BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Awareness of the prevalence of modifiable cardiovascular risk factors and attempts to correct and control it can be effective in reducing the chance of advanced cardiovascular disease that leads to complicated surgical procedures. Since the risk factors of advanced heart disease in northern Iran are unclear, this study was conducted to evaluate the risk factors of coronary artery disease in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery in Babol, northern Iran.
METHODS: This cross-sectional study was performed on 460 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 2015 in Ayatollah Rohani Hospital in Babol. The modifiable risk factors of coronary heart disease were evaluated according to the data in medical records of patients.
FINDINGS: The prevalence of hypertension in the total samples was 56.74% (261 patients), the prevalence of hyperlipidemia was 32.16% (150 patients) and the prevalence of diabetes was 38.91% (179 patients). 31.09% (143 patients) had history of myocardial infarction in the past. 12.6% (58 patients) were smokers, all of whom were male. In terms of gender distribution, 53% (244 patients) were male and 47% (216 patients) were female. The mean age of the patients was 61.4±9.72 years and the mean weight of the patients was 68±12.57 kg. In terms of body mass index, the total mean was 26.3±4.25.
CONCLUSION: According to the results of this study, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity are significantly common in the population of cardiac patients in Babol. The prevalence of risk factors in women is higher. Therefore, timely screening and precise monitoring of these isuues can be important in preventing long-term complications.
