Comparison of the extent and severity of coronary artery disease in patients with acute myocardial infarction with and without microalbuminuria

      Abstract

      The extent and severity of coronary atherosclerosis were compared between 43 microalbuminuric and 87 normoalbuminuric nondiabetic patients with acute myocardial infarction. Patients with microalbuminuria had significantly greater scores of the severity (Gensini score) and extent (Hamsten score) of coronary artery disease (p <0.001).
