Özet

The potential of individuals to develop coronary collateral circulation is often neglected but is of potential major importance in myocardial vulnerability. Likewise, the effect of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on collateral vessel development is not known. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of CKD on collateral development in patients with advanced coronary artery disease.
