The purpose of this study is comparison of risk factors of MI in hospitalized men and women patients in CCU. The CHD is the most important cause of mortality in the industry countries. Different environmental and race in each location can affect on frequency of risk factors of MI. In this cross sectional study, comparison was done between men and women who have involved in MI. The random sampling method was used Blood sugar, cholesterol and homocystein, LPa, BMI, family history, skin color, smoking and the amount of activity were assessed with variables such as age. The data was collected via questionnaire from September until March 2004-2005. Finally the data were analyzed with using t-test, Chi square and pearson correlation. In this research 169 patients who involved in MI (114 men and 55 women) have participated. The mean of age in the men was 55.4 and in the women was 61.02. All patients had risk factors. In the men, smoking (52.6%) and family history (41.1%) were the most common risk factors of MI. In the women, hyperlipidemia (66.4%), diabetes (62%) and hypertension (58.2%) were the most common risk factors of MI. The mean of BMI in the men was 25.9±4.25 and in the women was 27.6±4.71. The mean of LPa in the men was 59.2±4.21 and in the women was 50.9±4.25. the mean of homocystein in the men was 10.7±7.67 and in the women was 8.9±4.45. Diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and smoking had significant relationship with age and sex (p<0.001) and skin color, homocystein, LPa, job, personality type and mobility didn't have significant relationship with age and sex. In this study the most common risk factors of MI in the men were smoking and positive family history and in the women were known hyperlipidemia and diabetes.
