The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of coronary artery angioplasty on the recruitment of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in patients with angina pectoris. A total of 66 patients treated by coronary stenting were enrolled in the PCI group and 17 patients that underwent angiography alone were enrolled in the control… CONTINUE READING
