Abstract

Background. White blood cells are reported as important not only in plaque vulnerability but also in thrombus formation and thrombus growth in acute coronary syndromes. Eosinophils contain granules that promote thrombus formation and thrombus growth in some heart diseases. In this study we aimed to investigate the relation of eosinophil count with coronary thrombus formation in patients with non ST-elevated acute coronary syndrome (NST-ACS).
