    • Of a total of 2,070 AMI patients, 629 were women and 1,441, men ;

    • No direct study interventions ;

    • results of practice patterns and risk analyses of the earlier (1987-90) AMI cohorts, however, were published concurrently with the actual practices of the more recent (1991-92) cohorts and may have had some indirect effect on the recent practice patterns.
