Abstract

Background: The plausible mechanisms regarding the relationship between periodontitis and coronary artery disease (CAD) has long been the focus of studies. This study aimed to test the hypothesis that higher periodontal inflamed surface area (PISA) values have positive correlations with increased complete blood parameters in patients with CAD.
