原始语种摘要: OBJECTIVES(#br)We aimed to associate a coronary artery disease (CAD) presence and severity with endothelial dysfunction (ED), carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) and Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor (TFPI).(#br)BACKGROUND(#br)ED has a central role in atherosclerosis. CIMT and TFPI activity are also related with atherosclerosis and CAD.(#br)METHODS(#br)In our prospective observational study, 50 patients had CAD and 30 had normal coronary arteries. Endothelial function was evaluated by endothelium-dependent flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) and nitroglycerine-mediated dilatation (NMD) measurements. CIMT and Serum TFPI levels were also measured.(#br)RESULTS(#br)TFPI was a statistically significant determinant between the two groups with an increased level in CAD (+) group (84.9 ± 19.3 vs 70.2...
