Renal dysfunction is a significant risk factor in the prognosis of patients with cardiovascular diseases. We sought to determine the relationship between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) values and in-hospital mortality in Japanese acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients. A total of 2266 consecutive AMI patients admitted to 22 hospitals in Hokkaido were registered. The eGFR values were determined using the following equation: eGFR=194 × (serum creatinine)−1.094 × (age)−0.287 ( × 0… CONTINUE READING
