Abstract

Objective: There is not enough available data in our country about the prevalence of risk factors for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), which has the highest in-hospital mortality rate within subtypes of acute coronary syndromes. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to evaluate the prevalence of risk factors for STEMI in Central Anatolia, one of the regions with high risk for coronary heart disease (CHD).
