Abstract: Background: The present study was carried out to describe the clinical profile and outcome of myocardial infarction in women. Methods: After obtaining the consent, detailed investigation reports like cardiac troponin, electrocardiogram, 2D echocardiograph, lipid profile, chest Xray were collected from the study population. Purposive sampling method was used and sample size was 60. Data were analyzed using SPSS (version 19). Descriptive statistics, Chi - square test and independent sample t - test were done appropriately. P - value of <0.05 was considered statistically significant. Conclusion: All the deaths in this study were noted in age group of >70 years.66.7% deaths were noted in Killip class IV and 33.3% deaths were noted in Killip class III.100% of deaths were noted in patients with abnormal lipid profile. Among deaths, 66.7% had severe LV dysfunction and 33.3% had moderate LV dysfunction. Majority of mortality was noted in elderly age group, presence of risk factors, postmenopausal women in this study. Abnormal lipid profile showed strong association between atherosclerosis and CAD. Women presented with Killip class IV had higher mortality according to this study. Based on Echocardiography, mortality is seen in women with severe LV dysfunction. Mortality is seen in women who underwent PTCA along with anticoagulants.
