Abstract

Background Previous studies on gender differences in outcome in patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have been performed, but most of those are from before the current era of PCI technique and medical therapy and have a short duration of follow-up. The objective of our study is to assess the influence of gender on long-term outcome in patients with STEMI who underwent primary percutaneous intervention (PCI) between January 2006 and May 2008. Methods Two-year follow-up data from 202 female and 668 male patients undergoing primary PCI for STEMI were available from the DEBATER (A Comparison of Drug Eluting and Bare Metal Stents for Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention with or without Abciximab in ST-segment elevation Myocardial Infarction: The Eindhoven Reperfusion Study) trial database. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiac events (MACE), defined as the composite of death, myocardial infarction, and target vessel revascularization. Results Women were older (64.7 +/- 11.7 vs. 59.0 +/- 10.7; P
