BACKGROUND The efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is limited by the need for repeat revascularization resulting from restenosis. The restenosis rate after treatment for in-stent restenosis (recurrent restenosis) is high (> 30%). Numerous studies have suggested the predictive value of interleukin 6 (IL-6) and transforming growth factor(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) and pentraxin 3 (PTX3) are members of a highly conserved pentraxin superfamily. CRP is synthesized in the liver and may represent a systemic response to local inflammation. PTX3 is synthesized locally at the inflammatory sites and may represent a marker for local inflammation at sites of vessel injury. We compared plasma(More)
Due to recent advances in stent design, stenting without balloon predilation (direct stenting) has become more extensively used in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We performed a randomized study with broad inclusion criteria and early randomization after presentation to compare direct stenting with stenting after balloon predilation in(More)
