Data was entered and analyzed using SPSS version 25.

Results: In this study 303 patients were enrolled. Age of the patients ranged from 40 to 70 years with mean age 59.28±12.33 years. 228 (75.2%) participants were male.

The spearman correlation coefficient “r” value between serum uric acid and CAD was 0.498 showing moderately strong correlation. Hyperuricemia was observed in 56.8% patients with syntax score ≥33 as compared to 49.1% and 47.4% patients with syntax score 23-32 and 0-22 respectively.
