Introduction: Myocardial infarction is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in present days. Sometimes, especially in early period, features of MI may not be fully developed. Like chest pain is the most common presenting symptom in majority of the patients with MI. Diagnosis is based on ECG findings and result of Serum cardiac markers.
Objectives: The objective of the study is to evaluate level of serum phosphorus and lipid profile in MI patients.
Materials and Method: This study Includes 70 patients of Acute Myocardial infarction of age group 30-65 years along with 70 age and sex matched healthy controls. Fasting blood samples was taken from all participants to measure serum phosphorus and lipid profile then comparison was done between patients group and control group to see the difference of significant by calculating P- value.
Results: The mean concentration of serum Phosphorus(mg/dl) in MI patients is 3.97 ±1.51 while in control group it is 2.4±0.4. Similarly the mean concentration of S.Cholesterol(mg/dl), S.Triglyceride(mg/dl), S.HDL(mg/dl), S.LDL(mg/dl), S.VLDL(mg/dl) is 169.9±24.4, 119.9±36.9, 41.0±9.57, 108.8±23.4, 20.3±7.37 in control group and in MI patients it is 187.3±40.3, 140.4±69.11, 33.6±10.6, 129.1±30.2, 27.0±16.4 respectively.
Conclusion: serum phosphorus level might be used as a possible marker for the diagnosis of the risk of similarity to lipid profile and/or other risk factors alteration of the serum phosphorus level is recently being considered as one of the foretelling markers for the severity of cardiovascular diseases.
