Influence of gender in acute and long-term cardiac mortality after a first myocardial infarction.
The effect of gender and other clinical variables on short-term and long-term cardiac mortality after a first transmural myocardial infarction (MI) was assessed in a population-based hospital register.
A cohort of 1216 consecutive patients (1023 men and 193 women), 25-74 years old admitted to the only reference hospital with a coronary care unit at Girona, Northeastern Spain, were recruited for 1978 to 1988 and followed-up for a mean period of almost 5 years (3-12 years).
Compared with men, women had a relative risk (RR) of 1.56 (95% con6dence interval (CI) of 0.99-2.48) of dying in the acute phase of MI after adjusting for age, MI location, presence of severe arrhythmias, diabetes and hypertension.
