Özet

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2), a novel marker of vulnerable plaque to prone rupture, is a predictor of both cardiovascular event and cerebrovascular event, and highly sensitive-C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is an acute-phase response protein implicated in a broad range of cardiovascular diseases. We aimed to examine the association between periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMs) with circulating Lp-PLA2 and hs-CRP levels in patients with PLMs.
