    Background: Hyperuricemia (HUA) is associated with poor prognosis in patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI). However, its prognostic value in patients with AMI and coexisting Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is not clear. Methods: We retrospectively studied patients admitted to three hospitals in Beijing, China with the diagnoses of both AMI and AF at discharge/death. HUA was defined as serum uric acid levels ≥ 6.8 mg/dl. The endpoint of the study was in-hospital all-cause mortality. The relationship between HUA and the endpoint was analyzed by multivariate logistic regression. Subgroup analyses were done in patients categorized by sex and in those who underwent Coronary Angio Graphy (CAG). Results: After excluding those with missing data, a total of 651 patients were included in the study with the m.. View More»
