Özet

Objective: Ghrelin is expressed in the cardiovascular system and exerts protective effects, including inhibiting progression of atherosclerosis, suppression of vascular inflammation, and stimulating angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of serum ghrelin on coronary collateral development and SYNTAX score in patients with severe coronary artery disease.
