Objective: Mitral annular calcification (MAC) is characterized by degenerative calcification of the mitral valve annulus. Atherosclerosis plays role in progression of MAC. Fetuin A is the inhibitor of pathological calcification. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between MAC and fetuin A with carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) and endothelial dysfunction.
