OBJECTIVE The published literature suggests differences in presenting symptoms for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), management, and outcomes according to gender and age. However, limited information exists on this topic among Hispanics. METHODS In Puerto Rican patients hospitalized with an initial AMI, we examined differences in presenting symptoms, effective cardiac therapies, and in-hospital mortality as a function of gender and age groups. We reviewed the medical records of patients… Expand
Epidemiological Profile of Hispanics Admitted With Acute Myocardial Infarction in Puerto Rico: The Experience of 2007, 2009 and 2011
Background A limited number of studies have been published about coronary artery disease in Hispanics, particularly among the Puerto Rican population. The aim of this study was to present a clinicalExpand
Significant disparities existed by gender in this sample of Hispanic AMI patients, with women showing higher in-hospital mortality compared to men. Expand
Are there gender differences in acute management and secondary prevention of acute coronary syndromes in Barbados? A cohort study
Although women were less likely to receive appropriate acute care than men, by discharge gender differences were reversed and the proportion of patients with documented recommended treatment is relatively low following acute MI in Barbados. Expand
Sex Differences in Symptom Presentation in Acute Coronary Syndromes: A Systematic Review and Meta‐analysis
Background Timely recognition of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is important for successful treatment. Previous research has suggested that women with ACS present with differentExpand
Incidence of acute myocardial infarction in Islamic Republic of Iran: a study using national registry data in 2012.
The cross-sectional study provides baseline data for monitoring and managing cardiovascular diseases in the country and shows that males comprised 72.4% of cases and had a significantly lower mean age at incidence than women. Expand

Gender based differences in symptoms of acute coronary syndrome.
There are gender based differences in the symptoms of ACS that may have a bearing on clinical practice, interpretation of available clinical studies and the design of future investigations. Expand
Temporal trends in cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction.
The findings indicate no significant change in the incidence of cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction over a 23-year period, but the short-term survival rate has increased in recent years at the same time as the use of coronary reperfusion strategies has increased. Expand
Women’s Early Warning Symptoms of Acute Myocardial Infarction
Most women have prodromal symptoms before acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and it remains unknown whether prodromeal symptoms are predictive of future events. Expand
Symptoms of men and women presenting with acute coronary syndromes.
Differences in occurrence of chest pain and left arm pain between men and women are explainable by differences in co-morbidities and history; the higher occurrence of diaphoresis in men and of nausea in women is partly related to maleness or femaleness. Expand
A Communitywide Perspective of Sex Differences and Temporal Trends in the Incidence and Survival Rates After Acute Myocardial Infarction and Out‐of‐Hospital Deaths Caused by Coronary Heart Disease
No significant sex differences in in-hospital survival were observed, whereas a poorer long-term survival experience after hospital discharge was observed for men compared with women after controlling for potentially confounding prognostic factors. Expand
Gender differences in the treatment and outcome of acute myocardial infarction. Results from the Myocardial Infarction Triage and Intervention Registry.
Despite high levels of risk factors and mortality, coronary angiography and angioplasty were used less often in women, although among those who underwent coronary Angiography, there were no gender differences in the use of angiopLasty or bypass surgery. Expand
Age-Related Increase in Mortality among Patients with First Myocardial Infarctions Treated with Thrombolysis
The in-hospital mortality rate was 1.9 percent among patients 40 years old or younger, but it increased to 31.9% among those more than 80 years old; however, values for indicators of infarct size did not increase with age. Expand
Acute myocardial infarction: sex-related differences in prognosis.
In 641 patients with acute myocardial infarction, a mortality of 16.63% was recorded among the former and one of 42.45% among the latter; the reasons for such severe prognosis in women require clarification. Expand
Contemporary trends in evidence-based treatment for acute myocardial infarction.
BACKGROUND Guidelines for the management of patients with acute myocardial infarction recommend the routine use of 4 effective cardiac medications: angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, aspirin,Expand
Treatment of acute myocardial infarction and 30-day mortality among women and men.
As compared with men, women receive somewhat less aggressive treatment during the early management of acute myocardial infarction, however, many of these differences are small, and there is no apparent effect on early mortality. Expand
