The outcome of ST-elevation myocardial infarction by sex: a retrospective cohort study Supplementary dataset
We aimed to compare in-hospital mortality (IHM) of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) between male
and females. We assessed the association of sex with IHM after AMI using simple and multivariate cox
regression models. Results were presented as crude and adjusted hazard ratios along with their 95%
confidence interval (HR; 95% CI). Multivariable Cox regression analysis revealed females had a higher risk
of death than males after ST-elevation MI (STEMI) (adjusted HR [95% CI]: 1.64 [1.15–2.36]; p = 0.007). In
subgroup analysis by age group, this significantly increased risk was only observed in 50- to 64-year-old
females. There were no significant differences between genders after non-STEMI and unspecified MI.
Women aged 50 to 64 years had higher IHM after STEMI than men.
