This study was conducted to evaluate the epidemiology of myocardial infarction by age، sex، type of infarction، risk factors، and early mortality in patients with Acute MI in Seyed al-Shohada hospital in Urmia.

These patients were hospitalized with the above diagnosis; and during their hospitalization، the incidence of myocardial infarction، increased cardiac enzymes CK-MB and Troponin were considered. Then the required data were extracted from their files and were evaluated by descriptive statistics (frequency).

Results

The results showed that acute myocardial infarction in females (33. 72%) and smokers (64. 1%) were more prevalent. After that hypertension (63%) was prevalent. Also، infarction of lower area of the heart (Inferior) was more common (45. 5%). And the mortality rate in the hospital was 7. 1%.
