The Aim of the Research: This study aims to analyse the cases of myocardial infarction and hospital mortality from it in Lithuania during the period 2001-2011.
Methodology: We used data of Lithuania Institute of Hygiene data base SVEIDRA. Were collected all cases of acute myocardial infarction, reinfartion, and hospital lethality from myocardial infarction in Lithuanian hospitals in 2001-2011. Analysed variation of these patients number during 11 years. All patients were separated and analysed in four age groups (to 44 years, 45-64 years, 65-74 years, 75 years and older). Also was analysed mean age of patients with myocardial infarction and mean age of deyed patients.
Conclusions: During 2001-2011 increased the number of patients with acute myocardial infarction and reinfarction. The number of hospitalised patients each year increases moderately 161 (±34) cases (p=0,01). Ordinary the ration between man and women was 58% and 42%. Patients until 44 years compose minor part of all patients. From year 2005 old age patients compose the major part of all patients treated in hospitals.
Lithuanian man mostly have acute myocardial infarction or reinfarction in age of 45-64 years. But the number of 75 years and older man increased during the year 2001-2011.
Lithuanian women illness with acute myocardial infarction or reinfarction increases with their age. Women have acute myocardial infarction or reinfarction in age of 75 years and older. This part of women patients increases all the time.
During 11 years the age of these patients is getting older. Man have the myocardial infarction in younger age than women (p<0,01). Hospital lethality from myocardial infarction decreases in Lithuania. The highest lethality is in the group of 75 years and older patients. Women lethality is higher than man lethality (p<0,01).
The age of dead patients is getting older in Lithuania. Women die from myocardial infarction in older age than man (p<0,01).
