Abstract

Introduction: Renal insufficiency (RI) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in patients (P) with coronary artery disease and in P submitted to angioplasty. In ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEAMI), this impact has not been well demonstrated. Aim: To evaluate the impact of RI in P with STEAMI. Methods: We evaluated 160 P admitted with STEAMI, mean age of 62±14 years, 76% male. We determined creatinine levels on admission. RI was defined as a level >1.5 mg/dl. Analysis of clinical, electrocardiographic and laboratory variables was performed, in relation to the endpoint defined as the occurrence of death at 30-day follow-up. Results: There were 16 deaths (10%) at 30-day follow-up. P with RI (n=21) were older (68±11 vs 61±14 years, p
