Abstract: OBJECTIVES: Coronary artery disease (CAD) remains a leading cause of death in elderly patients. Recently, novel lipoproteins- Atherogenic Index of Plasma (AIP), Atherogenic Coefficient (AC) and Lipoprotein Combine Index (LCI) have been suggested as CAD risk factors; their clinical usefulness, however, remains unknown. The aim of the study was to assess the predictive value of AIP, AC and LCI concerning incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and all-cause mortality in 1-year follow-up.
METHODS: For the study, 1,083 patients, aged 60 or older, with NSTEMI were enrolled and divided into two groups: young-old and old-old.
RESULTS: MACE occurred in 11.8 % of the patients; LCI showed a borderline significance, but only in univariate analysis. Analysis in groups revealed ambiguous results. None of the examined indices was a predictor of MACE in the young-old group whereas all three of them were significant, but negative predictors in the old-old group. Finally, all-cause mortality at follow-up was 14.9 %. AC predicted 1-year mortality in the whole study population (OR = 1.1 (95% CI: 1–1.2; p = 0.02), but was insignificant in the multivariable model. Additionally, it was an independent predictor in the old-old group, but with borderline significance (OR = 1.14 (95% CI: 1–1.3, p = 0.036).
CONCLUSIONS: AIP, AC and LCI should not be used as predictors of MACE and 1-year mortality among elderly patients with NSTEMI (Tab. 5, Ref. 23).
