Abstract

Highlights

  • Smokers were younger at presentation that nonsmokers were.
  • Smokers had lesser disease severity (i.e., single-vessel involvement) than nonsmokers did.
  • Smokers had less extensive risk profile (low rates of diabetes and hypertension) than nonsmokers did.
  • There was narrow difference in age of smokers and nonsmokers in our population with the difference of around 3 years versus 8 to 12 years in other regions.
  • The smoker group in our population was relatively young compared with in the European and American populations.
  • This is an alarming phenomenon indicating the possibility of early onset MI in our population.
