Prognosis in diabetics in whom the initial suspicion of acute myocardial infarction was not confirmed
[external].
1993 (English)In: Clinical Cardiology, ISSN 0160-9289, E-ISSN 1932-8737, Vol. 16, no 7, 559-564 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

For 2,058 consecutive patients hospitalized for suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI) but in whom AMI was later ruled out, we describe the prognosis with particular emphasis on diabetics. In all, a previous history of diabetes mellitus occurred in 290 (14%) of the patients. Compared with nondiabetics, they had a longer delay time between onset of symptoms and arrival in hospital. During 1 year of follow-up, their mortality rate was 28% compared with 14% for nondiabetics (p < 0.001), and their reinfarction rate was 20% compared with 10% for nondiabetics. More diabetics died in association with a fatal myocardial infarction and more frequently had ventricular fibrillation preceding death. With the exception of re-infarction, no clear difference in terms of morbidity was observed between the two groups. We conclude that the prognosis in diabetics in whom AMI is ruled out is poor, with between one-quarter and one-third not surviving 1 year.
