Clinical profile of acute myocardial infarction in young adults

Education of patients about smoking cessation, control of diabetes, and also education about modification of other risk factors of young MI can serve as primary prevention for the disease.


It is shown that young (age <35 years) patients who have sustained acute myocardial infarction, have less extensive coronary artery disease but complex morphologic features.

Demographics and Angiographic Findings in Patients under 35 Years of Age with Acute ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction

In the young adults with STEMI, male gender, smoking, family history, and high triglyceride level were more often observed; in contrast to their older counterparts, in whom CABG was more commonly chosen for revascularization.

Clinical and Angiographic profile of Premature Coronary Heart Disease.

Male sex, dyslipidemia and smoking are the most important risk factors for premature coronary artery disease, irrespective of sex, income and rural or urban origin in young patients.

Comparison of coronary risk factors and angiographic findings in younger and older patients with significant coronary artery disease

The risk profile and angiographic findings are different in young patients with CAD compared to older patients, and young Patients with CAD tend to be male with a positive familial history, but with less diabetes or hypertension.

Study of lipid profile in young patients (age 40 years or below) with acute coronary syndrome

Dyslipidemia do not play any significant role in influencing extent of CAD and has little effect on outcome whether during acute stage or on immediate follow-up after ACS, which suggests that ACS in younger population has lesser complications during presentation, hospital stay and on follow- up.

Comparison of coronary angiography characteristics among acute coronary syndrome patients in young and old age patients at Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital Jakarta.

The number of coronary artery diseases (vessel score) and stenosis score is lower in patients aged 45 years compared to patients aged >45 years.

Angiographic profile of young patients (≤ 40 years) in a tertiary care center of Nepal

Single vessel disease (SVD) was most prevalent in young patients with significant CAD, and left anterior descending (LAD) artery was found to be most frequently involved in all patterns of Coronary artery disease (CAD).



Acute myocardial infarction in young Japanese adults.

It is suggested that young AMI patients have different clinical characteristics from those in non-young AMI Patients in Japan, and acute results of primary PCI and in-hospital prognosis in young AMi patients are comparable to those inNon-young AmI patients in Japan.

Clinical manifestations and outcome of acute myocardial infarction in very young patients.

AMI is rare in very young patients, and more than half NCA, and a thrombophilic tendency or spasm should be considered.

[Risk factors and coronary angiographic findings in young and elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction: a comparative analysis].

Smoking, metabolic disorders and positive family history are the major risk factors for AMI among individuals below the age of forty, who often have milder coronary artery stenosis than elderly patients.

Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of juvenile myocardial infarction in Italy: the GISSI experience.

The incidence and mortality of AMI at a young age was steady during the period between 1988 and 1993 and in young patients, the rate of complications is lower in younger as opposed to older patients for both early and late heart failure.

Acute Myocardial Infarction in Young Japanese Adults : Clinical Manifestations and In-Hospital Outcome

Coronary angiography performed in young patients with a history of myocardial infarction has identified a relatively high incidence of normal coronary arteries, non-obstructive stenosis or single-vessel disease.

Myocardial infarction in the young. Angiographic features and risk factor analysis of patients with myocardial infarction at or before the age of 35 years.

Of 19 patients in group 1 who underwent cardiac catheterization for prognosis despite being asymptomatic and able to reach at least stage 4 on a Bruce protocol exercise test, none was found to have residual surgically correctable disease.

ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction in a Teenager: Case Report and Review of the Literature

A 19-year-old woman with chest pain and ST elevation on electrocardiogram who was initially suspected to have pericarditis is described, which later led to the diagnosis of myocardial infarction.

Myocardial infarction in young patients: an analysis by age subsets.

Young patients entering the hospital have an excellent 1 year prognosis, but those with prior infarction in whom there are selected abnormal findings at hospital discharge comprise a subgroup that may benefit from early aggressive management.

[Epidemiologic features of myocardial infarction in young patients].

The clinical features in young patients presenting with AMI are determined and in hospital complications are the same as in the older adult but the prognosis seems to be better.
