The knowledge discovery has been widely applied to mine significant knowledge from medical data. Nevertheless, previous studies have produced large numbers of imprecise patterns. To reduce the number of imprecise patterns, we need an approach that can discover interesting patterns that connote causality between antecedent and consequence in a pattern. In this paper, we propose association rule mining method that can discover interesting patterns that include medical knowledge in Korean acute myocardial infarction registry that consists of 1,247 young adults collected by 51 participating hospitals since 2005. Proposed method can remove imprecise patterns and discover target patterns that include associations between blood factors and disease history. The association that blood factors affect to disease history is defined as target pattern. In our experiments, the interestingness of a target pattern is evaluated in terms of statistical measures such as lift, leverage, and conviction. We discover medical knowledge that glucose, smoking, triglyceride total cholesterol, and creatinine are associated with diabetes and hypertension in Korean young adults with acute myocardial infarction.
