The association between the urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) and target lesion revascularization (TLR) is unknown in patients who are implanted with drug-eluting stents (DESs) or bare metal stents (BMSs) for the treatment of coronary artery disease. Of 231 Japanese patients who were implanted with DESs and/or BMSs during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) between July 2009 and January 2011, 118 underwent follow-up coronary angiography at 6 to 9 months after PCI; 103 were negative for qualitative tests for urine protein: 32 (31.0%)/103 patients underwent TLR for severe in-stent restenosis (ISR) and 71 did not. On the next day after admission to the hospital, first-morning-void spot urine samples were collected to calculate UACR based on urinalysis results. Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficients indicated positive associations of UACR with late loss as assessed by quantitative coronary analysis in the overall cohort, (r = +0.515, P < 0.0001), the DES subgroup (r = +0.443, P < 0.0001), and the BMS subgroup (r = +0.652, P < 0.0001). The incidence of multivessel lesions was significantly higher (P < 0.05) in the TLR group. UACR was significantly higher (P < 0.01) in the TLR group (23.88 ± 31.8 mg/gCr) than in the control group (6.29 ± 7.46 mg/gCr). Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed UACR (odds ratio: 1.07; 95% confidence interval: 1.02-1.12; P < 0.01) to be associated with TLR. UACR was suggested to be a potential predictor of TLR required for severe ISR after PCI with coronary stents.
