Vitamin D plasma levels and in-hospital and 1-year outcomes in acute coronary syndromes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Deficiency in 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D), the main circulating form of vitamin D in blood, could be involved in the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). To date, however, the possible prognostic relevance of 25 (OH)D deficiency in ACS patients remains poorly defined. The purpose of this prospective study was to assess the association between 25 (OH)D levels, at hospital admission, with in-hospital and 1-year morbidity and mortality in an unselected cohort of ACS patients. We measured 25 (OH)D in 814 ACS patients at hospital presentation. Vitamin D serum levels >30ng/mL were considered as normal; levels between 29 and 21ng/mL were classified as insufficiency, and levels
