Abstract

Background: Red cell distribution width (RDW) and fragmented QRS (fQRS) complexes have also been reported to be predictors of cardiac events and all-cause mortality in coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to investigate the association of serum red cell distribution width (RDW) levels and fQRS in patients with non-ST elevated acute coronary syndrome (NST-ACS).
