Reduced antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel assessed with multiple electrode aggregometry (MEA) and vasodilator stimulated phosphoprotein-phosphorylation (VASP-P) assay has been proven to predict major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) after coronary stenting. So far no consecutive registry has evaluated the usefulness of different adenosine(More)
BACKGROUND Growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15) is a member of the transforming growth factor ß family and has been associated with inflammation, cancer, aging, diabetes mellitus (DM) and atherosclerosis. Determinants of GDF-15 have been investigated in several conditions. We aimed to investigate determinants of GDF-15 plasma levels in patients with(More)
Elevated platelet turnover contributes to high platelet reactivity. High platelet reactivity after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). The purpose of this study was to determine the prognostic value of platelet turnover and function with regard to MACE after PCI with stent implantation. In(More)
