Özet

Background and Aim: Epidemiological studies have shown that increased serum uric acid (SUA) level is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). Leukocytes have been shown to play an important role in the atherosclerotic process. The aim of the study was to investigate whether there is any relationship among SUA, leukocyte counts and coronary atherosclerotic burden in patients who are suspected of having CAD.
