Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the main
cause of death in the world. Major adverse
cardiovascular events (MACE) show a combination of
various side effects associated with the cardiovascular
system that can lead to fatal outcomes for CHD.
Predictors of the occurrence of coronary artery disease
(CAD) is an important topic and much to be done, has an
important role in the optimal management of acute
coronary disease syndrome (ACS) in the early stages of
hospitalization. The ratio of triglycerides to high-density
lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is a strong predictor of
myocardial infarction. This study was conducted to
assess whether the triglyceride/HDL-C ratio could
predict major adverse cardiovascular events (MCE) in
ACS patients 30 days after coronary revascularization.
Methods: This study is a retrospective analytical
observational study on 120 patients with a diagnosis of
ACS in the period 1 January 2019-31 December 2019 at
H. Adam Malik Hospital Medan. All patients involved
had performed coronary revascularization, and recorded
patient characteristics, risk factors, drug consumption
history, and laboratory results, especially lipid profiles
from the patient's medical record. Follow-up was
performed for 30 days after coronary revascularization.
Statistical tests were conducted to assess the relationship
