Revising the link between proton-pump inhibitors and risk of acute myocardial infarction-a case-crossover analysis.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate if the prescription of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) was associated with a sudden risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) while controlling for time-invariant confounding by using a case-crossover design. An association might indicate that physicians take prodromal symptoms of myocardial ischaemia for dyspepsia.
