Title: Oral health in patients with myocardial infarction treated by primary angioplasty


Introduction: The possible connection between oral health and overall health has been a subject of debate among medical practitioners and theoreticians for millenia. The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between oral health and acute coronary syndrome confirmed by coronary angiography. Material and methods: The participants were recruited from patients who had undergone coronary angiography in the Cardiology Department. The study included 128 patients [68 patients in a study group with acute coronary syndrome diagnosed by means of coronary angiography (ACS-group) as well as 60 patients in a control group in whom coronarography revealed no lesions in coronary arteries (H-group]. A detailed clinical dental examination was performed. The level of oral prophylaxis was assessed for both groups. Moreover, the patients’ oral health was assessed on the basis of the dental indices. Furthermore the oral hygiene assessment included a mycological evaluation of the oral cavity and bacteriological and mycological analysis of samples taken from gingival pockets. Results: Oral hygiene in the case of the study group was characterised by irregular dental care and inadequate hygiene procedures. Oral health in the study group was worse to a degree that was statistically significant in all the indices examined, excluding the filled teeth index (F-T). Fungal colonisation of the oral ca ; vity was more prevalent in the study group than in the control group. Conclusion: The oral health of patients from the ACS group was significantly worse compared to the H-group.
