Dr. Krishna Chaitanya K, Dr. B. Sarath Kumar Reddy, Dr. G. Vijaya Kumar

Abstract :

Introduction: Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of mortality among postmenopausal women in our country. It has been recognized that women are protected from CAD prior to menopause due to estrogen action. The most common cause of CHD is the development of atherosclerosis. This condition is multifactorial in origin, but dyslipidemia has been identified as a major risk factor. Dyslipidemia is one of the important modifiable risk factors in CHD. Objectives: To study the prevalence of dyslipidemia and type of lipid abnormalities in postmenopausal women with acute myocardial infarction. Methods: 50 postmenopausal women admitted to ICU for acute Myocardial Infarction in Santhiram medical college & General Hospital.Results: Out of 50 patients, 30 were already diagnosed with dyslipidemia, 20 were newly diagnosed with dyslipidemia. Twenty-eight patients were having raised Total cholesterol, 20 were having raised triglycerides, 36 patients were having raised LDL-C, and 36 were having HDL-C less than 50mg/dl.Conclusion: Dyslipidemia was observed in most of the postmenopausal women, in that increased LDL-C levels and decreased HDL-C was the most predominant one. Lifestyle modifications and early initiation of statin therapy in postmenopausal women would increase the cardiovascular benefits.
