The MDRD (Modifying Diet in Renal Disease) formula allows to estimate from a creatinine level, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) whose evaluation makes it possible to assess the renal function, even if the physiology of the kidney is not limited to this process. Impairment of renal function is associated with other risk factors for mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The objective of this study was to evaluate renal function by the MDRD formulation in SCA survivors.

This was a prospective study of the descriptive and analytic type, with a duration of 06 months from April 1 to September 30, 2016, which concerned all SCA survivors who performed serum creatinine.

Of 23 patients included, 52.17% had chronic renal failure. The average age was 60.61 years old, the majority of whom were male. The most common reasons for consultation were chest pain (82.61%), dyspnea (30.43%), followed by facial swelling, hiccups and oliguria with a common frequency of 26.10%. The main risk factors identified were age (100%), male sex (86.96%), high blood pressure (73.9%), physical inactivity (39.13%), tobacco (30.43%), diabetes (30.43%) and overweight (21.74%). In addition, there is no statistically significant relationship between GFR and the ejection fraction (p = 0.538).

DFG estimation by MDRD is one of the methods of choice for detecting early chronic kidney disease, with a view to specifically considering an adequate management strategy.
