Abstractthe present study was conducted to verify the changes of some liver parameters in male
and female patients of myocardial infarction (MI) and determine the differences between
male and female. To achieve this aim, 40 male patients of MI,20 female patients of MI,
35 healthy subjects (control group) were subjected to the study. The results showed significant
(p< 0.005) increase of AST activity in male patients of MI and somewhat less (p <0.05) in
female patients of MI when compared with those of the healthy individuals. The measurement of
serum bilirubin concentration indicated significant (p< 0.05) rise of total and unconjugated
fractions in male patients of MI, while in female patients total and unconjugated bilirubin were
didn't show any significant when compared with those of the healthy subjects, but conjugated
bilirubin was significant increase (p<0.01). The estimation of serum albumin concentration
pointed out significant (p< 0.05) decrease in male patients of MI and somewhat less (p< 0.01) in
female patients of MI in comparison with those of the healthy individuals.
Conclusion: From this study we obtained the sex has effect on the alteration of liver parameters
level in patients with myocardial infarction.
