    • Abstract:
      Background/Aim. Stressful life events present a very important category of psychosocial stress. A few studies have showed that a psychosocial stress represents a very important risk factor for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but measures of stress may not be suitable for different countries, cultures and ethnic groups. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation of stressful life events with AMI in the period of 1998-2000 in the population of the city of Niš. Methods. A case-control study included 100 patients with the first MI (in the period 1998-2000) and 100 healthy subjects, matched with respect to sex and age (± 2 years) from the city of Niš. The data of stressful life events were obtained by the Scaling of life events by Paykel ES, modified by the authors consistent with the examined population and the period of investigation. The Yates χ2 test, odds ratio - OR and their 99% interval of confidence were used as statistical procedures. Results. The results showed that stressful life events in the period of investigation were very important risk factors for AMI with a statistically significant level (p = 0.000). Huge financial problems (OR = 202.36, Ci = 24.82-4387.58), violation of law (OR = 168.00, Ci = 10.66-6658.96) and serious illness of family members (OR = 159.60, Ci = 19.05- 3514.81) were the highest risk for AMI. The patients who reported that his/her son or other member of family had been gone to the army (or mobilization) before the illness onset, had 138 times higher risk of AMI (Ci = 14.98-3222.47, χ2 = 40.95, p = 0.000), while the patients who had mobilized themselves had 84 times higher risk (Ci = 7.00- 2363.06, χ2 = 23.87, p = 0.000). Effect of several stressful life events lead to significantly increased risk of AMI and that significance is larger as the number of life events is more frequent (one life event: OR = 28.41, Ci = 3.73- 593.52; χ2 = 17.40, p = 0.000; ≥ 4: OR = 336.00, Ci = 28.31- 9760.28, χ2 = 50,43, p = 0,000). Conclusion. These findings indicate that stressful life events are associated with AMI and that they are very important for further epidemiological investigation of the triggering mechanisms and should improve preventive strategies of this serious disorder. .
