The most robust study (20), which included 399 patients and used the Gensini score, found no correlation between these variables.
The study showed that only MS score and elevated fasting glucose were significantly associated with Gensini score (standardized coefficient, 0.
The number of lesions and severity and anatomic localization of the obstruction were assessed by the Gensini score (12).
We conducted a case-control study of 560 patients with newly diagnosed angiographically documented PCAD and an equal number of control patients with normal coronary arteries (no luminal stenosis at coronary angiography; Gensini score = 0).
The severity of the coronary lesions was estimated using the Gensini score [14], based on the degree of luminal obstruction which may involve either concentric or eccentric lesions.
Spearman's correlation coefficients were also calculated between Gensini score of CAD severity vessel scores hsCRP and lipid profile in all CAD patients.

The distribution of MTHFR genotype was not significantly different in the two observed CAD groups (GENSINI score < 30 and GENSINI score > 30) (Table III).
The GENSINI score was classified into two sub-categories: 0-19=mild, >20=serious.
However, there was no statistically significant difference between the groups in terms of sex, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, smoking, family history of coronary heart diseases, prior myocardial infarctions, prior cerebral vascular diseases, Gensini score, and medications.
Mann Whitney U test was applied to compare the Gensini score of two groups and it showed statistically significant difference (p value less than 0.
