Abstract: Objective -To assess the association between cardiovascular risk factors and acute myocardial infarction as the first manifestation of ischemic heart disease, correlating them with coronary angiographic findings. Methods - (RR=0.19; P=0.04) and left ventricular hypertrophy (RR=0.27; 95% CI=0, P=0.03). The remaining risk factors were not statistically significant. Conclusion -Prevalence of acute myocardial infarction as the first manifestation of ischemic

“…CHD continues to be one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality among women as well as men in many countries [1,5]. CHD is much less frequent in premenopausal women than in age-matched men [12].…”

“…Hypertensive individuals more frequently have symptoms preceding acute MI, probably due to ventricular hypertrophy associated with high blood pressure [5]. Women with acute ischaemic syndromes have higher rates of associated diabetes and hypertension because the protective effects of the premenopausal state can probably be overcome by these 2 potent causes of atherosclerosis [13].…”

“…ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE is the leading cause of death in both males and females in the industrialized world, with myocardial infarction being the most common manifestation of ischemic heart disease (18). Among humans, premenopausal women have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease than age-matched men, and there is growing evidence that there is a sex-specific difference in the susceptibility of the myocardium to infarction after ischemia in dogs (15), rats (1,4), mice (10,11), as well as in humans (19).…”

“…Hypertension is known to cause ventricular hypertrophy that probably lead to earlier symptoms of MI and also forces patients to seek care, hence being recorded more frequently in patients admitted with MI. [25] A recent study suggested that smoking is an important contributor to MI under the age of 36 Years. [24] Smoking increases the initial and subsequent risk MI and death.…”
