We investigated whether the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) can predict stent thrombosis (STh) and high mortality rate in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We analyzed data of 102 patients with STh and 450 patients with STEMI admitted to 2 high volume hospitals. Preprocedural NLR was significantly higher in patients with STh (P <.001). There was a significantly higher mortality rate in patients with high NLR during hospitalization (P <.001). Also, in the STh group there was a significantly higher mortality rate in patients with high NLR (P <.001). In receiver-operating characteristic analysis, NLR >4.8 had 56% sensitivity and 68% specificity for predicting STh. The NLR >4.9 had 70% sensitivity and 65% specificity for predicting in-hospital mortality. On multivariate regression analysis, NLR was found to be significantly related to STh. In patients with STEMI, preprocedural high NLR is associated with both STh and higher mortality rates. © The Author(s) 2014.

We hypothesized that contrast media volume-estimated glomerular filtration rate (CV-e-GFR) ratio may be a predictor of contrast media-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). We investigated the associations between CV-e-GFR ratio and CI-AKI in 597 patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). An absolute ≥0.3 mg/dL increase in serum creatinine compared with baseline levels within 48 hours after the procedure was considered as CI-AKI; 78 (13.1%) of the 597 patients experienced CI-AKI. The amount of contrast during procedure was higher in the CI-AKI group than in those without CI-AKI (153 vs 135 mL, P =.003). The CV-e-GFR ratio was significantly higher in patients with CI-AKI than without (2.3 vs 1.5, P <.001). In multivariate analysis, independent predictors of CI-AKI were low left ventricular ejection fraction (P =.018, odds ratio [OR] = 0.966), e-GFR <60 mL/min (P =.012, OR = 2.558), and CV-e-GFR >2 (P <.001, OR = 5.917). In conclusion, CV-e-GFR ratio is significantly associated with CI-AKI after pPCI. © The Author(s) 2014.

Background and aim We investigated the utility of the preprocedural red cell distribution width (RDW) for predicting contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) in patients with ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent a primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Materials and methods A total of 630 consecutive patients who were routinely referred to coronary angiography for STEMI were included in the present study. Results CI-AKI was observed in 79 patients (12.5%). The RDW, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and the mean platelet volume were significantly higher in the CI-AKI group than in the non-CI-AKI group (P<0.001, P=032, P=0.025, and P=0.039, respectively). Serum total bilirubin and direct bilirubin levels were not different among the study groups. Using multivariate logistic regression analysis, we found that left ventricular ejection fraction [odds ratio (OR)=0.972, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.945-0.998, P=0.033], estimated glomerular filtration rate (OR=0.970, 95% CI 0.959-0.981, P<0.001), contrast volume (OR=1.007, 95% CI 1.002-1.012, P=0.009), and RDW (OR=1.406, 95% CI 1.120-1.792, P=0.005) were independent predictors of CI-AKI. Conclusion Red blood cell distribution width, an inexpensive and easily measurable laboratory variable, is associated independently with the development of CI-AKI. Our data suggest that RDW may be a useful marker in CI-AKI risk stratification. © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.

We investigated the association between platelet indices and the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI).A total of 484 consecutive patients who were routinely referred to coronary angiography for STEMI and 81 age- and gender-matched patients with normal coronary arteries were included in the present study. We analyzed the relation between the platelet distribution width (PDW) and the angiographic severity of CAD. The SYNTAX score was used for assessing the severity of coronary atherosclerosis.The mean platelet volume (MPV), the plateletcrit (PCT) and the neutrophil levels were significantly higher in the STEMI group than in the control group. Patients with an elevated SYNTAX score (>32) had higher PDW values. The levels of plateletcrit and the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) were lower in the high SYNTAX score group compared to the moderate-to-low SYNTAX score group. The PDW was positively correlated with age (r = 0.128, p=0.004) and SYNTAX score (r = 0.209, p<0.001). There was a mild, significant inverse association between the PDW level and the eGFR (r = -0.101, p=0.049), the mean platelet volume (MPV) (r = -290, p<0.001) and the PCT (r = -345, p<001). Using multivariate logistic regression analysis, we found that age (OR = 1.046, 95% CI 1.013-1.079, p=0.005), diabetes (OR = 4.779, 95% CI 2.339-9.767, p<0.001) and PDW (OR = 1.229, 95% CI 1.072-1409, p=0.003) were independent correlates of high SYNTAX score.Platelet distribution width, an inexpensive and easily measurable laboratory variable, is independently associated with high SYNTAX score.

