[Attenuation of reperfusion phenomenon by reperfusion using leukocyte-depleted blood during direct percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction].

Leukocytes are important in the occurrence of reperfusion injury in coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This study compared reperfusion injury caused by reperfusion using leukocyte-depleted blood (LD) and that by conventional angioplasty (control) through the reperfusion phenomenon including reperfusion arrhythmia and additional ST… (More)
