Between January 1983 and December 1987, 1,002 consecutive patients with myocardial infarction, who resided in the Kyoto and Shiga districts, were reviewed after coronary arteriography, but in two patients medical records were not located.
During 3.3+-2.0 years, 75 patients died of cardiac causes and 301 experienced cardiac events (death, reinfarction, and revascularization).
Overall 5-year cardiac mortality was 8% and cardiac eventrate was 35%.
