Background: Despite advances in cardiovascular medicine, acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is still a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Synergy between percutaneous coronary intervention with TAXUS (TM) and Cardiac Surgery (SYNTAX) score is used to determine the extent and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD). Renal resistive index (RRI), a renal Doppler ultrasound parameter, is used to detect renal haemodynamics. Although some risk factors for CAD, including hypertension and diabetes mellitus, were demonstrated to have an association with RRI; a direct relationship between the presence, extent, and complexity of CAD and RRI has not been investigated yet.
