Correlating Red Cell Distribution Width Parameter with Severity of Coronary Artery Disease

Dr. Kasina Chinnam Raju | Dr. Kasina Santosh Kumar

Abstract: BACKGROUND: Non-Communicable Diseases are in the increasing trend owing to urbanization. (1) According to the Global Burden of Disease Study, the age-standardized CVD death rate estimate in India was of 272 per 1, 00, 000 populations compared to global average of 235 per 100000 population. (2) Red Cell Distribution Width has been depicted as an inflammatory marker and also as a novel bio-marker for Coronary Artery Disease. METHODOLOGY: A Cross-Sectional Observation study has been conducted in GSL GENERAL HOSPITAL, Rajahmundry over a period of 18 months from October 2016 to June 2018. A total of 108 inpatients admitted in the CICU with Angina, Chest Discomfort, Dyspnea with or without co-morbid conditions like hypertension, diabetes mellitus and have undergone Coronary Angiography are included in the study. RESULTS: The mean age of the study group is 49.84±10.05 years. The majority of the study population (42.6 %) are of 51-60 years of age group. The present study has 13.88 % of women and 86.11 % of males. Of the study population 45 (41.7 %) are hypertensive, 31 (28.7 %) are diabetic, 57 (52.8 %) are smokers, 52 (48.1 %) are alcoholics. In the present study 64 individuals have single vessel disease, 30 individuals have double vessel disease, 18 individuals have triple vessel disease. CONCLUSION: There has been no significant correlation between Red Cell Distribution Width and Coronary Artery Disease of Single Vessel, Double Vessel or Triple Vessel Disease.
