Recently, accumulated studies have found that RDW was closely associated with the incidence, diagnosis, and prognosis of various cardiovascular diseases. In the present review, the relationships between RDW and heart failure, acute myocardial infarction…show more content…
It is noteworthy that, in addition to its discovery RDW prognosis of patients with heart failure on admission, there are found changes RDW during hospitalization cases [7], as well as discharge RDW test results [13,16] and also the prognosis of heart failure related. These studies were meta-analysis [19] showed that: RDW increased per unit (ie 1%), patients with all-cause mortality risk increased 1.1 times, but there are between existing research publication bias, indicating the existing research may exaggerate RDW prognostic value in heart failure. In addition to heart failure as a prognostic factor, RDW can also serve as a risk factor for heart failure. For example Borné et al [20] of 26 784 community residents for more than 10 years of follow-up, observed the research object of baseline RDW and the relationship between the cardiovascular events in the future. The researchers found that the correction for blood pressure, smoking, lipoprotein and other known risk factors for cardiovascular disease, RDW still closely related to the occurrence of heart failure risk, the higher performance for baseline RDW, the individual risk of future heart failure also higher. Tonelli et al [21] of 4111 patients with CHD were 6 years of follow-up found that in patients with coronary heart disease, RDW prompted increased risk in patients
