Abstract

Background: Previous studies proposed that both inflammation, oxidative stress, and impaired endothelial dysfunction have a significant role in occurrence of slow coronary flow (SCF). monocyte-to-high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (MHR) is a recently emerged indicator of inflammation and oxidative stress, which have been studied only in patients with chronic kidney disease.
