Özet

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) is among the multiple cardiovascular biomarkers that have been associated with increased cardiovascular disease. Lp-PLA2 appears, however, to be relatively unique in its high specificity for vascular inflammation as opposed to systemic inflammation, its low biologic variability, and its direct role in the causal pathway of plaque inflammation. Nevertheless, the relation between LP-PLA2 and isolated coronary artery ectasia (CAE) has not been investigated yet. The aim of our study was to assess this relation.
