An Evaluation of Comparative Study of Serum Ferritin Levels in Myocardial Infraction Cases
Serum Ferritin Levels in Myocardial Infraction
Background: MIs occur mostly due to coronary artery disease. The major risk factors of MIs are high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, lack of exercise, obesity, high blood cholesterol, poor diet and excessive alcohol intake. MI usually involves the complete blockage of a coronary artery. Subjects and Methods: This study conducted in the department of cardiology & biochemistry in LPS institute of cardiology, GSVM medical college ,Kanpur.. The population of this case – control study was 50 for each group. The duration of study was over a period of one year. Results: We were found that 42% patients were belongs to 41-50 age group in case group, whereas in control group 52% followed by other age group. In this study we showed association of acute myocardial infraction with high serum ferritin. Conclusion: To reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality it is essential to monitor serum ferritin levels regularly.
