Introduction: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between all-cause mortality and markers of hematological mortality in post-procedure follow-up of patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) due to severe left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease.

Patients and Methods: Between January 2015 and August 2019, a retrospective cohort study was performed based on the data of 166 consecutive patients (43 females, 123 males) who were diagnosed with severe LMCA disease as a result of coronary angiography performed in our clinic. The study population was followed median 631.00 (270.75-1172.00) days, was divided into two groups as deceased (group 1, n= 42, 25.3%) and living (group 2, n= 124, 74.6%).

Results: Fasting blood glucose, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), uric acid, C-reactive Protein (CRP)/Albumin ratio, leukocyte, neutrophil, erythrocyte distribution width percentage (RDW) values were found to be higher (p< 0.05) and triglyceride, total protein, albumin, hemoglobin, hematocrit values were lower in the deceased group (p< 0.05). In logistic regression analysis, statistical significance of all of these parameters disappeared.

Conclusion: Advanced age, presence of chronic renal failure (CRF), FBS, BUN, creatinine, AST, ALT, uric acid, CRP/Albumin ratio, leukocyte, and neutrophil height may be helpful in determining increased mortality risk after percutaneous LMCA interventions.
