Abstract: Background: Microalbuminuria has been recently found to be a marker of atherogenesis. It is associated with various risk factors of atherogenesis and damage of the vascular endothelium. There have been few studies in which it has been found that mortality in cardiovascular disease are increased with microalbuminuria. Urine is collected over 24 hours and this study has similar sensitivity as urinary albumin creatinine ratio. A urinary albumin to creatinine ratio is as sensitive as a 24 hours urine study even though it itself is a gold standard test. In patients with CAD other factors have been explored then urinary albumin has been recently identified. Objectives: To assess correlation between urinary albumin creatinine ratio with coronary artery disease and to correlate Urinary albumin creatinine ratio (UACR) with Framingham heart study Cardiovascular disease (FHS-CVD) score in all patients of coronary artery disease. Methodology: In this study which is cross sectional, Subjects to be included in the study will be explained regarding the study and proper consent will be obtained. A random urine sample will be collected. Urinary albumin concentration will be measured by auto analyser and urine albumin creatinine ratio will be calculated. The values of the same will be recorded and will be statistically analysed Expected Result: As per previous studies in Turkish population, we are expecting result suggestive of positive relationship between UACR with coronary artery disease.
