Extract

Introduction: Cardiovascular disease is common comorbidity in COPD and associated with mortality. Prevalence of coronary artery diseases (CAD) in COPD with low risk of exacerbation and more symptoms (GOLD B) and the associations with serum N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) were investigated in tertiary care center Thailand.

Methods: Cross sectional study was conducted in 2013. GOLD B COPD patients were defined by CAT ≥10 and FEV1 ≥ 50% predicted with < 2 exacerbations in the past year. The CAD was defined by either history of diagnosed or treated coronary artery diseases (myocardial infarction or revascularization) or coronary stenosis detected by CT angiography or positive cardiac stress imaging. The serum NT-proBNP and hs-CRP were measured.
