Abstract

Is C-reactive Protein Related to Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Brazilian Patients undergoing Coronary Angiography?

Objective: To determine plasma levels of high sensibility C - reactive protein (hs-CRP) in patients undergoing coronary angiography and compare them with the components of the Metabolic Syndrome.

Methods: Socio-economic, anthropometric and biochemical data from 95 patients undergoing coronary arteriography were collected.

Results: The profiles of three groups of hs-CRP (low, moderate and high) were statistically equal in gender (p=0.625), age (p=0.879), smoking (p=0.800), alcohol consumption (p=0.560), practice physical activity (p=0.636), presence of diabetes (p=0.530), hypertension (p=0.207), SM (p=0.121), use of statins (p=0.472), total cholesterol (p=0.329) HDL-c levels (p=0.288), LDL-c (p=0.940), triglycerides (p=0.386), glucose (p=0.232), waist circumference (p=0.377), the presence of plaques (p=0.181) and catheterization of the report (p=0.207). Besides, there are more obese patients at high hs-CRP class (p=0.012).

Conclusion: Although the CRP is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and it is strongly linked to the components of Metabolic Syndrome, in the patients undergoing coronary angiography evaluated in this study, a significant difference was observed only for the presence of obesity.
