Published:November 01, 2018DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.amjcard.2018.10.019
      Multiple adult-related studies have confirmed the increased risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in cocaine, amphetamine, and cannabis users. Since there are limited data involving the risk of these substances with AMI in teenagers, we hereby conducted a retrospective analysis using the “2012 Kids’ Inpatient Database, Healthcare Cost, and Utilization Project, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality” and their partners which consisted of more than 1,000 US hospitals.
