It was observed a predominance of cases from the urban areas (75.5 %). The inferior localization of AMI was the most frequent (51.1 % of the cases). Angina pectoris was the commonest form of onset. Mortality in our study was elevated, amounting to 9 deaths of a total of 45 patients (20 %). The highest mortality was detected among women (66.6 %).
