OBJECTIVES The underlying mechanism of slow coronary flow (SCF) has yet to be elucidated. Increased red cell distribution width (RDW) and uric acid level may be indicative of an underlying inflammatory state. We aimed to investigate RDW and serum uric acid levels in patients with normal coronary arteries and SCF without stenosis. STUDY DESIGN The study included 46 consecutive patients (25 males, 21 females; mean age 54 ± 11 years) with angiographically normal coronary arteries but having SCF… CONTINUE READING
