Inflammatory response to percutaneous coronary intervention in stable coronary artery disease

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can be regarded as a model for mechanical induced plaque rupture. The objective of this study was to evaluate the inflammatory response to PCI in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) by analysing plasma levels of a wide range of inflammatory mediators. Consecutively, we included 36 patients with stable angina… CONTINUE READING
