BACKGROUND: Periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) is known to be a predictor of postprocedural cardiovascular morbidity and mortality following a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the correlation between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and periprocedural myocardial injury in patients following elective PCI in southern China remains unclear. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the association of preoperative low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels with PMI in patients following elective PCI.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study included 1942 consecutive patients who received elective PCI. Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) was used to assess perioperative myocardial injury. The peak cTnI was measured within 24 h after PCI, and the correlation between the cTnI value and the preoperative LDL level was studied.
RESULTS: The data suggest that the PCI patients with preprocedural LDL-C <100 mg/dl were strongly and independently correlated with less risk of PMI. Univariate logistic regression indicated that patients with preprocedural LDL-C of 70~99 mg/dl were correlated with lower risk of postprocedural cTnI elevation above 3×ULN (odds ratio [OR]: 0.762; 95% [CI]: 0.603–0.965; P<0.024) up to 20×ULN (OR: 0.730; 95% CI: 0.576–0.924; P<0.000) compared to those with preprocedural LDL-C ≥100 mg/dl. Moreover, patients with preprocedural LDL-C of <70 mg/dl were more strongly correlated with lower risk of postprocedural cTnI elevation above 3×ULN (OR: 0.641; 95% CI: 0.436–0.936; P<0.021) up to 20×ULN (OR: 0.476; 95% CI: 0.316–0.717; P<0.000).
CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that PCI patients with lower preprocedural LDL-C were correlated with a lower risk of PMI in southern China.
