Correlation between monocyte to high-density lipoprotein ratio and major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndrome after percutaneous coronary intervention
Objective: To investigate the correlation between monocyte to high-density lipoprotein ratio (MHR) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Methods: In this retrospective study, 120 ACS patients who received PCI in our hospital from September 2014 to August 2019 were selected and divided into MACE group and normal discharge (ND) group. Their clinical data were collected, and MHR values were compared. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to analyze the correlations between various factors and ACS. The correlation between MHR and Gensini score was subjected to Pearson’s analysis. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was plotted to analyze the diagnostic value of MHR for MACE.
Results: Hypertension degree, white cell count, Gensini score, MHR and the levels of total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC), apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1), ApoB, lipoprotein (a) [LP(a)] and uric acid (UA) in MACE group were significantly higher than those in ND group (P<0.05). HDLC, ApoA1, TC, MHR, LDLC and ApoB were independent risk factors for MACE of ACS patients after PCI (P<0.05). There was a positive correlation between MHR and Gensini score (r=0.832, P<0.05), and the optimal cutoff value of MHR for diagnosing MACE was 9.45.
Conclusion: Serum MHR is positively correlated with Gensini score in ACS patients after PCI, which can be used as an independent predictor for MACE in hospital.
