The pathophysiology of coronary artery disease (CAD) progression is not well understood. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) may have an important role. In the present observational cohort study we assessed the number of circulating EPCs in 136 patients undergoing elective percutaneous coronary intervention and who had at least one major epicardial vessel with a nonsignificant stenosis [<50% diameter stenosis (DS)], and the relationship between plasma EPC levels and the 24-mo progression of the… CONTINUE READING
