Background: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) comprises a group of conditions that happen together and increase the risk of heart disorders. MetS has known characteristic diagnostic criteria and is diagnosed through physical examination and blood tests. This syndrome is extremely prevalent in patients with acute myocardial infarction. We aimed to determine the prevalence of MetS and its relationship with myocardial infarction and response to treatment in patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction under fibrinolytic treatment.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 145 patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) were enrolled. They were referred to Bu-Ali Sina Hospital in Qazvin, Iran, between January 2018 and January 2019 and were candidates for thrombolytic therapy. The patients were divided into two groups with and without MetS according to the NCEP ATP III definition (the National Cholesterol Education Program-Adult Treatment Panel III). In each group, the ST resolution of more than 50% in electrocardiogram was evaluated 90 minutes after thrombolytic administration. In addition, angiographic information and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were compared between the two groups.
Results: Overall, the prevalence of MetS was 57.2% in the study population. After treatment, ST-segment resolution of more than 50%, the number of involved coronary vessels, the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction flow grade, mean LVEF, and type of myocardial infarction were similar in both study groups.
Conclusion: Our study indicates that MetS does not affect the response rate to thrombolytic treatment.
