Chronic inflammation is one of the main underlying mechanisms in the development of coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated the prognostic value of inflammatory markers for cardiac events occurring more than 6 months after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), i.e. late cardiac events, furthermore we investigated the temporal stability of these markers. Exhausted patients (234) recently treated by successful PCI were studied. Serum samples collected about 6 weeks after PCI (baseline… CONTINUE READING
