In this preliminary study to assess the possibility of using ascorbic acid to prevent post-percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography (PTCA) restenosis, the incidence of restenosis was significantly less in 50 patients receiving 500 mg/day of oral ascorbic acid than in 51 control patients. Thus, ascorbic acid, a potent natural antioxidant, appeared to be possibly effective in attenuating post-PTCA restenosis.
