Özet

OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) are the preferred treatment for coronary artery disease, even though the development of in-stent restenosis (ISR) continues to be an important complication. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is indicative of the inflammatory process and can predict the short- and long-term prognosis of cardiovascular diseases. We investigated the relationship between ISR development and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in bifurcation lesions in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) patients.
