Benefit of CHA2DS2-VASc score in predicting implantable cardioverter defibrillator shocks
Introduction: Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) reduce the risk of sudden death in eligible patients. However, it is thought that there is a relationship between the ICD shocks and increased morbidity and ...
Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio is associated with more extensive, severe and complex coronary artery disease and impaired myocardial perfusion
We investigated the relation between neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (N/L) and the extent, severity, and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial perfusion. Study design: One hundred and fifty-one patients ...
Is mean platelet volume associated with the angiographic severity of coronary artery disease?
Background: Platelet activation and aggregation play key roles both in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and in the developmentof acute thrombotic events. Platelet volume is a marker of platelet activation and function, ...
