In a new study that looked at outcomes of acute MI complicating pregnancy and the puerperium, acute MI occurred in about eight cases per 100,000 hospitalizations in pregnant women and in those up to 6 weeks after childbirth.
Additionally, “what we also found was in terms of mortality after an MI was that it remained steady over the last decade or so, despite the fact that we have significant advances in both medical management and device-based therapies for the treatment of [acute] MI,” Sripal Bangalore, MD, MHA, FACC, FAHA, FSCAI, associate professor of medicine, director of research of the cardiac catheterization laboratory and director of the Cardiovascular Outcomes Group in the Cardiovascular Clinical Research Center at NYU Langone Health, told Cardiology Today. Bangalore is also a member of the Cardiology Today Next Gen Innovators.
