Abstract

Patients who smoke paradoxically have favorable outcomes after acute myocardial infarctions compared with nonsmokers. However, after adjustment for age only, the decrease in all-cause mortality in the smoker population is explained by the smokers' generally younger age, with better prognoses due to their age.
