BACKGROUND Polymorphonuclear neutrophils have been implicated in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. A substantial body of evidence has emerged to implicate the role of specific leucocyte derived enzyme myeloperoxidase in atherogenesis, since its initiation through progression until destabilization. The aim of the study was to determine the presence of polymorphonuclear neutrophils activation after coronary stenting, to compare this activation between stable and unstable setting and to… CONTINUE READING
