Background Uric acid is a well known antioxidant; however, the relationship between serum uric acid levels and oxidative stress-caused disorders including cardiovascular diseases is not clear yet. Transthoracic Doppler echocardiographic measurement of coronary flow reserve is a useful too[ to investigate coronary flow reserve and coronary microvascular functions. In this study, we investigated the possible association between serum uric acid concentrations and coronary flow reserve in healthy adults.
