Abstract

In this study we assessed whether serum endothelin-1 levels were associated with indexes of disease severity in unstable angina, including troponin I, C-reactive protein, and transient myocardial ischemia. Endothelin-1 levels were higher in patients who had transient myocardial ischemia and in those who had 3-vessel disease on angiography but were not significantly correlated with levels of C-reactive protein and troponin I.
