Abstract

The relationship between menopause and non-fatal acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was considered by analysing data from a case-control study conducted in Italy between 1983 and 1992. Cases were 429 women, below age 75 years, with a first episode of non-fatal AMI, admitted to 30 coronary care units; controls were 863 women admitted to the same network of hospitals for acute diseases other than cardiovascular, neoplastic, or hormone-related. Post-menopausal women were not at higher risk of AMI than pre/perimenopausal women, after adjustment for age and other selected covariates [multivariate odds ratio (OR) 0.99]. With reference to age at menopause, compared with women reporting menopause when
