Ayesha Pervaiz, Sundas Saeed and Muhammad Ahmad*

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To determine the frequency of cases with raised BMI in cases of acute MI. Material and methods: This cross-sectional study was done at Emergency department of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Lahore during January to June 2018. The cases admitted for acute MI were included irrespective of the gender and age groups. The diagnosis of acute MI was made on the basis of ST-T changes (ST elevation, depression or t wave inversion) with positive troponin T test. The BMI was calculated by dividing the weigh in kg and dividing by height in meters2). Raised BMI was labelled as yes when the BMI was more than 25 kg/m2. Results: In this study, the mean age of the cases was 57.47±10.23 years and there were 62% males and 38% females out of 100 cases. DM was observed in 23% and HTN in 34% of the cases. raised BMI was seen in 41 (41%) of the cases. there was no significant difference in terms of HTN while this was significantly high in cases that had DM where this was seen in 17 (73.91%) of the cases with p = 0.001. There was also no association of raised BMI with type of myocardial infarction with p= 0.96. Conclusion; Raised BMI is seen significantly high in cases of DM presenting with acute MI.
