Background: Hypertension and diabetes are well known risk factors of ischemic coronary artery disease (CAD). However, head-to-head comparison results regarding their impact on long-term (10-year) clinical outcomes in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DESs) are rare.

Methods: From April 2003 to May 2015, a total of 2056 ACS patients who had hypertension or diabetes were enrolled. The patients who had both hypertension and diabetes were excluded. Finally, a total of 1344 eligible ACS patients who had hypertension (n=1,108) or diabetes (n=236) were enrolled. To adjust for any potential confounders, a propensity score matched (PSM) analysis was performed using the logistic regression model and 2 propensity-matched groups (236 pairs, n=472, C-statistic = 0.785) were generated. Cumulative major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) up to 10-year were compared between the hypertension group and diabetes group. MACEs was defined as total death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), target lesion revascularization (TLR), target vessel revascularization (TVR), and non-target vessel revascularization (Non-TVR).

Results: Up to 10-year follow-up periods, the cumulative incidence of total death, non-fatal MI, TLR, TVR and non-TVR were not significantly different between the hypertension group and diabetes group. Further, the cumulative incidence of MACEs were also similar between the two groups (Table).

Conclusions: Up to 10-year follow-up periods, hypertension and diabetes seem to be similarly important prognostic risk factors for ACS patients.
