The article presents the results of a retrospective analysis of 681 patients’ medical histories during 2015 with the final diagnosis of myocardial infarction, which was conducted to identify the features of myocardial infarction (MI) in smoking patients compared with non‐smokers. It is shown that smoking contributes to the development of MI at a younger age, despite a less burdensome anamnesis on the concomitant cardiovascular risk factors. The course of MI in smokers is characterized by a greater size of necrosis and requires more coronary revascularization measures, including thrombolytic therapy and stenting.
