Unrecognized Non-Q-Wave Myocardial Infarction: Prevalence and Prognostic Significance in Patients with Suspected Coronary Disease

Figure 3

Kaplan–Meier estimates of survival (A) and cardiac survival (B) in patients with unrecognized non-Q-wave MI (blue line) and without MI (red line).

Overall and cardiac survival in patients with non-Q-wave UMI was significantly reduced in comparison to patients without MI (p<0.0001 for both). The annual mortality in patients with non-Q-wave MI was 15-fold higher than that in patients without MI (10.8% per year versus 0.8% per year, respectively).
