The Relationship between Coronary Artery Calcium Score and Monocyte to High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Ratio in Patients with Stable Angina Pectoris.



Coronary artery calcification is a cornerstone marker for coronary atherosclerosis. Therefore, the calculation of the coronary artery calcium score has become a routine method in diagnosing coronary artery disease in recent years. Monocyte to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio reflects proatherogenic and antiatherogenic balance, and this ratio is associated with coronary atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events. This study aimed to investigate the value of monocyte to high-densitylipoprotein cholesterol ratio in predicting coronary atherosclerosis, which coronary artery calcium score determines.
