Özet

Objective Alterations in aortic stiffness may reflect the elastic. properties of the larger arteries. In many diseases, aortic elastic properties have been investigated to show whether the larger arteries are involved. The elastic properties of aorta in patients with coronary artery ectasia, however, have not been studied yet. We aimed to investigate aortic stiffness parameters in patients with coronary artery ectasia and to compare patients with coronary artery ectasia and coronary artery disease with the control group.
