Özet

Purpose: Interestingly, prostate-specific antigen (PSA), which is used to monitor prostate disorders, has been suggested to be beneficial in estimating prognosis associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship of serum levels of PSA and free PSA (fPSA) with prognosis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), extent of CAD and major adverse cardiac events in patients with acute coronary syndromes.
