Objective: Nesfatin-1 is a novel anorectic neuropeptide with potent metabolic regulatory effects. It regulates blood pressure, heart rate, cardiomyocyte metabolism and permeability. SYNTAX score, which is an angiographic scoring system, defines the grade and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to evaluate the relationship between nesfatin-1 level and severity of CAD according to the SYNTAX score in patients with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).
