BackgroundThe presence of chronic kidney disease is an independent prognostic factor in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). We compared the Chronic Kidney Disease-Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation and the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equation with regard to prognostic value in patients with MI.MethodsThis study analyzed a retrospective cohort of 11 050 consecutive patients who had MI and were enrolled in the Korea Acute Myocardial Infarction Registry from November 2005 to August 2008. We applied the CKD-EPI equation and the MDRD study equation to determine the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in a cohort of patients with MI.ResultsThe mean eGFR(CKD-EPI) was slightly higher than that of eGFR(MDRD) (73.16 versus 72.23 mL/min/1.73 m(2); P < 0.001). The prevalence of eGFR(CKD-EPI) <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) was 26.9%, whereas that of eGFR(MDRD) was 28.5%. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was significantly larger for predicting the 1-year major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) and 1-year all-cause mortality with CKD-EPI equation (0.648 versus 0.641, 0.768 versus 0.753, respectively; P < 0.001). The net reclassification index for improvement in risk of 1-year MACE and 1-year all-cause mortality were 4.09% (P< 0.001) and 9.25% (P< 0.001), respectively.ConclusionsThe application of the eGFR(CKD-EPI) demonstrated better predictive values for clinical outcomes than eGFR(MDRD) in a cohort of patients with MI.
