Objectives. Ambulatory systolic-diastolic pressure regression index (ASDPRI) is a composite marker of cardiovascular properties. The study was conducted to investigate the relationship between ASDPRI and cardiovascular events in patients with significant coronary atherosclerosis confirmed in angiography. Methods. Associations between ASDPRI and cardiovascular events were examined in 891 subjects referred for diagnostic coronary angiography. ASDPRI was calculated as 1 minus the slope of the linear relation between 24-h DBP and 24-h SBP. Results. During follow-up (median 6.7 years), 135 acute coronary syndromes (ACS), including five deaths and 55 strokes occurred in the studied group. There was a higher 24-h ASDPRI in patients with ACS than in patients with no ACS (0.35 ± 01 vs 0.30 ± 0.1, p < 0.01); 24-h ASDPRI was the independent predictor for ACS (OR = 4.0; 95% CI 1.3-12.0). Conclusions. ASDPRI has an important role as a risk factor of ACS in patients with coronary atherosclerosis.
