ABSTRACT

Aim of the study was to evaluate the contribution of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in predicting risk of major cardiovascular events by cumulative proportion surviving depending on the SYNTAX score II in patients with stable coronary heart disease. Materials and methods: Patients with stable coronary heart disease with and without nonalcoholic fatty liver disease underwent clinical examinations, electrocardiography, echocardiography, liver elastography, liver ultrasound, evaluation of the liver functional state. Then SYNTAX score I and II were calculated to all patients. Results: The two-year death-free survival (100.00% vs. 60.00%; P = 0.0165), and a repeated nonfatal myocardial infarction-free survival (85.36% vs. 33.33%; P = 0.0045), and a stroke-free survival (88.95% vs. 37.85%; P = 0.0021), and a repeated revascularization-free survival (85.83% vs. 31.81%; P = 0.0006) in patients with SS II ≥29 and without nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were significant higher than in those with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Conclusions: the long-term prognosis of the patients with stable coronary heart disease is a most prognostically unfavorable on the background of SYNTAX score II ≥29 and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis combination.
