  Background: The purpose of this study is detecting short-term survival of all hospitalized patients with acute myocardial infarction in Isfahan and Najaf Abad based on sex.

  Methods: The data of all patients who were hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction between 1378 to 1387 in Isfahan and Najaf Abad were collected by trained nurses of the surveillance department in a research center. Using these information and Cox proportional hazard method , Kaplan-Meier method and log Rank test, the survival by sex in different subgroups of patients, was determined and compared between two sexes.

  Results: Short-term 28 days survival following the occurrence of acute myocardial infarction is 90.9%. A significant difference was seen between overall women and men survival ( Respectively , 86.7% vs. 92.5% p<0.001). It decreases significantly with increasing age and increases with thrombolytic use.

  Conclusion: The survival rate of acute myocardial infarction in Iranian women is less than men. Physicians should pay more attention to the treatment and care of patients at higher risk of mortality, especially women and older patients.
