CORRELATION OF TRIPLE VESSEL DISEASE WITH TIMI SCORE IN NON-ST SEGMENT ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation of Triple
Vessel Disease with TIMI score in patients of Non ST segment elevation Myocardial Infarction.
Study Design: Descriptive cross sectional study. Place and Duration of Study: Study was
conducted in the Department of Cardiology, Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur from 01-01-
2017 to 31-12-2017. Materials & Methods: A total of 150 patients with NSTEMI of age 20-65
years of either gender were included in the study. TIMI score calculation was done in every
patient and each patient was graded from 0-7. All the patients underwent through coronary
angiography to determine the involvement of coronary arteries. Variables used were TIMI score,
BMI and extent of disease diagnosed by Angiography. The data was collected and analyzed
with SPSS V20. Results: Mean age was 38.70 ± 6.37 years in our study. Out of the 150 patients,
128 (85.33%) were male and 22 (14.67%) were females with ratio of 5.8:1. Mean height was
171.32 ± 14.38m. Mean weight was 81.36 ± 17.62 kg. Mean BMI was 29.75±4.89 kg/m2. Three
vessel involvements were in 98(65.33%) patients, whereas two vessel, one vessel and normal.
Conclusion: The TIMI scoring system is ideal, realistic and practically easy to use at the patient
bedside. It suggests a high frequency (65.33%) of Triple Vessel Disease, in patients with Non-ST
segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), if TIMI score is>4.
