Abstract

AbstrakSepsis adalah respons sistemik terhadap infeksi dan terutama terjadi pada pneumonia. Sepsis dapat menyebabkan komplikasi disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) yang dibedakan menjadi compensated dan decompensated DIC. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk menentukan apakah nilai prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), kadar fibrinogen, dan D-dimer dapat digunakan sebagai prediktor decompensated DIC pada penderita sepsis. Penelitian dilakukan di Laboratorium Patologi Klinik Rumah Sakit Hasan Sadikin Bandung mulai September 2008 sampai Juni 2010. Subjek penelitian adalah penderita sepsis yang disebabkan pneumonia. Nilai PT, aPTT, kadar fibrinogen, dan D-dimer semua subjek sepsis dicatat kemudian dilakukan pengamatan sampai subjek dinyatakan mengalami decompensated atau non-decompensated DIC; selanjutnya dilakukan analisis nilai PT, aPTT, kadar fibrinogen, dan D-dimer pada kelompok decompensated dan non-decompensated DIC. Penelitian menggunakan rancangan cohort. Subjek berjumlah 39 orang (58%) penderita sepsis dengan luaran decompensated DIC dan 28 orang (42%) penderita sepsis dengan luaran non-decompensated DIC. Dari parameter hemostasis yang diperiksa, didapatkan bahwa nilai PT, aPTT, dan fibrinogen merupakan prediktor decompensated DIC pada penderita sepsis dengan risiko relatif (RR) masing-masing 240,500; 7,157; dan 6,421. Simpulan, prothrombin time, aPTT, dan fibrinogen merupakan pemeriksaan untuk mengetahui aktivasi koagulasi. Parameter hemostasis yang merupakan prediktor decompensated DIC pada penderita sepsis adalah nilai PT dan aPTT yang memendek serta kadar fibrinogen yang meningkat.

Sepsis can cause complications such as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) which can be divided into compensated and decompensated DIC. The purpose of this study was to assess whether the value of prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), fibrinogen, and D-dimer levels can be used as predictors of decompensated DIC in sepsis patients. This study was conducted at the Laboratory of Clinical Pathology Rumah Sakit Hasan Sadikin Bandung since September 2008 to June 2010. Subjects were patients with sepsis caused by pneumonia. PT and aPTT values, fibrinogen, and D-dimer levels was recorded from all sepsis patients then patients were observed until diagnosed decompensated or non-decompensated DIC, then the value of PT, aPTT, fibrinogen and D-dimer levels in the group of decompensated DIC and non-decompensated DIC were analysed. This study used cohort design. Subjects were 39 sepsis patients (58%) with outcome decompensated DIC and 28 sepsis patients (42%) with outcome non-decompensated DIC. From the hemostasis parameter test out, it was found that PT, aPTT, and fibrinogen were the predictor of decompensated DIC in patients with sepsis with relative risk 240.500, 7.157, and 6.421; respectively. Conclusions, prothrombin time, aPTT, fibrinogen are the test to know coagulation activation. Hemostasis parameter to predict decompensated DIC in sepsis patients are the shorten PT, aPTT, and the increased fibrinogen.

Abstract

Diabetes melitus (DM) tipe 2 merupakan diabetes yang disebabkan oleh resistensi insulin dan atau gangguan sekresi insulin sehingga menyebabkan hiperglikemia yang merupakan penyebab disfungsi endotel. Disfungsi endotel merupakan proses awal aterosklerosis dan merupakan salah satu faktor risiko yang menyebabkan penyakit jantung koroner (PJK). Sampai saat ini angiografi koroner digunakan sebagai baku emas PJK. Pemeriksaan osteoprotegerin (OPG) merupakan pemeriksaan alternatif sebagai penanda disfungsi endotel, kurang invasif, lebih dini, dan murah. Osteoprotegerin berhubungan dengan perkembangan plak arteri pada penderita DM tipe 2. Tujuan penelitian ini mengetahui perbedaan kadar OPG dalam serum penderita DM tipe 2 tanpa dan dengan PJK. Penelitian dilakukan pada September–Desember 2012 di Poliklinik Endokrin dan Instalasi Gawat Darurat RSUP Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung. Subjek penelitian sebanyak 102 orang, 51 orang penderita telah didiagnosis oleh klinisi sebagai penderita DM tipe 2 dengan PJK dan 51 orang penderita DM tipe 2 tanpa PJK, berusia 35–75 tahun. Pemeriksaan OPG menggunakan metode enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Bentuk penelitian adalah observasional komparatif dengan rancangan penelitian studi perbandingan potong lintang. Analisis statistik menggunakan uji Shapiro Wilk’s, independent T, dan Mann Whitney. Nilai median kadar OPG serum untuk penderita DM tipe 2 dengan PJK lebih tinggi, yaitu sebesar 6,1 pmol/L dan penderita DM tipe 2 tanpa PJK, yaitu sebesar 2,6 pmol/L (p=0.0001). Simpulan, terdapat perbedaan kadar OPG serum antara kelompok DM tipe 2 tanpa dan dengan PJK. [MKB. 2015;47(4):218–23]Kata kunci: Disfungsi endotel, DM tipe 2, osteoprotegerinDifferences of Osteoprotegerin Levels in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus with and without Coronary Arterial DiseaseAbstractType 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is caused by insulin resistance and/or impaired insulin secretion, thus causing hyperglycemia leading to endothelial dysfunction. Endothelial dysfunction is an early process of atherosclerosis and is one of the risk factors for coronary arterial disease (CAD). Currently, coronary angiography is used as the gold standard for diagnosing CAD. Examination of osteoprotegerin (OPG) is an alternative assay for endothelial dysfunction marker which is less invasive, has the ability to detect earlier, and less expensive. Osteoprotegerin is associated with the development of arterial plaque in patients with type 2 DM. The aim of this study was to determine the differences in serum OPG levels in patients with type 2 DM with and without CAD. The study was conducted in September–December 2012 in the Endocrine Clinic and Emergency Unit of Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Bandung on 102 patients aged between 35–75 years, with 51 subjects type 2 DM patients with CAD and 51 subjects with type 2 DM without CAD, both diagnosed by clinician. The method used was, OPG enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) examination method. The study was an observational cross-sectional comparative study. Statistical analysis was performed using normality test with Shapiro Wilk’s, independent T and Mann Whitney test. The median value for patients with type 2 DM with CAD equaled to 6.1 pmol/L and the value for type 2 diabetic patients without CAD was 2.6 pmol/L. In this study, the OPG levels obtained in patients type 2 DM with CAD were higher than those without CAD. In conclusion, there is a significant difference in OPG levels between type 2 DM with and without CAD groups.
