Özet

Aim: Resistin plays a role in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease and is related to mortality and morbidity through a number of mechanisms. We hypothesize that plasma resistin levels are increased in the presence of ischemia, as measured by GATED single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (SPECT MPS), in comparison with nonischemic subjects.
