Abstract

Background & Aims: Ischemic heart disease is the most common reason of mortality and morbidity and has imposed the high costs to industrialized countries. It seems to be the most common reason of death in the world by 2020. There are different risk factors for ischemic heart disease that can be divided to two large groups, hereditary and immutable risk factors like age, sex, family history and mutable risk factors like obesity, smocking, hypertension, dyslipidemia and DM. Another risk factor for coronary artery disease is iron stores in body. Theoretically it has been discussed about the role of Iron stores in causing free radicals and lipid peroxidation and atherosclerosis for years.

Materials & Methods: This is a cross sectional survey and data is collected by the interviews, examination and laboratory results from patients who had referred to Shahid Taleghany hospital in Urmia, Iran for coronary artery angiography.

Results: Accordingly, 68 men (59.6%) and 46 female (40.4) were entered. 50 (43.9%) had hypertention, 44 (38.6%) were smoker and 83 (72.8%) were negative for IHD family history. The mean age, weight, height, and BMI were 58.25±9.63, 79.09±11.62, 164.25±10.23, 29.48±4.69, respectively. There was coronary artery disease in 91 patients that 37 (32.5%) had one vessel, 20 (17.5%) had two vessels and 34 (29.8%) had three vessels atherosclerosis. 56 (53.3%) patients had ferritin below 200 (22 men and 34 female).

Conclusion: There is no significant correlation between coronary artery disease and the level of ferritin in both sexes. As well, there is no significant correlation between coronary artery disease and serum iron level of patients.
