Elevated uric acid (UA) levels have been associated with cardiovascular disease in epidemiologic studies. The relation between UA levels and long-term outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction who undergo primary percutaneous coronary intervention is not known. Data from 2,249 consecutive patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention were evaluated. Patients were divided into 2 groups with high or low UA using upper limits of normal of 6 mg/dl for women and 7 mg/dl for men. There were 1,643 patients in the low-UA group (mean age 55.9 ± 11.6 years, 85% men) and 606 patients in the high-UA group (mean age 60.5 ± 12.6 years, 76% men). Serum UA levels were 8.0 ± 1.5 mg/dl in the high-UA group and 5.2 ± 1.0 mg/dl in the low-UA group (p <0.001). The in-hospital mortality rate was significantly higher in patients with high UA levels (9% vs 2%, p <0.001), as was the rate of adverse outcomes in patients with high UA. The mean follow-up time was 24.3 months. Cardiovascular mortality, reinfarction, target vessel revascularization, heart failure, and major adverse cardiac events were all significantly higher in the high-UA group. In a multivariate analyses, high plasma UA levels were an independent predictor of major adverse cardiac events in the hospital (odds ratio 2.03, 95% confidence interval 1.25 to 3.75, p = 0.006) and during long-term follow-up (odds ratio 1.64, 95% confidence interval 1.05 to 2.56, p = 0.03). In conclusion, high UA levels on admission are independently associated with in-hospital and long-term adverse outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction who undergo primary percutaneous coronary intervention.
