Özet

Objective: The role of systemic and chronic inflammatory processes in the pathophysiology of rheumatic heart valve disease is well known. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was shown to be an indicator of systemic inflammation. In this study, we aimed to investigate relationship between NLR as a marker of systemic inflammation and rheumatic mitral valve stenosis (RMVS).
