Most cross-sectional and case-control studies indicate that an increased plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) level is an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, this is still a controversial issue. Recently, it was reported that the level of tHcy is related to the extent and severity of CAD. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between plasma tHcy levels and the presence, extent, and severity of CAD.
