BACKGROUND Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet-to- lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) have been shown to be helpful in predicting adverse cardiovascular events. However, to date, in the literature, there have been no studies demonstrating the relationship between EAT, MPV, PLR, NLR, and(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is an emerging inflammatory indicator which is closely associated with adverse cardiovascular events. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the relationship between PLR and the severity of calcific aortic stenosis (AS). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was designed as a retrospective study. A total of 86(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary slow-flow (CSF) is an angiographic phenomenon characterised by delayed opacification of vessels in the absence of any evidence of obstructive epicardial coronary disease. QT interval dispersion (QTD) reflects regional variations in ventricular repolarisation and cardiac electrical instability and has been reported to be longer in(More)
INTRODUCTION Impaired diastolic flow is characterized by decreased left ventricular (LV) filling diastole, abnormal LV distensibility, or delayed relaxation. B-Type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is an indicator of various cardiovascular diseases and body volume status. The aim of this study was to determine whether the lowering of dialysate sodium (Na) levels(More)
