Differential release of cardiac enzymes after percutaneous coronary intervention.


We hypothesized that using calcium channel blockers (CCBs) that dilate microvasculature during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) would result in lower postprocedural creatine phosphokinase (CPK). PCI can be complicated by elevated CPK that has been associated with impaired microvascular perfusion. Nitroglycerin (NTG), the conventional PCI vasodilator… (More)
