Abstract

We evaluated a possible association between S. aureus bacteremia (SAB) and the occurrence of myocardial infarction (MI) in 588 patients using the self-controlled case series method. SAB increased the risk for MI 35-fold in the 2 d after recognition of this infection (IRR = 35.3; CI 16.7-74.7).
