Prognosis varies widely in patients with acute coronary syndromes because of the heterogeneous nature of this condition. Successful outcome depends upon early risk stratification and an early decision regarding the approach of management of these patients. We studied 120 patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction, who were subsequently divided into two groups based on their final outcome (improvement or expiry). C-reactive protein and CPK-MB were quantitatively estimated at the time of hospital admission. Also, the number of ECG leads showing ST deviation and its sum was calculated and correlated with the biochemical markers. Differences in these variables were analysed between the two groups of patients. Significant differences were found in the mean levels of CRP, CPK-MB, the number of ECG leads with ST deviation and its sum between the two groups. Also, significant correlation was found between the levels of biochemical markers and the sum of ST deviation at admission in all patients of acute myocardial infarction.
