    Abstract

    We examined short and long term outcomes of MI in a consecutive series of 169 men and 50 women who were followed for an average of 3.5 Years. Similar percentages of men and women were admitted to medical intensive care, received in-patient cardiac rehabilitation. quit smoking at one year: were still smoking, were taking a lipid lowering drug or had returned to work, at one year, underwent coronary angiography at 3.5 years or had died by 3.5 years. The lack of gender difference in outcome may reflect an absence of gender bias in the management of men and women with MI in southwest Scotland.
