OBJECTIVE: We discussed the diagnostic value of joint detection of homocysteine (HCY) and red blood cell volume distribution width variable coefficient on acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
PATIENTS AND METHODS: We collected 300 coronary heart disease cases, among which there were 121 cases of stenocardia, 65 cases of ischemic heart failure, and 114 cases of AMI at the Department of Cardiology of our hospital during the period from January 2012 to June 2013. At the same time, we took 100 normal physical examinees as the control group, used the full-automatic cell-analyzer and the immunization to measure HCY and red blood cell distribution width (RDW) CV respectively and analyze their value in diagnosing AMI.
RESULTS: The differences among the four groups of HCY and RDW CV were statistically significant (p < 0.05). The HCY and RDW CV level in the AMI group were significantly higher than those of the other three groups (p < 0.05); the differences between the positive diagnosis rate of HCY, the RDW CV and their joint diagnosis in the AMI group were statistically significant (p < 0.05) while the differences between the positive diagnosis rate of HCY, the RDW CV and their joint diagnosis in the control group were not statistically significant (p > 0.05). The detection sensitivity and specificity of HCY alone were respectively 68.42% and 86.00% with those of the RDW CV alone being 64.91% and 84.00%. The joint detection sensitivity and specificity were 83.33% and 93.00%, statistically different (p < 0.05). The concordance rate, the positive predictive value and the negative predictive value were 87.85%, 93.14% and 83.04%, respectively.
CONCLUSIONS: The HCY and RDW CV joint diagnosis of AMI had relatively high sensitivity, specificity, concordance rate, positive predictive value and negative predictive value.Free PDF Download
