The most recent reports published by the American Heart Association have confirmed that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among Americans and 42.6% of deaths attributable to cardiovascular disease were related to coronary heart disease (CHD) [1]. Prior studies have shown that the incidence [2] and mortality rate [3] of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) among young adults have not improved over the last few decades in the United States. However, there are very limited updated data on the most recent impact of AMI in that particular age group. We therefore queried data from the 2017 National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample (NIS) database to provide an updated assessment of the burden of AMI in the United States among young adults.
