Özet

Objective: Aortic sclerosis is observed in 25% of the elderly population, and 2.5% of these patients have severe aortic stenosis (AS). Numerous studies have reported a relationship between the serum calcium or albumin levels and AS. The present study investigated the relationship between the calcium toalbumin ratio (CAR) and AS.
