Contemporary data on trends of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), particularly outcomes of hospital survivors by AMI type is sparse.
Analysis of 11,107 consecutive AMI patients in a tertiary hospital in Israel throughout 2002-2012. The annual incidence of ST-segment elevation (STEMI) and non-ST-segment elevation (NSTEMI) admissions was calculated using age-gender-ethnicity direct adjustment. A multivariate prognostic model was built to evaluate in-hospital and 1-year post-discharge all-cause-mortality, adjusted for patients' risk factors.
A decline in the adjusted incidence of AMI admissions (per-1000 persons) was documented (2002 vs. 2012) for STEMI: 4.70 vs. 1.38 (p
