Abstract
A review was done on 631 patients with acute myocardial infarction who underwent coronary angiography within 30 days after onset of myocardial infarction at Yonsei University Severance Hospital from January, 1985, to August, 1993. The incidence of acute myocardial infarction in patients under 40 years of age was 10.3% (65/631). Acute myocardial infarction below the fourth decades was the predominant disease of men. Risk factor analysis revealed a history of cigarette smoking and hypercholesterolemia were more frequently found in the young patients, but a history of hypertension and diabetes were more frequently found in the elderly patients. Angiographically, the incidence of one vessel disease and normal or minimal lesion coronary anatomy were more frequent in the young patients and incidence of multi-vessel disease were more frequent in the elderly patients. Of the 65 patients under 40 with acute myocardial infarction, the patients with multi-vessel disease tended to have a history of diabetes mellitus in comparison with those with normal coronary anatomy or one vessel disease.
