Survival After AMI by Gender & Race


Women and African-American patients appear to lose more years of life, on average, after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) than men or Caucasian patients, according to researchers from Harvard and Yale. On average, women lost 10.5% more of their expected life than men. African-American patients lost 6.2% more of their life expectancy than Caucasian patients.
