Abstract

Aims: The aim was to investigate the circadian and weekly variation in Chinese young patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Methods: This was a 10-year retrospective cohort study. We studied patients (>18 to 2 = 91.7, P <.001). However, there was no significant weekly variation for these patients in the present study. Conclusions: There was a significant circadian variation with a peak from 00:01 to 06:00 in Chinese young patients with AMI. However, there was no significant weekly variation in these patients. The circadian periodicity may create new possibilities for disease prevention and medication prescription.
