Acute myocardial infarction population incidence and in-hospital management factors associated to 28-day case-fatality in the 65 year and older.

Eur. J. Epidemiol. 2004 19 (3): 231-7, PMID: 15117116

The myocardial infarction (MI) incidence rate, prognosis and hospitalisation rate in the population 65 and over are rarely studied. We sought to determine MI hospitalisation and incidence rates, and 28-day case-fatality, in the 65 year and older population, and to analyse whether their management and prognosis differed from that of younger patients.
