Abstract

Gonadal function is thought to be involved in existing atherosclerotic plaques stabilization and might affect reperfusion after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). We aimed to compare the prevalence of hypotestosteromenia between ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and stable angina (SA) patients and between patients with and without microvascular obstruction (MVO).
