Abstract

Aim Calcific aortic stenosis (AS) is a common valvular disease especially in elderly population. Inflammation plays significant role in the pathophysiological mechanism. Systemic immune-inflammation index (SII) is a novel marker of immune system and inflammation that includes neutrophil, lymphocyte, and platelet cell counts. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive value of SII in calcific severe AS.
