The aim of the study was to compare platelet activity between patients with an occlusion of bypass graft after coronary artery bypass graft surgery and restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI); that is, between patients with reappearance of ischemia after two different kinds of coronary revascularization. Thirty patients were studied in a cross-sectional designed study. Fifteen of them were patients with the worst bypass graft patency from Prague-4 study (control protocol… CONTINUE READING
