Impact of Asymmetric Dimethylarginine on Mortality After Acute Myocardial Infarction

Abstract : Objective-Asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous competitive inhibitor of nitric oxide (NO) synthases. From a prospective cohort of patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), we aimed to analyze the predictive value of circulating ADMA concentrations on prognosis. Methods and Results-Blood samples from 249 consecutive patients hospitalized for acute MI Ͻ24 hours were taken on admission. Serum levels of ADMA and its stereoisomer, symmetrical dimethylarginine (SDMA), were determined using high-performance liquid chromatography. The independent predictors of ADMA were glomerular filtration rate, female sex, and SDMA (R 2 ϭ0. 25). Baseline ADMA levels were higher in patients who had died than in patients who were alive at 1 year follow-up (1.23 [0.98 to 1.56] versus 0.95 [0.77 to 1.20] mol/L, PϽ0.001). By Cox multivariate analysis, the higher tertile of ADMA (median [interquartile range]: 1.45 [1.24 to 1.70] mol/L) was a predictor for mortality (Hazard Ratio [95% CI], 4.83 [1.59 to 14.71]), when compared to lower tertiles, even when adjusted for potential confounders, such as acute therapy, biological, and clinical factors. Conclusion-Our study suggests that the baseline ADMA level has a strong prognostic value for mortality after MI, beyond traditional risk factors and biomarkers.