We evaluated the association between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and slow coronary flow (SCF) in patients with normal to mildly impaired renal function; 211 patients with angiographically proven SCF and 219 controls were studied. Patients were categorized based on the angiographic findings as with or without SCF. We used the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation to calculate eGFR. The frequency of mildly decreased eGFR, serum uric acid levels, and eGFR was higher in the SCF group. Patients with mildly impaired renal function had higher thrombolysis in myocardial infarction frame counts in 3 major coronary arteries. In logistic regression analysis, uric acid (odds ratio [OR] = 1.323, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.109-1.572, P = .002) and eGFR (OR = 0.972, 95% CI = 0.957-0.987, P < .001) were independent correlates of SCF. In conclusion, eGFR was significantly correlated with SCF in patients with normal to mildly impaired renal function.

Objective: The heterogeneity in the degree of collateralization among patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) remains incompletely understood. We evaluated the predictors of poorly developed coronary collateral circulation (CCC) in patients with stable coronary artery disease. Methods: Current study is a retrospective study, consisting of 118 patients with poor CCC and 130 patients with good CCC. We investigated predictors of poor coronary collaterals in a cohort of 248 patients who had high-grade coronary stenosis or occlusion on their angiograms. To classify CCC, we used the Rentrop classification. Results: Patients with poorly developed CCC had significantly higher neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (N/L) compared with those with well-developed CCC, (4.2±2.8 vs. 3±3.1, p=0.001), whereas mean platelet volume, red cell distribution width and uric acid were not significantly different. Logistic regression analysis showed that N/L ratio (odds ratio 1.199, 95% confidence interval 1.045-1.375) and serum triglyceride levels [odds ratio (OR)=1.006, 95% confidence interval (CI)=1.001-1.010] were independent predictors of poorly developed CCC. Conclusion: An elevated level of N/L ratio is independently associated with a significant impairment in coronary collateralization. Our findings suggest that N/L ratio is an inexpensive, universally available hematological marker for sufficiency of CCC in patients with stable coronary artery disease. © 2015 by Turkish Society of Cardiology.

Serum fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) and fetuin-A are established predictors of morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular disease. The objective of the present study is to evaluate the relationship between coronary artery disease (CAD) and serum concentrations of FGF-23 and fetuin-A.A total of 383 subjects who underwent coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) were included in the study. CCTA detected CAD in 208 patients; the rest of the patients had no detectable CAD.Serum FGF-23 and fetuin-A levels were significantly increased in CAD patients compared to non-CAD patients (26.621.1pg/mL vs. 17.916.1pg/mL, p=0.001 and 826350mg/L vs. 595300mg/L, p<0.001, respectively). Serum FGF-23, fetuin-A, low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol, and uric acid values were elevated in non-diabetic patients with CAD when compared to those without CAD. FGF-23, and fetuin-A were not significantly different in diabetic patients with CAD when compared to those without CAD. Using multivariate logistic regression analysis, we found that age, hypertension, LDL-Cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-Cholesterol, hs-CRP, uric acid, FGF-23 and fetuin-A levels were independently associated with the presence of CAD.FGF-23 and fetuin-A were positively correlated with coronary atherosclerosis Similar trends were seen among diabetic patients, but this did not reach statistical significance. FGF-23 and fetuin-A could be used as novel risk markers of cardiovascular disease.
