- •The long-term, all-cause unadjusted mortality in STEMI patients was higher in women.
- •After adjustment for confounders, women had a better long-term prognosis.
- •Female sex predicted lower long-term mortality.
- •Risk factors, heart failure, age, and comorbidities rather than sex affect the worse outcome.
