Although there are still controversies about whether hypertriglyceridemia is an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease, recent analysis reported hypertriglyceridemia and central obesity are independent risk factors for coronary artery disease. However, the prognostic impact of hypertriglyceridemia and central obesity in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are still remained unclear. In this issue, Han et al. investigated the prognostic impact of hypertriglyceridemia and/or central obesity on baseline in AMI patients treated with PCI. In this editorial, we have reviewed the role of hypertriglyceridemia and central obesity on the prognosis after PCI in AMI patients. Although hypertriglyceridemia and central obesity on baseline in this study had no role on the prognosis following PCI in AMI patients, to confirm for these results, further studies on this topic will be warranted in the future.
