Young women hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction (MI) have greater in-hospital mortality than young men. However, the reasons for this difference have not been well characterized. We analyzed the data from 423,067 patients (247,701 men and 175,366 women) who were discharged with the diagnosis of MI from nonfederal hospitals in New Jersey and 355,569 coronary heart disease (CHD) deaths in New Jersey from 1990 to 2004 in 4 age strata: 35 to 54, 55 to 64, 65 to 74 and ≥75 years. Of the patients hospitalized for MI, young (35 to 54 years) women had greater in-hospital mortality than young men (5.2% vs 2.5%, adjusted odds ratio 1.64, 95% confidence interval 1.48 to 1.81, p
