ABSTRACT

Objective:

To explore the relationship between erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and myocardial infarction (MI) occurrence in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) combining coronary artery disease (CAD).

Methods:

A total of 106 consecutive patients with RA combining CAD were studied. There were 46 male and 60 female patients and divided into 2 groupsRA with MI group, n=46 and RA without MI group, n=60. The base line condition was compared between 2 groups, and multivariate regression analysis was conducted to explore the risk factors for MI occurrence in relevant patients.

Results:

Compared with RA without MI group, RA with MI group had the lower level of cholesterol and higher levels of inlfammatory indexes of ESR, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and CRP, P0.05. Multivariate regression analysis indicated that ESR was the independent risk factor of MI occurrence, OR=1.024, 95%CI 1.024 (1.007-1.043), P=0.007.

Conclusion:

ESR was independently related to MI occurrence in patients with RA combining CAD.
