Smoking and myocardial infarction case-fatality: hospital and population approach.

Eur J Cardiovasc Prev Rehabil. 2007 Aug;14(4):561-7, PMID: 17667648

Smoking is a risk factor for coronary heart disease, but it has been associated with better short-term prognosis in hospitalized patients with acute myocardial infarction. The aims of this study were to determine the association between smoking and myocardial infarction 28-day case-fatality in hospitalized patients and at the population level; and, whether smokers presenting with fatal myocardial infarction are more likely to die before reaching a hospital.
