Multivariate analysis (model 2) found that age,llip class, infarct location, multivessel disease, and finalerfusion were independently associated with in-hospitalrtality in patients 70 years old. All these variables andvious myocardial infarction were significant in patients0 years old. On multivariate analysis, the association ofale gender and in-hospital mortality remained signifi-t in patients 70 years old. However, gender was not adictor of in-hospital mortality in patients 70 years old.The final reperfusion (TIMI 3 flow) was a strong inde-</p><p>ndent predictor of decreased in-hospital mortality inmen (OR 0.16, 95% CI 0.07 to 0.37) and men (OR 0.14,% CI 0.06 to 0.32)70 years old, women (OR 0.14, 95%0.03 to 0.67) and men (OR 0.15, 95% CI 0.08 to 0.28)0 years old.

The third In-</p><p>cosmnational Study of Infarct Survival (ISIS-3) reported thatre than 2/3 of the excess mortality among women was</p><p>minated by the adjustment for age.8 Although some pre-us studies have reported that younger women have</p><p>orer outcomes than younger men,15 the results of thesent study found no gender-specific difference in mor-</p><p>ity after AMI among patients 70 years old. In contrast,patients 70 years old, women had an approximately-fold greater risk of in-hospital mortality after AMI.Consistent with previous studies, we found that women</p><p>d more co-morbidities than men, including hypertensiond diabetes. In contrast, men were more likely to be smok-</p><p>and to have a history of previous myocardial infarction.though these findings were comparable between patients0 years old and those70 years old, the effect of gendermortality was different. In patients 70 years old, the</p><p>nventional risk factors, including age, Killip class, infarctation, multivessel disease, and final reperfusion status,re associated with in-hospital mortality, but gender wast. In patients 70 years old, however, female gender wasredictor of mortality after AMI, as were other conven-</p><p>nal risk factors.
