Abstract

The objectives of the study were to observe the demographic and socioeconomic status, frequency of Coronary Artery Disease in patients undergoing Coronary Angiography, to study the prevalence of vessels involved in Coronary Artery Disease and to find out the association of risk factors involved in pathogenesis of Coronary Artery Disease. Study was conducted at Sheikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore over a period of here months.The study design was analytical Cross Sectional Study. All the patients undergoing Coronary Angiography were taken as samples. A Consecutive sampling technique was used to collect data.200 patients were included in study. Mean age of the patients in this study was 38±1.041. Out of total 200 patients, 71( 36%) were females and 129 (64%)were males. 193(96.5%) were Married, 115(57.5%) were Poor, 104(52%) had pain on left side, 75(37.5%) had pressure on chest, 149 (74.5%) had sweating, 72 (36%) are overweight, 86(43%) are obese,107(53.5%) had hypertension, 120(60%) were not in habit of smoking. There was statistically significant association of coronary artery disease with contributing factors like smoking (p-value= 0.009), DM (p-value=0.027), hypertension( 0.001), hyperlipidemia( p-value= 0.015), BMI (p-value= 0.029). 185(92.5%) were having varying degree of coronary stenosis on angiogram, 11(5.5%) had left main coronary stem disease, 98(49.0%) had triple vessel disease, 43(21.5%) had double vessel disease while 33(16.5%) had single vessel disease. 61(30.5%) were referred for coronary artery bypass grafting, 66(33.0%) were offered coronary angioplasty, 51 (25.5% were considered appropriate for medical therapy, 6 (3.0%) sent for radionuclide studies to asses the benfit of any surgical or medical intervention. Pacemaker implantation was entailed in 1 (0.5%) due to complete heart block.
