Long-term prognosis of a first myocardial infarction and factors associated with late cardiac mortality and reinfarction were studied in 718 survivors.
Patients have been followed up for 1-10 years (mean 57.6+-39.6 months).
None of the patients underwent coronary bypass surgery in the follow-up period.
Cumulative mortality rates were 8.6 ; in the first year, 17.9% in 3 years, 26.4% in 5 years and 36.5% in 10 years.
The type and site of myocardial infarction (Q-wave versus non-Q-wave and anterior versus infero-posterior) were found to have no independent prognostic importance.
The cardiac mortality was best predicted by the occurrence of congestive heart failure in the coronary care unit.
