Objective: Atherosclerosis plays an important role in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). There is a closer relationship between atherosclerosis and inflammatory cytokines. Commonly used scoring systems for risk stratification in clinical practice are GENSINI and SYNergy between PCI with TAXUS and Cardiac Surgery (SYNTAX) scores for determining disease severity and method of revascularization. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between interleukin (IL)-6 levels and both GENSINI and SYNTAX scores in patients with CAD.
