Traditional/existing risk factors have been the major cause of all major cardiovascular events. Despite adjustment of these risk factors, cardiovascular related death and disability is still progressing in the developed and developing nations, indicating absence of reliable and effective risk predicting biomarkers. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Assessment of Different Risk factors for Patients Suffered from Acute Myocardial Infarction from Bihar State. The present study was planned in Department of General Medicine, Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Patna, Bihar. The 50 cases of the acute myocardial infraction were enrolled and evaluated. Detailed history was taken in each patient and information of every patient was recorded in a separate proforma. Informed consent was obtained from all patients. The serum cardiac enzyme level was measured and ECG was done at the time of admission and repeated as necessary. The data generated from the present study concludes that smoking, sedentary lifestyle and low HDL levels were the most common conventional risk factors found in the study population especially in younger age group. Stress did not contribute significantly. There was no statistically significant difference in risk factors between rural and urban population. Large case-control studies with multivariate logistic regression are needed to stratify, which conventional risk factor independently contributes the most in occurrence of coronary artery disease.
