UNLABELLED The tension of the arterial wall increases the proliferation of the vascular smooth muscle cells which is one of the basic mechanisms of the reocclusion after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of the study was to evaluate the significance of the pulse pressure (PP) in predicting the restenosis after PCI. METHODS We retrospectively studied 84 patients (average age 53.9 +/- 10.1; 69 males and 15 females)--35 patients with angiographically proved restenosis and 49… CONTINUE READING
