Abstract

Objective: The prognostic value of a high platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been reported in patients with non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and different oncologic disorders. We aimed to evaluate the predictive value of the PLR for left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) in patients with non-ST elevated acute coronary syndrome (NST-ACS).
