Our aim in this study was to evaluate the relationship between metabolic syndrome (MS) as defined by different criteria and the severity of coronary lesions in a sample of diabetic and non-diabetic patients undergoing elective coronary angiography. All patients had blood and urine tests, physical examinations were performed before angiography, and finally they were classified based on three criteria (World Health Organisation-WHO, Adult Treatment Panel-ATP III and International Diabetes Federation-IDF). Eighty-eight patients were diabetic, and 96 patients were non-diabetic. Among all patients, diabetics had significantly higher Gensini scores (P < 0.001). According to WHO criteria (P = 0.005) and IDF criteria (P = 0.015) metabolic syndrome patients had higher Gensini scores, but for ATP III criteria difference was not significant.

Abstract

Our aim in this study was to evaluate the relationship between metabolic syndrome (MS) as defined by different criteria and the severity of coronary lesions in a sample of diabetic and non-diabetic patients undergoing elective coronary angiography. All patients had blood and urine tests, physical examinations were performed before angiography, and finally they were classified based on three criteria (World Health Organisation-WHO, Adult Treatment Panel-ATP III and International Diabetes Federation-IDF). Eighty-eight patients were diabetic, and 96 patients were non-diabetic. Among all patients, diabetics had significantly higher Gensini scores (P < 0.001). According to WHO criteria (P = 0.005) and IDF criteria (P = 0.015) metabolic syndrome patients had higher Gensini scores, but for ATP III criteria difference was not significant. When we evaluated diabetics and non-diabetics separately, non-diabetic patients with MS had significantly higher scores with WHO definition (P = 0.015) and mildly higher but not significant values with other MS criteria (P = 0.057 for both IDF and ATP III). Neither any one of MS components nor gender revealed significant relationship with coronary disease severity. In our study with a cohort of Turkish patients undergoing elective coronary angiography; we concluded that MS should be taken into consideration, especially in non-diabetic patients.
