Titel:
Comparative prognostic value of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and C-reactive protein in patients with stable coronary artery disease treated with percutaneous coronary intervention and chronic statin therapy. 
Abstract:
The comparative prognostic value of low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and statin therapy is poorly investigated.The study included 7595 patients with stable CAD treated with PCI. Based on a cut-off of 100mg/dl for LDL-C and 3mg/L for CRP, patients were divided into 4 groups: patients with LDL-C<=100mg/dl and CRP<=3mg/L (n=2795); patients with LDL-C>100mg/dl and CRP<=3mg/L (n=2091); patients with LDL-C<=100mg/dl and CRP>3mg/L (n=1296); and patients with LDL-C>100mg/dl and CRP>3mg/L (n=1413). Statins at discharge were prescribed in all patients. The primary outcome was 1-year all-cause mortality.One-year mortality was 2.1% (160 deaths): 1.2% (33 deaths) among patients with LDL-C<=100mg/dl and CRP<=3mg/L, 1.4% (28 deaths) among patients with LDL-C>100mg/dl and CRP<=3mg/L, 4.8% (60 deaths) among patients with LDL-C<=100mg/dl and CRP>3mg/L and 2.9% (39 deaths) among patients with LDL-C>100mg/dl and CRP>3mg/L (P<0.001). After adjustment, CRP (hazard ratio [HR]=1.64, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.33-2.02, for 1 standard deviation increase in the logarithmic scale) but not LDL-C (HR=1.03 [0.90-1.17], for 30mg/dl increase) showed an independent association with 1-year mortality. CRP (P=0.045) but not LDL-C (P=0.294) increased the discriminatory power of multivariable model for prediction of mortality.In patients with stable CAD treated with PCI and statin therapy, CRP but not LDL-C was independently associated with increased risk of 1-year mortality.
