Background: Paraoxonase (PON) is a high-density lipoprotein-bound anti-oxidant enzyme that inhibits atherosclerosis and endothelial dysfunction. Slow coronary flow (SCF) has long been identified and endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis of epicardial coronary arteries and microvasculature were reported to be associated with SCE Consequently, we aimed to investigate the association between coronary blood flow by means of Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction frame count (TFC) and serum PON activity and other laboratory parameters in patients with SCF compared to control cases.
