Introduction & Objective: Unstable angina is in the center of spectrum from chronic stable angina to acute myocardial infarction. Due to high prevalence of unstable angina, it is important to find a factor that predicts prognosis and management modality. We decided to measure CRP level for the items that mentioned above.

Materials & Methods: This study was a cross-sectional study that 138 patients who were admitted with unstable angina in the CCU and cardiac ward of Ekbatan Hospital in Hamedan were considered for measuring CRP level. Age, sex, period of disease, and left ventricular ejection fraction percentile were worked out. After quantitative CRP measuring and 14 days follow up, the questionnaire was completed.

Results: CRP levels were 116.3 and 124.3 ng/ml in the patients with and without cardiovascular events (whole events) respectively during 14 days follow up. Recurrent unstable angina, myocardial infarction and mortality rate were higher in the patients with elevated level of CRP but need to perform coronary angiography was lower.

Conclusion: CRP level had no correlation with occurrence of cardiovascular events (whole events) during 14 days follow up.
