METHODS We performed a meta-analysis of randomised studies comparing patients with LMCAD treated with PCI with(More)
The processes of thrombosis and coagulation are finely regulated by endogenous fibrinolysis maintaining healthy equilibrium. When the balance is altered in favour of platelet activation and/or coagulation, or if endogenous fibrinolysis becomes less efficient, pathological thrombosis can occur. Arterial thrombosis remains a major cause of morbidity and(More)

Her initial baseline tests revealed an elevated troponin; she subsequently underwent a coronary angiogram which showed mild coronary artery disease. Left ventriculogram was performed which showed(More)
