The study of the relationship of C-reactive protein with ischaemic heart disease
To evaluate the serum concentration of CRP in IHD and its association with prognosis.
Material and Method: Diagnosis of the patients was made after thorough history and ECG and relevant laboratory investigations. The C reactive protein assay was performed the presence of agglutination indicates that the content of CRP in the sample equal to or greater than 0.6 mg/dl. Homogenous suspension of fluid (without agglutination) indicates a CRP level lower than 0.6 mg/dl. The detection limit of this test is 0.6 mg/dl. Therefore, values of less than 0.6mg/dl were taken as normal concentration of CRP. Values of more than 0.6 mg/dl were taken as elevated levels of CRP.
Results: Mean CRP values are significantly higher in AMI group as compared to unstable angina group, both on admission and after 48 hours. Chi Square value after 48 hours of admission found was 23.254 with P value of 0.006 which is statistically significant (< 0.05).
Conclusion: Higher the level of CRP value on admission and 48 hours more is the risk of complications and death. Hence CRP values help in risk stratification and predicting the prognosis.
