Abstract

Objective: The urocortin (Ucn) hormones have many important roles in the cardiovascular system. Apart from systolic dysfunction (SD), there is no sufficient data on the relationship between serum Ucn-2 and diastolic dysfunction (DD), or coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated serum Ucn-2 levels in SD, DD, and CAD.
