Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To study the patient profiles and the prognostic impact of type 2 myocardial infarction (MI) on outcomes of acute ischemic stroke (AIS).

METHODS: The National Readmission Database 2018 was queried for patients with primary AIS hospitalizations with and without type 2 MI. Baseline characteristics, inpatient outcomes, and 30-day all-cause readmissions between cohorts were compared.

RESULTS: Of 587,550 AIS hospitalizations included in the study, 4182 (0.71%) had type 2 MI. Patients with type 2 MI were older (73.6 years vs 70.1 years; P

CONCLUSION: Type 2 MI in patients hospitalized with AIS is associated with poor prognosis and higher resource utilization.
