The subjects consisted of 2,733 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who were admitted to our 11 institutions between 1983 and 1988, examined by coronary arteriography, and discharged alive. The patients were followed for an average of 2.9 years after discharge. During the follow-up period, re-infarction occurred in 172 patients (6.3%). The factors associated with re-infarction were total cholesterol of more than 250 mg/dl, HDL-cholesterol of less than 35 mg/dl and diabetes mellitus. The rate of re-infarction was also high in patients who had had a previous infarction before admission, angina pectoris before or after the onset of AMI or multiple-vessel disease. In contrast, intracoronary thrombolysis reduced the rate of re-infarction.
