Özet

OBJECTIVE: Myocardial tissue perfusion is decreased in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX). Systemic inflammation appears to be an important contributor to the diseased microvascular network of these patients. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a surrogate marker of inflammation. Accordingly, we evaluated this biomarker concerning the microvascular circulation of CSX patients.
