introduction and Objective: There are conflicting data on the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in coronary artery ectasia (CAE). It is unclear whether CAE is associated with high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT). We there-fore investigated major cardiovascular risk factors, serum GGT and hs-CRP levels in a large population of patients with CAE.
