Abstract

Patients with renal impairment have decreased excretion of uric acid, thus being particularly prone to having elevated serum uric acid concentrations. No data are available on the long-term prognostic role of uric acid in patients with STelevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and renal dysfunction, submitted to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We therefore prospectively assessed, in 329 patients with STEMI and renal dysfunction (admission estimated glomerular filtration rate
