Prevalence, predisposing factors, and prognosis of...[J Am Coll Cardiol. 2000] - PubMed Result

Prevalence, predisposing factors, and prognosis of...[J Am Coll Cardiol. 2000] - PubMed Result: "CONCLUSIONS: 1) In the elderly, UMI continues to represent a significant proportion of all MIs; 2) associations with angina and CHF may reflect complex neurological issues, but they also may represent diagnosis bias; 3) these individuals can otherwise not be distinguished from those with recognized infarctions; and 4) mortality rates after UMI and RMI are similar. Future studies should address screening for UMI, risk stratification after detection of previously UMI, and the role of standard post-MI therapies."
