Background and Objective: Acute myocardial infarction is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity across the world. Acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation has been considered a common cardiac emergency and has considerable morbidity and mortality. The role of uric acid (UA) in the mortality rate of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) was examined in the present study. Materials and Methods: In this prospective study, 107 patients diagnosed with STEMI aged 18 years and older in the coronary care unit at Azadi Teaching Hospital, Duhok, Iraq from April 20, 2017 to December 20, 2017 were followed up for 1 month to determine the 30-day mortality in relation to serum UA level. Results: The mean age of patients was 55.27±13.59 years. The inferior type of STEMI was the most prevalent one among the patients (45.1%). Serum UA was not significantly different in both the groups (P > 0.05). Conclusion: The study did not show UA as a risk factor for mortality in patients with STEMI.
