OBJECTIVES: To investigate admission anemia, C-reactive protein (CRP) and mean platelet volume (MPV) together as prognostic markers in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). DESIGN AND METHODS: Baseline hemoglobin, CRP and MPV were determined in 543 patients with acute STEMI to whom primary angioplasty was performed and evaluated for short term mortality (30days). RESULTS: After multivariate analysis anemia (odds ratio 2.69, 95% confidence interval 1.24-5.86) and CRP (odds ratio 3.40, 95% confidence interval 1.13-10.22) remained significant independent predictors of short-term mortality. Addition of anemia and CRP to PAMI risk score improved prediction of short-term outcome; area under ROC curve rose from 0.76 to 0.87 (p<0.001). CONCLUSION: Better ability to determine 30-day mortality was obtained when anemia and CRP were incorporated into the PAMI risk score.
