Aims: To develop a risk score, for identifying severe and complex CAD in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methods: In this cross sectional study, 179 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus undergoing coronary angiogram for the evaluation of suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) were recruited at a tertiary-care hospital. Patients were divided into developmental (n = 124) and validation (n = 55) cohorts. Biochemical and anthropometric parameters were analysed. Predictors of severe and complex CAD (SYNTAX Score > 22) were identified by multiple logistic regression analysis. Results: Insulin resistance > 3.4 (OR: 21.26, 95% CI: 5.71–79.09), duration of diabetes > 5 years (OR: 13.50, 95% CI: 3.13–58.25), total cholesterol/HDL-C ratio > 5 (OR: 2.75, 95% CI: 0.66–11.55) and waist circumference > 96 cm (OR: 5.08, 95% CI: 1.27–20.42) were independent predictors of severe and complex CAD, and Manipal Diabetes Coronary Artery Severity Score was developed. Conclusions: The prediction of severe and complex CAD was achieved with this simple score, and thus enabling effective identification of patients beforehand, who are not likely to be suitable for angioplasty.
