Mechanism of coronary flow reserve reduction in systemic sclerosis: insight from intracoronary pressure wire studies.
OBJECTIVE Functional impairment of coronary microcirculation is thought to be a major pathway in the development of primary cardiac involvement in SSc; however, the underlying mechanism is not fullyExpand

Clinical outcomes in patients treated for coronary in-stent restenosis with drug-eluting balloons: Impact of high platelet reactivity
Background The impact of high platelet reactivity (HPR) on clinical outcomes after elective percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) with drug-eluting balloons (DEB) due to in-stent restenosis (ISR)Expand
