BACKGROUND Although a raised plasma homocysteine is a risk factor for vascular disease, it is not known whether it is associated with an adverse cardiac outcome in patients admitted with acute coronary syndromes. We evaluated the relationship between plasma homocysteine and short-term (28 days) and long-term (median 2.5 years) prognosis in acute coronary syndromes. METHODS AND RESULTS We evaluated the relationship of quintiles of homocysteine to fatal and nonfatal coronary disease early (28… CONTINUE READING
