Methods 165 patients with acute cerebral infarction from October 2010 to July 2011 in our hospital were screened for carotid plaque by duplex color Doppler and firstly classified into no plaque group n = 47 and plaque group n = 118 secondly divided into no plaque group n = 47 stable plaque group n = 70 and unstable plaque group n = 35. Compare the difference of serum uric acid and bilirubin level in each group. Results 1 The level of serum uric acid in plaque group mild higher then no plaque group while no statistically significant difference in the two group P = The level of total serum bilirubin P = and direct serum bilirubin P = in plaque group significant lower than no plaque group. 2 The level of serum uric acid in no plaque group stable plaque group and unstable plaque group were ± μmol /L ± μmol /L and ± 177 μmol /L respectively. And the level of serum uric acid in unstable plaque group significant higher than stable plaque group P = The level of total serum bilirubin in no plaque group stable plaque group and unstable plaque group were ± μmol /L ± μmol / L and ± μmol /L respectively. The level of direct serum bilirubin in no plaque group stable plaque group and unstable plaque group were 6. 2 ± 5. 2 μmol /L 5. 0 ± 4. 2 μmol /L and 4. 8 ± 3. 4 μmol /L respectively. The level of total serum bilirubin P = and direct serum bilirubin P = in unstable plaque group significant lower than no plaque group. The level of total serum bilirubin P = and direct serum bilirubin P = in stable plaque group significant lower than no plaque group. The level of total serum bilirubin P = and direct serum bilirubin P = in unstable plaque group lower than stable plaque group. Conclusions The higher serum uric acid lower total serum bilirubin and lower direct serum bilirubin have a significant relationship with unstable plaque in in acute cerebral infarction patients.
