Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum soluble CD40 ligand (5CD4OL) levels, serum urotensin II levels, and serum leptin levels as an indirect indicator of endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, and atherosclerosis at the microvascular level, and the comparison of those values with those of the control group with a normal coronary flow pattern.
