Abstract: Introduction: Evidence indicates that the associations between coronary slow flow (CSF), cystatin C (Cys C), and body mass index (BMI) are unclear. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to determine the association among the above-mentioned parameters in female patients. Methods: This was a descriptive-analytical study and the participants were those who were referred to the Shohada Cardiovascular Center of Urmia in 2015-2016. The participants were measured by a quantitative method under angiography (corrected TIMI frame count, CTFC) for CSF assessment, followed by evaluating physiological indices and the serum Cys C by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Finally, Pearson correlation coefficient test was used to analyze the correlations among CTFC, Cys C, and BMI, and a significance level of P < 0.05 was used for this test. Results: Sixty-six female patients (mean age: 57.01±8.25 years) took part in this study. The correlations among Cys C with CTFC, and BMI (r=-0.189, P=0.128 and r=0.044, P=0.724, respectively) and BMI with CTFC (r=-0.178, P=0.153) were not meaningful in female patients’ who were candidates for angiography. Conclusion: In general, the results suggested that serum Cys C cannot be considered as a predictive biomarker for the prognostic stratification of CSF and BMI in female patients aged 34-73 years who were candidates for angiography.
