BACKGROUND: This study investigated the role of erythrocyte distribution width (RDW) and platelet distribution width (PDW) in evaluating the treatment efficacy for acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 120 AMI patients receiving conventional myocardial infarction treatment were included. The patients were divided into an effective group and an ineffective group based on treatment efficacy. The RDW and PDW were measured before and after treatment. We used the independent samples t test, chi-square test, logistic regression, and ROC curves for analysis.
RESULTS: The change and change rate of RDW and PDW were significantly improved (p<0.01) and the positive change rate of RDW, PDW, and RDW + PDW were significantly lower in the effective group compared with those in the ineffective group (p<0.01). The change and change rate of RDW and PDW are independent factors for treatment efficacy evaluation (p<0.05). ROC curve analysis showed that the changes and change rate of RDW and PDW were all significant in evaluating treatment efficacy (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: The change and change rate of RDW and PDW or their combination can be used to evaluate treatment efficacy; however, the absolute value of RDW and PDW are not as significant.
