Time course of release of inflammatory markers after coronary stenting: comparison between bare metal stent and sirolimus-eluting stent
BackgroundHigh levels of release of inflammatory markers after coronary angioplasty are predictors of late restenosis. Sirolimus-eluting stent reduces the risk of restenosis. Aim of the studyToExpand
