A retrospective clinical study of types of myocardial infarction (MI) in 200 Libyan female patients was undertaken in Tripoli Medical Center (TMC) from January 2001 to October 2004 (4 years), with age groups between 25 years to 97 years. The results indicate that most of the patients belonged to old age group (50-79 years). Extensive and antero-septal types of MI were most common types of MI. The vast majority of the patients were post-menopausal (95%). The condition was treated mainly with analgesics (morphine), anticoagulants and vasodilators. A further study to correlate lipid profile with the menopausal status is suggested.
