Objectives: The relationship between sex hormones such as estrogen, testosteron and coronary artery disease (CAD) has been found to be controversial in various studies. Moreover, recent studies revealed an association between CAD and dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEA-S) which is an endogenous steroid hormone and the precursor of sex hormones. We aimed to investigate the relationship between serum testosterone, estrogen, DHEA levels and CAD.
