The management of acute myocardial infarction in developing countries



The management of acute myocardial infarction in developing countries



International Journal of Cardiology 111(2): 189-194



Developing countries contribute a major share to the global burden of cardiovascular disease. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in particular remains one of the leading causes of death in the developing world as well as in the developed world. While the risk factors, management and outcome of AMI have been extensively studied in the developed world, limited data is available on this subject from developing countries. The current review looks at the prevalence of the classical coronary artery disease risk factors in developing countries and their association with myocardial infarction, as well as the management and outcome of AMI patients in these countries.
