The prevalence of these ischemic heart disease levels in fractional flow reserve (FFR) interrogated vessels remains largely unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS Using intracoronary(More)
The frequency and profile of lymphocyte subsets within the culprit coronary artery were investigated in 33 patients with myocardial infarction and compared to their systemic circulating counterparts. T cell subsets including CD4(+)CD28null, activated and regulatory T-cells, TH1/TH2/TH17 phenotypes, NK and B-cells were studied in intracoronary (IC) and(More)
