Euthyroid sick syndrome as a prognostic marker in Acute Coronary Syndrome.
Aim: To study the prevalence of euthyroid sick syndrome in acute coronary syndrome and its effect on complications and mortality of ACS. Methods: Total 122 patients of ACS were included as per inclusion and exclusion criteria. Thyroid functions were done at day 1, day 3 and in between day 7 to day 30 of the admission. Patients were assessed for in hospital complications of ACS and death.Results: Total 6 patients (5%) were found to have euthyroid sick syndrome. These patients had statistically significant association with the ACS related complications like arrhythmias, cardiogenic shock and heart failure (p=0.000) and poor left ventricular dysfunction (p = 0.00036). The association of ESS and in hospital mortality was also found to be statistically significant (p=0.0000) Conclusion: The cases of Euthyroid sick syndrome has significant statistical association with in-hospital complications and mortality.
