The aim of this study is to determine risks factor of mortality among patient with post percutaneous coronary intervention. Estimation of post operative mortality risk factor is essential for planning prevention modalities. This is retrospective cohort study based on secondary data extracted from the National Cardiovascular Disease Database (NCVD-ACS and NCVD PCI). Both these registries were interlinked and was further matched to JPN (Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara/National registration Department) to assess mortality among the patients who underwent PCI and all death which occurred in between 2007, 2008 and 2009. There were 630 patients in this studied. Age, history of diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular, renal failure and previous percutaneous coronary intervention were univariately associated with mortality. However based on logistics stepwise method, only age and history of renal failure had showed statistically significant and sizeable odds ratio in predicting the patient died of coronary death. Older age and renal failure are the predicting factors for mortality among patients with post percutaneous coronary intervention.
