Baseline White Blood Cell Count-To-Apolipoprotein A1 Ratio as a Novel Predictor of Long-Term Adverse Outcomes in Patients Who Underwent Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A Retrospective Cohort Study - PubMed

Background: Previous studies suggested that baseline white blood cell count and apolipoprotein A1 levels were associated with clinical outcomes in patients with coronary heart disease (CAD) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the ratio of baseline white blood cell count-to-apolipoprotein A1 level (WAR) and CAD after PCI have not been investigated. The present study investigated the effects of baseline WAR on long-term outcomes after PCI in patients with CAD.
