Aims and Objective: To study the extent of anterior wall involvement and incidence of smoking in myocardial infarction in young adults Methods: Patients admitted in CCU in RMMCH during the period of Oct 2017 and October 2019were appraised. After satisfying inclusion and exclusion criteria 50 patients were brought forthwith into the study. The demographic profiles, modifiable and non modifiable risk factors for MI, Clinical signs and symptoms, ECG findings, ECHO findings, cardiac enzymes were

Among the patients anterior wall involvement was seen in 76 % (n=38) of patients. Conclusion: Hence from above observations it has been ascertained that smoking has been implicated to have a major role in myocardial infarction among all modifiable risk factors. Furthermore anterior wall is found to be afflicted more than other regions of myocardium in young adults with myocardial infarction.
