The Relation Between Blood Pressure Reverse-Dipping and Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio in Hypertensive Patients
Reverse dipper hypertension and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been investigated as a predictor for cardiovascular risk. The relationship between NLR and other circadien blood pressure (BP) patterns has been ...
Platelet to lymphocyte ratio predicts all-cause mortality in patients with carotid arterial disease
Background. Platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been demonstrated as a risk and prognostic marker in many of cardiovascular diseases. A relationship between PLR and severity of carotid stenosis has been shown. The aim ...
