Abstract

 Background and purpose: Cancers and INFARCTION/fa?page=1&sort=1&ftyp=all&fgrp=all&fyrs=all" target="_blank">MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION (MI) are two major causes of human mortality. On the other hand, angiogenesis is a phenomenon having a basic role in the pathogenesis of both of them. Therefore, it seems possible to find a relationship between the occurrence of MI and cancer. There is limited number of relevant reports. Therefore in order to have more data, a case-control study was designed and performed in Sari in 1999-2000.Materials and methods: Among those being admitted in Imam Khomeini and Fatemeh Zahra hospitals of Sari, 50 patients with pathologically confirmed cancer were selected randomly (known as the case group) and 50 other patients without history oaf cancer were matched with the case group for age, sex and history of cancer or MI and close relative (known as the control group). Then, data including confirmed history of MI and presence of some major risk factors (Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia) were collected and analyzed by Chi-square test.Results: Out of 50 case group patients, 8 had proven history of MI, while there were 4 patients with proven history of MI in the control group too, but this difference was not statistically significant. By sex discrimination, history of MI was positive in 6 women of the case group and 1 of the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). There was no significant relationship between males of the two groups, and also there was not a significant difference between the two groups for the presence of MI risk factors as regard or regardless of sex.Conclusion: According to the results of this study, a statistically significant relationship was found between the occurrence of MI and cancers in women. Hence, despite the need for more studies about the relation between cancer and MI, more attention to this phenomenon is required in women.
