BACKGROUND High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has been used to predict the risk of adverse cardiac events in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Less is known, however, about the association between hs-CRP and long-term outcome after PCI in the Japanese population.Methods and Results:We studied 3,039 all-comer patients with CAD who underwent their first PCI and had data available for preprocedural hs-CRP at Juntendo University… CONTINUE READING
