Abstract: AIM: We intended to investigate the association of bilirubin with total mortality in patients with chronic total coronary occlusion (CTO).
METHODS: We included 172 patients who underwent coronary angiography due to stable angina pectoris and had CTO. We checked the viability of patients after 9 years of follow-up.
RESULTS: Direct bilirubin levels were significantly lower in the non-viable group. We revealed age (OR = 1.045, 95% C.I: 1.009‒1.083; p = 0.015) and direct bilirubin concentrations (OR = 0.029, 95% C.I: 0.002‒0.435; p = 0.029) as independent predictors of mortality. Direct bilirubin value of > 0.2 mg/dL was associated with decreased mortality with a sensitivity of 85 %, and a specificity of 46 %.
CONCLUSION: Serum direct bilirubin concentrations independently predict total mortality in patients with chronic total occlusion over 9 years of follow-up (Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Ref. 23).
