Prospective studies have demonstrated that markers of inflammation, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and fibrinogen, predict future cardiovascular disease risk. However, the association between the hsCRP and fibrinogen levels and the extent of coronary stenosis in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) remains controversial. The aim of our case-control study was to assess the association of inflammatory markers with the occurrence and extent of CAD. Serum hsCRP and… CONTINUE READING
