Abstract. Rates of hospital mortality from myocardial infarction depend upon many factors: clinical profile of patients, diagnostic and treatment methods in use, organization and quality of care in a particular health care setting.

Aim: to identify medical and social factors affecting hospital mortality from myocardial infarction in a specialized heart hospital.

Data and methods. Data for study was continuous retrospective patient database, that includes 4349 patients with myocardial infarction admitted in 2008-2011. Analysis of quantitative data calculated mean and standard deviation (M▒SD using Mann-Whitney test and Kruskal-Wallis test. To compare quality data frequency (F) was calculated using Pearson χ-squared criterion. p <0.05 was accepted as critical level of statistical significance.

Results. In 2008-2011, a total of 536 patients died from myocardial infarction, 57.5% of them - from recurrent infraction. The average age of patients added up to 72.7 ▒ 10.6 years. In 52.0% of cases the cause of death was cardiogenic shock. 48.3% of the dead had a disability status.

In the structure of hospital mortality the share of mortality within 24 hours averaged 33.6▒4.3%. The average level of mortality within 24 hours equals to 4.1▒1.0%.

Hospital mortality was 12.3 ▒2.0%; mortality from myocardial infarction complicated with cardiogenic shock added up to 82.7▒9.6%; mortality from primary myocardial infarction equaled to7.4▒ 1.6% and from recurrent myocardial infarction ľ 23.8▒4.5% (p = 0.0001).

Hospital mortality depends upon patientsĺ age: mortality in patients of working age was 4.9▒0.7%, and 12.7▒2.4% - in patients of retirement age, and 25.7▒5.2% (p=0,0001) in senile age patients.

Hospital mortality rate is higher among women (1.3 ▒ 3.2%) compared to men (9.6 ▒ 1.4, p = 0.0001). Hospital mortality among the disabled patients (14.7 ▒ 3.8%) is higher compared to patients without disability (10.6 ▒ 2.5, p = 0.0001).

Hospital mortality of patients without reperfusion was 16.0▒4.2%, and 8.0▒1.1% (p = 0.0001) - in case of reperfusion.

Conclusion. Factors that negatively affect hospital mortality rates include recurrent myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock, female gender, disability, old age and conservative patient management.

Keywords: hospital mortality; mortality within 24 hours; myocardial infarction; cardiogenic shock; tactics of treatment of patients.
