BACKGROUND The estimation of coronary risk based on consideration of classical risk factors is insufficient in young patients with myocardial infarction who have low expressions of classical risk factors. Endothelial dysfunction (ED) and markers of vascular inflammation may be more appropriate for risk estimation. The relations among ED and inflammation markers in such patients have not yet been explored. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-one patients (on average 44 years old) in the stable phase… CONTINUE READING
