Association between elevated red blood cell distribution width and long-term mortality in acute pulmonary embolism

Turk J Med Sci 2018 Apr 30;48(2):318-323. Epub 2018 Apr 30.

Background/aim: The prognostic value of the red cell distribution width (RDW) as a cost-effective and noninvasive test in acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is still unknown. We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of the admission RDW level in the long-term survival of PE patients. Materials and methods: In this registry-based, prospective cohort study, a total of 378 patients (mean age: 60.4 ± 17.11 years, 47.4% female) who presented with acute PE were enrolled. All the clinical data for each patient were obtained from our institutional PE registry. The follow-up was performed at a median time of 17 months. The primary endpoint was death at follow-up. Results: The mean RDW in study patients was 14.67 ± 2.13. The all-cause mortality rate during the follow-up was 15.6% (n = 59). After adjustment for potential confounders, the relationship between RDW and long-term mortality showed a trend of a significant level (hazard ratio: 1.109; 95% CI, 0.998−1.232; P = 0.053). We divided patients into 3 groups based on the European Society of Cardiology’s classification. As we moved from the low risk to the higher risk categories, the mean RDW increased significantly (P = 0.037). Conclusion: It seems there may be an independent association between RDW at presentation and PE mortality within 17 months.

Aims: To evaluate the impact of sex on long-term clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Methods: In a large prospective cohort, 5664 patients (1716 women and 3948 men) who underwent PCI in a tertiary cardiac center between March 2007 and March 2010 were enrolled. Patients were followed up for median of 74.3 months. We compared the occurrence of long-term mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), and repeated revascularization between 2 sexes. Major adverse cardiac events were defined as a composite end point consisting of occurrence of all-cause mortality, nonfatal MI, or target vessel revascularization during follow-up period.

Results: Women were older and had more conventional coronary artery disease risk factors, had smaller vessel diameter, and received drug-eluting stents more frequently than men. On the contrary, men were much more smokers and had higher frequency of acute coronary syndrome, multivessel disease, total coronary occlusion, and lower ejection fraction. After >6 years of follow-up, the all-cause mortality, nonfatal MI, target vessel revascularization, major adverse cardiac events, patient-oriented composite end point, and total repeat PCI were similar between 2 sexes. After adjusting for potential confounders, the total repeat PCI was the only observed difference that was significantly lower in women [11.2% in women vs. 12.4% in men, adjusted subdistributional hazard ratio=0.73 (95% confidence interval, 0.6-0.88); P = 0.001).

Conclusions: During >6 years of follow-up, no significant difference was observed in major clinical outcomes between 2 sexes.
