OBJECTIVES This study sought to characterize leukocyte and platelet activation and adhesion molecule expression after coronary angioplasty. BACKGROUND Coronary angioplasty can be regarded as a clinical model of postischemic inflammation because this intervention leads to the release of inflammatory mediators as a result of plaque rupture and endothelial injury. METHODS In 13 patients with stable angina (mean [ +/- SEM] age 56.0 +/- 2.4 years, range 44 to 79), blood samples were drawn from… CONTINUE READING
