We assessed the relationship between contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and SYNTAX score (SS) and serum uric acid (SUA) levels in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A total of 835 STEMI patients in whom primary percutaneous coronary intervention was performed in our cardiology clinic were included in this study (615 male, 220 female; mean age 58.1 ± 12.2 years). The patients were divided into 2 groups (CIN and non-CIN). Contrast-induced nephropathy was observed in 9.6% (80) of patients; SS (13.9 ± 6.2/22.1 ± 5.8) and SUA (5.1 ± 0.9/6.2 ± 0.9) values in the CIN group were higher compared with the non-CIN group (P < .001, for all). All SS (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.136-1.250, P = .001), SUA (95% CI = 1.877-3.236, P = .002), and diabetes (95% CI = 0.998-1.039, P = .026) were independent predictors of CIN in logistic regression analysis. Procedures that can prevent CIN may be beneficial in patients at high risk as identified by the SS and SUA levels.
