Serum uric acid (SUA) is linked to various diseases but its association with the myocardial infarction(MI) has led physician to find whether it can be used in diagnosing MI ,this study was to assess and find clinical value of SUA in MI. Methods: This prospective study was studied in patients of MI willing to give informed consents and was diagnosed on the basis clinical history electrocardiography, troponin I level from august 2017 to September 2019.The relationship between troponin I level and

Results: The mean age of the patient who took part in the study was 57.31±12.016 years and for the control group was48.99±13.39 years For Myocardial group mean value of serum uric acid (mg/dl) is 6.6±1.6 vs.3.9±0.31 in control group( p value is <0.001) The mean serum uric acid in NSTEMI (6.77± 1.70mg/dl) was higher than STEMI (6.52± 1.57mg/dl) but difference was not statistically significant (p=0.628). Conclusion: SUA is significantly raised in MI patients and is positively correlated with Troponin level.
