Abstract

Background and aims: Thiol/disulfide homeostasis has an important role in the antioxidant defense system. Oxidative stress may contribute to the pathogenesis of coronary artery ectasia. The aim of this study was to evaluate plasma thiol levels and thiol/disulfide homeostasis in patients with isolated coronary artery ectasia.
