The distribution of MTHFR genotype was not significantly different in the two observed CAD groups (GENSINI score < 30 and GENSINI score > 30) (Table III).
Additionally, they were separated into two groups according to Gensini scoring: those with mild (n=51; Gensini score, 1-20; mild atherosclerosis) and severe atherosclerosis (n=68; Gensini score, >20; severe atherosclerosis) (14).
In EST-positive group, coronary angiography was performed to determine the presence and severity of coronary artery lesions as assessed by Gensini score.
After Gensini scores were determined, 36 points (median value) was chosen as an appropriate cut-off value and patients were divided into two groups of those with Gensini score [less than or equal to] 36 points (absent or mild coronary atherosclerosis, mean: 9.
Atherosclerotic burden was measured by the modified Gensini score once the patient was diagnosed with coronary artery disease (8).
