It has been object of interest in the last yearsdue to their high prevalence in healthy populations as in those with a historyof cardiovascular affections.Objectives To determine the association of the metabolic syndrome with the occurrenceof adverse coronary events.Method A prospective study in which 228 dyslipidemic patients from the Institute ofCardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery were included, was carried out. Thesubjects were assigned to form two groups: patients that gathered criteria formetabolic syndrome and patients without it. The incidence of coronary eventswas compared during five years. For the comparison of quantitative and qualitativevariables it was used the test of student t and Chi2 respectively. TheOdss Ratio was calculated to determine the association, and the survival freeof events was determined by means of Kaplan-Meier test. Statistically differenceswere considered significant with a value of p
