OBJECTIVES Red blood cell microparticles (RBCm) have potential adverse vascular effects and they have been shown to be elevated in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The purpose of this study is to investigate their relationship with biochemical infarct size. METHODS RBCm were quantified with flow cytometry in blood drawn from 60 STEMI patients after a primary angioplasty. The creatine kinase-myocardial brain fraction (CK-MB) was measured at predefined time points and the area under… CONTINUE READING
