The present study is aimed to investigate the relationship between lipids profile and myocardial infarction. Blood samples (130) were obtained from adult human and divided into three groups. The first group (N:44) divided into male (22) and females (22) as a control group. The second group was male patients (N:46), and the third group was female patients (N: 40) as a reviewer of the Nasiriyah Heart Center.
The current results showed a significant increase (P≤0.05) in the concentrations of troponin (Tn) and creatine kinase (CK) in the second group (patients) compared to the control while, the current results showed a significant increase in Creatine Kinase Myocardial Band (CK-MB) in (male patients) compared with (female patients).
The results showed a significant increase in level of Triglyceride (T.G), Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) and Very Low Density Lipoproteins (VLDL) (P≤0.05) in (male) compared with the control group, while the results showed a non-significant of Total Cholesterol (TC) concentration in (control) and (male patients). Also, there was a significant decrease of High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) level (P≤0.05) in the males compared with the control group. The results showed a significant decrease in TC and LDL level (P≤0.05) in (male patients) compared with the second group (female patients). Also, the results showed that there was non-significant in T.G, HDL and VLDL in males and females patients.
