BACKGROUND: In patients with the metabolic syndrome, the prevalence of cardiovascular disease, disease-related morbidity and mortality are reported to be significantly higher than in a population without the metabolic syndrome. We investigated the role of metabolic syndrome and related biomarkers as predictors of infarct size in patients with their first myocardial infarction.
METHODS: This was a cross-sectional sub-study from the 3 months follow-up in the NORwegian Study of DIstrict treatment of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NORDISTEMI), including 152 consecutive patients, all initially treated with thrombolysis. Infarct size after 3 months was determined by late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, measuring ventricular infarct volume in absolute and relative terms.
RESULTS: At 3 months, 33 patients (22%) were categorized as having metabolic syndrome. There was no significant difference in median infarct size between those presenting with and without the metabolic syndrome [relative infarct volume 9.0 (4.8, 15.1) % vs. 8.3 (2.9, 13.6)%, p = 0.34]. Adjusting for possible confounders did not alter the results essentially. Circulating levels of IL-18, CRP and PAI-I activity were significantly higher in patients with the metabolic syndrome while adiponectin concentrations were significantly lower (p < or = 0.01 for all). None of these variables were associated with myocardial infarct size.
CONCLUSIONS: No association between the presence of metabolic syndrome and related biomarkers, and the size of the myocardial infarction was apparent in this study population.
