BACKGROUND Previous studies proposed that both inflammation, oxidative stress, and impaired endothelial dysfunction have a significant role in occurrence of slow coronary flow (SCF). monocyte-to-high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (MHR) is a recently emerged indicator of inflammation and oxidative stress, which have been studied only in patients with(More)
AIM We investigated the predictive value of monocyte count to HDL ratio (M/H ratio) for stent thrombosis (ST) in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). PATIENTS & METHODS 1170 STEMI patients treated with primary PCI were followed-up for a median of 37.2 months. RESULTS During follow-up, 112 patients were diagnosed as 'definite' ST. The rate of ST(More)
In heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) patients, myocardial blood flow (MBF), myocardial energy expenditure (MEE), myocardial efficiency has been poorly evaluated because of the necessity of invasive procedures in the determination of these parameters. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) can provide reliable data for MEE, MBF (via coronary(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed the predictive value of estimated whole blood viscosity (WBV) in-hospital and long-term cardiovascular outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). MATERIALS & METHODS One thousand eight hundred and thirty-five STEMI patients were followed up for median 34.6 months. WBV was calculated consistent with the de(More)
