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)
We assessed the prognostic value of the platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) on in-hospital and long-term major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) in a large prospective study. Patients (n = 1938) admitted with acute STEMI within(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate the usefulness of monocyte to HDL cholesterol ratio (MHR) in predicting coronary artery disease severity and future major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS 2661 patient with ACS were enrolled and followed up during median 31.6 months. RESULTS MHR were(More)
Stent thrombosis is a rare but potentially fatal complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs). In recent years, the predictive and prognostic value of the red cell distribution width (RDW) as an indicator of inflammation has been shown in many cardiovascular diseases. Aim of this study was to examine the predictive value of RDW for stent(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this research was to assess the relationship between mitral annular calcification (MAC) and whole blood viscosity (WBV). SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 184 patients with MAC and 133 patients without MAC were enrolled in the study. The WBV was calculated with a confirmed formulation using the hematocrit and total plasma protein at a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Coronary collateral circulation (CCC) has been attributed as inborn bypass mechanisms supporting ischemic myocardium. Various factors have been postulated in CCC. Whole blood viscosity (WBV) has been an underappreciated entity despite close relationships between multiple cardiovascular diseases. WBV can be calculated with a(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) is a miscellaneous clinical entity leading to angina-like symptoms, and electrocardiographic and scintigraphic evidence of ischemia. The impact of this syndrome on myocardial performance has not been comprehensively evaluated. In this study, we sought to evaluate the myocardial energy expenditure (MEE)(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)
