Özet

Background Endothelium plays an important role in regulating coronary vascular tone. In addition, several of cardiovascular risk factors that are associated metabolic syndrome have been reported to be associated with endothelial dysfunction. In the present study we aimed to evaluate the coronary blood flow in patients with metabolic syndrome by means of the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) frame count.
