Özet

Background Coronary artery ectasia is defined as localized or diffuse dilation of the coronary arteries exceeding the 1.5-fold of normal adjacent segment. Scarce data are available about the role of inflammation in coronary artery ectasia. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the expression of CD11b and CD45 adhesion molecules in peripheral blood granulocytes, monocytes and lymphocytes from the patients with coronary artery ectasia as possible indicators of inflammation.
