Abstract:

Our recent studies have shown that to investigate the diagnostic  role of  vitamin D in  non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients.  Myocardial infarction is the catastrophic frequently fatal form of ischemic heart disease that results from precipitous reduction or arrest of a significant portion of the coronary flow. Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate. In humans, the most important related compounds of vitamin D are vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.  Acute myocardial infarction was studied in three groups depends on with or without associated complications. in all three groups, mean serum  levels of Vitamin D is lower than the mean serum control group.  The serum levels of Vitamin D were significantly decreased in STEMI and NSTEMI patients compared with control normal subjects   Vitamin D is an useful index, not only in the diagnosis and prognosis, but also in some critical situations of taking some important decision.

Keywords: Vitamin D,ST Segment elevation Myocardial infarction, Non ST Segment elevation ,Myocardial nfarction and Myocardial Infarction.
